Sensing that war was imminent, William Lyons phased out car production at his SS Cars Ltd factory and focused on helping out the war effort. He continued to produce sidecars and trailers for the British armed forces and carried out repair work on RAF bombers.

These military contracts helped keep his company afloat during the war, and once the hostilities ended, they were ready to get back to producing motor cars, and with a name change, Jaguar Cars Ltd. was created.

Prewar sales for the S.S. products had been low especially in the United States. However, with a nation ravaged by war, Lyons had to press for this export market. Taking advantage of the strong U.S. economy and a new interest in elegant, well-made British automobiles (especially from returning Gi's), Jaguar quickly set up a dealer network across the Atlantic.

Jaguars cars were in fact so popular that one of the first 16 sold overseas went to actor Clark Gable.

The Jaguar Mark IV, in fact pronounced mark four, was built by Jaguar from 1945 to 1949. It was a relaunch of a pre-Second World War model made by SS Cars Ltd from 1936.

The 3½ Litre model we have on offer here was manufactured in1946, being essentially the same body and chassis as the 2½ Litre but the larger 125 bhpengine giving far better performance.
The rear axle ratio was also changed to 4.25:1 as opposed to the 4.5:1 on the 2½ Litre models.
