Facelift Bumper and grill but non facelift lights?
Alarm bells!
If it was Cossie, might be worth the risk, but not for a 2.3

Probably had facelift headlights originally due to being on a R plate - maybe 1 headlight glass got cracked and the owner couldn't find a replacement so fitted the earlier lights in order to have a matching pair ?

I was bored, - so I read this again. Now I am amused.  
 Nice to know amongst all the current constrictions of life we can still laugh, take the mickey out of everything and generally run amok.
 But we cant go down the pub-so that means less drunken drivers on the road and more room for us to scorpio when we need new zimmers, walking sticks, dentures, hair restorer, viagara  or just cheap petrol. (Sorry Arabs we dont need your stuff anymore-we're all stayin in till the price goes down).
Comments and insults welcome, where there is life there is hope.
 I look at it this way no banger racing now, so look out for lots of spares coming our way shame theres so few people to buy them now, as they have been "raced" to death Smiley

I seem to remember BAZ was the first one to fit them about 10/12 years ago and he did quite a good write up for it. If I can find the article I will post a link back, but it is quite and easy job... apparently

It's horrible stuff!   I always use Shell petro,l high-octane, it's about £1.41 a litre.   Shell currently use less Ethanol that ANY other fuel supplier.

Hello All
I do look in here regularly, if only really for the nostalgia!   I still have my Three Jaguars, Two X300's (one LWB) and my 1957 XK140.   I shan't mention the Jaguar site that I'm a member of, and how USELESS the members are, in case anyone knows someone on the site!   But the aforementioned site is mainly full of 'Chappies' that collect their 'Jag-waars' and get someone else to look-after one's car!   Ho ho.    Sometimes there is some useful info, and there are one or two real people that look after their own cars, but nothing like on here.   Still, neither of the big Jaguars can compete for the comfort of the Scorpio, the LWB car comes close because it's a 'Sovereign' but then even with new suspension it's 'squidgy' compared to the Scorpio, because it has 'Comfort' suspension.   I was going to fit a set of Scorpio front seats into my LWB, but instead I have decided to fit them into the '57 XK140!   And will fit all the electrics into the car as well!   I got the seats from a Belgian car that had only 50k Klicks on the clock.    Cost me 200 euros from a Ford dealer, and in lovely condition.
The XK140 in nowhere near completion, I seem to be more busy than ever now I'm retired, people keep asking me to fiddle-about with their cars!   A dying trade up here.   I've finished the body, and it's long been converted to RHD.   I have an also retired work colleague that was a cabinet-making Lecturer doing a new dash from Brazilian-Walnut.   I have finished the 4.2 Mk10 Engine, and 'Bench-Run' it with Triple 2 inch SU's, and Triple-Webers, I'll stick to the SU's!   I've sourced a nearly new ZF Auto-Gearbox, and serviced it.   I'm assured that it will mate to the 70's 4.2 Engine, and have seen one in place, but will need to make a driveplate for it.
I still have a lot of spares, some new, and some very good second-hand.   I'll need to list them here and see if anyone wants them for a reasonable price.   I need to think about this, perhaps I should list the items, and look for bids, and donate half the money to the site?   After-all, I'm never going to use the stuff.   I have a brand new 12 spoke wheel, never been against a hub, as can easily be seen, has a fair tyre fitted.   I'll easily post stuff to people, but I'd rather it didn't ultimately cost me money.   I'm open to suggestions?   Or, I could box the whole lot up, and send it to one of the admin peeps at their cost, and they could sell it off for site/club funds, and when it's all gone, send me a Scorpio plaque, how about that?   I'll list the stuff soon.   I don't even know if the remaining members are interested in the stuff? Anyway, I'll pop in soon, as usual.
Kind regards to all, Peter

Crown Victoria is one of my all-time favourites, I had the Mercury Grand Marquis version on holiday in America.
