The wooden veneered dash is gorgeous. The headliner is new. The wire wheels are perfect, as is the chrome. Mechanically the car has been fully sorted.

    Buyer beware. Despite the flowery prose the photos hint at an unprofessional restoration by people who are unfamiliar with Jaguars. Example: crankcase breather cover is on backwards and missing corrugated vent tube. Sloppy boot wiring hanging haphazardly, and no sheet metal protective shroud on the gas tank filler line. If that's visible in the 1st minute of perusing the photos, imagine what's hidden deeper under that black paint!
