Thecar is registeredasa1971; perhaps it was a dealer's demonstrator when new?

A previous owner replaced at least some of the front frame members with ones from a donor car. The engine was also replaced with one I have been told is from a later Jaguar model that used a big valve head.

You will see that the rear of the car has had some of the bright trim removed. That was a personal preference but I will include the original polished strip that goes across the back as well as the very rare chrome finishers that fit on the side of the rear light housings.

I wanted to show more pictures but couldn't work out how to get past the eBay limit of 24 until now. Some people have asked about the original seats so I have included pictures below.
