Hi All,

I am after advice on purchasing a Jaguaur S type (1960s) which particular engine 3.4 or 3.8 and if auto or Manuel, also most importantly what to look out for when viewing the car and what are the pitfalls of owning one.

Your thoughts would be most appreciated.

Hi Raj and welcome to the club.The pitfalls in buying an old car, particularly a classic one lies in its history.  You must find one that has had a story of good care and one that had been suitably garaged,

You won't find many automatic cars built in the sixties and both engines are good ones, but old engines have to have had a good service history.

Having said that ,, unless you buy one in mint condition, you will still have quite a bit of work on your hands.

Good luck,
