The Jaguar was top-of-the line for Schwinn middleweights in 1962. When fully equipped with a three-speed hub, like this Radiant Red example (same “candy red” color Schwinn later called Flamboyant Red), they were spendy. The Jaguar, with it’s rear “crutch tip” rack, German “dual articulated” front rack, “ball” headlamp, and “teardrop” rear reflector, sold for $87.95 in 1962. This was a lot of extra cash for a kid or his parents when compared to the basic single-speed Typhoon that went for $42.95 at the time. All original, including Schwinn Westwind whitewalls.
