This is a real car with the bona fide patina of an aged wine, not some fancy-schmancy restoration or a slick re-do. It is entirely original except for an updated digital ignition and a now mature 1980 paint job by Brian Dowling, who was New York’s pre-emininent Jaguar craftsman. The manual four speed transmission will let you sprint off the start if you want and the air conditioning still works blowing cold on muggy summer days. It includes power steering, power brakes and a rare black factory hardtop and standard soft top.  The window of the soft top needs a new plastic window.  My father in law never replaced it since he only drives it when it’s sunny.  But you might want to.  There is the original Dunlop spare tire. But it needs to be replaced.  The carburetors were completely rebuilt a few years ago.  Better to hear the purr of this cat.  There’s a noticeable scratch near the gas fill cap.  The brakes and calipers are new.
