Classic Jaguar looks with modern GM reliability and performance. It
can be serviced by anyone capable of working on a Chevy. Built by
American Classics in Brazil from scratch using all new parts.
$20,000 more was spent improving the car and getting it dialed in.
Only 155 miles since finished.
EXTERIOR: Beautiful looks, very true to the original. The details
will fool most people. Very high quality fit and finishes. It is a
Kevlar body, it's straight and the gaps are precise. Doors shut
solid, it has sturdy stainless hinges. The Ivory paint is pristine.
It is polished to a smooth, high gloss finish. I did not see any
flaw. Up front it has the aluminum bumperettes, original style
Lucas fog lamps and headlights. It even has the Jaguar ornament and
correct mirrors on each fender. It has aluminum windshield frame
with new laminated glass. In back it has the pop up gas cap,
aluminum tail lights and bumperettes. Keeping it real is a set of
genuine knock off spinner wire wheels. They are new 16x6 Dayton's
with new radial white wall tires.
INTERIOR: I am very impressed with the interior. There's nothing
cheap about it. Glove soft leather upholstery on the seats, door
panels and cushion. Authentic designed seat is very comfortable.
I'm 6 foot tall and fit with no issues. Real wood grain dash with
all new instruments. All new wiring, it has LED interior lights.
The beautiful four spoke aluminum steering wheel with a polished
wood rim is mounted on a tilt column. It has premium carpets,
carefully cut with sewn bound edges. Coco mats too. Considerable
effort was made install ing door handles instead of a pull strap.
There is a Lokar floor shifter and a digital indicator on the

cool. New wiring. It features power steering and brakes. It is a
very tidy and proper looking motor compartment. The firewall is

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very neatly lined with the same carpet used in
the car. It has bound edges, even the bottom of the trunk lid is
carpeted. It also has chrome hinges, a matching tool pouch and new
UNDERSIDE: It has a very substantial square tube chassis. I was
also surprised to see front and rear independent suspension. Up
front it has new rack & pinion steering system by Vintage Steering.
All new front suspension with coil over adjustable shocks, tubular

welded spindles and wheel adapters. In back it also has coil over

This Jaguar offers very low maintenance enjoyment. I am very
intrigued by this car. I've driven just about every type of car
there is and this one sounds like fun. You will turn heads, the
quality will make you feel proud and the reliability will set your
mind at ease. Many, many smiles per hour!
