Well, since you asked...

First thing I'd do is to invest in at least an acceptable paint job. You'll be lucky to get half of your investment back if the car is not presentable.

With all of the expensive performance mods, the car should be a turn-key rocket ship for the prospective buyer to test drive. If I heard "Well, it still needs a....", I'd walk away laughing.

As far as return on your investment, coupes seem to be bringing out some collector car money. I'd have gone for restoration versus modification. I think you build a car like yours because you want one, and have to accept the possibility that no one else may share your goals. Best of luck with it.

I like some of the modifications you made, though my Jags are 95% original. That car must befast.

There is a guy in Finland who also did a XJ-12-C with lots of modifications, and he even adapted a XJ-40 rear cage in a MK-1. He's an engineer so he can get away with it.

check his work here: http://jaguar.fiboy.com/

There are all types out there so I would not bother making any excuses for the work you have done. Purists are in the minority.We all modify cars one way or another. It's your car and you can put two engines in it if you like.

tell you what: register at Jag-Lovers and place pictures of your car showing the modifications you've made, but don't hint at the selling it, otherwise you get reprimanded because no selling or hints of selling are allowed in the XJ forum over there. Once you got that done, then place a free Ad offering your car in JAGADS, putting a clickable link to the post you made in the ad, so they can see the pics.

You mightget a mix of responses, there's a good number of owners there who lump their XJ, (they call them Lumps), converting to GM transmissions and engines, so you're not alone.

good luck, I'm sure you'll find a buyer. How much are you asking?

Welcome quack!

Where are the pics of it at? You should add photos to your picture gallery on here so everyone can look at it.

One thing to keep in mind...

Sounds like you have a lot of work to do before you try to sell this beast.

yeahh, like 4 hours worth of work to pull the trailer back out and out of the way, pull the car back, wash it, take pictures, push the trailer back in before the car, then push the car back in after the trailer.If the neighbor helps, that's less work.
