Concours Series II arm rests

Concours Series II Arm Rests

I have a 1969 series II 2+2, no. 40996 with a build date of Jan 27, 1969.
The car, as it was when I bought it, has armrests on each door. The arm
rests are plain black, no chrome trim or other embellishments. I don't know
for sure, but I suspect they are original; the screw positions match to the
captive nuts on the door.  I always understood that series II Es came
without armrests. Question:  Is it possible that Jaguar used existing
stocks of door panels and armrests on early series II cars and hence the
armrests are correct?  If so how would I go about convincing a judge at
concours? Any clarification greatfully appreciated. - John Walker

John:  It is my understanding that early series two E-Types had no arm
rests but that later Series II did have them.   My 69 FHC does not but my
friends 70 OTS does have them. The car no. of my 69 is 1R25820, which if I
recall, is in the first 10% of production of Series II. - Bob Reid, 61
E-Type OTS, 69 E-Type FHC, 73 E-Type OTS, 84 XJ6

Your armrests sound like those on my 1970 OTS. - Regards, Jim Ashbrook
