Welcome to the forum Barniby,

1963 was well before the time of VIN on UK manufactured vehicles. Chassis and engine numbers provide much less information.

The 888460V suggests a 1963 E-Type Series 1, 3.8 litre FHC, LHD. The engine number prefix RA indicates manufactured Feb/Mar 1963.

Please follow this link New Member Area - Intro a MUST - Jaguar Forums - Jaguar Enthusiasts Forum to the New Member Area - Intro a MUST forum and post some information about yourself and your vehicle for all members to see. In return you'll get a proper welcome and some useful advice about posting to the forum.

If that's about right it's a valuable special car. I expect Jaguar Heritage & others will have details.

Good to hear you got the information from JHT ...... and I was close with interpreting the chassis and engine numbers.
