Barn Found: 1971 Jaguar XKE Type III V12

The Jaguar E-Type is the classic that needs little introduction to the automotive world, however I feel that I need to bring one thing up before we go any further.  You might want to shove a carburetor fed small block chevy into the engine bay, but don’t do it.  You wouldn’t roll up a cigarette made from Earl Grey tea, would you?  Find this 1971 Jaguar XKE Type III V12 offered for $12,500 in Palmer, AK via craigslist.  Tip from Zach Z.

This thing is a barn find and will need considerable help, BUT it does have a glorious Jaguar V12 and a low asking price.   See a better waste of your nights/weekends for the foreseeable future?
