From eBay listing:
|“car has various flaws and will need the bonnet repairing.”|
Jaguar Etype 2+2 with a small block ford V8. The conversion was done by a professional and its shows. The car runs drives and stops without any issues. It is FAST! with the lightweight of the type and the V8 power it will put you back in your seat and it handles and corners like and Etype. I purchased the car with the damage you see and had plans to fix or replace the bonnet but i just don’t have the time or space. The previous owner was elderly and drove the front of the car into a piece of machinery at a low speed. The bonnet and bonnet carrier were damaged.
I will mount the bonnet on the car for transport but i have been using it without. This is a project car and is being sold AS-IS it needs finishing off but is a great start to an entry level Etype.
