After the war Jaguar. like other manufacturers wanted to produce and sell exciting new models. Development work on a new flagship sedan model to replace the prewar design had been started even before the end of the second world war. However. as mentioned in the MK V and XK120 pages. in the austerity years after the war. development took longer than Jaguar could afford to wait if they were not to loose potential sales. so in the end. major components that were ready were incorporated into other models. both to give these components a trial run. and also to introduce face lifted cars to a fickle public that might otherwise have bought other makes. Thus it was that the new chassis developed for the MK VII first appeared in the MK V model. and the then all-new XK engine was first fitted to the XK120. which was initially intended as a “concept car” of the day. The MK V. while it looked very similar to the pre-war design was apparently enough to hold potential buyers attention until the introduction of the MK VII with its promise of both new styling and the marvellous new XK engine.
The pieces finally all came together with the introduction of the MK VII in 1950. Logically this model should have been the MK VI but legend has it that. as Bentley had already used that name. Sir William thought he would upstage them with a “newer” Mark. The car featured styling which was evolutionary from the previous MK V model. but with definite hints of the beautiful lines of the XK120. It was also a much bigger car than the MK V – 9 inches longer and 4 inches wider. Taking cues from the XK120 it had a somewhat unadorned appearance with even the the radiator grille lacking a prominent chrome surround.
It was available initially only as a 4 door sedan with 4 speed manual transmission. Apparently a drop head coupe model was considered. but never produced. From the outset it was very popular and sold well. especially in the USA where it earned valuable foreign currency for England. It was reputably the American buyers who let Jaguar know. that while they loved the car. they would appreciate an automatic gear box. and Jaguar responded by making a Borg Warner automatic option available in 1953.
Jaguar updated from the MK VII to the MK VIIM in September 1954 and numerous small changes were made. External identifiers include the changing of the old fashioned trafficator semaphore signals for fender mounted flashing turn signals. a more “wrap around” rear bumper. free standing fog lamps instead of being fitted flush to the front of the car. and more modern headlamps. Inside the car the major change was fitment of a full width bench front seat on automatic models. Engine power was up 30bhp with the use of the engine from the XK140 of the same year. which featured high lift camshafts.
This silver over burgundy Mark VII M appears to be in largely original condition. It runs and drives very well. The undercarriage is clean and free of any visible rust. The body is straight and paint has few flaws. We are not sure when it was painted. Mileage currently showing at 44. 92 miles. This one of the rarer left hand drive M Sedans/Saloons. The 3. 4L 6-cylinder engine puts out approximately 190BHP at 5500 RPM. It has the Borg and Warner 3 speed automatic transmission. It has a sunroof and wheel rimbellishers (standard options on the M). We are told it comes from long term ownership and has always been serviced and well cared for; as the appearance of the car suggests this to be correct.
