Model: Mark V
The Jaguar Mark V was launched in 1948 and produced for a relatively short 3 year period, with the last cars built at Coventry in mid-1951. Around 10,500 cars were built in total and it was available either as a 4-door saloon or 2-door DHC (convertible) model, powered by either a 2½ litre or 3½ litre straight 6 engine, mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
This Mark V has the 3½ litre engine and was produced as a Home market model in February 1951. Little further history is known until it was repatriated to the UK from Canada in 1992. It then appears to have remained unused for some years until a new owner commissioned a full professional restoration between 2009 and 2011. The car was sold shortly afterwards to a new Jersey-based owner.
This luxurious Jaguar has subsequently been very well cared for and remains in a first-rate and very usable condition.
