1951 Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupe - $SOLD - Located at the St. Louis Car Museum

Detailed photos & specs HERE


1951 Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupe with Coffee and Cream two-tone finish and Biscuit leather interior. Powered by 3442cc Inline 6. Having only 2 owners in the past 68 years, this vehicle was purchased in 1953 from Boch Motors of Norwood, MA by a graduate of the U.S. Naval Officer Candidate School in Newport, RI who used it as his personal transportation. Since its 30-year-old restoration, this final year, mildly customized Mark V has been sparingly used and would mainly be kept as a garage display, having been driven just over 300 miles according to the odometer. With its recent attention to be roadworthy again, we are proud to report it starts, runs, and drives with great. Contact Jon Faust at (314)993-1330.

I'm pretty sure that both the MK IV and the MK V had pushrod engines. The DOHC engine was first introduced on the MK VII sedan and XK120. I believe the engine in the car shown above is a replacement. Beautiful car, nonetheless.
