Very nice. Always fancied one in dark blue.

I wanted a red one but because of what it is I couldn't change the colour as it needs to be original.

 

The next one (if there is a next one) I will change the colour and do this to it https://beacham.co.nz/beacham-mk2/

 

An XJR powered MK2 really appeals to me.

 

Of course I have two mini's and a Triumph Spitfire to do first...

Well i'm afraid the minis and the Spitfire will have to wait as i've bought another MK2 Jag, its a lightweight racing version, no hang on its totally rotten and half of its missing!

 

The front chassis legs have gone (pulled them out by hand after dropping the front subframe), and i'm in the process of replacing.  I'm thinking about the XJR route but having looked into it the IVA requirement is putting me off so it might stay as standard.

 

Its the bottom of the range 2.4 version this time but I quite fancy restoring it like this as I've never driven a 2.4 and they are supposed to be quite smooth (although lacking in power).

 

 

The first picture shows the engine bay missing the chassis rail entirely, the second shows the front O/S jacking point and the last shows the new car with the one I've just finished.

 

It's a mission but i'm thinking I might do this one on the basis of "how cheaply can you restore a MK2 jag" as prices are climbing now and bits are horrendously expensive for some items.

Can those 2.4s take a supercharger?

To be honest i'm not sure, i've never seen a supercharged one.

 

In general people make them go faster by fitting bigger engines and then basic tuning rather than forced induction although I think someone did turbo one once.
