    Interesting. The body looks good - I wonder how much work was involved.

    Cracking bondo on the hood is NOT a good sign.

    Agreed. But the lines between the hood and fender look very uniform in the pic (but reality may not be as kind).
    I’m curious as to which parts were swapped without modification, what was swapped with modification, and what individual parts were grafted from the jag onto the ford equivalent.

    I would have liked to see a pic of the open hood.
    Altering a hood like that one correctly would take a lot of skill. I would not attempt it myself.

    Good point and well may be the reason there isn’t an open hood shot.

    I was surprised to read about the bondo issue also. Brave to state that in the add and try to use the need to repair it as a selling point to increase the value to $11,000. Since that series of Jaguar was steel I would have expected at least lead to be used if necessary. I can't tell if the hood and grill was widened or not but I would have liked to see under the hood. It looks like some styling cues were stolen from the Lightening (which I would like to have.)
