Are there sources to learn more about the history of my car by using the VIN number?
I am just finishing my 1966 FHC. this car was in a fire in 1984 and everything under the bonnet was melted or singed. After re-wiring with harness from Welch my car started with the original points, spark plugs from 1984. I rebuilt the carbs and starter motor as well as brake and clutch master cylinders. I painted the car in its original color, Sherwood Green, the interior is Sage Green and is in next to prefect condition.
I am amassed and very satisfied to be able to keep a car so…Continue

Hello Jaguar friends,
I was born in 1971. When I was 6 or 7 years old I got a silver colour E-Type model to my birthday, I fell in love with this car for the first sight.
After 35 years I bought my first real E-Type. As you can see in my pictures she's far from nice condition now, but I can see all problems, nothing to hide.
I plan to restore to immaculate 99 or 100/100 condition with a professional, well experienced Hungarian team. If our plans come true, she will be like a…

I don't know if I am talking to Urs Schmid himself now but I'll ask you my question anyway.

In the book Jaguar XK120 by Urs Schmid on page 127 picture nr. 1 and the ordernumber is BD.2012.
I've been looking everywhere on the internet and phoning people all over the world. Nobody knows where I can purchase this foamrubber.
Could anyone help me?

I share with you pictures of my dad's Jaguar. He bought it in the mid 70's and restored it. However, it was unfortunatelly not very well taken care of and was left quite exposed to the elements. It ended up needing a second restoration which is now in progress.
It is a XK120 Modified Coupé, with serial number S680098 and engine W6120-9S.…

And thanks for the links. I have a hard copy manual but the electronic version will be handy. I will take your advice and ask a few people to be friends as although my XK has been restored in the 90's it still needs work done to the suspension involving replacing bushes, etc amongst other things. I have a plan of attack from the book but if I strike any complications it will be good to ask someone with experience.

I have been advised that joining this network is the best way to seek help and advice in maintaining and finishing my new XK140. The car had a body off full restoration in the mid 90's and has since done about 29,500 miles. whilst it has been well maintained and had continual work on it it will still need quite a few small things done to it over the coming months, new dust boots to the steering ball joints, new choke cable, the timber work around the windows re veneered and fitted, etc.…Continue
