1979 Jaguar XJ12

Jaguar 1979 XJ12 I bought three years ago was going to swap in a small block chevy and put a new 1974 jaguar front clip on it. Changed my mind later since the engine only had 50-K miles and chevy jags are a dime a dozen. I removed the fuel injection and was going to use carb set up from a 1974 jag, i have all the parts. I will not have the time to work on it for a number of more years and we plan on moving. Notes.
1. Car has been in a low speed front end accident was like that when I bought it, I have a full front end off a 1974 that goes with it. However the existing I think could be fixed except for maybe the hood. 2. Car has newer interior, windows worked before I put it up. Person I bought it from said both gas tanks worked. Put stabil in before I put in my garage 3. Pretty rust free for a jaguar the floors are solid as well as the underneath. 4. Ran and started when i got it however the accident slightly damaged the radiator had a hole. 5. One time had and small engine fire the hood insulation is charred typical for a jag. The existing wiring harness for the fuel injection is toast. Typical long-term heat damage brittle wires. 6. The engine has 50-K ran pretty good for the brief time I ran it. I did reseal the valve covers and change the plugs. 7. I stripped the engine, unhooked the engine mounts, unhooked exhaust, 8. No frame damage that I can see doors open fine have 1974 front clip and all parts needed for front 9. I have a full carb set-up including the ignition system, two raditators one is good, and rad hose connection for carbs same linkage 10. Also includes a set set of factory rims extra from the 1974 only used two years in excellent condition. 11. Car was painted at some point looks pretty good. 12. I have title never registered it, I will if someone wants it for more than parts,. LAST BUYER DID NOT FOLLOW THROUGH>>>>> Getting the 12 cylinder running would be quite the project however would be pretty unique when done. If not a chevy swap or a parts car. Pickup only will need a large trailer I have a boatload of parts..
