1978 Jaguar XJ6L with Chevrolet 350 Engine & Turbo 350 Transmission Professional Conversion and restoration. I have owned this car since 1986 - Yes. 30 years. The conversion was professionally done using a "Johns Cars" conversion kit. a GM Crate Motor & a Rebuilt Turbo 350 transmission. It is a classic. can go to car shows & cruise ins. but can be done in comfortable air conditioned comfort. or. could be a daily driver. You cannot tell that this engine & transmission did not come in this car from the factory. All wiring harnesses. mounts. brackets. hoses. etc. fit perfectly and look stock. No cutting. bending. or hacking was ever done. The Engine has an Edelbrock Quadrajet. Intake Manifold & Valve covers. The radiator is standard GM. as is the Fan shroud. Fan. Driveline. Power Steering pump. alternator. A/C Compressor. brackets. belts. etc. The rear differential is a stock Jaguar independent suspension. but is out of a newer Series III Jag. so the gearing is perfect for the Chevy Conversion (3. 42). The twin fuel tanks were plumbed together to act as one tank. and the fuel tank switch on the dash has been wired to a quiet electric fuel pump in the trunk. (There is also the stock mechanical engine mounted pump) The front suspension was upgraded with urethane bushings in the A arms & Sway Bar. The shocks are KYB. The car has the stock 4 wheel power disc brakes. power windows & locks. original replacement leather interior. power antenna. newer stereo (AM/FM/CD/USB/AUX. with Ipod & earphone jack in console compartment to connect Ipod. phone. etc. to stereo. The paint is PPG Basecoat/Clearcoat with Epoxy Primer underneath. Color is a 1992 Camaro Dark Teal Blue Metallic. The car isn't quite as "blue". as my pictures make it. It has a little more Teal to it - not green. It is code 37. you can google that paint code for a '92 Camaro and look at the colors there. A Series III grill (1979 - 1982 was installed as the vertical grill fins looked much better than the horizontal fins in the original Series II grill. The outer headlights are European Spec. as the cars were designed with. They are still stock sealed beam lights. but are larger diameter than the inner lights. Apparently back then. the US had some rule that all the headlights had to be the same size. so the US imported cars had the trim rings for the outer headlights real thick to adapt the larger opening down to the smaller headlights. (You can google 1978 XJ6L images and see how nice the larger lights and newer style grill look). The dash is the correct burled walnut (Actual wood)Tires are Pirelli 215/70/15 with virtually no miles on them. One photo shows the trunk. with the original jack. lug wrench. etc. in the bag strapped to the LH side. These cars are known to have rust issues - this car has absolutely none & never did. The car has never spent a night outside since 1986 & my Eastern Oregon Climate is dry (almost same average rainfall as Las Vegas). not like western Oregon that get s lots of rain. The car came from Southern California before me. The title does state "Previous Damage California". as when I bought it. it did have damage to the left front fender & left front bumper/headlight area. When I drove it to DMV to have the VIN checked to title it (DMV has to visually see VIN when the car is from out of state. the DMV agent insisted on putting that on the title. The car was originally brown. but was stripped & door jambs. trunk. etc. leave no trace of original color. Everything works as it is supposed to. The car has no issues. It runs & drives very well. It has not been detailed. just washed & waxed. not even vacuumed - how you see the car is how it has been kept for years. Pick up or shipping is buyers responsibility. but I will assist. I have a good friend locally. who has shipped several street rods. that will assist me.
