Two grand seems a very fair price. I wonder whether the "A40 bubble" has finally burst?

I prefer the A40. I had an Email type at the same time as an A40 10 or so years ago.

My word, Claire, that was an eclectic pair of classic motors to own!

Love the shot of the Jag's engine room - just a tad different from an A-series engine . . . and 15mpg, wow.

15 was a bit optimistic. 12 was more likely.

I always look at the sill line on a 'shiny' car! It will tell you a lot about the state of the body minus all the filler etc under the paint. This one has bodged sills (look at the bottom rear of the NS front wing) and no jack holes. I suspect it would need work on the sills to preserve it longer term. That said, it is reasonably straight along the bottom.

The engine bay is not bad with reasonably sound inner wings (is that just surface rust?) and no sign of bubbling of the plenum chamber.

The interior is tatty so would need some work.
