Classic Jaguar looks with modern GM reliability and performance. It can be serviced by anyone capable of working on a Chevy. Built by American Classics in Brazil from scratch using all new parts. $20,000 more was spent improving the car and getting it dialed in. Only 155 miles since finished.
EXTERIOR: Beautiful looks, very true to the original. The details will fool most people. Very high quality fit and finishes. It is a Kevlar body, it's straight and the gaps are precise. Doors shut solid, it has sturdy stainless hinges. The Ivory paint is pristine. It is polished to a smooth, high gloss finish. I did not see any flaw. Up front it has the aluminum bumperettes, original style Lucas fog lamps and headlights. It even has the Jaguar ornament and correct mirrors on each fender. It has aluminum windshield frame with new laminated glass. In back it has the pop up gas cap, aluminum tail lights and bumperettes. Keeping it real is a set of genuine knock off spinner wire wheels. They are new 16x6 Dayton's with new radial white wall tires.
INTERIOR: I am very impressed with the interior. There's nothing cheap about it. Glove soft leather upholstery on the seats, door panels and cushion. Authentic designed seat is very comfortable. I'm 6 foot tall and fit with no issues. Real wood grain dash with all new instruments. All new wiring, it has LED interior lights. The beautiful four spoke aluminum steering wheel with a polished wood rim is mounted on a tilt column. It has premium carpets, carefully cut with sewn bound edges. Coco mats too. Considerable effort was made install ing door handles instead of a pull strap. There is a Lokar floor shifter and a digital indicator on the dash.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: New GM crate 350 motor offers maximum reliability. Dressed with aluminum Jaguar valve covers. New serpentine belt and pulleys. New aluminum radiator keeps it running cool. New wiring. It features power steering and brakes. It is a very tidy and proper looking motor compartment. The firewall is slick like the exterior.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very neatly lined with the same carpet used in the car. It has bound edges, even the bottom of the trunk lid is carpeted. It also has chrome hinges, a matching tool pouch and new weather strip.
UNDERSIDE: It has a very substantial square tube chassis. I was also surprised to see front and rear independent suspension. Up front it has new rack & pinion steering system by Vintage Steering. All new front suspension with coil over adjustable shocks, tubular control arms with adjustable camber and caster. Laser cut and Mig welded spindles and wheel adapters. In back it also has coil over adjustable shocks and tubular control arms. All new brake system with disc at all four wheels. All new fuel system. Full dual exhaust system both exit next to each other on the driver side. Looking up at the motor it is clean, it has a new high torque starter. It has 200R-4 overdrive automatic by Monster Transmissions. In back it has an aluminum center section with 3.27 gears.
This Jaguar offers very low maintenance enjoyment. I am very intrigued by this car. I've driven just about every type of car there is and this one sounds like fun. You will turn heads, the quality will make you feel proud and the reliability will set your mind at ease. Many, many smiles per hour!
