Detail by owner
1970 Jaguar XJ has been fully gone through and is currently a daily driver. This is a classy car with all the amenities and comfort of a newer car and turns heads everywhere it goes. The car drives straight, rides smooth and begs to be driven on the highway.
Body: Body is in very nice shape and rust free. It has been repainted in the original signal red color code. All the panels line up and gaps are even. The rear windshield seal has been replaced and the new windshield is included with the sale of the car (not installed). It doesn't leak but should be replaced in the near future. All the chrome and trim is in very nice condition.
Brakes: All of the brakes have been rebuilt and/or replaced. Extensive amount of work has gone into this car. The power brake booster was rebuilt, a new master cylinder was installed as well as all four brake calipers were rebuilt within the last year. New rotors and pads all the way around as well as new front and rear brake hoses.
Drivetrain: The car sports a healthy Chevy 350 cu in. mated to a Turbo 350 automatic transmission. New Holley 390cfm carburetor. Very reliable, easy to maintain and plenty of power. The speedometer cable is not hooked up but I believe there are adapter kits to go from the Jaguar speedo to the Chevy transmission. The drive shaft and half shafts all have new u-joints. New electric fan has been installed.
Suspension: The suspension is solid and doesn't squeak or make any unusual noises. Several bushings have been replaced recently.
Interior: The interior is presentable but could use some attention. The upper headliner surrounding trim pieces have been reupholstered in black. The driver seat is still very comfortable but the bottom straps for the passenger seat are worn and it sags in the middle. All of the power windows operate. All of the dash instrumentation panel lights work.
