QUOTE (gar @ 26 Aug 2012, 09:17) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>so the only real issue is these Jags are around 50 years old and in need of a bit more maintainance.

The series 1 Jag is one of my all-time favorite cars. And I agree the mechanicals aren't all that
unusual or difficult to work on (although three carbs, and that rear end, an undersized/undervented
cooling system and the distributor location among other things offer a little more challenge than an MGB).
The big issue is that the central tub is made up of 150 separate pieces of sheet metal all spot-welded together.
Once any rust creeps in, they can be a real bear to get right.

Still, worth whatever it takes...lovely, wonderful cars!!
