INTERNATIONAL Mk VII/VIIM/VIII/IX REGISTER: STATUS UPDATE

The Register has two main purposes:
(1) To determine just how many of these magnificent luxury/racing saloons still exist;
(2) To create a worldwide network for lovers of these Jaguars.

To accomplish these purposes, we need information from you (by the way, registration of your car(s) costs nothing!).
If you own or know of any of these cars, send the following information to any of our Registrars.
Owner's name, address, phone, Email if there.
Condition: original, restored, excellent, good, fair, poor.
Numbers from commission (data) plate, on scuttle (firewall) behind engine -- chassis, engine, body, gearbox. The chassis # is most important because we're listing the cars chronologically by chassis #, as Jaguar did when they were built.
Colours, exterior & interior (note: all VIIs and VIIMs were single-tone; most VIIIs and IXs were two-tone)
Tools in doors -- all there? some missing? all missing?
Any additional information on car(s) - history, modifications, etc.
Regarding the Internet: As of now, we havemore than  178 people who've registered electronically. We've created a method of reaching them all at once, and we're using it very successfully in many countries to help purpose (2), building the worldwide network. If you contact us electronically, your address will be added to this list.
We appreciate your help in trying to document these marvelous old Jaguar saloons!
