I can't see the pics very well on my phone, but if I remember right the common swap was all GM stuff because the jag parts never worked.

Helluva sexy car.

I want a 4.6 cobra supercharged engine and trans in my Miata. Lots of people swap 5.0 and LS1, so I can find all the parts and either use plates or make motor mounts.

C'mon Chris, he is out now, we need to support him in his decision....

My dad was the original owner of a '67 XKE. He sold it in the early '80s. It was white as well, but it was a hard top. Loved that car.

Look like aftermarket gauges (custom) possibly not from any particular car...............
