I am just about to start restoring a 1956 XK140 OTS (UK right hand drive car) and will need many parts along the way. I am getting disolussioned and confused by parts (both “original” second hand and after market remakes) that suppliers and people claim are for this car, but seem at closer inspection might be from XK120’s, perhaps of different dates, from overseas LHD cars, or as aftermaket items not exactly the same dimensions or shapes as the Jaguar Factory!!! Can anyone therefore please help me with photographs SPECIFICALLY of original 1956 XK140 OTS RHD cars that have NOT had restortation or new parts fitted, and I would like to see:
- Front bumper and grill
- Seats (not the bucket type)
- Hood and side screens.
I’m sure I’ll have similar problems with the reproduction rubber trim profiles, etc but want to get the larger parts correct for this 1956 car, and visual photos of originals would certainly help me. Thanks
