Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Brian Devlin tells the complete story of the assembly of Jaguar & Daimler XJ6 cars at the former New Zealand Motor Corporation Plant Quarantine Road, Stoke, Nelson, between 1971 and 1978. The factory has been gone now for more than twenty years and there were no factory records remaining to help his project. With tenacious, painstaking research and much travel to find the data and surviving cars, Brian has been able to document 189 survivors from a total production of 1512.
