Re: 1968 Series II - valuation?

#1, Series 2 cars aren't as desired as the Series 1 cars and bring less money. Yours being an 1968, may be an early enough production run that it still has the series one features (body style, lights, etc.) Series 2 was mostly an 1969 model. Series 2 was a complete design change produced from Octob...

Re: Getrag 265 5 Speed for V12

Hello, I want to switch from auto to manual and have an option on a Getrag 265 5 speed manual from an XJS for a fair price. Planning to use the ‘super performance’ adaptor kit to make it fit. The only down side I can see is that it’s a 1990 box and therefore does not have the mechanical speedo driv...

Be aware the 265 is very difficult to work on and virtually obsolete for parts. Make sure it's the overdrive box (265/6)and not the 265/5 direct drive top

Re: Repro Tool Kit Question

I had a look at one yesterday at the NEC classic show.
It is a repro tool roll with modern tools in it, althought the spanners do say Jaguar on them !

Re: Jaguar dealership in Andover.

The only Dealer ending ...gs in the 1968 directory is Kennings. They were in London, Shropshire, Staffs and Essex. Maybe at some time they owned the Andover Garage ?

Re: No Registration Documents

It says.. THIS IS A BUILD FROM SCATCH AND THIS CAR HAS NO LOG BOOK AND THE CHASSIS TAG ROTTED

It doesnt say this is a rebuild, so could be just a collection of parts bolted together ? I wouldnt touch it.

50 years old - Day out to Jaguar Heritage

I visited Jaguar Heritage and the British Motor Museum at Gaydon yesterday as it was my Cars 50 birthday.
A good day out and lots to see, particularly if you like prototypes and odballs.

I parked outside along with another E Type.
