"Faithful reproduction of the original Low Drag Coupe body designed by Malcolm Sayer in 1964 for the Linder / Nocker race team has been completed by Vicarage Motorcars (US). The original car was fitted with a ZF 5 speed and ran successfully at Goodwood as well as other circuits in the UK and at Le Mans ( tag# 4868WK) where she was lying 5th in class when gearbox and brake problems caused her to retire. She was rated originally at 322bhp and then 344bhp after some exhaust tweaking.

The Vicarage car has been fitted with a Vicarage Spec. JT5 5 speed gearbox - a proven transmission with both sprint and long distance victories to its credit. This box is fitted to all Vicarage Jaguars for both road and race applications.This particular car is the subject of a BBC (English Television) program called Top Gear. It will show the car racing at Goodwood in February of 2000."

Every Jaguar enthuisiast owes it to themselves to check out the Vicarage website

looks nice but, those wheels appear to be older Chevy van wheels.

The wheels should look nice as these pin drives wheels are worth several times more money than an old Chevy van!
