About This Site

XKEDATA.com is a project to help people find information about a particular car or series of cars by serial number.

So...What is the Difference Between This Site and Traditional Registers?

This site welcomes participation from anyone interested in these cars. We aren't experts, but there is also no exclusivity to the data hosted here. You don't have to be a member (we don't have members, or everyone is a member, however you'd like to look at it) to list a car.

In some cases this open model can lead to inaccuracies. But with your help the site can become more accurate--it's as easy as clicking on "add/edit" when you see a mistake, entering the car number, and editing the information.

If a site user (perhaps you?) sees a car with such-and-such car number in a classified ad (or at a car show) that's what will be entered. It's all that's known at that point. But over time, hopefully more information will be added, corrections will be made, and at the end of the day we'll know a bit more about a particular car than we would otherwise.

No one who contributes here (as far as we know) has the factory build sheets in front of them--take what you find here with a grain of salt. Ask any marque expert, or the keeper of a private register, what they think of this site--they generally all have the same view--and take their words to heart if you're doing in-depth research.

Unlike this site, private registers are generally proprietary--and for good reason. A lot of work goes into maintaining a vetted list of cars. However, we feel there is value to the "wikipedia" model of a user-editable, user-updated online registry. There is value here, and we welcome your involvement, whether as student or (especially) as professor.

What about scrapped cars?

We want to learn the fate of every Jaguar E-Type, so if you know of cars which have gone to the big parking lot in the sky, by all means enter them.
