This car has an original factory fitted 4-speed manual, although has 'BW' on the chassis number.

It would be interesting to know how many if any of the 26 built prior to yours
None are recorded at Jaguar Heritage
As you have so much information on yours I suspect you have a Heritage Certificate

Hi Jim
The data plate shown is correct for the car as it was built/
in early 1975

2W 1130--Body number 5W 1404
Gear box number KM 1010 all manual gearbox's start KM
would be interesting to know the Gear box number of yours
Having just created the V12 Man Data Base we now know 385 were built & not 352

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
