Found this on the Miles Classic Jaguar website. Strange thing is that it has quite big wheels and low profile tyres that I normally poo-poo. But it looks good with them.

I’m normally a sucker for a big wheel but these cars really were virtually perfect out of the box imho. Not even sure about the removal of the vinyl roof.

this ^^^ There just seems something 'off' about the wheel and since I like the design it has to be the size

Just magnificent. I think I'd want it in a different colour, but I'm being overly fussy there.

I love it, particularly the wheels: it would be great if it could have an updated Jaguar engine, but appreciate that puts the costs & complexity through the roof.

I won't quote the picture again but that XJC is my kind of thing despite not even being a massive fan of Jags, especially older ones.

Like yourself Jags have never been or done anything for me (despite my dad owning some good ones) but that, and as Jimi says, maybe a darker colour, to me (my opinion of course) its the perfect decently modified car!

That XJC looks suspiciously like the one that Ian Callum did for himself. If so it is stunning in the metal.

I believe that is Ian Callum's car (restored by Miles)

Granted, a few unusual choices - but thats what a retro-mod project is all about.
