Jaguar

208, 208M and 208S Jaguar 2.4

The white 208 and metallic blue 208M Jaguars were issued in March 1957.

In October 1960 it gets seats and suspension and a new creamy-yellow colour.

213 and 213S Jaguar 2.4 Fire Chief's Car

The 208 gets adapted in 1959 with the addition of the same roof furniture as had been used for the 209 Riley Police Car.

In 1961 this gets suspension and an interior. All models are believed to have fixed wheels, usually smooth for the 213 and shaped for the 213S.

238 Jaguar Mk X

First issued in 1962, this well-featured model came with two suitcases in the boot, one which opened.

The first editions were in solid colours: pale pea green and pale blue. Later a range of metallic colours were issued and these include:

  • cerise (shades)
  • silver
  • dark blue
  • silver-blue
  • emerald green
  • Kingfisher blue

A few special editions were made for VIP guests in brass.

Most colours had either red or lemon interiors. A few, like the dark blue metallic edition, are known with red and yellow interiors.

307 Jaguar E Type

Issued in 1962 in just two colours, plum-red or dark metallic grey. It has a detachable roof which is understood always to have been in either red or plum-red but black examples have also become available, believed to be modern additions by collectors.

There was also a very limted run of special editions in brass for VIP guests.


312 Jaguar E Type Competition Model

A silver-plated edition was issued in 1964, with a racing driver and no plastic hard top.

335 Jaguar E Type 2+2

In 1968 the E Type was replaced with the (bigger) 2+2 fastback edition with 4.2 litre badging.

This was available in two colours: red and metallic blue. Each had a black interior.


374 Jaguar E Type 2+2

In 1970 the Whizzwheels version of the 335 Jaguar came out.

Initially it was the 4.2 car, as before but with fewer features, in a quite scarce red and the more common bright yellow.

Later it was adapted slightly and issued, still as 374, as the 5.3 V12 version of the car. This was only produced in bright yellow.
