It begins

This will be an extended post to chart the progress to date.

Donor vehicle was a 1990 XJ6 3.2l straight six with 5 speed manual GETRAG gearbox, purchased from ebay for a grand total for £600.

A somewhat delboy styled vehicle, not for long...

Nice straight six, need to see the condition of the bore.

Once secured from its original home in Poole the mechanical components were quickly extracted and the now empty shell taken away by the local scrapyards hiab.

In the garage, bonnet off


A good bit of stripping


The engine and gearbox comes out with mills to spare


The empty body loaded and off to the scrapyard


Chunky gearbox and engine


Front suspension assembly


Rear Suspension assembly


Pile of possibly useful electric and vacuum parts


Front suspension


Hefty diff and rear wishbones


Engine stripped of its ancilaries


Front and rear assembly stripped all usable parts laid out.
