History Bought lumped with 305 cu inch SBC and GM gearbox. Undergoing full body-off restoration to return to near-original glory but with modern Jaguar running gear - aim is to install a supercharged 4l Jaguar x300 i6 into the engine bay with uprated pulley, no cats and improved induction to generate around 400 bhp and 400 torques. Will obviously need to think about uprating brakes and tyres but want to keep the 60s feel of driving.
Exterior
None, yet. Full bare metal restoration underway

Interior
None, yet. Aiming to preserve original interior so far as possible - so far carpets and headlining looking suspect but might be saved. Seats and switches all fine. Instruments all fine.

In-Car Entertainment
Not needed: Jaguar i6 supercharged engine?

Under the Hood
See above - currently SBC

Suspension
Original IRS and fronts

Wheel and Tire
Currently Borrani wire knockoffs and 185VR15 Michelin XVS (for motorway/touring use) and Jaguar wire knockoffs and 185VR15 Pirelli Cintaurato (for more, er, spirited, driving).
