Jaguar Mk5 Limousine
Our 1949 Jaguar Mk5 limo is a popular member of our wedding car fleet. With room for seven passengers, it is most often used for carrying the wedding party in conjunction with a Jaguar Mk5 convertible or sedan being used as the bridal car. The limousine has been built with attention paid to period fitments such as walnut burl timbers and comfortable ivory leather upholstery.

Jaguar Mk5 Limo
Building the jaguar Mk5 limousine was a work in progress for many years. Despite choosing to use some of Perth’s ‘most highly regarded’ tradesmen we were encountered more than our share of challenges. With good humour we can look back and say that the construction has involved various tradesmen in an engagement, marriage, birth of a child, a divorce and an old man taking off to Thailand regularly looking for new beginnings.
The vision was for a small limousine to accompany our fleet of Jaguar Mk5 wedding cars. Then why not make it something exceptional.
Once the initial construction was completed including a new custom made chassis and all new sill panels and underbody the limo was dissembled and soda blasted to remove all of the old paint and underbody grime. Reconstruction and painting saw another year pass by.
Window fitment, wiring and building of the internal fittings and upholstery were said by the tradesmen involved to require 6 – 12 months but in fact took three years and saw the engagement, marriage, birth of our mechanic’s first child.
The Jaguar Mk5 limousine has been designed with more modern mechanical fittings including a super smooth suspension and braking from a Jaguar XJ6 and a modern V6 engine coupled to an automatic transmission. All mechanical components were new or reconditioned to make a super reliable wedding limousine. The limo has also been fitted with dual air-conditioning to be comfortable throughout the Perth summer wedding season.
