Jaguar MkIV, MkV
In March 1945 SS Cars Ltd became Jaguar Cars Ltd, and they also bought out the tooling of the Standard six cylinder engines for their own production, although the 4-cylinder engines continued to be made by Standard. Production of the 1.5-litre, 2.5-litre and 3.5-litre cars restarted with few changes although most cars were now saloons, and no 1.5-litre dropheads were now made. The 1946 benefitted from a new Hypoid bevel rear axle which allowed a lower car and a sleeker appearance. At the 1948 London Motor Show Jaguar announced the Jaguar MkV, which was significantly different to the prewar model (now referred to as 'MkIV'). The Mk V was launched with an all new rigid chassis with independent front suspension, hydraulic brakes, and only fitted with the six cylinder engines.
