Cute, rare, british roadster.  It's a real head turner and if you don't want attention this isn't the car for you.  Was my daily driver until the transmission started getting hard to shift.  I removed the transmission to find two synchros were out of it.  The parts are about $65 to repair it (from Victoria British).  Just haven't gotten around to putting them in and have decided I'd rather sell for a hot rod project that my whole family can enjoy.  


Good:
Floor pans have been replaced
Rear deck area and trunk are SOLID
Minimal rust
Engine runs excellent!  Only 47,000 ORIGINAL miles
Doesn't burn oil
Little leaks (typical british car amount!) 
Would be an EXCELLENT restoration or father/son project. 

Bad:
The body isn't perfect, it has had body work done in the past, not the best paint job.  (see pics) 
Transmission will need the synchros put in.
No carpet
I have a top for it, but it's not good.
Passenger side window is broken. 
My three year old broke the tail light lens. 


I love this car and appreciate it's rarity.  I would really like it to go to someone who not only appreciates it the way that I do (or more!) but has the time to give it the attention it deserves.  


The title is clear and in my name.  Back then import cars were titled in the year they were sold and not the year they were built, so the title says it's a 64, but com # shows it's a 63.

Jaguar F Type V6 S vs Triumph Street Triple R in open-air track attack

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 19:45:00 EST

Typically, these track battle videos pair up car against car or, in more disparate circumstances, car versus crossover, as we saw the other day. While the outcome of that battle was quite predictable, what'll happen when an equally fetching (and fast) four-wheeler is put up against one of the icons of the two-wheeled world? Evo just had to find out.
Matching up a Jaguar F-Type V6 S Convertible against a Triumph Street Triple R is at least more of an even fight than the last battle between the Porsche Cayman GTS and Macan Turbo. The Triumph has a 675-cc engine to work with, and is very light. Meanwhile, the Jag has a thumping 380-horsepower, 3.0-liter, supercharged V6 to haul about it's considerably heftier heft. Who will come out on top?
You'll need to watch the full video to find out.
