I've owned this car proudly for 12-13 years after buying it from another long term owner. I believe the mileage to be completely accurate and this car looks to have been always garaged. Very very little rust and nothing that appears to be more than surface deep. Before I owned it. it had at least a partial repaint in the original color and mechanically was well kept. I drove this car reliably on the weekends for a couple years then took out the engine/trans to repair what I thought was a leaking rear main seal. It ended up being the oil pan gaskets which I replaced. The motor went back in with new mounts where needed and started right up. This car always ran rich which I attributed to carburetors sitting too long. Rather then rebuild the originals carbs. I opted to purchase an early set of triple SU carbs with the 3-piece manifold. I rebuilt all 3 and installed. The car started with no smoke but idling very high with seemingly no vacuum advance. Power brakes also stopped working at that time despite having a newer assist unit. I attribute all these symptoms to a severe vacuum leak caused by my amateur carb and manifold install. The air conditioning did not work so I removed everything to do with that under the hood but it is included. The car has great compression and all matching numbers body/frame/engine/trans. The tires are probably 20 years old. There are 2 dimples in the hood where some knucklehead tried to jack the car up by the radiator years ago. The are 2 dents in the rear that look to be caused by the over-riders during a collision. There is an area in back of the passenger side door that is wrinkled slightly from what looks to be poorly applied body filler from decades ago. All gages worked. The dome light did not work.

Included with the car are boxes of NEW parts including but not limited to: Front rotors. complete front end kit with neoprene bushings. an electronic ignition (crane). cooling fan motor (round) with adapter to fit square brackets. copper and hide hammer. spinner removal tool. clutch alignment tool. cam cover gasket set. plug wire shroud. hood latch. triple carb ram tubes and various gaskets.

Also included are the original carbs and manifold. the original fuel pump that was replaced years ago. nbsp;a 4. 2 litre 3-carb manifold. and an entire spare engine (stuck) from an early 70's XJ6 if you want it. Spare used headlights and anything that was removed from car such as original emisions crossover. Lots of paperwork and receipts.

I encourage anyone seriously interested to ask for any specific pictures they would like. I have tried to take pictures of the few bad areas of this car so there are no surprises after the sale. The car will be available for viewings by appointment and I encourage that. This color looks dull in the garage but pops outdoors in natural light. When I was driving this car. it did shimmy under heavy braking which is why I bought the new rotors that are included. The interior is mostly original and very showable if not show quality with some light cleaning.

This car was built in October of 1970. one of the very last true 2-seaters made by Jaguar.
