12-13-2008 01:01 AM along the weird tale..
my therapy and hobby..a break from constant travel..was fixing and selling old Jags..and doing some hot rods..so grabbed the old war horse.


In 1976..I built a 327 for it..cleaned up the body..put in a rough interior from another project..and it was my daily..and parts runner.
I travelled alot from then until 1981/2..on the road for years..
It sat with my other projects
(I WISH I HAD)

Yeah..sometimes (RARELY) we get snow even here in Tucson..
Deville..

I bought my 1953 XK120 in 1974. It was an old racer that campaigned in SCCA C class out west mostly..until..1957 when it was converted to SBC power and raced in C/M class until late 60s or so. It was put aside..and given to THE ANUS OF THE UNIVERSE whose uncle bribed him to go to Univ OF AZ by giving him the old Jag.
Anusboy hated the Jag..hated this "hicktown" and wanted out badly..I helped him..

It was single aluminum bucket..alum floors..and metal dash with SW gauges..switches for fans..pump..on/off kill..big ugly roll bar..5 point belts..fuel cell in trunk..tired old GMC 6 and three speed..but NO RUST and very little body damage.
Lots of frame and brake mods for racing..extra thick SE torsion bars..dana LSD (rare)..all 4 brakes dual cyls manual adjust..proportioning valves..weird frame adjustable crossbar..etc..
