Years ago I was told several times by a Jaguar owner that you cannot fit air conditioning to a 3.8 auto. I do not know the cars very well but I do not see why you can on others but not this. Do you know?
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
There are a lot of MKII's with air and more importantly, power steering, as after market modifications. The only two modifications really essential to make them just about the perfect classic car in my twisted opinion.
Beautiful example Pierre and well outside my finances. I had a very nice Series 1 XJ6, that I traded for a Bedford bus!? Strange swap, but when I was younger I often changed my vehicles on a whim. My wife had got fed up with me adding extra cars and we had agreed on a one in - one out basis which is still working (sort of)
Morris, I believe you can fit both to a 3.8.
PDU, when my wife & I bought our first house 45yrs ago I had a running 1937 4 door Chev Sedan I was going to restore.
We walked into the house with a dollar in our pockets after we paid the builder the last progress payment & the wife said where's the TV?
Stupidly I sold the Chev to get her a TV, regretted that every day since!!
we move on
And again we were running parallel - when I bought my first house I had a 1936 Ford Sedan, with a Columbia 2 speed rear end, to which I added a '37 truck engine. I did not sell mine.
Later I put a Chev V8 and Valiant running gear into it, although after a year or so the Jag electric fuel pump in it had some issues, ultimately causing it to catch on fire and destroying it!
I was left me in a desolate state for about three months . . . very sad. DO NOT forget to include a fire extinguisher in any car you build.
