I’m no longer able to continuously check for any comments nor answer possible questions. Nevertheless, I decided to keep the site, as it may help others finding their answer for problems encountered during the restoration of their beloved Jaguar XK.
During the restoration of my 1955 Jaguar XK 140 FHC SE and my 1954 XK 120 OTS SE, there were countless moments that I had more questions than answers. Although there are many excellent books on the subject of restoring a Jaguar XK (and I consumed them all), most of the time the actual information that I needed wasn’t there.
A lot of information, however, can be found by carefully analyzing the content of other, similar websites, or carefully analyzing the old parts that came with the car, and of course by looking at Jaguars that survived the decades in a more or less original state.
I tried to carefully note down all relevant information I obtained, thereby making thousands of pictures, writing documents and creating spread sheets when required. I also made sketches and drawings with the dimensions of missing parts as accurate as possible.
I can imagine that other XK enthusiasts have encountered (or will encounter) the same problems, in desperate need for additional information and answers to their questions. For that reason I started this website, showing as much information as I can, that will hopefully help others.
To make this information accessible I followed the structure of the Jaguar XK 140 Spare Parts Catalogue and refer as much as possible to Jaguar part numbers. When possible I also make a link to the supplier part numbers (such as Lucas, Wilmot Breeden and Lockheed just to name a few) because in most cases this will make the search for those missing parts or additional information much easier.
