Hey Guy's had a customer who popped into work today and noticed
my Trans Am out the front, we got talking and he advised how his
Jaguar Series 3 had been converted to a 403 around 10 years ago....
Said he'd leave us a parting message......
Sadly i only got to film the last of his burnout......enjoy

Never have understood why everybody knocks the 403 so much. Keep the revs down and they will last forever. Love my 403!

pretty cool...but can't help wondering, out of all the different American V8's out there, why he selected the 403 for a retrofit....not that it's a bad engine, but there are so many options that probably would have been easier and less expensive....I mean there is a reason you see so many SBC's retrofitted into other vehicles...but that's pretty cool and original nonetheless....

The fella told me an American Muscle car importer from Ballarat Victoria Australia imported a load of these around 12 years ago
as complete engine and trans packages and was selling them dirt cheap...Apparantly there's was also a few that had been also fitted into a few range rovers aswell....
