Jaguar XJ6

Post by RowanG » Sat 15 Mar 2014, 19:47

Hi guys...

So I got a Jaguar XJ6 as a donor for my pick up. Turns out that this is a rather special Jag. Previous owner/s converted this to a Coupe ie. 2 door. The work seems to be done rather well, though the project was never completed.

My thoughts are:
1. Strip out the suspension, engine (smallblock 327) and probably a few switches, gauges and brake booster. Will then put the body up for sale, and open to offers.....or

2. Sell the car as is, with part payment in the form of front & rear suspension, engine & g/box....this way the car remains intact.
There is a possible buyer for option 2 which will be confirmed by Monday/Tuesday next week. Should he not come through, then I will confirm on this thread and will be happy to discuss further. In the interim, my number is 0839796060 and open to chatting on possibilities.

I think it would be a shame for this car to end up a cripple or tossed out for scrap. Pics attached...

Interesting custom there.

Tough call but I'm with you it should be allowed to live on since it's actually pretty decent looking...........has a strong 'Italian' vibe to it. :D

What really struck me is interesting is the PS pump being on the right hand side of the motor and; an older Saginaw to boot. Unless that pump was originally on the Six that Jag was born with and it was just adapted.

Sell it as is, someone please save the Jag! Will be a cool,
unique ride. I still can help but think, at the rate XJ6's are being butchered for suspension parts, one of these days they will be very scarce and start to fetch some money! As Jags that is..... not as donors!

Doesn't look bad in the photos, but it appears the beltline isn't too straight - back of and behind doors. Wonder how it was done? And how long ago?
Having been around this block more than once I'd be interested to see what's under the paint and then decide if the body is worthwhile hanging on to. Seen too many botch jobs that will start to give problems down the line. Fixing old metal is one thing.....once there is filler, fibreglass, brazing etc etc in the mix getting it right again means LOTS of work

As for XJ6's fetching money, maybe. But that would be original ones. Once it's cut it usually isn't worth much......no matter how well that work might be done.

Looks like it has been quite well done, is probably worth saving.

Wait not for tomorrow to do what can be done today, live each day for one knows not what the next day may hold.

I have to agree where custom bodywork is concerned: if done well, that's one thing, if a hack job...........hell no!

OTOH: apparently a 1969-87 XJ series fitted with a Chevy V8 here in the USA in general is worth more than one with the original Six in it.

Hi all,

Pulled the Jag home, and am looking to strip in the next few weeks.
Open to offers on the body, and if possible, would prefer stripping at the buyers premises, to allow for ease of moving the car with wheels intact.

Let me know...

I am looking for one to strip for cars. Near Cape Town. But I am curious what happened to this body.
Get Ghia to endorse it and you have yourself a very rare and valuable Coupe ;-)
