XJ6 engine plate - What do the numbers mean ???

Hi, Could someone explain to me what the numbers on the plate on the
drivers side wheel well mean. Mine read as follows.

UH2T68544BW 8L55745L

5T37310 02541327

I am hoping that by these numbers I can confirm the year of the car
(Prev owner said it was a 1977), and the engine size.

Thanks in advance, Garett

Garrett,
From what I see, the UH2 means you have a 1977 XJC (2-door coupe) and
the 8L5 means it has a 4.2 litre XK engine -- made late in the series.

Re: XJ6 engine plate - What do the numbers mean ???

I stand corrected on the car being a two door Coupe. The T in the UH2T
means it is a long version of the XJ6 4 door saloon
http://www.motorcarsltd.com/information/jaguar-vin.htm and this as well
http://www.johnscars.com/xj.htm At any rate, the UT means it is a 1977.
http://www.seattlejagclub.org/xj6c/

ALL of the US XJ6 motorcars that were manufactured for the US market had 4.2
liter motors. Here is an Identification page from SNG Barrett.
http://www.sngbarratt.com/UK%20PDFs%...nformation.pdf

As I work with older Jags and I am not familiar with the newer chassis
numbers, I was thrown by the chassis configuration. But what these pages
confirm is that you are driving a 1977 (confirmed by the UH), Jaguar XJ6L
Series II long saloon (2T), Left Hand Drive with a 4.2 liter XK engine. I
believe it should have Zenith Stromberg Carbs.
