Welcome to the forum. There are a lot of flavors to choose from here as far as projects go. It seems that "mutts" (I mean that in an endearing sense) are becoming more popular these days. I love when gearheads turn the automotive world upside down. If you are sayin' what I think you're sayin', That is an 89' Jag with a Cobra engine swap? That would be cool. When I was a teen, I worked at a car wash and in rolled Jag badged  XJ- 350. He had put a SBC under the hood. Can we get the story, specs, and some more pics

Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted, I had some trouble with my log in, and Sheri was kind enough to fix that, so maybe things will work better for me. 
   On to the Jacobra, yes you are correct in your assumption that I'm stuffing a 1971 Ford 460. into an 89 Jaguar XJS. The "Cobra" Moniker comes from, Cousin Carroll himself. I'm pulling a page from his play book. Take a British Sportscar and stuff it full of Big Nasty Ford. Thus the New Moniker "Jacobra". Has been coined and poorman copyrighted, by me. Some said why not put a chevy in it? Well because my name is "SHELBY" and we do things a little different!

When you get all done you should have someone airbrush the cobra body with a jaguar head behind the front wheels on the fenders
