I own a '75 xj6 with a non running carbed Chevy and a '76 parts car. At one point I had 5 sedans at the estate at the same time. Picked and switched all the good parts, shipped and sold and scraped the rest.
Bought a few parts from Andrew and threw them into the pile.
I’ve got the 7" headlight kit and a few of the earlier thin chrome bumpers (front/back) A nice rear seat from a series III Vanden Plas I think. I remember them being like bucket seats for the back. I remember pulling them out at the junkyard and trying to put them into a series II at that same yard. They didn’t quite fit but with some tear down and mod-ing their structure a bit they will look factory. I’m a pretty handy guy!
The front seats will be Jaguar and electric but I forget where they came from, I seem to recall out of an xj-40? I’ve quite a bit of welding / fab-ing equipment and not afraid to use it, ha ha ha.
Another of my trophies from my once busy chop-shop style backyard is a couple of series I steering wheels, much nicer than the II that came with my car, so that’s going to be part of the mix.
And some door panels that will let me piece together my own ‘best of interior’ I remember the ‘grab handles’ looked real nice and when everything is all stitched up in the same colored material it will look very nice.
I took the complete front & rear (2.88 ) suspensions from a III and have already installed them.
So at this point they are in southern California and will be heading north in the next month or 2.
I’m looking forward to getting back into this hobby with both feet.
I truly love these cars and am continually amazed they can be had for some 2-8 thousand. Then having a Chevy power them I’d think they’d be worth twice the price.
So give me a while (won’t be another 100 years) and I’ll be posting Progress Reports and Questions.
