I restored that Jag at the top of the page a few years ago. Looked real nice when it was done.

is not the car that could use a few extra inches :oops:
I used to always slow down and admire that Jag...as derelict as it looked, zero sag in the chassis, proper fit and finish. Really impressive

It's not looking original. Looks made up from sheet metal/rhs and there is no rear cab. The original ones had a separate cab and tray if I'm not mistaken. That could probably explain the P number plate instead of T.

Nah. That was built by some guys from Amars. They did two, one with a full plexiglass panel on the middle section and one with a two piece. That is the one above that is rottening to the ground. If you saw that in it's day ,you would know right away I didn't build it.

The limos were built for Caribbean Sound Basin, Amars recording studio on long circular Rd. They were used to move the artistes in style. General Grant, Machel and many others used them as props for their acts.

If you see the work they doing and the real condition of those cars, you will know why. They talk about charging sixty g to restore a car but the work you getting not even worth $1000 .more butcher work than bodywork.
