Introduced at the 1948 London Motor Show. the Jaguar Mk V shared
the Jaguar stand with the all new XK120. The Mk V retained the
overhead valve. pushrod engine in 2½ litre and 3½ litre formats.
The 3½ litre unit had a boosted power output of 126 bhp; some 22
bhp more than the smaller 2½ litre unit. The chassis was a new
design with double wishbones and torsion bar independent front
suspension and also featured 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. Available either in saloon or drop head coupé (DHC). br/>only 977 3½ litre DHC's were built but only around 395 were right
hand drive (RHD). of these. most were exported. It is believed that
less than 100 of the RHD version were built and kept for the UK and
of these less than 10 are believed to currently survive.

Today. we are proud to offer a genuine example of a rare UK
supplied. RHD. matching numbers Mk V DHC. According to its Jaguar
Heritage Certificate. this example was manufactured on 1st December
1950. The original buff log book confirms the date of first
registration as 3rd February 1951 and the Jaguar today still
retains its original registration number. The recorded 38. 00 miles
are believed to be genuine as gathered from the history file and
old MoT test certificates.

Originally Gunmetal. the coachwork is now presented in Opalescent
Silver with an excellent matching blue hide interior. The sweeping
lines of this magnificent motor car are carried by the original
steel wheels and correct 'Ace' wheel trims and painted hub caps. On
a recent test. it was found that once seated in the comfortable
leather seats you are presented with a dashboard sporting an array
of instruments and a period radio to keep the driver well informed
and entertained. The Jaguar started easily and soon settled to a
smooth idle. On the road it drove extremely smoothly with easy gear
changes. without the need to double de-clutch and without having to
fight to keep it in a straight line; a testament to the condition
of the suspension and chassis. Whilst on the road. the gauges
displayed the correct readings with the oil pressure indicating 50
psi. The original semaphore indicators have been disabled with the
light units converted to indicate in their place; a conversion
allowing for modern day road conditions and drivers. We are advised
that these semaphore indicators may be reactivated without undue
difficulty. Of special note is the tool tray to be found within its
own compartment stowed in the boot lid; all the tools are present
and correct - a rare full collection indeed.

A large history file details the full record of ownership (nine
owners researched and recorded) and includes the maintenance
history with many receipts for works carried out. A new owner will
find useful the original Owners Operating and Maintenance Handbook. br/>workshop manual and a spare set of keys. A wonderful opportunity to
acquire a rare UK right hand drive Mk V Jaguar with the more
desirable 3½ litre engine whose elegance is perfect for showing or
driving at the most prestigious events.
