‘Barn Find’ Jaguar

I was contacted via the Goodwood GRRC forum regarding this MK2 3.8 Jaguar inherited recently.

The car had only done 22,000 miles from new when it was put away in the late 1970s for some light restoration, Time has taken its toll and as you can see it was buried under a mountain of building materials and took some excavating by the owners.

I put Tom Lenthal of TL Jaguar in touch with the owners and he is now restoring the car so he can take all his young family out together. Six months work should see the shell repaired and painted. Good luck to him!


First view of the car since the late 1970s

22,000 miles and 15 feet since new! Wheels being swapped to allow movement.
