Jaguar Kougar 4.2 total nut and bolt rebuild plus 500 miles - for sale
Here is my absolutely gorgeous vintage themed British Jag special. I will give a more detailed review below. but she is correctly registered as a 1967 Jaguar Sports and has a specially prepared Jag 4. 2 litre engine with a five-speed getrag gearbox. The car is created with adjustable suspension. fire extinguisher and removeable roll bar. She is low. sounds lovely and goes really well. I admit she is a toy. but to say so isn't derogatory. she is also a really useable and enjoyable one. She is here to sell. so that I can fund a more sedate tourer that I can take my grandchildren on outings. Lot 48 at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2012 was a very similar car. not fully rebuilt and with a less powerful 3. 8 engine. I believe. It sold for $74800. http://www. goodingco. com/vehicle/1961-jaguar-kougar/ Now for some more detail. She has undergone a "nut and bolt" rebuild over ten years by a retired mechanic who specialises in older Jags and only done 500 miles since. As he said to me. I seem to enjoy working on them more than driving them! What luck to have people like that to buy cars from. Now the details - this is a Mk1 Kougar. The Mk1 remains the prettiest car of its genre in my opinion and I think this is the prettiest of the Mk1's. having had the wrap-around screen replaced by fly-screens. The original tonneau cover that fits well but is faded. comes with the car. Free car tax on this vehicle and cheap classic insurance. The parts list goes like this :-
Engine - 4. 2 series 2 XJ6 fitted with series 3 short skirt pistons. This is a big valve head. A 3. 8 Jag flywheel was used. Triple Mk10 Jag 2" SU carbs and manifolds with electrically operated choke. This is quite an expensive bit of kit on its own!
Gearbox and drivetrain - 5 speed getrag with fabricated adaptor plate. 3. 6 liter Jag clutch and S-type rear end assembly.
Suspension - front. S-type with adjustable wishbones. Rear. S-type with 3. 8 E-type coil springs.
Brakes - S-type discs all round with Coopercraft 4 pot calipers on the front and XJ6 calipers on the rear.
Chassis is purpose built and substantial -see library pic.
Wheels - Aston Martin wires with triple lug spinners.
Car winter stored in a Carcoon. nbsp;on wheel shaped blocks. to prevent tyre flats.
I was asked if the car could be raced. Well. she has a fire extinguisher. anti-roll bar and adjustable suspension and she goes like the proverbial off a shovel - but I've never raced a car in my life and I have no idea what - if anything - would need to be done to take her racing.
Approximate dimensional information:- Length: 4039 mm / 159 in Width: 1676 mm / 66 in Height: 1016 mm / 40 in Wheelbase: 2540 mm / 100 in She weighs in at about 2040 lbs - without humans. according to the men in white coats. You are welcome to view the car by appointment. in Ringwood Hants.
I see no reason why the car shouldn't be driven home by a new buyer. but do remember this is a very light. very powerful car and you should really get used to her before putting your foot down!
Payment - by bank transfer please.
