“As part of its restoration, the body was equipped with new rocker panels and repainted in opalescent gunmetal gray,” AutoHunter notes on the Jaguar’s listing.
“New or re-plated chrome can be found on the bumpers, vertically ribbed grille, leaping cat hood ornament, front fender mirrors, badging, and taillight housings.”
Under the hood is a 3.8-liter inline-6 engine with a new alloy radiator with electric cooling fans, new electronic ignition, wiring loom, and a high-output starter. The engine is paired with a General Motors’ automatic transmission featuring overdrive from John’s Cars.
The new tan interior from Aldridge Trimming features front bucket seats and a rear bench.
X-MAT sound deadening insulation was installed and refurbished wood trims the dashboard and the fold-down trays on the back of the front seats. Further upgrades include RetroAir air conditioning, a Bluetooth AM/FM/CD stereo, and a backup camera.
It comes with a clean title in the seller’s name and the sale includes numerous records from the previous and the current owner.
