1971 Jaguar XJ6
|Item status:||In archive|
Here is a fully ready to use XJ6 survivor. It drives nicely without
issues. No reserve.
I’ve known this car since the early 1980’s. I met the
then-owner at our Ontario Jaguar Owners’ Club meeting. He had bought the car with about 80,000
miles, when it was sold due to an engine problem, which turned out to be the
cracks between the cylinder bores. He set about to restore the car, and spent
years gathering NOS parts, sourcing Euro-spec parts, and disassembling the
front end of the car. It remained in his heated garage until I bought it in
2008 after he had given up. I’ve owned
several S1’s, do most of my own work, and took up the challenge.
A S3 engine professionally rebuilt was sourced, and
restoration/reassembly started. Euro twin SU intake with AED was fitted. The
front suspension was totally rebuilt with all new parts, including NOS calipers. 7 inch outer headlamps were fitted, along
with NOS indicator lamps, and side markers, side view mirror.
The Ascot Fawn paint was redone about 1980, and is in fair
condition. There’s bubbling on the boot lid, some orange peel, about 15
scratches and chips that have been touched in. The rear valance has peeling
filler, and dents. The RH sill has a dent. All the panels are original, and I
believe there have been no accidents. The body is quite rust free.
The sun roof was fitted at the dealer I’m told. It works,
but the seal could not be trusted as I do not always have indoor storage. I
filled the gap with plasticean which can
be easily removed without messy residue. There are roof drains fitted, and the
installation seems good quality.
The heater core leaks, and so the hoses have been
bypassed. As a summer car, this was
never an issue. Blowers work fine. The
A/C was never hooked up, but all components are there.
The leather was soft and there were no tears, so I re-dyed
them the original Biscuit using Leatherique products.
The Michelin tires
are a matched set and have a lot of tread left.
Both fuel tanks and new pumps work.
Both front the rear screen seals need to be replaced.
The exhaust system is sound. The front downpipe is stainless
because in my experience the flexible portion rusts out fast in mild steel. New
battery just installed. A note for USA buyers: If you accompany the car across the border there are no problems or delays. If you have it shipped, then a broker is required. If you are considering a shipper, TFX International is near me, and very professional.
