1946 Jaguar 3½ litre Mk IV at No Reserve in Historics Auction

Published 10 May 2019

A 1946 Jaguar 3½ litre Mk IV is coming up at No Reserve in Historics Classic and Collectors Auction at Mercedes Benz World, Brooklands on 18th May.

‘No Reserve’ at Historics generally means ‘expected to make less than £10,000’ so, on the face of it (pending a close look at the car), this might start a bidding battle.

Supplied originally in Ireland on 20th November 1946, this right-hand drive Mk. IV Saloon was a 1937 model put back into production after WW2, re-named ‘Jaguars’, with a 3,485cc overhead valve 6-cylinder engine giving it a top speed of 95mph. Finished in two-tone red over black and with red leather interior, this Jaguar is supplied with the Irish registration document and a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate.

Triumph TR4a IRS 1965 Historics

Also at No Reserve, this RHD 1965 Triumph TR4a IRS comes with desirable wire wheels and overdrive, underwent a transformation from white to Carmine Red in 2017, acquired a  recent new Double Duck hood and sports a Mota Lita wood rim steering wheel. Hard to imagine it selling for under £10,000.

Rolls Royce 20 25 Hooper 1935 Historics

No Reserve lots continue with a RHD 1925 Rolls Royce 20/25 Hooper limousine has been reimported from Holland, has additional side facing seats and a division from the chauffeur. Dutch registration papers are included.

Chevrolet Corvette C4 1998 Historics (1)

More exciting to many, a 1988 Chevrolet C4 Corvette 6-speed manual. LHD this time. It comes with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate. A lot of car for No Reserve.

Porsche Boxster 986 Manual 2001 Historics

Last, but not least (25 cars and motorbikes offered at No Reserve), a RHD 2001 Porsche 986 Boxster manual with 85,422 warranted miles (supported by invoices), new rear brake discs and pads last year, stainless steel exhaust and Pirelli P-Zero tyres.

Altogether, 180 vehicles in the auction including an Aston Martin DB4, a DB5 and a DB6 Volante, two Mercedes McClarens, a Maybach 62 and plenty more to get excited about.

Viewing at Mercedes Benz World Thursday 16th and Friday 17th May. The sale itself starts early at  9.30am on 18th May.

The Jaguar Mk IV's garish non-original colour scheme and non matching interior will hold the price back, but unless there are serious mechanical issues I would still expect it to exceed £10,000.

As the owner of a Rover 3.5 Litre Coupe I am encouraged by the estimate on Lot 259, but if money was no object my choice would be Lot 216, the Lagonda LG6.
