Known History
This S Type was supplied new to Jaguar Cars New York on 4th July 1966. The car was owned by Mr Marsh Baldwin from 1977-1986, and was imported into the UK in April, 1997 by a Mr Parkin and purchased by the last owner in 1999. At that time the mileage was reading 80,500 miles. The speedo was then reset to zero and the car was completely rebuilt and converted to RHD. The Speedo now indicates 30,049.

Marque History
Announced 30 September 1963 it was a technically more sophisticated development of the Mark 2, offering buyers a more luxurious alternative without the size and expense of the Mark X. The S-Type sold alongside the Mark 2, as well as the Jaguar 420 following its release in 1966.

It used a mid-scale version of the Mark X Independent Rear Suspension to replace the Mark 2’s live rear axle and featured longer rear bodywork, among other styling and interior changes. The S-Type was available with either 3,4 or 3,8 litre XK engines but only in twin carburettor form because the triple carb setup would not fit into what was essentially still the Mark 2 engine bay. The S-Type remained on sale until the arrival of the Jaguar XJ6 in 1968.
