      Weren’t those guards dealer installed? I thought there wasn’t a “factory correct” position. I thought I read that somewhere along the line, maybe in a Road & Track article.

      Factory installed, though I think you could tick a box and have them not put on (I think my COA has them listed). You could also have them on a Carrera/SC and those are smaller/thinner width. Over the years they will be replaced, the Porsche ones are pricey so there were allot of aftermarket options. I have a set of magnetic ones which I am going to try out. They have to be removed to access the torsion bars, so unless its a super low mile car then they have been replaced. Some people chose to not put them back on, matter of preference and if you care about rock chips.

      The 'factory correct' position is the rear edge follows the the fender opening where it flattens out.

      I absolutely love it. Re-creation or not, it is a "real" jaguar engine and a helluva nice aluminum body. The XKSS was one of the first vintage Euro cars I fell in love with as a teenager.

      Beautiful car. It's at $210 usd with 13 days to go. Original car apparently was 1m pounds, safe to say this will be a 7 figure sale?

      very cool, thank you! Now I wonder where I read that, I think it was a "Salon" or some vintage purchase feature of a 930. Funny to be worried about their originality if they pretty much all have to be replaced as you use the car.

      Yeah, they are actually very functional, you see cars without them and the rear fenders are sand blasted to hell since the front wheels just fires debris into the flares. Same goes for 911 hoods, they are so low all they do is collect rock chips. That's why its super rare to see a car that hasnt had paint work.

      Funny story -

      I went to look at a 930 when I was shopping, its was an incredible dark blue/purple. The seller said it had all original paint, which was indeed true, sort of. When I got there it looked like the car had the measles, the owner touched up EVERY SINGLE paint chip. Like thousands of chips over the ENTIRE car. There was arguably more touch up paint on the car then original paint. It was a shame, it was a great car at a decent price, i would have bought it if it just had the rock chips.

      I think the price will be more like $400K. If you search the web for "Lynx XKSS for sale" you see auction results and list prices in the $400k-500K range

      Me, too! Same mileage, 3 years newer, but price will be higher (or maybe not!).

      these things strike me as a great deal for cars of this type.

      Saab's don't do anything for me, and quite frankly I don't understand their cult-like following.
