Be brave: ’50 Jaguar Mark V 2.5
When we first spotted this one we thought only a crazy person would undertake restoring this one. That is probably true but that crazy person will have one special car after it is done. There are a bunch of assumptions with this one. It is an interesting shade of green but we don’t know if it is original to the car. There is an oral history that the Royal Family of Thailand owned the Jaguar and used it on formal occasions. We’ll go out on a limb here and suggest the green represents the jewel tones typical of almost everything in Thailand. Wouldn’t that be cool? It looks complete but the seller says there are a few things missing. It hasn’t run in years however the engine turns freely. No guarantees it will run. The title says it is a ’46 but the seller believes it is a ’50. A Heritage Certificate would go along way in helping set the value of this one. If it turns out to be a cheap repaint and originally a black car then we would cash in our chips and keep looking. Click here for the listing.
