The SS register secretary didn't believe me when I told him the location of the chassis number on the first SS Jaguars but I have photos from several cars now so the chassis were stamped (he maintains that they were not).

I wonder if your SSII chassis was also stamped is a similar location, namely on the off side near to the rear front spring trunion?

Removed the paint and checked the chassis and no numbers stamped. I rechecked the number on the chassis and that reads 134632. I would have posted pics but the battery was flat Sad

The SS register secretary did tell me that 134632 was a chassis number for a SSII but wouldn't tell me anything because he thought mine wasn't an SSII chassis Rolling Eyes . He compared pictures and said no. I agree there are some cosmetic changes(it was used for a kit car and has a prop guard added) but 80-90% was similar in my eyes. Suppose it could be a little nine but did they share numbers between different end users??

This is the chassis of a 1937 SS Jaguar 2 litre saloon. Although a very different car from an SSII it would be interesting to know if the SSII chassis was stamped in a similar place i.e. near the offside front spring rear trunion.

I think when this was made up as a kit car they stamped the chassis number onto the chassis rail which seemed to irk the expert because he said SS never did that.


Could you take a photo of this number and tell me where on the chassis it is?

I do have a pic which I will post later. Definitely 134632 and it's on the front near side chassis rail on the upper surface half way along the front leaf spring region.

My interest in seeing a photo is to see the font used.

Thanks,

Peter

Here you go. The only odd digit is the last number, its seems like this was damaged and re stamped ????

Also I requested info from Jaguar heritage and they acknowledged there was some records but I would need to pay 45 to find out

Well for what it's worth I think that's a genuine period chassis number and I think that makes your chassis to be from an SSII.
