Sellers comment:
This car is a daily driver. It is solid but needs cosmetics. The best way for me to describe this car is by catagory for which I will go through each part of the vehicle. The body: No visible rust as this is an older repaint in pearl white which still shines but is starting to show its age. The only area of concern is that on both doors there is minor bubbling along the bottom edge. However, there is no evidence of rust on the bottom of the doors only on the exterior skin. This has not gotten worse since I got the car because New Mexico is so very dry and the car is always garaged. I can't guess what is under the paint but believe that the bottom of the nose and tail have some filler although when I look from inside the panels I don't see or feel any dents or rust. The car was originally pearl blue which can only be seen in the spare tire wheel well. It was a very throrough paint job and well done in its day. The spare tire area has no rust at all. The wheel wells have no rust at all. In fact, all the typcial rust areas for this car are very clean. The floor pans are solid with only a pencil sized hole starting on the passenger side upper left foot space and this is VERY minor. You will not be buying any floor pans soon! The bonnet is solid and straight and all doors and latches close solid. All chrome trim is present with the only part missing from this car being the floor carpets. The seats both have tears with the backs being nice and supple and untorn. The rear storage area covers are nice and the headliner is intact. The wood steering wheel is very nice. The car is a looker - I love it in the white paint scheme, in fact, that was a selling point for me. The motor had the typcial blown head gasket when I bought it. I had the entire head rebuilt at that time along with a new exhaust system put in. When the heads were off the rest of the motor appeared good enough not to justify a rebuild. It does not burn oil but has the typical leaks - about a tables**** on the garage floor every week. The car runs strong and pulls through all gears even at our high altitude very well. It loves warmer weather as it takes a while to crank over in the cold. When it is warm it fires right up. The carbs have new diaphrams in them and opperate smoothly. I had a new clutch put only because the original was slightly warped. The brakes work fine but were next on my list of things to do only because they seem to fade after a lot of use (either poor pads or master cylinder - I don't know. I drive around a lot with the car and it stops fine otherwise. The tires are michelin redlines which have at least 50% life left. By the way, I don't have the service records for the car, they were lost during my last move so you will have to take my word for it on the work done (see my excellent feedback - no misrepresentation here). The wire wheels are true and still look good with only minor areas of chrome flaking on the hubs. I will include the official Jaguar shop manual with this, a Petronix electronic ignition converter, and a spin on oil fileter adapter all of which has not been installed yet. I hate to sell this car but I can only afford to keep one toy arround and I just bought another car to play with. I will never mis-represent anything and will answer questions to the best of my knowlede. It is an old car and will need upkeep and possible restoration should you wish it to be more than just a driver. This was the last year for this body style before the series 2 came out and the prettiest. By the way, all electronics have worked well - lights, turn signals, wipers, etc... The heater fan is noisy but the engine puts off so much heat I never turn it on. Both radiator cooling fans work and this car can run in 100 degree weather and not over heat. All guages work with the exception of the clock which uses a battery so it has never been tested and the odometer is broken. If I were to guess on the milage it might be aroung 75k based on the good health of the motor. Please email with questions and if you are local and serious about the car feel free to come by and take a look and drive. I know it is nerve racking to buy a car online and you never know what you are gettingsince pictures always look better, just trust me that the car is otherwise solid and in driving condition.

Vehicle Condition
A very pretty car with a lot of patina that you can drive with today and would make an exceptional start to a full restoration.
