One could say that the Mark V Drophead Coupe was the XK120 for the sportsman who had a family. From its distinctive ‘pram irons’ to its coach doors and driving lights, MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 1951 Jaguar Mark V Drophead Coupe. It is simply an elegant touring car with a unique presence and three position folding top. This luxurious cat hails from Atherton California.

Finished in a distinguished black-and-grey ensemble that highlights the car’s curves as well as its chrome trim, including the leaping Jaguar radiator cap mascot. The paint and trim are in very good order but with some minor blemishes upon close inspection.

The car’s windows are clear and crack-free while its lights, including the fog lights, are haze-free and intact. The bodywork is straight and solid and all looks good. The engine bay is tidy and the car’s twin bumpers fit well to the body. There are many original tools in the trunk. This old cat rolls on wide whitewall bias-ply tires, size 6.80-16 at all four corners.

Under the hood is a 3.5-liter OHV inline six-cylinder engine with dual SU side-draft carburetors and buttoned to a four-speed, single-helical gearbox from Jaguar and the Moss Gear Company of Birmingham, England. The car features Girling four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

Inside, the car’s red luscious leather interior meshes well with the wood veneer of the instrument panel. The Vaumol Leather seats is in near-excellent order, while the Wilton wool carpet is in very good condition. The four-spoke black steering wheel is in excellent order. The inner door panels and burled walnut instrument panel are in very good order as is the gear selector.

Blue Ridge Sports Cars Inc., of North Carolina recently evaluated and serviced this example. While it might look cozy, there is more passenger space available for family and friends to ride to the next cruise night or car show. There, this car would turn a lot of heads.

The Mark V retained the 1946-48 driveline, including the overhead-valve pushrod 3.5-liter straight-six engines, now since 1946 produced by Jaguar, which the company had previously purchased from the Standard Motor Company before the war. The chassis was new with independent front suspension by double wishbones and torsion bar an arrangement that would be used by Jaguar for many future vehicles. It also had hydraulic brakes, which Jaguar had been slow to adopt compared to other manufacturers and an all-pressed steel body.

The wheels were 16-inch steel-disc type, significantly smaller than the 18-inch wheels on the MK IV. From the side, a distinctive styling touch on the saloon was a “tuck in” curve at the base of the rear quarter window following the curved profile of the side glass, a feature retained on many subsequent models. Rear-wheel spats (fender skirts) were standard.

A 3.5-liter car tested by The Motor magazine in 1949 had a top speed of 90.7 mph and could accelerate from 0–60 mph in 20.4 seconds. Jaguar’s inimitable test engineer Norman Dewis used a Mark V regularly. When asked about the top speed he saw in his car, he commented that he verified 90 mph once, but the thrill of the moment did not encourage repeating the feat.

Competition to this Jaguar in 1950 included Buick’s Series 50 Super Convertible, Delahaye’s 135M Convertible, Hudson’s Custom Commodore Eight Convertible Brougham and Mercury’s Eight Club Convertible.
