This history of all four generations of compact Jaguar and their Daimler equivalents manufactured between 1955 to 1969 will be of great interest to all motoring and Jaguar enthusiasts. Topics covered include buying and owning a Jaguar saloon model; design, development and styling; the cars' competition successes and rare special-bodied models. Superbly illustrated with 208 colour photographs.it did a power of good for Jaguara#39;s image around the world. The new 3.4litre Jaguar could be had with three different gearbox options: fourspeed manual, fourspeed manual with overdrive (both using the Moss gearbox) or threespeed automatic. The automatics were not quite as fast as cars with manual gearboxes, but the losses were mainly in acceleration. For the 3.4, Jaguar had chosen the same Borg Warner type DG automatic box as they had used in the Mk VII saloons since 1953.
