1994 Jaguar XJ12 Additional Info:

This is a high level installation of a 383 cubic inch small block Chevrolet and 700R4 transmission into a rust free 1994 XJ12 Jaguar. The car is from Montana and the engine and transmission were built here in the Lansing Michigan area. The total cost of the project approached $10,000 in parts. The build was completed in November of 2014 at 94575 miles on the car's odometer. The car now has 100400 miles on the odometer. I have a detailed photo record of the build that I can send you via email if requested. A complete list of the parts installed and modifications made are listed below. This vehicle is a steal at the asking price and is a great vehicle to drive. The engine has a mild cam and compression ratio and runs on regular unleaded. You can easily take this car to a higher performance level if desired. I need to move this car to help pay for my current project. Thanks for the interest.
