I sold my 200tdi 110. It was a tough decision. But i got a great car back for it a 1968 series1.5 e-type. If you think defenders have rust then don't buy a E-type. Lots of rust. Its going to be a fun project, but costly.
I love the Jag! It's so much fun to drive. I always love the series one e-types. But mot of them are already restored and way out of my budget. I would like to have a coupe but was out of my league to. So i settled for a 2+2. The cheeps e-types you cans find.
She looks good on the pictures but a closer look will show a lot of rust. Looking at the panels i have to replace on the Jag, you really start loving the defender for it's simplicity!
The 2+2 are cheaper just because folks don't like them so much. The lines are a bit different 9 inches longer and a bit higher roof. I like them to. Its always a trend first they wanted all a convertible, now they all want a coupe. Maybe 10 hers from now it will be the 2+2. The other funny thing is that they chopped a lot of coupes the build a convertibles. They where is such high demand and selling for crazy $$ that they chopped up a lot of coupes. Now the coupes are getting fairly rare and expensive.
For ROVERMAN. I like your series 2. Did you replaced the floor and boot your self? Where the inner and outer sills still ok? Mine are shot.
Yes have done the lot here at home, biggest thing is to make a level cradle for when you start chopping stuff out, I found it best to check the parts books to see how things are put together replacing the floors and such cut all out and put in new. I think now you can buy complete sections, I did it in three sections. I did one side sill in and out, again I had a measured frame to keep things straight.
I got a bit more to do to the rear end and got to start thing about paint (BRG)
looking for some carbs if you happen across any cheap!, still looking as we lost the old ones to hurricane IKE
Edward Teach is the Blackbeard, and is a member of the Birmabright Brotherhood.
Still looking for that place where I can carry a paddle and get asked what's that.
