Default Jag engines in other makes ???

I've seen numerous HOTRODS with 12's and 6's, even pics of an early Mustang with a transplanted V12, however few if any of the newer 8's. Please show any pics you may have of decent V8 Jag engine transplants. I would love to see an XKR mill in an early Camaro or T/A.
Cheers

I haven't heard of this being done. This may be blasphemy, but I don't blame people for not choosing a Jaguar engine , not when the world is full of relatively cheap and plentiful American V8s.

This isn't quite the same, but Beacham Jaguar do some resto-mods to Mk II, E-Types, and XK-150 with later model V8s and interiors. They are seriously beautiful.

Current Beacham Jaguars

I would love a Beacham Mk II, I'd park it next to my imaginary Eagle Speedster (resto-modded E-type, see here: Eagle Speedster / Home)

The Jaguar dealer in my area had a 33 Ford in Jaguar Racing Green with an XKR engine.

Very nice. Not my type of car, but it looks good.

Thanks carelm, exactly the type of thing I was looking for.
Also, as to avt007's first reply, I'm definitely on your side as to keeping
pristine American iron intact, but for donor vehicles without original mills that are to be rodded anyways, its nice to see some creativity. I love early rods with nailhead Buicks, big Caddy mills, etc. Someone even professionally stuffed a V12 Ferrari into a '77 Jeep. Interesting to say the least.
Hopefully more will chime in with pics
Cheers

Haven't started it yet but I'm eventually moving the driveline and interior from my '92 VDP (rear-ended by a Towncar) into my '36 Cord. The Cord was converted to rear drive in '56 with a 292 Y block so the 4.0 six should fit nicely.

Talking

This perhaps will be a little left field for a lot of folks - I joined a Scottish Fire Dept. (Glasgow Fire Service) in 1972 and some of the apparatus they ran were light-weight Dennis fire trucks powered by Jaguar straight-sixes.

After every fire call on return to the fire house we had to change the spark plugs as they were set to run rich and sooted the plugs up. If memory serves me correctly we got something like 6 mpg (Imperial).

I wish i had a pic of it. There was an old Ford T Bucket hot rod at the local car shows with a Jaguar V12 and four webers. He had custom headers that came horizontally outwards, 90 degrees down, then into sidepipes. Certainly sounded very different than all the other hot rods too. It was and odd shade of purple and had black vinyl upholstery for any Maryland folks out there. I haven't seen it in about 4 years.
