Re: Sun visor slipping down

And the pictures shown in the thread entitled “Sun Visor Restoration” started by Keithmac. If I only knew how to combine the 3 threads, I could have made it easier for all.

Re: Sun visor slipping down

When I looked at my post, I realized that it was attached to a thread without pictures. Should have been attached to the thread entitled “Sun Visor Photo” started by Malc. Apologies for the confusion.

Re: Sun visor slipping d

My’66 coup’s sun visor (September 1965 manufacture date) does not want to stay up. It does not fall all the way down but generally hangs about an inch down from the headliner. I do not have an issue with the passenger side as I suspect it was not used as much. Unlike the visor pictured in this threa...

Re: Newspaper report E type in crash

Given the number of people purportedly in the E-Type and the fact that they appear to have had less serious injuries, is it possible that the newspaper got it wrong and that they were actually in a Jaguar XE? Hope they all have a full and speedy recovery.

Re: Museum of Modern Art Series 1 Jaguar

In post 48 of the “Adverts” section of Collectors Corner you can find an image of the original MOMA poster from the opening of the first show which included the blue E Type. I also have in my collection an original brochure from the show which I did attend many years before acquiring my FHC. MOMA la...

Re: Forum Downtime

I noticed that I hit "submit" too quickly and had mistakenly typed in "65 FHC" instead of "66" (and did not need to type in any description as it is already included in my signature). That being said for those of you who care, if any, the car has a birthday of September 17th, 1965 but I refer to it ...

Re: Heated Windshield

Thank you for all of the replies. Jaguar does make a windshield which does not include the heated elements. I am told that it is routinely included on cars sold in the warmer states such as Florida and Arizona. I called a few dealers located in warmer states on the theory that they may have performe...

Heated Windshield

Apologies that this post is not E-Type related but it is at least Jaguar related. I have a 2015 XF and need to replace the windshield due to a crack. The car originally came with a heated windshield which has small wires embedded in it. As I do not use the function and would much prefer a windshield...

Re: Carrying a fire extinguisher

I also carry an extinguisher in my car but I have often wondered whether it would be of any use for a fire in the engine compartment. How would one raise the bonnet if there was a fire under it? During the summer, the release catch is normally very hot after a drive. I cannot imagine trying to open ...

Toe board

Apologies. My name is David. I live in New York City and have a black 1966 (born September, 1965) coupe with a red interior. I will try to figure out how to change my signature so that I will no longer forget to sign my name.

Toe board

Great information. As everyone in my family is quite tall, I have little need for a toe board but, if I ever find one in the correct color (red), I may not be able to pass it up as it is a pretty neat accessory.

The car does not appear in the pictures to have outside bonnet locks. Given its early production date, I was surprised.

I also have the "single rubber jobbie" with no ferrule around the stick shift and have the Koolmat but no foam insulation.

Soundproofing

I last drove my lhd series 1 coupe a few days prior to Christmas (prior to the roads being salted) and was quite comfortable. The car does have koolmat lining the cockpit as well as jute undercarpets, carpets and rubber floor mats. The chrome shift lever and hand brake warmed up slightly but were no...

Mark, although, as the owner of a Series 1 black coupe with red interior (original colors), I might be a bit bias, your car looks terrific. It apppears that black was much more popular in the States. Yesterday, out of the 15-20 E-Types gathered at the Fairfield Cocourse, 2 were black. Mine did not a...

Colors

I just returned home from the Fairfield County Concours d'Elegance in Connecticut, USA. There were approximately 20 E-Types including the oldest E-Type in the USA. While there, I learned that less than one percent of all E-Types were originally painted black. This number seems very low to me. Can an...
