[concours] Identification Issues

Good Evening:
I am new to this list and have joined in an effort at this point to identify my
76XJ12L and to authenticate the build as it was originally manufactured. The
following is what I know at this point.
Manufacture Date: 05/76
GVWR: 5238 lbs.
Engine: 7P30356LA
Gear Box: 14684
Body: 5R9906
Serial Number: UG2R56271BW
I understand that the BW at the end of the serial number indicates an automatic
transmission, but I have no indication elseways of how the car was built in
comparison to what it is today. I am interested in determining the options, paint
and other items as would be appropriate to a restoration.
Thank you in advance for any help on this.

The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust can provide you with a full set of
options and as-built equipment for your specific car (based on the VIN)
through referencing factory construction records. You may reach them
through the following URL: I believe they charge $40 per car, and they
document the findings on a nice certificate; you’re really buying the
research, not the paper, though.

Glad to help!

Will look for your car at the Delaware Valley Jaguar Club Concours
d’Elegance on June 2nd, in Coatesville, PA.
