![CDATA[
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 right hand 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 bodyshell 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 headlamps, sweeping wings and running boards, luxurious leather interior, French polished wood all speak of style and opulence.
Supplied originally on 9th September 1947, this right hand drive Mk. IV saloon is fitted with the desirable 3500cc engine offering a brisk performance. Without doubt this Jaguar can only be described as a very handsome piece of design work, with superb lines, lots of chromework and sitting proudly on black wire wheels. Finished in black with contrasting blue leather interior, this Jaguar is an imposing looking opulent sports tourer and we think frankly a very ‘cool’ British car of the 40’s.
This very rare car is a matching numbers and an original UK right hand drive example. Purchased by our vendor as part of a significant private collection in 2015, this example has benefitted from continual maintenance and when not in use stored inside in a professional ventilated Carcoon. Restored to a very high standard 10 years ago, this is described as extremely original car. This is a great opportunity as an investment to a collector or enthusiast to enjoy and experience the pleasure of the 1940s era and we think at a very attractive estimate.
