Things to know about theMechanicson this Automobile:The Car Starts up and runs. When it starts it has a lot of valve train engine noise coming from the top end of the engine. It idles good with just a slight hesitation in the throttle response. Also the oilpressure gage is reading low oil pressure.The Car rides smooth. It goes threw the gears smoothly & also down shifts well when under power. The Motor has no smoke coming from theexhaust when the car is running. Also We found that thiscar likes to leak oil. I was told that this is normal for Jaguar's and if it's not leaking oil then its's more then likely out of oil. The Gages all seem to work correctly. TheFront Grill has a broken spot in it and it's loss. The Battery Needs to be replaced as for we use a battery charger to start the car.
The Car drives & rides.The car goes straight when I let go of the steering wheel. When I apply the brakes the car stops straight anddoesn't pull left or right. I heard no grinding orsqueaking noises from the brakes. The Tires on the car look good but we recommend that they be replaced if you plan on driving the car regularly or on a long road trips. The Power Convertible Top:Is Not Working as it should. On the motorthere is a switch that you can turn so you canmanuallyraise and lower the top. I found no tears to the outside of the blackconvertibletop or theconvertibletop cover on the outside. The inside headliner has a circle size tear the size of a base ball that is missing on the inside of the head liner.
Radio.Has a lock on it. I have a card with a code but was unable to get the radio to work.
The Body, Paint & Interior Seats:The paint on this car is Black in Color. It has some old paint over spray on the car. The paint on this Car looks to beoriginalwith no fading to the color.

With all of this being said this Automobile is a project car and is in need of having work done to it before putting the key in theignition and driving. It is in Fair Used Running Condition. Note: like I said in thedescriptionthe motor runs but it hasinternalengine noise that may require the removal and rebuilding of this engine. In need of a new owner that wants to invest a little time and love into thisbeautiful car.
