The Jaguar Heritage Trust preserves the rich legacy of Jaguar Cars Ltd. As well as maintaining Jaguar's priceless collection of historic vehicles, the Trust is responsible for preserving Jaguar's extensive archive of business documents, artefacts and product records for some of the most desirable cars ever made.
Established for the nation in 1983, the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust is a registered educational charity. Its aim is to preserve the rich heritage of Jaguar Cars Limited and all its predecessor marques including Swallow, SS, Daimler and Lanchester. The Trust's major objective is to collect and preserve vehicles and artefacts, both past and present, which relate to and reflect the history, industrial development and social impact of Jaguar and its associated companies.
The Trust preserves a collection of over 140 historic vehicles, many of which can be seen at events throughout Europe, with permanent displays at the Coventry Transport Museum and the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon, both in the UK.
We provide Heritage Certificates (for a fee) to the owners of classic Jaguar and Daimler vehicles based on the original production records.
We can provide Chassis Number data to assist with the identification of vehicles exempt from UK vehicle excise duty.
A huge collection of over 30,000 archive images. High quality prints or digital copies can be supplied for personal or commercial use.
Researchers are able to visit us and consult or examine original archive material by prior appointment.
