More About this Item


Description: 1948 Jaguar MK IV cabriolet No reserve Titre de circulation belge Châssis n° 637 332 - Dans la même famille depuis 1965 - Véritable " Barn-find ", bel intérieur d'origine - Rare version conduite à gauche - Sans réserve Immatriculée en Belgique en juillet 1948, cette Jaguar MkIV présente un numéro de châssis qui correspond à un cabriolet, plus précisément dénommé "drophead coupe", conduite à gauche, modèle particulièrement rare et désirable. Le père du défunt propriétaire était pharmacien à Bruxelles et la voiture lui avait été offerte en 1965 par un ami, le présent certificat d'immatriculation date de cette même année. Ravi de ce cadeau inespéré, le pharmacien a utilisé la voiture pendant les mois d'été, avant de la remiser pour se lancer dans une restauration. Un démontage a commencé, mais il s'est arrêté assez rapidement après s'être limité principalement à l'habitacle. Depuis, la voiture est restée ainsi, correctement entreposée. Elle se présente donc dans un enviable état "sorti de grange", avec un intérieur en cuir rouge bien préservé et des sièges qui ne devraient pas réclamer plus qu'un nettoyage. Les boiseries sont conservées elles aussi et le tableau de bord est complet. La carrosserie est visiblement saine et la voiture est dotée de ses accessoires et de sa capote. Cet exemplaire présente l'avantage d'un état d'origine non restauré: il est donc fidèle à ce qu'était la voiture à sa sortie des usines Jaguar. MERCI DE NOTER QUE LA VOITURE EST A REDEMARRER ET SONT DONC VENDUES SANS CONTROLE TECHNIQUE. Belgian registration Chassis # 637 332 - In the same family since 1965 - A true "barn-find" with beautiful original interior - Rare LHD version - No reserve Registered in Belgium in July 1948, this Jaguar Mark IV has a frame number that corresponds to a convertible, specifically referred to as "drophead coupe", a particularly rare and desirable LHD version. The father of the deceased owner was a pharmacist in Brussels and the car had been offered in 1965 by a friend, the certificate of registration dates from that year. Delighted with this unexpected gift, the pharmacist used the car during the summer months, before storing it for a while and then embarking on a restoration. Though the dismantling began, he stopped soon after, with mainly the interior addressed. Since then, the car has been properly stored. It is in an enviable barn find condition, with a well preserved red leather interior and seats that should not require much more than a thorough cleaning. The woodwork is also well preserved and the dashboard is complete. The body is visibly sound and the car is fitted with its accessories and its soft top. This example has the advantage of being in an unrestored original condition, faithful to the original specifications. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CAR NEEDS TO BE RESTARTED AND THEREFORE ARE SOLD WITHOUT A TECHNICAL INSPECTION.
