  • The 1948 Jaguar 3½ Litre Mark IV Three Position Drophead Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Forest Green over a wonderful tan leather interior. This particular example was completed by the factory in 1947 just after Christmas and was originally dispatched to Geneva, Switzerland. By the mid 1960’s the Mark IV was under the ownership of a Chicago, Illinois, based enthusiast. Not long after the Jaguar was sold to sports car enthusiast, and later collector, Walter Mead. Beginning in the early 1970’s Mr. Mead began a thorough restoration, sourcing numerous parts from England and even writing to the Jaguar factory asking for parts availability. Mr. Mead would own and maintain the Jaguar Mark IV for more than 50 years, participating in several Jaguar Club events during that time. Today this Jaguar presents wonderfully, proudly displaying the patina and charm that one would expect from a high-quality older restoration! A recent service has been performed and with full CCCA eligibility, this Jaguar Drophead Coupe is sure to bring many years of enjoyment to its next caretaker. We are proud to offer this wonderful 1948 Jaguar 3½ Litre Mark IV Three Position Drophead Coupe to the most particular investor, collector or enthusiast who appreciates the appeal of British prewar style and luxury. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    HISTORY OF THE MARK IV
    Produced from 1945 to 1949, Jaguar’s 3½ Litre (referred to today as the Mark IV) was offered as either a sports saloon or a traditional Drophead Coupe with a three position convertible top. Only 664 Drophead Coupes were produced with 407 of them being left-hand drive export models. As stunning of a design today as it was then, the Jaguar Mark IV offers pre-war British motoring appeal with post-war refined mechanicals. It is no wonder why examples are cherished by collectors and enthusiasts throughout the world.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months
