Known History

Intended for the Belgian market, our beautiful Mk IV was delivered new by the Jaguar dealership in Brussels in May 1948. As attested by its Jaguar Heritage Trust, this is a rare left-hand drive "drophead coupe". In this configuration, it benefits from a very stylish three-position convertible body. You can choose between closed, fully open or half open in the so-called "Mylord" position. With its original 3.5 litre six-cylinder engine producing 125hp and its 4-speed manual gearbox, this car offers a very generous performance in a comfort worthy of the most prestigious brands.

The car was fully restored by the renowned specialist Cecil Cars in 2009. The bodywork, mechanics, rear axle, braking system, as well as the interior, carpets and woodwork were completely revised. In order to keep the car's soul, the "Suede Green" leather upholstery with its incredible patina has been able to be preserved. The photographic report in the file and an appraisal testify to the work carried out. Purchased by its current owner in 2016 with the same Cecil Cars, the car did recently get a general mechanical inspection and four new tyres. Production was limited to 376 left-hand drive convertibles, making this prestigious model not only a delicate and refined car, but also a very exclusive one too.
