Pretty sure there were only two T-plate Se6as, my Yellow Peril, and a red one (see this thread). So, depends on the colour? :)
Yellow,or more of a slightly darker mustard colour in the picture,I don't recall the Reliant name.
But it will be your car,you need to buy a copy of the mag!

Car Building

Some interesting videos have recently been put on youtube showing two car builds that took place over the last 5 years or so by a friend of mine,Ian Cowan. I have known Ian for nearly 50 years but I don't get to visit very often because he lives a distance away in the wilds of Cumbria,but when I las...

Either the fan is about to cut in or it's ready to overheat.

No, they're original to S1 XJ6 too. If it's on this car, it's as it was built ;)
OK,I'm probably thinking of the XJ S2 which I think had more utilitarian steel lifting brackets

Oaksey's XJ6

Just testing my Jag knowledge,and I'm probably wrong,but are those two alloy lifting hooks under the head nuts from an earlier period?

Oaksey's XJ6

Very nice...and I can't help but think what this would be like fitted to your S6 Coupe :)

Not that you would,of course,but perhaps these "small block" Jag engines are not too heavy?

Barons 11 December 2018 SE4 - £12K!!

To be honest I never made any serious attempt to get my Dad to buy that old Merc...although I tried hard and failed to get him to have a Jag mk2 3.8 to replace our old Rover 75. It was at this same dealer a year or two later that I saw the ideal car my uncle was looking for,a one year old Sunbeam Ra...

Barons 11 December 2018 SE4 - £12K!!

So Barons were pretty much spot-on with their guide price...Looks a lovely car & probably well-bought at the price. Comments about the chassis reminded me that, many years ago, I was interested in a white 'Straight Six' that was for sale at £300 - (yes, I'm going back a bit & to put it in perspecti...

Towing a car with wire wheels

Tricky one that about responsibility. Knock on wheels are such a rareity now so could the tow company be expected to know all about them? Or would it be covered anyway by their insurance as a general mishap? If the owner knew they were going to tow the vehicle in the wrong direction then perhaps the...

Really..... Sweeping comment ? Not sure why you have a problem with this. Would you say you know more about Scimitars than this Auction house? I would hope so. Regarding normal modern car purchases I have had about 80 cars in my lifetime and I tend to read and research every one before I buy it,and...

Sadly the motor trade consists of people who seem to know very little of what they are dealing with...and this applies to modern cars as much as old ones! Really..... Sweeping comment ?

Barons 11 December 2018 SE4 - £12K!!

Its mad to think that reference in the add to the car having a Mays Head has been removed so quickly, Barons are watching. Its all a bit 1984. Then perhaps they should change the bit where triple SUs are stated as an option where in fact they were standard. Sadly the motor trade consists of people ...
