Factory Packaging

This is from a 1965 OTS with 4,777 miles bought from the original family owners. In the boot were clear plastic bags which held the Jack, Tool Roll, Convertible Top Cover, Passenger foot rest and Thor Hammer.
Image

Measurements are:
Top cover bag - 12” x 31”
Tool roll bag - 20” x 30”
Footrest board bag - 20" x 30"
Jack Bag - see picture as it is an irregular shape:
Image
Image

This is the second car (see earlier in the thread) where have seen with evidence of the plastic bags:
Image
Image

I have no idea when Jaguar started putting the accessories into plastic bags or whether it was just for export cars to prevent deterioration during the sea voyage. More research required.

Thor Mallet

The Thor mallet had a cellophane/oil paper envelope over the head to prevent rust. This mallet can be identified as from mid 1965 production as the foil THOR sticker was changed at this point from ‘HAMMERS & MALLETS’ at the top and ‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ in the bottom sector to ‘THOR HAMMER • COMPANY’ with ‘SHIRLEY • BIRMINGHAM • ENGLAND’ in the bottom sector:

Note: Modern Thor hammers do not have the '&' between Hammers Mallets but are otherwise indistinguishable.

Many thanks to Steven Anderson for supplying the photos.

Seat Belt Fittings

This is again from Steve's car - Even though seat belts weren't installed, the eye-bolts that secure them are in place, each one had a spiral bound wire with a lead seal from the Factory. The seal is stamped "Jaguar" on one side and "FW/M 229A" on the other. FW/M 229A is a Jaguar part number which refers to the eye bolt (although I cannot find a reference to it in the SPC). According to the fitting instructions cross head plastic screws needed to be removed from the gearbox cover and the eye bolts then screwed into place:

The seat belts had hooked plates at the end which clipped onto the eye bolts:

Hood Cover

The hood cover design was very similar to the earlier 3.8 cars including the beige liner and red strengthening material:

Tool Roll

In near mint condition and displaying where each of the tools was located in the roll at the Factory and was protected by a 20" x 30" clear plastic bag:

Footrest Board Assembly

All cars were supplied with a Footrest Board as standard - BD24925 for RHD cars and BD24926 for LHD cars. The boards were cut from plywood and covered on one side with trimmed Hardura to match the car interior.

They were standard on the 4.2 cars but not listed in the J30 SPC for the 3.8 cars.

Set Screw Securing Gearbox Cover

The gearbox tunnel cover was secured at the rear with two chrome set screws BD.17546/1 and chrome washers BD.848/2. These are frequently missing on many cars, not because they have been lost but they were not fitted at the Factory for some reason. We know this because although the thread is in the tunnel and holes in the cover there are no holes punched in the vinyl to allow them to be fitted:

Hardura

The pieces of Hardura on the car were labelled with Jaguar embossed cotton tape:

'Hardura' of Durbar Mill, Hereford Road, Blackburn, Lancs. Maker of floor coverings used extensively by the motor industry. In 1948 took over St Lawrence Mill, Mill Street, Great Harwood, employing 200 people in the 1960s.

David, are all these recent additions coming from Steve's car you mention above?
Is there a story to be told of such a low mileage car in such good condition?

Hello Geoff,

They are with the exception to the seat belts and reference photos of an earlier post. As I authenticate the car and mileage I will be submitting more photos. Once I have a comprehensive history, I'll be happy to share.

As a frequent shadow visitor on the 3.8 Factory Fit section when restoring 875787 and again with 875465 it seemed only fitting that I should give a little back.

Steve

Door Fit

This is how Jaguar fitted the doors:

Horns

The Lucas WT 618 hi/low note horns were fitted to all 3.8 and 4.2 cars up to 1E1062/1E10771/1E20362/30856. These were located in the front bonnet beneath the headlights.

Image
Image

When the cars left the Factory the horns would still have had the original Lucas 12V labels fixed to the trumpets:

The later 4.2 cars had the smaller Model 9H horns fitted to the picture frame.

Once again thanks to Steve for the photos of his very original car.
