The final Jaguar to join Professor Edmonds stable was the oldest and the precursor to the others, being this Mark IV which was acquired a dozen years ago. It was sold to him following an extensive restoration for its former owner, of what had been reported to be a good, sound, complete base car. In the early 2000s, the tally of bills accrued for the rebuild had exceeded $100,000, a considerable sum at lesser labor rates than today. By the spring of '09 the drophead was safely installed in Naples and in use and over the course of the last decade the Jaguar was routinely maintained by Manfred's Automobile Specialties.

As new, according to its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, the car had been built on June 9, 1948 and sent directly to the USA, being retailed through Hoffman of New York to its original purchaser. That same production record lists the original colorway of the black body, red interior and black top that it has been refurbished in, and confirms its stature as a matching chassis, engine and body.

Dean Edmonds appreciated this brand greatly, and loved the looks of this eye-catching example, with its black paintwork accented perfectly by the plethora of chrome. It is replete with all the period details one would expect including tools in the rear trunk lid.

Having been under the meticulous care of Mr. Edmonds for over a decade the Mark IV presents and performs wonderfully today.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
