1949 Jaguar “Hemi-Cat”

By | News | No Comments

Klassic Rides has turned this 1949 Jaguar MK into a custom project called “The Hemi-Cat”. This is a unique blending of a classic 1949 Jaguar Mark V and a new Chrysler 300-C. This unique custom car utilizes the Jaguar Mark V body, fitted to a Chrysler 300 drivetrain, including a 400 horsepower Chrysler Hemi engine. The Chrysler 300’s wheelbase was similar, but the width of the Jaguar body was widened by about 6 inches. A lot of custom fabrication had to take place, but we tried to do it in a way that would keep the Jaguar features. This was a build in collaboration with legendary NASCAR promoter Humpy Wheeler.

The Hemi-Cat, has been featured at “The Good Guys” show in Charlotte. The moment this car rolled off of the trailer it was noticed by the judges and went on to win an award. Humpy Wheeler said, “Klassic Rides, its owners and their people, are among the best restorers and street rod builders in the nation.” For more information on our restoration and customization services, please contact Klassic Rides, LLC.
