All major work was completed over two years ago and this has been a regular parade and show car.
I've owned the car for a little over six years. I have recently moved and the car is no longer in a garage. It is under cover. Needs a new home to keep it in great condition.
I have a number of misc parts from my search during restoration. Including extra bumpers, bumper guards, tire rings, mirrors, trim, piston, misc lens and small parts. This car has been cared for with a great deal of love and respect. I'm the second owner. I have all parts receipts and maintenance records. Before and after detailed photos, vintage dealership brochure, manual, and lots more.

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.
