Hi Malcolm....XJ6 is used as a doner car for engine/ suspension /diff/brakes etc...chassis is tubular from Realm and body glass fibre....lots of options for making it to your own spec....note on this one the carbs have been converted to throttle bodies and its a fuel injected 4.2...Steve

Oh yes......considering that only 53 real ones were built and would cost £5m+ to purchase then a replica is the only way to go for most who want one......you could build for under £30k completed....Steve

Steve, do you mean you haven’t got a spare £5million lying around then :lol:
It’ll be good to see your car when it’s on the road. Good luck with getting it finished.

Cheers
