The Suffolk SS100 is constructed by using a single Jaguar XJ6 Saloon 1969-1985 to provide all the major mechanical donor components. A recent MOT failure (usually because of rusty bodywork) is a perfect choice. The donor car would ideally have a 4 speed manual or 5 speed gearbox. However, all Jaguar XJ6 gearboxes are readily interchangeable and Suffolk always have manual donor gearboxes in stock. Suffolk can supply:-
1. Donor Cars as found - ready for stripping out
2. Donor Packs - containing the essential components ready for reconditioning
3. Donor Component Sets - fully restored, reconditioned and ready to fit (Big Boys Meccano)
Jaguar XJ6 donor cars provide all the major mechanical components and allows the customer a wide range of options within the chosen specification of their finished Suffolk SS100. Therefore whilst a donor car, as found or supplied, might be a white 4 door automatic saloon with a 4.2 litre engine, the completed Suffolk SS100 could be a red 2 door manual sports with a 3.4 litre engine. All donor car products are supplied with Jaguar XJ6 V5C registration documents.
