A california car from new, this magnificent 1967 Jaguar 420 was owned by one of the most remarkable people in the nation: Dr. Bruce Virgil Elings. A professor of physics at UCSB, he became an incredibly successful businessman who founded the billion dollar company Digital Instruments, and a philanthropist who donated 3.5 Millions of his personal wealth to MIT for a new building, established in Santa Barbara’largest public park, and a geared who started the solvang Motorcycle museum.
the 420 comes with its original tan vinyl pouch holding all the factory books and brochures, even the lubrication chart.
Originally sold on 7/23/1967 in posh Encine by long defunct frank millard sport cars, inc.,
this Jaguar has been a Santa Barbara resident almost since day one,. It still carries its original 1967 Black and Yellow California license plates, front and back. The car’s service booklet was faithfully filled in every single year by Butts Buick, back in the day the most prestigious foreign-car dealership in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. When Dr. Elings drove the car another 18k miles during his tenture, bringing the actual mileage up to 58,755. The car was serviced by the book, regardless of cost, and must be one of the finest unrestored Jaguars of the model in the country.
Residing in a clean engine compartment is the 420’s incredible 4.2 liter engine which it shares with the legendary E-type. The walter Hassan-desgned 245HP DOHC straight six features twin SU carburetors nd turns the jaguar into a serious contender, able to travel north of 120mph with 5 occupants aboard.
the motor runs very strong and smooth, keeping exceptional oil pressure even during brisk freeway jaunts, without any untowrd noises, smoke, or oil leaks to report. It’s as healthy as the proverbial ox shifts and none of the sluggishness high mileage cars often experience.
Jaguar’s coach work is straight as an arrow and appears 100% rust and accident free.
The car was repainted in its original Primrose color and, despite its age, the finish is holding up remarkably well with just very minor signs of use. the lavishly applied chrome is free of pits or corrosion and sparkles like a freshly minted silver dollar.
Fully loaded this saloon rolls on very desirable, factory chrome wire wheels with center knock-offs.
The wheels are in very good condition throughout with no issues such as broken spokes or curb rash to report.
only the finest natural materials found their way into a Jaguar Four-twenty, lending the cockpit a special aroma found only in a Jaguar of this vintage. For example, the headliner is made of Wilton wool. It is immaculately clean.
All three dome lights work.
Acres of wood not only enhance, they actually create the dashboard. The six round dials and centrally located row of toggle switches were lifted straif=ght from Jaguar’s sports with the sole exception of the clock, which shows the core t time twice daily, all of the gauges and switches work as they should, and that includes the fabulous Audiotex AM/FM stereo as well as the rear air conditioning. M|Notice that the 420 has two furl tamnks and two fuel pumps, just in case lucas, the god of darkness, has a bad day.
Breathtakingly preserved Connoly hydes seem flawless and give testimony to the exceptional care this jaguar has always received.
All the lights work on this car, including backup lamps. Note original”BUTTS-Santa Barbara” license plate frame, practical pop-out quarter windows.
