[collectibles] 1:18 Jaguar XJ6.....Anywhere?!

Hi There -

I’ve recently bought a 1972 XJ6, and wonder whether anyone
anywhere has produced a 1:18 scale model of these cars?

I think probably not…I’ve found an XJS and most other
Jags, but not an XJ6.

If anyone knows a firm that does one, please let me know!

Thanks

This company has a 1/43 scale model of Series 1 and 2;

I collect model kits, and have for over 30 years. I remember many
years ago as a kid, that I believe Tamiya or another Japanese
company offered one for sale in the late seventies or earliy
eighties. It was 1/24 or 1/25 scale. It was billed as
the ‘‘Saint’s Jaguar’’, but was of course the wtong car, as ‘‘The
Saint’’ had an XJS, and they promptly pulled the kit from the
market. I never saw the kit come back as a standard XJ6. If you
could find one of those, it would go for $500 plus. I have not
seen one for sale in years. I’ve never seen anything of your car
for sale in 1/18 scale, yet. If you find one, let us know; I would
like to have a couple of 'em. Brandon–

I have also been trying to find any 1:18 scale of an XJ6
without luck.

Vanguard make a 1:43 in diecast but so far as I can find no
one makes anything larger.

Burago make several versions also in diecast of the XK E (E
type) and also various versions of the Mk II but no XJ 6.

IF I do manage to find something I will post here again.

Cheers , Pete.–
