Hi guys have access to series II jag, no motor or gearbox. Are the front and rear ends worth puttin aside...
I know nothing bout jag bits as both my current jalopies run holden front ends, and leaf rears..........K.I.S.S. principal
Would jag bits be ok for a willys chassis (maybe one day) and what sort of power can you put through em,
Finally what sort of rods are they generally under that will give me an idea of widths.

The guy wants $500 for the car and its only 50K's down the track... Haven't seen it as yet.

I bought an XJ6 several months ago for a similar price, was going to fit front & back under my 48 p/van but decided on just fitting the front as the back has the conventional springs.

Having owned several XJ6's and modified them by putting both chev and ford windsors motors in them. They are a fantastic car to drive. In the early 1980's I put a worked 327 chev in one after reading a magazine article, wound this missile out to warp 9, it was still going faster, but I chickened out. (common sense clicked in)
Never seen a speedo show zero while you are moving. The only sensation of speed was the blurred landscape going past and the sound of high revs from the motor. The car sat on the road like it was doing 100kph.

What I like about the jag front & rear is they are complete units, there is no stuffing around with major mods to make them fit.

Mate of mine had one with a 350, too cool with all that woodgrain and leather, and a B&M; ratchet shifter smack in the middle!

The Jag suspension can handle a fair bit of weight too as the XJ6/12 are pretty heavy, so no problem using them under a fat fender car or probably even a C20/F100 type vehicle.

Going price for a Jag rear end is $400 complete, front end is about $300.
So at $500, your ahead. Like money in the bank.
I have jag rear and HR front end in 34 Chev master sedan.
