And now for something completely different… a Jaguar 420.
As a Craiglist junkie, I do enjoy finding the occasional oddball vehicle to break up the monotonous parade of ’66 Mustangs (289,C4, Pony interi… zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, I’m sorry, were you saying something?) This car is a direct descendant of the MkII’s that sell for a little more money, and the owner’s ad says it is the Daimler badged version (think Ford/Mercury), which normally gets you better interior woodwork and standard leather. The pictures also show what looks to be a two tone paint job in colors that can only be described as British. The grill is certainly the Daimler fluted grill. It has 11,000 miles, so it’s just getting started. I like this car and admit that I want it. I’m a bit short on cash, however, so I would like someone else to pick this up and make it spiffy. As always on the Craigslist front, I don’t know the owner, am not being paid to put this here, and also have no idea if it’s really a rustbucket. But, it sure looks cool.
