Coventry Auto Components Ltd

We are very happy to welcome you to our website.

2020 has not been a good year for many small businesses, but we have managed to come through it here, stronger and wiser. We have been constantly investing in even better and more diverse lines of much needed XK products. Lockdown has promoted an upsurge in owners working on their cars at home (government enforced garage time!) and because we actually manufacture and stock thousands of our own products, we were able to keep a good flow of products moving through, to trade and private enthusiasts alike. You may note we now feature, in the header bar above, a video link section to appreciative customer’s blogs and online videos we feel may be of interest to you. This range is constantly expanding so please join our Facebook page for constant updates and new developments.

We have continued funding new projects and are proud to be making even more of the best quality, independently manufactured, parts in the world. Our superb, ever expanding range of quality parts are exclusively U.K. made and this last couple of years we have started casting even more heavy-duty pedals, drop links and other previously rare parts. We do try to manufacture to the highest quality, parts, panels and accessories that can be fitted to your 1950's Classic or 'special' and to ensure this we keep a vast store of original patterns.

We provide Jaguar XK120, XK140 & XK150 owners, parts re-sellers and workshops with the best professional and pleasant service. When you browse our superb on-line shop, you will see we publish and update our own artwork and provide interesting product data, 'tricks of the trade' fitting advice and links to other associated parts. It is more complex to list much of our second-hand parts stock, in the way we can with normal stock, as condition can vary so much, so please do contact us about any parts you cannot locate, especially the rarer stuff! Please note that Search Bars (engines) may give totally different results for singular descriptions over plural, so its often worth dropping the 's' off the end of a name (we try to describe in the singular for this reason).You can also grab yourself a bargain or two, as we often post 'online special offers' exclusively on our shop.(rather than platforms such as eBay that just charge us additional fees for our goods!)

We are actually a first line manufacturer and so invest in commissioning production runs from specialist manufacturers using our own exclusive tooling, referencing from original samples. Wherever possible we manufacture using modern, higher quality base materials to give you peace of mind when restoring your cherished 50’s classic.

Stuart MacNeill, our Director is a renown Classic XK Jaguar Specialist, an ex-Jaguar stores (CPS), accredited Group Leader and (quite probably the only one you will ever find in the Jaguar aftermarket). Coventry born and bred, he has been in the motor trade for over 35 years (in 2019) and he has run the company since 1994. Not just a parts box-opener, he actually understands engineering of parts from the material construction, right through manufacture to supply and correct finish and fitting, how it works and why it works. He can advise you on correct procedures for logical and progressive assembly of the vehicle, which is great for you chaps that don’t like to read the instruction manuals! He also writes articles for specialist Jaguar magazines such as XK Club and also publications that are available on new-stands worldwide. Some are to be found above, reproduced in the 'Articles' section on this website.

When not at work, he can be found playing with his XK 4.2, Classic Camaro Z28, hovercraft or practising stunts on his wakeboard at Kingsbury Water Park behind a powerboat. He’s not really getting old gracefully, as he has 'The Need For Speed!'

Salesman Barry (BAZ) Ruddock is an amazing mechanic, who is as good with repairing modern Jaguars as he is with classics and everyday cars, and in fact loves messing with anything mechanical.

Lorna is the company’s Accounts and Office Manager and has been with the company for over 26 years. She’s the quiet one in the corner that everyone loves chatting to when they call.

Our Storeman, Gordon, has been with us over 20 years and ensures all your parts parcels are professionally packed and received undamaged. Yes, it's his beautiful handwriting that you admired on your parcel and his careful packing you have had to fight your way through!
We are a very 'personal' company and many customers become lifelong friends as well as loyal customers, even after their cars are completed, and customers are always welcomed with a cuppa and regulars know to pre-order parts to ensure they are all  here as stock is constantly changing.

We can always help you, whether your XK is a racer, a daily driver or a concours show car.
