[Saloon-lovers] MK 7-8-9 Fitted Luggage

In my MK7 M ( exported to France ), I have a set of fitted luggage;
There are four suitcases made of plywood and covered of “Hardura”
material ( grey colour as the rest of the boot ) wich completely fill
the boot.
There is no indication of origin.
See below a side elevation " illustration " of the 4 suitcases._______________

In his book "Jaguar Mk7 to 420G " Nigel Thorley writes (page 43) :
“With the MK 7M came the availability of specially made and fitted
luggage … made by Auto-Luggage Limited in Essex and marketed through
Henlys.
Two fitted suitcases neatly fitted the irregular shape of the boot
…etc”

I am a bit sceptical about the " two suitcases " because they must have
been huge !

Has anyone got or seen pictures of fitted luggage ?

By the way mine are quite useful when we leave for holidays ; If anyone
is interested, I can send pictures and plans , as they are quite easy to
replicate

===============================
I would be very, very interested. I’ve been looking for a set like that for
years, and always thought it would be fun to try to build. I’ll gladly
defray your photo/postage/etc. expenses.

Thanks.
