Seller's description:

1950 Jaguar Mark V

Price:Contact Seller

Location:St. Louis, Missouri

Year:1950

Make:Jaguar

Model:Mark V

Odometer:24946

VIN:640107

Documentation includes a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate ?Included with a very complete and original tools in factory tool box With its flowing, elegant lines, it is difficult to believe this is not a car from the 1930s instead one from 1950. This Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupe is one of 395 right-hand drive examples made in 1950. A previous owner imported it to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1975. It was built on November 29, 1950 and was dispatched on December 22, 1950. The next owner acquired the car in 1978, with just 3,000 miles added during his 28 years of ownership. The next owner bought it in 2006, during which time it underwent cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment as detailed below. Work included a 2007 re-paint in the original Birch Grey, a new red leather interior, black convertible top and refurbished wood trim. New sidelight jewels were also fitted during this period. The paint and trim are in overall very good order while the bodywork, with coach doors, is straight and solid. The engine bay is very tidy while the cargo area is in satisfactory shape. A pair of foglights nestle below the headlights. Two-tier, chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body and look great.

Hi, the colour looks too light (bright) and blueish to be "Birch Grey", my #647194 was also originally Birch Grey. The hood (top) should not show through any of the bows in a DHC and the small cut for the exhaust pipe is not standard, nor is the exhaust tail. but a very nice car regardless. :)

A pair of foglights nestle below the headlights. Two-tier, chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body and look great. The red leather offers a striking contrast to the grey exterior. The reupholstered seats (rear with fold-down center armrest) and matching carpets were installed in 2007, as was the re-veneered woodwork. A four-spoke steering wheel is in fine form with a beautiful hub while the burled wood dashboard and inner doors panels are in very good order. A new rear interior light was installed while the gauges in the woodgrain dashboard are all from Smiths but the left turn signal and semaphores are inoperable.

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?
