The Jag Mk10 was a really exotic car and huge too. There's one parked on the street near where I live - slowly rotting away sadly, but it's taken a few knocks from passing traffic just because it is so wide. I wonder how many people bought them and the couldn't fit them in the garage? Later on Jaguar re-badged this car as the 420G and brought out the 420 which is a hybrid between this and the S Type, in effect it has the same profile as the Mk10, but is a foot narrower. I owned a 420 badged as a Daimler Sovereign and even cut down it is still a huge car. Curiously enough my Daimler started life the same pale blue colour as this model although it is silver now. Smooth as silk to drive, but incredibly noisy because of all the chrome round the doors.

My blue model is very nice, boxed and still retaining its suitcases; Chris Davidson's lovely boxed example in the rarer dark blue metallic also shows the car as it was 45 years ago. I actually owned one of these which I got new in 1962, one of the few Corgis I actually got my hands on. It had two suitcases in the boot, one of which opened and I loved it. Sadly after  my time my nephews got at it and snapped off the bonnet, now I don't think there's anything that can be done with it.

Corgi released the MkX Jag in 1962 keeping it in the range until 1967. There are a number of colour variations; pale blue, sea green, metallic silver, metallic green, metallic magenta (rose), light blue metallic, mid blue metallic, dark blue metallic, seats can be red or yellow. A mint & boxed example in any colour is always going to be worth a lot of money. Metallic dark blue with red seats is the most prized, but green, rose & silver get a premium too.
