I think the problem with a Challenge XKE would be that unless you had purchase or trade evidence of all the actual jaguar parts equaling $2000 or less, the (true) combined FMV on pretty much all of it would far exceed that. 

Now something like a fiberglass XKE body made from scratch mounted over something like a wrecked BMW Z3 (same wheelbase) would be a lot more realistic

"How much has to be original?"

Nothing for me. Everything for you.

In reply to Indy "Nub" Guy :

You will. It hasn't arrived from the seller yet (Berkeley Joooe!) But it will be coming soon enough. 

It has no front clip. Had a minor fire on the driver's interior area but does start and idle.

It is my intention to sell down what I'm not using for the purchase price and apply the engine, suspension, a Holley Terminator, a 3.9 manual trans and possibly a button clutch or similar, as well as a Lincoln LS Sport 3.54 locker gear under a $150 XR4Ti.

What year is the XJR donor? I might need some bits and bobs.  Could help you out with re-coupe.

That's the "X350" Chassis.  Aluminum body.  Yupididit and I both have the previous "X308" Chassis.  I'm out too.
