Thanks....Thanks - Vadim, which pieces are missing from your example? I don't think I have any spares for the TL in my Politoys spares box, but if you can let me know which bits you need, I will have a look and will keep an eye out for any that come up which I don't have.
Noice! Thanks for the informative reply. :thumbsup:Yep, this one was issued in 1968, and would have remained in the range until about 1972 or thereabouts (its a bit hazy as to when the models were withdrawn).
They also did a Squareback, but although they'd planned to make it just as detailed, they realised the company was going bankrupt so they simplified it and made it the first in a cheaper range called the Export Series with way less detail.
Not that I advocate cutting up rare cars, but have you considered giving it the old LMX rat rod treatment? I can tell you there wouldn't be another Frankenjag like it anywhere! I can picture it now, lake pipes with black steelies.You could say rare doesn't necessarilly mean desirable. I have an '85 Jag XJ-SC with a 3 piece removable hrdtp of which only 300 were imported to the U.S. Nobody wants the damn thing!
Still cool, but wow, what a difference. The fastback is so much nicer like you said.
I'd be willing to bet our friend **** has a few of these. Probably several!
The world is awash with fine old cars that deserve good homes and still have lots of life left in them but are being scrapped because nobody wants them. The XJS wasnt Jag´s finest achievement......I've thought about that too.
The thing is just too rotted. I'm sick of fixing cars that should have been junked.
Maybe it's a noble deed to save old cars, but I'll let someone else save this one and put that energy into my '71 Imperial and my 2 '68 Furys.
