Factory-Original Jaguar MK1 & MK2 Originality guide including 240, 340, S-Type, 420, Daimler V8 and Sovereign by Nigel Thorley, published in 2017 by Herridge & Sons Ltd.
The Mk1 and Mk 2 and their derivatives have been heading the list of desirable classic cars for many years. More and more worn-out, semi-derelict and long-forgotten examples are being dragged out of garages and barns to be restored and given new life.
For those seeking originality in a restoration, or considering the purchase of a car, or even noting points of originality or otherwise in a car they already own, this book provides the comprehensive guide to factory specifications, equipment and finishes in all departments.
It covers engine and transmission, body panels, interior and exterior trim and badging, electrics, dashboard, instruments, switches and controls, lamps, under-bonnet components, paint and trim colours - in fact everything right down to the tool kit, from beginning of production to the end.
The text is accompanied by some 300 specially commissioned colour photographs of outstanding examples of the cars, enabling the reader to view every model and variant in considerable detail.
