The British Racing Green paint has been done within the last 5 or so years and has a stunning shine and depth to it. There are only a few small paint issues, small chip in the paint on the driver side hood line against the cowl, ne small scratch in the paint on the lower passenger and driver door edge and two small chips in the rear hatch edge. The body is incredibly straight and damage and rust free. The shut lines are very nice and pretty even. All of the chrome is very nice and shows only minimal age. The interior has been completely re-done in correct Jaguar leather and carpets and shows beautifully. The dash has also been removed and re-done with correct materials (correct under dash boards are with the car). All of the trim, ubber and switch gear are either new or in excellent condition.

It shifts beautifully through all of the gears and does not slip or grind. The gearbox is nice and strong and the clutch is solid without any signs of slipping. The brakes have a good strong feel to them and free from any fade. The suspension and steering are all tight and free from any known issues. The car has new tires as of a few months ago and the brakes and suspension appear to have been done recently. All of the electrical equipment appears to be operating as designed including all of the instrumentation, ights, orn, ipers and cooling fans. The wire wheels have also been re-plated within the last few years and look beautiful. The engine stays cool at cruising speeds and in stop and go traffic; there are no over-heating issues with the car. The undercarriage is very nice and pretty original, ree from any rust or damage.
