JAGUAR MK V Saloon 3.5 Litre 1951

vehicle overview

1951 Jaguar MK.V Saloon 3.5 Litre. Available with two engine sizes, 2½ litre and 3½ litre, the former was adequate for the post-war market in the UK but the latter was far more desirable. Not only because it now had a top speed of over 95mph but Jaguar now offered a lefthand drive version thus making it popular in America. The lines remained reminiscent of the classic English aristocracy complete with the huge P100 headlights and classic chrome upright grille. Inside, as expected, occupants sank into leather armchairs surrounded by walnut panels and a dozen instruments feeding the driver all necessary information at a glance. Extensive restoration works have been undertaken to return this most elegant of examples back to its former glory which includes a full body off re-build with all work documented by photographs in the history file. The chassis has been sand-blasted, cleaned and, whilst in the air, the suspension has also been renovated. The electrical system has been replaced and all chrome elements restored. The engine is strong and in good condition with the manual gearbox is operating smoothly. The original paintwork of this example has been stripped off and re-painted with the original factory colour with all upholstery and wooden parts reconditioned and new carpets fitted. The V5 showing just three previous owners, this classic motorcar from Jaguar’s heyday is in lovely order throughout and represents the very spirit of motoring. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Part exchange welcome. Free U.K mainland delivery. Shipping can be arranged. Please call for any further information.
