The 1945-1948 Jaguar Mk. IV was Jaguar's first car after World
War II and 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 original distributer of this charming post-war Jaguar is
detailed as Henlys Ltd of London although. since then. it has spent
some time in a Belgian museum. Indeed. it was acquired from there
by the vendor. We are told that every part of body is original
although the brakes have been upgraded. It was sympathetically
restored in 2010 with the trim sewn to the original design and the
new interior roof-lining also as per the original. The original
rims sport excellent chrome-work and the dash. complete with
original auxiliary instruments is also beautifully original.
Enclosed within the history file is a Jaguar/Daimler Heritage Trust
Certificate dating from 2003 and the Belgian transport certificate.
A most elegant reflection of bygone motoring.
