Default Body Dolly

Hey gang,

Has anyone built a dolly to support their Series II car? I want to be able to drop out the rear end as well as the front cross member and skate the body tub around with ease.

Default DOLLY

A simple 2.5 x 2.5 steel square bar with swivel and rigid caster wheels works well on both front and rear. The same dolly can be used on the Mk2, XJ6, and other Jaguar frames.

  • 2.5 x 2.5 x 60 square steel bar 11 ga (need two)
  • 5.5 x 5.0 steel mount plates 7 ga (need four)
  • 5 x 2 rigid caster wheels with brake 800 lb capacity with 4 x 4.5 mounting plate and 6.5" height FOR REAR (need two)
  • 8 x 2 swivel caster wheels 1100 lb capacity with 4 x 4.5 mounting plate and 9.5" height FOR FRONT (need two)
  • fastening hardware: bolts, nuts, washers as required

Jaguar frame dolly

Weld on a plate at the end to mount the castor wheels. Rear wheels should be slight larger to enable the frame to remain roughly horizontal without a downward slope.

Front Dolly on XJ6

This dolly can easily transport the frame on a flatbed truck if needed. Also handy for painting the raw frame.
