Jaguar Mks 1 and 2, S-Type and 420


James Taylor


A history of all four generations of compact Jaguar, and their Daimler equivalents, tracing the gradual development of Sir William Lyons’ original idea over a period between 1955 and 1969. From the powerful, luxury MK 1 and 2 cars to the 4.2-litre 420, this book covers design, devleopment and styling; special-bodied variants; racing performance; buying and owning a compact Jaguar saloon model and, finally, specifications and production figures.
