I think it's a 420 [XJ16] for rear badge and higher front wing.

I had forgotten the existence of that model. I used to drive a 420G, a long time ago.

Surely you don't drive a 420G, you navigate it?

With the weird variable rate Adwest power steering it was more like guess and God!

The steering was quite low geared and twiddly for half a turn either side of dead ahead, then the ratio suddenly changed to mean that the front wheels turned a lot quicker. I upset my boss, whose car it was, and some folk on the pavement, by mounting a kerb with the rear wheels at a T-junction in Chesterfield. Forty-odd years ago. Very odd years.
