All the gathered information is free to use for private purposes, but if there are commercial reasons please contact me first. There will likely be no charge but I would like to know as a point of courtesy.  I have no commercial interest in jacks. I maintain this website purely as a hobby and for the benefit of all.

Request to vendors: Please feel free to use the information from these databases in your adverts. An acknowledgement of the source would be most welcome. However, please do not twist any of the information. Where I say along the lines: 'May be for car 'X' please make this clear in your advert. An altered statement saying: 'It is for car 'X' will create false facts and misinformation. If you know for certainty a jack's heritage please contact me so that I can amend the entry. Thank you.

If you know of other British car jack types or have useful information about any of the jack types listed then please Contact Me. The accuracy of all the data relies very heavily on feedback.

I have provided a quick link by vehicle type in the Vehicle Jack Index . I have only listed vehicles where there is a high degree of certainty that an appropriate jack has been identified. Where more than one jack type is listed against a vehicle please check the appropriate databases for additional information. For example only one or two jacks of one type have been found in one mark of Austin Healey, the majority having another type. New information and corrections are always most welcome.

There is also a page for unknown jacks.  Any help with identification is most welcome.

As from June 2015 I state in the sales whether the jack has a handle or not. This often appears in short as NH (No Handle) or WH (With Handle). When nothing is stated post June 2015 the jack has an integrated handle.

When not working on these databases I maintain and run a 1958 MGA. You can read more about my car on: http://www.mgaroadster.co.uk/ .
