Looking for a coupe to Lump

I have a friend who is looking for a XJ-6/12C with straight body and
bad engine or trans to Lump. He has a fresh engine and trans he built
to put in something else and decided to go a different route with that
(it's a pickup and it's getting a diesel.)

If the car is still with its original engine and trans he will pickle
them and put them safely away for restoration. If they are missing that
is OK too as long as the body has no major rust or significant damage
history.

No wrecks, no junkers, no anti-lump flames. If you have a vehicle for
consideration please send me a short email.

Why ever not? What on earth do you expect if you post something like
that here. Most of us find the thought of vandalising Jaguars rather
unpleasant.

Do computer keyboards in England lack the letter "Z"? Else, why do you
vandalize "vandalize"?? ;-)

The fact is that:

1. You can always put it back the way it was.

2. The various American V8s make more power with less weight than the
venerable but heavy XJ six or the cantankerous V12.

3. The XJ six comes with, in US spec cars, an American made but
worthless three speed Borg Warner transmission. Lumping gives you the
current four speed automatic.

4. Britons put things in Jaguars that are just as dubious, such as
Perkins and Gardner diesels in the old days, and Nissan diesels today.
(Though the Gardner was such a pretty engine....)

5. Why don't you Brits do something useful like manufacture a 4 valve
head for the XJ, or better yet squeeze Ford UK's nuts until they do
right with the Aston Martin and reissue the Newport Pagnall 6-the
engine the XJ should have been. This business of using two Taurus
blocks for a V12 is ridiculous.

Our Keyboards have a full complement and being English, we speak and write
English.

Feel free to bastardiSe our Language as you wish but don't berate us for
spelling correctly...:-)

Thanks Alan, but I would ignore anyone who trumpets their ignorance in
this manner. (Not sure he even knows the correct American spelling
<g>.)

"i-g-n-o-r-a-n-c-e"? You appear to have misspelt "xenophobia", David.

I am also an American, but if you can get one with a running engine, why put
one of the US's gas-sucking pigs into a classic car? BTW, if either of the
previous Americans, Ludwig and Betts had any appreciation for the Jag, they
would understand British spelling and accept it. He does have a point with
placing the Aston Martin in a Jag however. Own a 68 XKE-12 and a 03 x-type
2.5. Keep it up-have gotten much good advise in this group. Check how many
Americans catch my seplling. Paul

Oops! When did I change nationality and lose my appreciation of
Jaguars? It appears to have happened without my even noticing. Scary
stuff.
