This right-hand drive example of Jaguar's rare and desirable 3½-Litre sports saloon was despatched to Brylaw Motors in Sydney, Australia on 30th January 1948. The accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate confirms matching chassis and engine numbers, and records the date of manufacture as 17th October 1947. The history file also contains some receipts and invoices for work carried out in Australia, together with correspondence regarding registration and bills relating to subsequent restoration work following its return to the UK in 1989.
In the present ownership since 2006, 'MVT 645' benefited from a thorough service by Beacon Garage at time of acquisition, which included overhauling the distributor and wiper motor, and fitting new core plugs, fuel pipes, etc. Since then the Jaguar has been used sparingly and maintained by the owner, an engineer with an extensive collection of motorcycles, who advises us that it is well sorted and powerful enough to embarrass far more modern cars.
Finished in black over green, this Mark IV appears in mellowed condition, the interior boasting smart grey leather upholstery and an apparently original and un-restored dashboard and instruments. A real head turner, this car is presented in running order and ready for use, unlike many so-called 'trailer queens'. The battery was renewed in 2015.
A luxurious car for the discerning buyer, this stylish Jaguar 3½-Litre comes complete with tool kit, original Jaguar service manual, V5C registration document and an extensive history file containing documentation from the mid-1980s onwards. A quantity of spares to include a distributor, side lamps, etc is included in the sale.
