A different engine and gearbox is shown above compared with the original numbers on Heritage Certificate. Not surprising with such a competition history

I am convinced that the original engine was changed by Jaguar Factory immediately after the 1952 Champions Race, being a LHD to be sent to US . Very probably the factory built a new identification plate with new engine or/and gearbox numbers ( I saw it in the picture sent to me by the seller several years ago ) when fitting a new engine .

The car, driven by Tony Gaze, had drive train problems in that Race , finishing for that reason at the rear of the pack. But there also was a - story in the story - concerning this car in that race.. I will talk about everything in an article I am writing at the moment concerning the 1952 Silverstone Champions Race .

About the declared info above "built 1951" it should be surely wrong due the position of chassis numbers . . . . . there was a small change in early-mid 1952 , so impossible to be built in 1951, as obviously per its chassis numbers . . . . . .

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
