Main thing, though, is the body shell, because Jaguars in the 70s were not well built at all in this area, and are very prone to rust. Other things likely to need attention are brakes, and suspension ball joints, and springs and shocks. Look for evidence of maintenance and repairs done.

There are fewer examples of them than the more common HE versions and they have some distinct differences that set them apart visibly and mechanically. If it's an unmolested, rust-free example, that may be a fair price. Rust is the biggest issue. Find all posts by MustangSix.

If nothing much, this is what you will have to do, as a minimum, to get the car as a reliable and good driver: Change all shocks Change all rubber bushes, ball joints, and rubber blocks throughout the suspension and steering of the car, front and back Clean up as many loom connections and earths as you can find Probably update the ignition spark box as the OPUS system on the car is bound to be going home REOPUS is the most popular over here Change all oils and filters Renew tyres Fix aircon, maybe Clean up radiator fins and remove debris between the radiator stacks Check and renew brake calipers and brake pads as required.
