Thanks for the replies and info.
CalVin had gave me details posted, but was interested in the build date, as Ross had said it was built in 52,

Youd need to get a heritage certificate from Gaydon or do an email request for information from them

They should be !You asked if 80" seats cushions were the same as your Series 3...they should not be for the reason I tried to explain. If your S3 has sliding seat bases  these have different cushions. Even if the Series 3  has simple clips to hold the bases  standard  80" seat bases securing system is very different. 80" cushions were a different profile and  size. 

( There was a post about the problems of text size when posting from a phone/tablet. It was something to do with accidentally scrolling down or pressing enter between lines. Hopefully someone will explain again .)

Your vehicle is a CKD so despatched out from the factory in kit form and then built at a later date in Australia. This discrepancy in dates has given a few people a headache recently. A Heritage Certificate will not give you a build date, but try the search on here as some others have asked the question you ask.

Hi, we have chassis no 36660004 and it was packed as a CKD on 15th July 1952 in Solihull  and shipped on the same day.
I got this information from JLR via Michael Bishop (for a fee) I think it would probably tell you more than a heritage certA
