Car to be at auction 6/11
1948 Jaguar Mk IV Saloon
Chassis No. 611638
To be auctioned on
Thursday, June 23, 2011
- The first post-war Jaguar model
- Older restoration, well equipped with desirable sunroof
The current owner purchased this Mark IV in 1985 from the previous long-term owner. Although the car was complete, it required full restoration. The total two-year refurbishment was carried out by Garage Renou Auto of Neuchatel, Switzerland at a considerable expense of 120,000 CHF. As confirmed by recent inspection, the results remain excellent. Elegantly finished in Midnight Blue with red leather upholstery, the car presents very well, and its restoration has held up nicely. Following restoration, it was first registered in 1996 and has passed every technical inspection since.
The vendor reports that the car has been reliable in his ownership and that it offers decidedly sporty driving dynamics in spite of its proportions. Complete with registration documents from 1956 and photos of the car with the prior owner, it certainly holds up to Sir William Lyons' maxim of "Grace, Pace and Space."
