An S-Type joins the fold

Postby nrandlexj40 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 2:12 pm

Well these Jaguars certainly are addictive....

I've just picked up this 'barn-find' 3.0 SE V6 S-Type.
It's been unloved for quite some time spending the past 5 years locked in a barn. The attached image shows it after a good wash down to remove the dust and bird deposits. A quick trip to the MOT station indicates a bit of welding is needed underneath along with a number of new brake pipes.

I'm currently restoring another barn find (actually from the same collection) - a 1996 XK8 Coupe so the S-Type will be next in the queue once I can get the XK8 on the road.....

Watch this space - there is plenty of work ahead, so I'm sure I'll be asking for help along the way !
