Yes, I'm seen them over here on an FF.. but you can't beat a Chrome Rostyle.. Not really a lover of the Alloy-Rostyle Design on the Jensen myselfImage

You are right Grant
They are on Keith's FF
17" alloys quite expensive but very nice

Styling aside, the bodywork on the XJ-C looks like it has been done by a school kid. The front panels don't fit, especially the bonnet gap around the headlights. The beautiful pearl paint highlights this, and doors wings and bonnet look different shades presumably because of poor alignment. The retrim looks really sub par. The rear seat backrests and leather fit in particular.

I won't ask where the gorgeous straight six with the Le Mans winning twin cam Jaguar Hemi head and manual box that some of these had is, or was it once the V12 which also was a Le Mans winning motor for Jaguar?

What does concern me is, given that the car may be (incorrectly) passed off as not needing an MOT due to age, is the mechanical work up to scratch? They have done some serious work ripping out the D Type style IRS from the XJ-C during the "upgrade".

I am surprised no-one else has picked up on this when complete original but rotten Interceptors and SP's seem to get so much stick as being worthless restoration projects.
