    Sellers comment:
    This Jag is ready for the road. It has been inspected by Jaguar of Denver and every repair needed to make it a safe and dependable driver was performed by them. Here is a list of the parts installed: new spark plugs, new fuel tanks, new fuel sender, new fuel filter, new fuel filler hose, new gaskets in fuel system, and new choke cable. Also performed at that time was a rebuild of all three carbeurators and a compression check of the engine (all six cylinders consistantly showed 125 psi).

    Additional items that have also been repaired/added within the last year have been a rebuilt starter, the ignition switch has been replaced and although the pictures do not show them, the two chrome strips on each side of the windshield were purchased new and have been added since the pictures were taken. The interior is in excellent condition after the headliner, seats and sun visors were reupholstered along with a the shifter boot. It also has a brand new Kenwood stereo/CD player and four new speakers installed.

    The glass is all in perfect condition. The body chrome and the five original spoked chrome rims I would rate a 95%. (Yes, even the spare is spoked and chrome.)

    The car exterior has a few door dinks and a couple of minor chips in the paint, but very few. There is a slightly darker paint on the passenger door from a repair of some sort in its past. These things are hardly noticible but I list them as I don't want there to be any misrepresentations what-so-ever.

    The only thing known not to work is the original clock.

    This car has now been disassembledand blasted. Overall it is in fair condition and will get new floors, inner and outer sills, rear pan, and quarter panels. Engine, hydraulics, gearbox and front suspension have been rebuilt.

    How about filling in the rest of the numbers (engine, gearbox, and body numbers) off of the data plate please?

    II sold this car in late 2011. Was going through some old stuff and found the Heritage Trust for this car. If you want it, I will happily send it to you.

    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
