The Jaguar Mk V was introduced at the 1948 London Motor Show. br/>sharing a stand with the new Jaguar XK120. Sales of the Mk V soon
outstripped that of the XK120. The Mk V retained the overhead
valve. pushrod engine in 2½ litre and 3½ litre formats. The 2½
litre produced a claimed 104 bhp whilst the larger 3½ litre unit
had a boosted power output of 126 bhp. The chassis was a new design
with double wishbones and torsion bar independent front suspension.
The car also had hydraulic brakes and an all pressed steel body.
The styling carried forward design ideas from the pre-war SS Jaguar
with the upright radiator grill and the leaping Jaguar mascot as an
option. Jaguar claimed a top speed of 90. 7mph; however. Norman
Dewis. Jaguar's test driver and engineer at the time. verified that
he had once achieved 90mph but the thrill of the moment did not
encourage a repeat of the feat.
We are proud to offer this Jaguar Mk V manufactured on the 2nd
October 1950 and today is presented with Royal Ivory coachwork and
dark tan leather. It benefits from the larger and more powerful 3½
litre engine that. according to the vendor. happily cruises at an
indicated 70mph. The Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms that this
Mk V is an original UK right hand drive. matching numbers example.
The original supplying dealer was Western Motors. of Bristol; in
fact. the dealer's badge still sits proudly upon the dashboard. A
record of all ownership history has been researched and listed and
includes; this includes the first owner recorded on the Heritage

Originally black. the coachwork was refinished in its current
colour in 1992 and still presents well with only small areas of
paint defects that do not detract from the overall splendid look of
this Jaguar. No corrosion is evident on the upper surfaces and a
look underneath shows the chassis to be in clean order also. The
steel sunroof operates without drama. On the inside. the dark tan
interior is inviting. whilst the leather is in excellent order with
only a few very minor scuffs to it. The woodwork and veneers have
survived well with the dashboard and door cappings having been
recently re-finished. A set of new carpets and door cards have also
been fitted.

Mechanically. this Jaguar has benefitted from regular services and
replacement parts including a voltage control box. 2 new front
tyres. ignition points. spark plugs. cooling system hoses. fan
belt. hand brake cables. gear selector rubber. headlight reflector. br/>exhaust mountings. number plates and an electric manually
controlled Kenlow cooling fan. On a recent test. this Mk V started
2nd turn when cold and once warmed up drove extremely well and
easily. Gauges operated and displayed the correct readings whilst
the car drove in a relaxed manner without wandering all over the
road; a testament to the condition of the chassis and the vendor's
determination to maintain this Jaguar well after investing
approximately £5000 in its upkeep during ownership. Although MoT
test exempt. the car has an MoT test certificate valid until 10th
February 2015 and Historic tax valid until the end of August

An extensive history file accompanies NHU 743 and includes the
previously mentioned Jaguar Heritage Certificate as well as old MoT
certificates. tax discs (including a facsimile of the original). br/>invoices and receipts. photographs (in its previous colour) and the
history of all owners from new. There are also two Jaguar
Enthusiasts magazines; one of which from March 1998 features NHU
743 on the front cover. while the other from October 2013 has a
photograph of the car on page 94.

The magnificent bonnet and grill. its elegant flowing lines and its
fully working semaphore indicators give this Jaguar Mk V a charm of
its own. This surely represents an ideal opportunity for the lucky
new owner given the very keen estimate.
