We are delighted to offer this 1947 Jaguar Mk IV 3½ litre. which
is surely one of the most elegant of sporting Jaguars offered in
the post war era. It is important to note for any potential
purchaser of this motor car that three versions of the Mk IV were
available. all with different engine sizes. 1½. 2½ and 3½ litres
(the 1½ also having a shorter wheelbase and a four cylinder
engine). The six cylinder 3½ litre here today is the most sought
after of the three because of its power delivery and its
comfortable long distance touring capability.

It is believed that this Jaguar Mk IV started life in Scotland
and has also spent time in Northern Ireland and Italy. Residing
within the history file is an Italian registration document along
with an 'ASI' (Automotoclub Storico Italiano) certificate. stating
the technical characteristics and correctness of the car. an old UK
green log book. Northern Ireland log book and old UK MoT test
certificates. There is also a useful and extensive workshop

The Jaguar appears to be in generally original condition. br/>particularly the interior with its untouched and nicely patinated
leather. The coachwork is unblemished with no apparent dents or
imperfections. The vinyl roof compliments the coachwork and gives
this Jaguar a rather distinguished look. The engine compartment is
very clean and smart which certainly gives the impression of a well
cared for and loved car. On starting the engine. there is no
evidence of any smoking and the car soon settles into a smooth
idle. The Jaguar pulls away easily and gear changes are a pleasure.
Further benefits include a steel sunroof and the opening
windscreen. both of which are functional.

Having spent several years in heated dry storage. the car has
recently been re-commissioned with electrical and mechanical works
being carried out to improve reliability. Although MoT exempt. we
are assured that this UK registered Jaguar Mk IV will arrive at the
sale with a fresh MoT test certificate and its Historic tax. valid
until the end of January 2015.

It cannot be overstated on how this car looks in the flesh
rather than just by the photographs. in particular the interior. br/>which is very inviting. This car ticks all the boxes and with that
in mind. the lucky new owner may drive the Jaguar away from the
sale in style.
