Flat floor cars were made up until June 1962. You are out of luck I'm afraid. As a donor car it will have a reasonable value, but it will need modifying to put a Jaguar engine and transmission back...

Well, I built it and I live at Le Mans and I assure you that it is an evil-handling car! Stirling topped 120 wit it at Goodwood and I went faster at Montlhery but the tail acts like a pendulum in...

Trouble is I don't think you will be able to get them cheap. These "barn finds" are sometimes fetching more than restored cars but for the life of me I can't understand why. An E-type sold in the UK...

Not mentioned before, but that is a late 3.8 car, having the 4.2 dash. Here is a photo of a 1961 car in the same colours:-

Well, you asked for it so here it comes. Firstly, like any new Jaguar model, it was a prototype. Think of the alloy bodied XK120s and the very early E-types as an example. Jaguar are finding their...

The V12 model is currently somewhat out of favour with the cost of petrol. The engine is virtually unbreakable and will do huge mileages but, and a very big but, has the level of antifreeze been kept...

Profiled cams, Venolia pistons at 9.5:1 compression, big valves and carefully balanced and put together. I had it done 10 years back and I guess today's price would be in the region of 20,000.

Lynx XKSS

OK, I'll kick this thread off. While not a "real" XKSS, this is a full alloy bodied car made by Lynx. In fact it is even rarer than the real car (but not of course the same value!) since I believe...

Is there a spark at the plugs? Ifg not, and if the ballast resistor is still - as in the day - between the two cylinder blocks it is a common fault that they fail. If not, perhaps the coil, but first...

Oh dear oh dear! I know who owns the XKSS and it is certainly a replica, probably a LR RAM in fibreglass. It wears UK plates because it probably can't be registered in Switzerland. The C-type is a...
