Welcome to the Posters page


Since Feb 2000  visitors have been here

The Collectibles list was created in February 2000 as a forum for discussion between all Jaguar Cars enthusiasts who have the irresistable urge to collect automobilia for the marque. This page depicts mostly official factory issue Jaguar posters. You can subscribe to the list from here using the Majordomo web interface.

Please note that everything you see here is for your information and reference only. The items are not generally for sale although I occasionally may have duplicates for disposal. Please note that I have limited photographic facilities for large items so some of the images are not as good as I would like. However, hopefully they show you what is available. Some of the early posters easily command prices in excess of 800 Sterling each!

P J Evans SS Cars - 1936

Not strictly a factory poster although the major elements were supplied by SS Cars Ltd. This poster was probably a bit of private enterprise by P J Evans Ltd of Birmingham. Does anyone know of other examples? Size is 15 x 20 inches.

Mark IV - ca 1946 - 47

A black and white post-war showroom poster for the 2.5L Jaguar Saloon. Size is 24.5 x 20 inches on heavy cartridge paper A black and white post-war showroom poster for the 3.5L Jaguar Saloon. Size is 20 x 24.5 inches on heavy cartridge paper

The original record runs - 1948/1950

Celebrating 'Goldie' Gardners record run by a Jaguar engined streamlined MG-based special in September 1948. Size 22 x 29 inches. A very rare poster! Celebrating the original Jabbeke record run by Jaguar in May 1949. Size 19.5 x 29 inches. A rare and very desirable poster in common with most early posters that have illustrations. The same artwork appears in the XK120 'Maroon' brochure of the period. 50 years later, Jaguar issued an anniversary poster that referred back to this one. Leslie Johnson and Stirling Moss with their XK120 record run at Montlhery in 1950. Size 22 x 29 inches. Another rare poster.

XK120 - 1951-52

A black and white showroom poster from the early 1950s depicting the XK120 OTS. Size is 24.5 x 20 inches on heavy cartridge paper. A colour showroom poster from 1952 depicting the Montlhery record breaking car high on the banking at night. Painted by Roy Nocklolds who was responsible for many of Jaguar's most memorable images. Size is 24 x 17.5 inches on heavy cartridge paper.
The full size version of the poster from above right. One of the most valuable Jaguar posters there is.

Jaguar Racing/Rally Victories from the late '40s onwards

These posters had to be sent somehow - here's a couple of original factory mailing tubes from the very early 1950s as sent to a Canadian dealer. Each tube originally contained four posters according to the annotations
