The car rolls and steers, but the engine will not turn-over; however, I do have an additional XK engine of the same vintage that I will include with the sale .I have not had the car running, so I do not know the condition of the transmission; however, it does static shift through all the gears. The shock absorber on the right rear is missing. I have photographed all the spare parts that go with the car. If you have questions please contact me through ebay messages.
