Jaguar MK IV 1,5 Litre Front three quarter view

In 1935 the SS Car Company launched its new 1.5 Litre model. The new car was powered by a side valve Standard 12 engine, which measured 1608cc and produced modest performance. Despite the cars small engine its body style and low-slung saloon chassis gave the car a sporting, distinguished look. Most 1.5 Litre cars carried the standard 4 door saloon body, although a few Drop Head Coupes were also built.

After WW2 the SS Car Company became Jaguar Cars, a name change brought about for obvious political reasons! At the same time the 1.5 Litre model received a much improved overhead valve, 1776cc engine  - engine power: 65 bhp and 0-60: 28 sec. The 1.5 Litre helped establish Jaguars reputation for building graceful saloon cars, something it still does exceptionally well today.
