Are Invacars a bit too mainstream? 

Is your desire to be noticed just not fulfilled by the random shot box you drive now? 

Do you find you often arrive early fir stuff and therefore need a slower car? 

I may have the answer...

Fun fact, Stuart Cyphus (the Invacar guy) had one of those and IIRC his was the first to be road registered/legal in the UK  :)

you know its said the original rear lights on the Model 70 where borrowed from the Reliant Robin (and evidently kitten in this case)

but the Reliant robin did not come out until 1973, where as the Model 70 came out in 1971

so is this an actual case of rear lights off an invacar? :mrgreen: (I mention this because I always jokingly say Rear lights off an invacar whenever I see a Kit car/milk float/whatever using the common Britax rear lights that where also fitted to Model 70s after production ended)

“Hi, i’d Like a Rover please, a comfortable exec cruiser”

”We have a wide range of 75s if sir would like”

”No I was thinking something a bit more classic... oh and I should mention I would like it to be completely and utterly fucked”

”Step right this way sir, I have exactly what you’re after”

This one is a bit special to me at least. It’s my first Jag and featured in the first proper thread I did on Autoshite. I sold it long a go and the guy who bought it has had 18 months loyal service, no real problems and it has passed two MOTs. It may be scabby but it’s actually a brilliant car. It’s solid in all the right places. Chances are it might go through very cheap as it looks pretty sorry for itself in the photos (it isn’t really, just scabby). I’m still in touch with the owner and he has had a great and remarkably inexpensive time with the car. Best car purchase he ever made according to him apparently.

It really is weapons grade Autoshite. I hope it lives on for a bit longer.

It went through on auction recently with no MOT at roughly the starting price here. Now it has an MOT. I talked to the seller during the previous auction, who revealed that the diff had gone and a replacement was included (he didn't put that in the listing mind!). So now it's for sale again with the MOT and the diff still gone. Would be the perfect XJR6 donor car. If the timing were better I would probably buy it myself.
