1951 Jaguar Mark V Saloon – Lee’s Summit, MO

Seller offering a 1951 Jaguar Mark V Saloon with 24,000 miles for $55,000.  Seller doesn’t provide many details other than it’s a rare left-hand drive model with a sunroof and original tool kit.  Pictures show this to be a great example – beautiful silver over grey leather interior, wood accents, plenty of chrome and beautiful lines.

The Mark V was produced from 1948-1951.  Following pre-war SS-Jaguar lines, the Mark V has an upright chrome grille, a distinctive “tuck in” curve at the base of the rear quarter window following the curved provide of the side glass, rear-wheel spats (fender skirts), and the leaping Jaguar radiator cap.  Two versions of the v6 engine were produced (not clear which one this is equipped with).  The 3.5L had a top speed of 90.7 mph and a 0-60 time of 20.4 seconds.  A total of 10,499 saloon and drop head coupes were produced during the 3 year production.  Of those, only 188 2.5-Litre, and 1,902 3.5-Litre left-hand saloons were made.   Original MSRP was 1,265 pounds.   Check out seller’s listing on Craigslist for full details and contact information.
