MAJOR RESTORATION JUST FINISHED. MOT'S WITH THE MOTOR CAR SHOW IT TO HAS COVERED ONLY 15000 MIILES SINCE 1993. THE CURRENT ODOMETER READS 48000 MILES. THE CAR HAS BEEN OWNED BY THE SAME GENTLEMAN SINCE 1999, HAVING BEEN EXTENSIVELY RESTORED PRIOR TO THAT DATE. WHILST IN YORK IT HAS HAD SERVICES AT OUR LOCAL JAGUAR MAIN AGENT!! 

HAVING PERSONALLY KNOWN THE CAR FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS, I KNEW IT TO BE A REMARKABLY WELL RESTORED SHELL. THE CAR WAS CAREFULLY RESPRAYED 2 YEARS AGO IN A LOCAL SPECIALIST BODY SHOP. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY IN 2017 TO BUY THE CAR. WE SET TO IN MY WORKSHOPS TO DO A MAJOR OVERHAUL, WHICH INCLUDED NEW RADIATOR, HEATER MOTOR  ALL NEW SILICONE COOLING HOSES, SUSPENSION OVERHAUL FRONT AND REAR, COMPLETE NEW BRAKING SYSTEM, INCLUDING ALL PIPES , HOSES, SERVO'S AND CYLINDERS WITH NEW COOPERCRAFT CALIPERS WITH VENTED DISCS, NEW REAR CALIPERS AND PIPE WORK. FULLY OVERHAULED LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL. THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION WAS REMOVED. THE ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY REBUILT BY A WELL RESPECTED JAGUAR ENGINE BUILDER   BEING FULLY BALANCED, REBORED AND NEW PISTONS, TIMING CHAINS, TENSIONERS AND HARMONIC BALANCER. CRANK SHAFT CONVERTED TO REAR LIP SEAL. CYLINDER HEAD AND CARBURETTORS FULLY OVERHAULED    TRANSMISSION CHECKED AND OVERHAULED WHERE NECESSARY. THE ORIGINAL BLACK INTERIOR WAS BEGINNING TO SHOW IT'S AGE AND WAS RETRIMMED IN BEIGE BY THE TRIM CENTRE AT NUNEATON.

ALL NEW WIRE WHEELS AND TYRES WERE FITTED. INSTRUMENTS OVERHAULED WHERE NECESSARY. THE HERITAGE CERTIFICATE SHOWS THE BODY NUMBER AND ENGINE NUMBER TO BE ORIGINAL, THOUGH WHEN THE BODY WAS RESTORED WE HAVE TO ASSUME THE BONNET TO HAVE BEEN REPLACED. 

THE CAR, ALBEIT STILL RUNNING IN, DRIVES BEAUTIFULLY WITH A LOVELY SMOOTH TIGHT FEEL.
