But the piece-de-resistance is under the hood where a JOHN'S CARS professionally installed Chevy 350 TBI V-8 engine resides. coupled to a TH 700R4 overdrive trans (2100RPM at 70; note also that the V12 Series III came with the Limited Slip Differential). Not a hot-rodded motor (not that it needed to be). but just a smooth-running. reliable as the cast iron anvil it is. small block Chevy. Now. you've heard the horror stories about amateur small-block swaps. but this was done with the TOP-GRADE components supplied by the brainiacs at John's Cars in Dallas <a href=http://www. brokenkitty. com/xj/xjv8/> see here for more info. They've been doing the Chevy conversions for over 30 years. so they've pretty much ironed out the bugs. don'tcha know? This car even includes an ODBII adapter to verify critical engine and transmission functions. Again. this car got the full treatment: John's Cars Radiator (with dual elec fans). AC and Heat interface. and Guage Package. so that all instrument functions read correctly. The exhaust is new as well and the John's Cars fuel tank crossover so that the car can be filled from either side. All this makes for a no-fuss ownership experience.
So if you want the comfort. serenity. and stop-traffic good looks of the CLASSIC JAG SEDAN without all the ownership hassles. and without spending any more than you would for a well-kept Honda Accord. look no further. Or rather. look VERY closely at the pictures here. See if you can find a flaw! And then see if you don't agree that this is the smartest used Jag purchase you could possibly make!
Please note that the VIN shown on this ad is NOT accurate (its is for a 1985 US spec 6cyl) - the correct Euro VIN would not be accepted by eBay. The correct VIN is SAJJDRLW4CC390811. The car is offered with a clear Oklahoma title which notes it as a "Classic" and is based on the correct VIN (I'll send a copy upon request). Sorry for any confusion!
But do not procrastinate - this car is going to find its prideful new owner sooner than later. I suspect. Please feel free to e-mail me your questions. which I will answer for all to see. Include your phone number and the degree of seriousness of your intent and I'll discuss further with you. I will gladly arrange an independent inspection here in Atlanta at your expense.
