There are couple of more that I didn't post, but you can see where is surface rust on the bottom.  If you want any additional pictures, I can certainly get those.

Giving this a bump for another try.  Decent starting point for a project.

I'm not a player, but has anybody done a manual transmission conversion for the V12?  I guess in a cruiser, it wouldn't be all that desirable.

It's been done.  That would be a nice upgrade, in my opinion.

As a race car those will be fine. Just patch up any holes. You won't be using the trailing arms that way anyway.   oops.! Those trailing arms look OK for the street. 
    The chassis strength is mainly in the rocker panels.  From what I see if you scrape off the undercoating that should give you a fairly decent floor. 
  For a restoration project buy a rust free chassis.  Even up here in the rust belt the Jaguar was often so revered the owners didn't drive them in the winter.  The rusty ones are a good parts source.  
   Chances are excellent the engine is fine. The problem likely is in the EFI. Or  the GM ignition module under the plastic Lucas cover.

It's almost a bolt in.  Well you've got to pull the GM Turbo 400 tranny out first and then buy a flywheel instead of the torque converter.  Only one part to fabricate and it's simple
