Default 1949 Jaguar Mark V Station Wagon 'one of a kind'

I was hoping that someone could give me information on how to value a one of a kind Jaguar. I know it sounds crazy, but I do believe we just aquired a 1949 mark v station wagon. I would love to hear back from anyone that may have knowledge of this car ever being made and again how to get something like this appraised if it really is a one of a kind.Attached Thumbnails

That's an imposing monster! The window frames suggest it's the work of a quality coachbuilder.

Here's the chassis, body and engine number ranges published by Jaguar Heritage:

The six digit chassis numbers for RHD commence 51 and LHD commence 53. Yours commencing 52 looks like a reserved range.

The modification would have been done by a body maker, not by Jaguar. The car has a chassis, so is easier to fashion a body onto than the later monocoque bodyshelled cars. There is likely to be a plate somewhere with the body builders name and address on it, so have a good look round the car. As to value, I doubt it will be worth all that much.

Fraser is exactly right and as no body number is on the factory plate the car waas likely sold as he states--as a rolling chassis with some body work on it--or in a crate. I would search first under the term shooting brake.

This is a very surprising find, indeed, not the least because, as a coachbuilt special bodied example from that vintage, it's LEFT-hand drive! I'd LOVE to see this creation in person and might have to drive down to Pacifica just for the occasion.
