Known History

The Jaguar Mark V made its debut at the Jaguar booth during the London Motor Show in October 1948. While the XK120 also debuted at the same event, keen Jaguar customers appreciated the styling that was reminiscent of the Mark IV that came before. A new 120” wheelbase chassis, torsion bar suspension and 4-wheel hydraulic brakes provided vast improvements. Styling choices were reserved for the 4 door saloon and incredibly stylish Drophead Coupe with a three position cabriolet top. Offered with either the 2½ or the 3½ liter inline engine, the Mark V proved to be a popular model for Jaguar until production ended in 1951, despite its limited build numbers.

 

The 1951 Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupe featured here is finished in stunning all black with a beautiful red leather interior. This Jaguar Mark V comes from the final year of production and was previously subjected to a comprehensive body-off frame restoration. A prized possession by a single owner for more than 50 years, this classic Jaguar would make the perfect addition to any premier collection today. Accompanying this investment-grade Mark V are its original owner’s manual, dealer material, incredible trunk mounted tool kit, Jaguar Heritage Certificate and more. We are proud to offer this 1948 Jaguar 3½ Litre Mark IV Drophead Coupe to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the appeal of this iconic model.
