The 1945-1948 Jaguar Mk. IV. Jaguar's first cars after World War
II. were essentially continuations of the 1938-39 models. Very few
of these cars were built for the righthand drive markets as steel
was being rationed for goods for export. The origin of the name is
rather odd since. back in 1948. there had been no Mk. I to IV
Jaguars; the Mk. IV designation was only given to the predecessor
after the launch of the Mk. V to make identification easier. Most
were four-door saloons and all shared the same body shell except
for the 1. 5 Litre model which had a six-inch shorter wheelbase and
had a four- instead of six-cylinder engine. This was the first car
to bear the legendary Jaguar name after 1945 (SS having been
dropped for understandable marketing reasons after the war!) and
the Mk. IV Jaguar is felt by many to be the epitome of British car
design of its era. The huge chrome head lamps. sweeping wings and
running boards. luxurious leather interior. French polished wood
all speak of style and opulence.

The history of this most elegant of sporting tourers is well
documented coming as it does with. not only a comprehensive
history. but also an extensive collection of medals. cups and
plaques attesting to its quality and renown within Jaguar circles.
Presented in extremely original condition throughout. it does
appear to have been repainted some time ago. the patina has now
softened and the exterior matches the interior well. Black leather
surrounds the occupants inside. the seats having been re-stuffed
and offering excellent support. Complete with working trafficators. br/>rear blind and a willing engine. this charming example has most
certainly been loved. having belonged to the previous owner for
over 45 years. Despite cars of this heritage being exempt
from MoT test certificates. this enthusiastic owner insists all his
cars carry them and are fully running and roadworthy. Indeed over
£1. 00 has just been spent on the braking system alone. The
boot also plays host to a full complement of tools; rare to find in
cars of this vintage. and she is used regularly for journeys in the
surrounding countryside. A delightful early post-war Jaguar.
