Leadsled 65 Jag MK 10, owned by shoemaker John Fluevog

The Jaguar MK 10 that Sigurd Fluevog bought back in 1965 with his son along, was a rusted-out hulk, ready for the scrapyard. But the father and son decided to make a crusier out of it ... very cool. They went to RX Autoworks in north Vancouver, which does Pebble Beach Concours winning stuff.

They lowered the roof four inches, lengthened the front about three inches, changed the wheel well shape, lengthened the headlights two inches, changed the tail lights.
It’s got more modern Jaguar steering, air conditioning, a Lt1 Corvette engine, air suspension and a croc-skin interior.
