c.1950 Jaguar Mark V Drop Head Coupe
Chassis no. 647116

A considerable improvement on what had gone before, the Mark V saloon's cruciform-braced chassis featured torsion bar independent front suspension, designed pre-war by the company's Chief Engineer William Heynes, and all-round hydraulic brakes. Jaguar's existing Standard-based, six-cylinder, overhead-valve engine was continued in both 2½- and 3½-liter forms in the Mark V, whose bodywork likewise maintained the pre-war tradition, though with minor up-dating in the form of faired-in headlamps, deeper bumpers, and rear wheel spats. This Drop Head Coupe example shown here is sure to be a rewarding project for its next owner. Although much work is needed as much of the car is found loosely pieced together. Furthermore, the original Jaguar 6-cylinder has been swapped for a Chevrolet Blue Flame motor.
