Re: DAB radio for 1974 E type.

Good morning, my ‘72 V12 2+2 has the speakers mounted low in the B pillar just behind the front seats. I expect this is also true for the roadster but not 100% sure.

Re: Scam alert!

Hello Mario, I hope your keeping well. I have no association with Mario other than I purchased my e type V12 from him via e bay couple of years ago. The car came in from the US just as planned, no surprises and and easy smooth transaction. It is disconcerting buying an unseen car, and many would not...

I’m moving forward slowly with mine and defiantly overdue to provide the forum with an update. I will sort out my phots and create some new content. Car is now 95% striped so...

Re: New E-Type book (cont'd)

Peter good luck with your new project. Assuming it’s e type engine related can we have a few detailed chapters on the V12 which surely is greatest of all Jaguar engines.

Best wishes

Nick

PS Another guaranteed purchase from me too

Re: Getrag 265 5 Speed for V12

Gents thank you for your replies, very much appreciated, I haven’t picked up the gear box yet so will fully investigate Speedo drive options. I came across a US supplier who offers a gps box that powers via an electric motor the mechanical speedo cable. Much more confident that there will be a good ...

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 drive...

Re: Hello from new member in Worcestershire

Hi David,

Welcome, I’ve found the forum to be excellent, lots of very knowledgeable friendly chaps.

I’m in the early stages of a 2+2 V12 and based in North Worcestershire so may be handy if you need a reference point or a chat and a beer.

Good luck

Re: Colour

Hi Bob,
Whoever the colour it looks really nice on your V12.

I noticed how well it sits on its wheels, are they standard 72 spokes or something different?
Also what size and brand are the tyres? They suit the car really well.

I hope the car brings you many years of pleasure

Regards

Nick

Hi Andrew, You are right on all points. Despite this set back I am still very pleased to be slowly progressing to restore my e type. This was the first surprise during disassembly, there will probably be more. I feel very privileged to own an e type and will spend what is necessary in time and money...
