Hi, it's a d-type replica rahter than an xke, but hopefully someone can help.

We are trying to find out the manufacturer of a d-type replica we have bought.
It has the mechanicals out of a 1975 xj6 (we think this because it has the jaguar british leyland plate on the firewall). The chassis is spaceframe, and most of the panels are fibreglass.
I have posted some information and pictures on the following website: http://au.geocities.com/dtypejaguarreplica
Any information or suggestions would be appreciated - there are links to e-mail and a guestbook on the website.

Thanks in advance, Nick

I'm not sure, but maybe XK Evocation can help.

The Jaguar D-Type won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1955, 1956, and 1957.

Hi, I happened across your posting. I have a friend with a D Replica and he is trying to find out the same answers. Have you had any luck and if so, from whom?

Left a message in the guestbook.

Reynard designed chassis, kit by LR roadster or RAM which correctly, amongst other places, was located in Newmarket.
Talk to Roger Klimcke of Roger Klimcke racing as him and his collegue worked for RAM automotive and buildt these.
Funnily enough I was just talking to Roger about a D type. He is currently finishing my RAM Cobra replica race car.

Hello,

I need more picture to tell you which label is this D type. Accessories are quiet standard, like wheels, steering wheels, speedometer. Everybody can use them easily. Please tell me if the car has IRS or not,
Chassis plate can not infrm you when the car has been built.
Moreover, a lot of amazing d type manufacturers are in New Zealand but they are producing most of the time Aluminium body.
I see interesting details like correkt steering wheels, korrekt speedo tacho meters, dip switch which shows that the guy attached importance to details outside the car even if the car is in GRP with not right details under the bonnet....quiet an interesting difference between visible and hidden....


Please take photos of details and so one....
BR
