This was my dad's DHC and he sold it in 1983 to the owner of a restaurant in the Washington, DC area called 1776. That's the last I know of the car. Would love to find it's whereabouts, and would be willing to provide info regarding the car's history when it was in my family's possession. In addition, many years ago I completed a photo-realistic acrylic painting of the car and would be happy to provide a print of the painting to the car's current owner. Where is this Jag?!

Car now offered at:

www.hemmings.com/auction/1950-jaguar-mk-v-aventura-fl-952092

Seller's description:

Vehicle Location Golden Beach, Florida

VIN 647117

Odometer 64,980

Engine 3.5-liter OHV inline-six

Transmission Manual

Exterior Color Two-tone gray

Interior Color Tan leather

This 1950 Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupe was acquired by its current owner in 2007, and he has enjoyed driving it on local trips to parks in good weather at his homes in New Jersey and Florida. The two-door Drophead Coupe featured a folding canvas roof with true landau bars and could be set in three different positions: closed, open in front only, and fully open. 

Per the car’s Jaguar Heritage Certificate, this Mark V was sold by Import Motors of Denver, Colorado, in November 1950. The original owner is said to have been the widow of Spencer Penrose, an entrepreneur and developer of the Broadmoor Hotel and Resort in Colorado Springs. “The car has received impeccable care over its lifetime,” the seller says. The mileage shown is believed to be accurate. In 2009, the car was treated to a comprehensive exterior body refreshment including a full paint job. 

“Since then, the car has required little more than periodic scheduled maintenance. It is always stored indoors, driven by someone who understands its needs and limitations,” the seller explains. “It is a fine looking and running car, though perhaps not national concours-ready. It has been lovingly prepared to be driven and enjoyed, not trailered and babied. It starts easily, idles smoothy, and is surprisingly nimble on the road. Two-piece front seatbelts have been added.” The seller says the owner, now in his 80s, is unable to enjoy the car as he once did. 

POWERTRAIN

The 3.5-liter OHV inline-six was rated at 125 horsepower by the manufacturer when new. The owner believes that the Jaguar’s engine is original and has never had a rebuild to the best of his knowledge. “To start, pull out the choke, turn on the ignition, and push the starter button.” He indicates a little weeping from the transmission, leaving a small spot on the garage floor. “The four-speed manual transmission shifts nicely, but it must be operated gently, not quickly.” 

EXTERIOR

The seller states that the Mark V was repainted in 2009 and remains in good condition with no body blemishes, scratches, or dents. He notes that the differences in the two-tone gray are subtle and not generally noticed until seen in person. “There were some rust repairs made during the body restoration in 2009, and there is no sign any rust returning,” he says. The chrome appears to gleam in photos. The top is fully lined. “When the top is up, it is water-tight and fits beautifully. When it is down, it sits above the trunk area,” the seller explains. The top’s full lining is in good condition following the 2009 restoration, per the seller. All glass is described as clean and free of cracks. The roll-up windows are affirmed to work as designed, and the seals are described as weathertight. All lighting is affirmed to work.

INTERIOR

According to the owner, the tan carpet is in good shape, and the burled wood interior trim is intact. The seating surfaces in the front and rear, as well as the door panels, are covered in thick, tan leather. The seller says all seats are free from any tears, scratches, or broken stitches. Discoloration seen on the rear seat is from the owner’s long-haired dogs going along for rides, the seller reports. The heat works and all gauges are said to function properly.

CHASSIS

The seller says the suspension functions properly but that cosmetically, the torsion bar brackets have lost their paint due to a cleaning process and have acquired some mild surface rust. “While it is not a structural issue, I would have them painted (while on the car) with a rust-preventing paint for purely cosmetic reasons. Everything else looks fine on the underside.” The 16-inch steel wheels are fitted with Diamond Back radial tires made into whitewalls. The tire age was unknown, and the DOT manufacturing date codes could not be seen in provided photos. The seller agrees that, due to their age, the tires could use replacement for driving peace of mind. “The steering responds quickly to where it is pointed, but it does have a bit of vagueness in the center,” the seller states. No issues are reported for the four-wheel drum brakes.

DOCUMENTATION

The seller states that this vehicle will be sold on a clean New Jersey title in the owner’s name. The seller is assisting the owner of the vehicle, with his approval, to get the vehicle listed online. Certain to be a rarity and attention-getter at local shows or just out for a coffee run, this 1950 Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupe had an exterior restoration on an original, well-maintained car in 2009. The owner has treated it like a beloved pet but now must let it go to a new home. “Wherever you drive this car, you had better leave some extra time for conversation, because this car just generates it,” he says.
