[Saloon-lovers] 1959 MK IX Boot Scripts or Badges

I am looking for information on 1959 MK IX boot scripts or badges
for my manual (without overdrive) model as mine does not have
anything above the number plate plinth. There seems to be no
evidence of filled holes in this area either but I have seen that
the Jaguar badge appears here in all the photos of MK IXs that I
have seen. My car does have the MK IX badge on the bottom right
corner. Was there any difference in badging between manual and
automatic cars or was it introduced above the number plate plinth
later in the production run? I look forward to your responses.
Thank you.–

Zim,

My Automatic MK-IX has two chrome script “badges” above the number plinth.
The upper script reads “Jaguar” and right below it the script reads
“automatic.” That last script should not be on your vehicle but the Jaguar
script should be. You might want to look carefully to see if your boot lid
has been replaced in the distant past. I believe that Jaguar produced
replacement panels that did not have pre-drilled holes for some of the
chrome pieces. This is just an opinion on my part. Others may disagree on
this.

My MK9 (which I drove to work today) has block letters “JAGUAR” above the
housing, and script “Automatic” above that, with “MKIX” in the lower right corner
of the boot lid. Your car would of course not have the automatic script, and
If yous does not have the holes for “Jaguar”, I would not drill them, as it
is pain to wash and wax the car with the script, and it already says “Jaguar”
on the back up lens situated a couple inches away!! Besides, it does not
matter how many places the car says “Jaguar” (4 on the wheel covers, back up lens,
grill, plus a leaper, 99.9% of the people who see it will argue with you that
it is a Rolls or a Bentley. Keep them guessing.
As I said, I drove the car to work today – absyml heater in 35 degree
weather!!! Even though my thermo choke works, the car sure does not like
cold weather. Takes considerably longer than my 1.5 mile drive to work to get
it so it does not cough, spit, sputter, kill, shake and all the rest. Once
warm, it runs fine and really gobbles up the gas!!

Oops-- in looking out my window now I see that I got it backwards. Just
above the housing, in BLOCK letters, it says “Automatic” and above that in SCRIPT
it says “Jaguar”. The script Jaguar is very attractive, but I still would not
drill my boot lid to put it on if it was not there when I got the car. Bob

In reply to a message from Zim Ferg sent Wed 2 Jan 2008:

Many thanks for your responses and I will have a closer look to see
if the boot lid was ever replaced or the holes filled.

Cheers
