I am new to this list. Hello All!

I have an opportunity to purchase a long time favorite, a '69 2+2!!!! I do not however know where/how to look for the engine markings to determine if this is in fact the original engine.

Can someone please help?

Thank you very much.

Hello Jeff

The engine number on a '69 E-Type is just above the oil filter housing on the right hand side of the engine. You will get a better view if the air filter cannister is removed and you use a flashlight.

In case it is of interest to you the engine numbers for 2+2 Series II cars started at 7R 35001 onwards. The 2 seater started at 7R 1001 onwards.

You can verify if the engine in the car you are looking at is original by supplying some detail to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust in Coventry, UK.
They will research their records and give you the date of manufacture and delivery, original colours, engine, gearbox and chassis numbers etc. It costs around £30 (not sure what that is in $ these days !)

If you wand more information please E mail me at Witshire57@hotmail.com and I will try to help.
