1983 Jaguar XJ-6 5 speed manual gearbox conversion

My trusty 300k mile XJ6 needed something to help keep her young, and I decided the best thing would be a manual gearbox. This was a 5-speed Getrag 265 from a 1981 BMW 528i. With a bit of luck, help from friends and an excellent machinist who was willing to do small odd jobs, I was able to make this a reality. The transformation in the car was truly amazing,she now seems to have some enthusiasm, whereas before I think she had decided to settle gently into the good night. I had the windows down when I made this video and the noise you hear as the car picks up speed is from the wind and the lens cap banging against the tripod. I will try to do better next time..... Details of the project can be seen at jagsouthrestoration.com
