Jaguar Mkiv 3.5 Litre - 1945-1948

The name jaguar was first used on the new sports sedan launched by ss cars of coventry at the 1935 motor show. Powered by a 2.5-litre, overhead-valve, standard-built engine, it was the basis for all jaguar sedans built up to 1948. The company name was changed in 1945 because of the unfortunate associations the nazis had given the letters ss.

About vehicle
Making their own engines beginning in 1945, jaguar took over the machinery that standard had used to build their 2.5 and 3-5-litre power units. However, their smaller 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine was still built by standard. Unusual in an era when most cars came in one color black jaguar boss william lyons gave the customer a choice of seven shades. Despite their high style, jaguars were competitively priced. value for money that value-for-money image was achieved quite simply: There was nothing adventurous about the mechanical specifications, and the rod-operated brakes were the order of the day. These prewar designs filled the gap until jaguar introduced the new mk v sedan in 1948, alongside the immortal xk120 sports car, powered by the all-new, twin-cam xk engine conceived during the war.
The flagship of prewar jaguar designs, the 3-5-litre model remained in production from late 1945 until the end of 1948.
