Just took the car on vacation last week, its first long trip for probably 25 years, 1400km / 850 miles and overall very good results. A trouble free trip, 19mpg (16US). Cruising very comfortably at 2500rpm/120kph.
Compared to a modern there’s obviously more wind noise but I’d like to get that down. Furflex is in pretty poor condition, does anybody know if replacing that will make any noise difference? Actual door seals look original, 50 years old but don’t leak and seem to seal all round, if a little hard. Quarter light rubbers quite degraded but no leaks.
I realise I won’t get it to modern standards but an improvement would be nice. I was given a ride in what must be one of the best XJ12C’s recently (yours for £50k/$65k) and to be honest mine isn’t much different to those wind noise levels so it may just be that they’re all like that.
