If you are going to V8 swap an old Jaguar, you might as well start with a pretty example (instead of the typical buckets you see around) and this long-wheelbase Series 2 XJ qualifies as pretty. Even with the USA federally mandated rubber bumper extensions, this looks good, probably because Jag left the chrome bumpers in place, but also because someone took care of it. Find this 1976 Jaguar XJ6L offered for $15,000 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
