1950 Jaguar MK V

If you have more questions or want more details please email : rochellechockley@netzero.net . The Jaguar MkV (produced from 1948-1951) was debuted at the same time as the XK120, yet it outsold the latter more than 2 to 1. The new MkV chassis, more powerful engine, torsion bar suspension (equipped with double wishbones and a single torsion bar in front) and 18" wheels produced an altogether smooth ride characteristic with traditional balance of comfort. In addition, the MkV featured hydraulic brakes and Coker radial tires, unlike its predecessor, resulting in safe and enjoyable touring. The styling of the car followed prewar SS-Jaguar lines with upright chrome grille and the leaping Jaguar radiator cap mascot became available as an option. This numbers matching example has been the subject of an extensive restoration and is in excellent condition both mechanically and cosmetically. It is owned by an estate of an elderly gentleman collector. The three-position top, sumptuous Burgundy leather interior, deep black and yellow paint, exquisite wood dash and trim, and re-plated chrome accents are all in near perfect condition. The car comes with a set of hand tools in the boot and quite a few spare parts. This beautiful Jag is completely ready for the next owner to enjoy. This is one of a very rare handful of examples where the owner special ordered the car with factory wire wheels. Fender metal is perfect with no lead or bondo build up.
