Chassis #547012 was hand built on 8th November 1950 and is the last of only 12 LHD cars equipped with the 2664cc engine. On account of its rarity, ‘Noble House Classics’ (Netherlands) acknowledged it’s value and took the MK V in as a project.

10 Years later however, a customer bought over the project and authorized a concours-condition restoration. The final result didn’t see the daylight until the end of 2001 after which the car won a prize at it’s first concours d'elegance. Not surprising if you know that it is accompanied by +200,000 euros of invoices.

According to the vehicle information sheet, it was originally finished in Gunmetal over a red interior. Although no choice was made to respect the original exterior color at the time, we can only note that the 'Navy Blue' color suits the red upholstery extremely well as the photos clearly show here!

The clever three-position soft top allows the car to be driven in an open, milord configuration for concours d'elegance or closed for interior driving. The Mark V transports its passengers in remarkable comfort, with top-notch handling for its time and British refinement.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
