    Not that Iíve found. Have sourced 2 brand new OEM switches - yes, thatís as expensive as it sounds but should be good for another 40 years hopefully.

    You will, but most were thin on the ground in Oz. Here there were Austin Kimberleys and Morris Marinas, but I seriously doubt you'll find many of those to scavenge.... The Kimberley was in fact an OK car for what it was. Finding P76 stuff may help..........

    In the UK the whole British Leyland nightmare unfolds in front of you... Many switches , among other things, crossed over.

    Yes, you certainly need 9 parts cars. You see the parts everyone including you needs will be no good on all nine parts cars..... But the bits no-one wants (including you) there will be nine spares of

    New window switches in and working, just needs a polish before the car show this weekend. Have owned the Jag for just on 12 months now - time flys! Drove it 29 days on my permit, hopefully will be more this coming year.

    Still have a list of things to do to it, but while it starts and runs I think Iíll just keep driving it as I have too many other things to do. 😁

    Yep, put a Chev in it.

    Is that a big or small block?

    Um, no - wonít get a Chev in it while I own it. I have no issues with the Chev V8ís but I like the 4.2 engine and it matches the car well. While itís not overly powerful by todayís standards it will do 100MPH if pushed still (on a closed race track of course) 😇

    Itís a big lumbering saloon, although it handles surprisingly well and that rear end suspension is soooo sweet, itís unmatched in almost any other car, even to this day. Would say the only vehicle Iíve driven that rides better would be a Range Rover, but none of them could hold a candle to how this handles around corners as well as being able to absorb almost anything the road can throw up.
