Jaguar - Jaguar Mk 9

The Jaguar Mk 9 was produced from 1958. It was a 4 door saloon with a 3.8 litre (3781 cc) engine having a 4mm increase in bore over the original Jaguar twin cam design. This operation had first been done in the USA by Alfred Momo who was developing Briggs Cunninghams pair of Lister Jaguars, and Momos work and findings were shared with Jaguar in Coventry who eventually adopted the same larger bore size, which was first used in the Jaguar Mk9 as well as an option part way through the XK150 production. The Jaguar Mk9 was identical to its predesessor Mk8, apart from having the larger capacity 3.8 litre engine. The Mk 9 was also the first Jaguar production car to have disc brakes fitted to all four wheels. The Jaguar Mk 9 was in production until 1961, when it was replaced with the Mk 10.

Jaguar Mk9 tyre fitment was originally cross ply size 6.70x16. We would recommend the radial equivalent size which is 185R16, and Blockley produces an excellent steel belt construction, high speed rated 185VR16 tyre. See details below:
