#1 JDHT Certificate

Post by Marquis Rex » Fri Jul 12, 2019 1:23 pm

I bought my series 2 OTS last year and am loving it. It's exceeded my expectations.
Nice riding, quite soft, nice feedback to the steering.
Although numbers matching- I bought the car knowing its not totally original: The bonnet is from around a 67 (series 1.5) with the smaller grill opening and indicators over the front bumper (even though the rears are still under bumper).
Secondly- the colour is a 1980s Jaguar Cranberry (a burgundy metallic colour).

I was thinking I want to make it more original in some ways, but I prefer the look of the earlier bonnet. I sent off for the JDHT cert.

I found out the colour was originally willow green. I don't think I'll be taking it back to the original colour.
I could pick a period original colour- but it's a lot of money and effort. I am liking the dark red hue of cranberry metallic now.

I guess I'll continue tailoring the car to my specific needs....triple SUs, may be changing to interior toggle switches , covered 'series 1' style headlights …..

Hi Peter,
The hard copy of the certificate is yet to come but I got a pdf copy from this email address

jdhtarch@jaguarlandrover.com
and this was a the bottom of the email:
'Collections Centre, British Motor Museum, Banbury Road, Gaydon CV35 0BJ
Tel: +44 (0) 1926646385
e-mail: archive@jaguarheritge.com
Jaguar Heritage Trust is the operating name of the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust.
Registered in England No. 1709907 and registered charity No. 286863

Registered office: Abbey Road, Whitley, Coventry CV3 4LF. '

When I worked for Jaguar my email address had '@jaguarlandrover.com in it (and @ford for a long time too) - it also has the Whitley address of where I once worked too.

This was the www address I believe

Thanks. You’re a US resident though, right? Did you try the Mahwah HQ facility? Not sure if they still do certificates and believe UK ones were due to be far dearer?

I never tried Mahwah HQ facility and didn't know it was an option.

The JDHT certificate wasn't cheap but Ive come to expect that from Jaguar
