Love the pictures, does anyone know where I can get a towbar for a MK2 jag?
When ordering a Mk II new you had the option of selecting a towbar as an extra, I understand it was a Witter towbar. Although Witter are still going they no longer stock or produce this item. You'll probably have a heck of a job getting an original / used part.
If you don't fancy parting with £400.00, this is a photo of a towbar (? possibly aftermarket ?) as fitted by the dealer in Australia when the car was new;
It doesn't look as though it would be a hugely difficult component to fabricate for someone with the skills. If you look at the angles of the brackets and the underside of a Mk II tyrewell you can see how it was fixed.
Surely the race car and skeleton trailer must weigh curse word all.
True, but the van would be geared very low in order to carry a 10 cwt (half ton) payload, pre 1958 the commercial vehicle speed limit was 30 mph, then it was raised to 40 mph, vans would not have been manufactured for speed but simply as load luggers in the post war years.
