Trips to Goodwood. Jaunts to the Le Mans Classic. A weekend away to the country. This is exactly what this uprated S Type is destined for. Complete with an uprated 3.4 engine that was recently rebult using 9.1 pistons, Piper mild road cams fed twin 2″ SU carbs with electronic ignition and electric choke.
A stainless steel six branch exhaust not only enhances the performance but also produces a fantastic, sonorous rich bark without being intrusive on a long journey. The transmission has been upgraded to a Getrag system replete with a short shift and lightened flywheel and high torque starter motor. To aid cooling a larger ali radiator has been fitted plus a Kenlowe electric fan with manual override and this car also benefits from an XJ6 power steering rack and Coopercraft brakes.
A few modern concessions to comfort and usability such as halogen headlights, upgraded XJ6 wiper motor and a Sony CD/i-pod stereo system too.
