Lot 59: Jaguar MKV 3.5

Classics Cars, Charterhouse (15 July 2012)

Jaguars new MKV saloon was launched at the 1948 London Motor Show, alongside its sporting stable mate the XK120. It retained the old overhead valve push rod engine in either 2.5 litre or 3.5 litre formats as used in Jaguars pre WWII models. A new chassis was employed with independent front suspension incorporating double wishbones and torsion bar. The styling was traditional with an upright chrome radiator, sweeping wings with running boards and rear wheel spats. This desirable 3.5 litre MKV left the Jaguar factory originally as a saloon. The conversion into the

present drop head coup´┐Ż was carried out by Mr Anthony Tolock, a talented engineer who had previously been involved with Jaguar cars and Reg Parnell racing. It took Mr Tolock approximately four years to complete the restoration and conversion. The Jaguar is finished in old English white, with a full red leather interior, red soft top, side screens, tonneau cover, and spare wheel cover. The car is supplied with a photographic record of the restoration, old MOT certificates and tax discs. The large Jaguar saloons of the early post WWII period are becoming increasingly sought after with their distinct period looks and mechanical reliability of later classics. V5C, MOT to November 2012, tax exempt
