Introduced in 1950 the Mark VII Jaguar used the Mark V chassis, but with a more streamlined body. The mudguards and lights were incorporated into the bodywork, along with a 2-piece windscreen. The newly developed 3.4 litre XK engine, a straight 6 from the XK120, was also fitted. A first for the big cats. By 1954 the model had developed into the Mark VII M variant. Circular grilles were installed over the horns, below the headlights. Whilst the auxiliary lights were moved to the bumper. The engine capacity at 3442cc, and compression 8:1, were the same but output was uprated to 190bhp. 1954 was also the first year Borg Warner automatic transmission was available and fitted to this car.
Owned by its current owner for 40 years the current SI registration is non-transferable. Some minor work will be required for registration, but structurally it is sound. As such it is an ideal base for gradual improvement, rolling restoration or full bare metal restoration depending upon what is required. So many of these cars have been dismantled, or wrecked for parts its rare to find one with its original engine and hardware intact.
