A rare Jaguar mark V in left hand drive with desirable three position drop head coachwork. This car was fully restored 10 years or so ago. We have extensive pictures of the work being done. Since then it has been in a private collection in Portugal & has done very few miles each year in sunny climes.
The car is in excellent condition with no rot or corrosion whatsoever. The exterior paint is two tone in a light & medium blueish grey. To the interior is grey leather piped in blue. The highly figured burr walnut is mirror polished & in lovely condition. The roof is of blue mohair.
We collected the car in Lisbon & drove back in it to the UK via Santander. We can thus attest that the car is well suited to continental touring. The car benefits from a full tool kit in the boot. On the road it drives beautifully with the large engine pulling effortlessly. It will cruise at 80MPH in a smooth unruffled manner & is thus well suited to modern traffic conditions.
