Auction description:

Lot Number 199

1948 Jaguar Mark IV 3½-Litre Drophead Coupe

Sold For $170,800

RM | Sotheby's - AMELIA ISLAND 2018

Chassis No. 637098

Last of the truly classic Jaguars

Beautiful award-winning restoration

Includes Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate

One of the best Mark IVs available

According to its Jaguar Heritage Trust production record certificate, this left-hand-drive 3½-Litre Drophead Coupe was completed on 3 May 1948 and shipped on 28 May to S.H. Lynch & Co., the distributor in Texas. Its first owner and early history in the U.S. have not been recorded. Restored to concours condition, this 3½-Litre Drophead Coupe is nicely presented in Garnet Red with matching leather interior. The three-position top is done in beige canvas. Although now two decades old, the three-year nut-and-bolt restoration has been well maintained and has produced a long legacy of awards. These include 1st place honors at such concours as Palo Alto, Santa Rosa, Hillsborough, and Silverado. It has scored Jaguar Club of North America honors from 1992 and as recently as 2017. Other recent recognition includes People's Choice at the 2017 International Jaguar Festival and a Presidential Award at Hilton Head in 2016.

Complete with the factory tool kit in the drop-down boot lid, the owner's manual, and Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, it represents the last vestige of truly classic Jaguar styling. It is undoubtedly one of the best Mark IVs available today - a rare model in rare condition.

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?
