I know the last one listed. It definitely needs paint, and has a dent on
of the right front wing, right on the crease, that looks like something
on it. It also needs a new interior; seats are all shapeless, although
leather is not as bs as some I’ve seen. Drove pretty well though. Didn’t
buy because I’m saving my cash for my E-type!
Thanks for the information Warren, seems other Listers don’t mind a Chat
well altleast there is no expressed disapproval yet.
The last car you describe sounds good to me, suprising the value here would
be about same, maybe more if the Miles were confirmed, the said car with an
engine problem would be what I was after,less money, I would be doing the
I’m wondering if the XJ6 Ser 1 is not “Cool Enough” in the US ?
The four doors seems to be the down side for some, the Coupe Variant is a
pretty car shame they leak water so easily.
Is the Mark 2 a Cool car in the US ? We got the bulk of exports here in
Australia,well I think we did, the Mark 2 is to me the Classic Jag maybe
more then an E Type for different reasons,Bob Jane,Ron Hodgson and others
made it a Legend here as it was in the UK, don’t here much about it in the
US though, was it raced in the US?
I was to race a XJ6 stick shift at Bathurst, after preliminary testing the
project was abandoned when the Sponsors were persuaded by my prospective CO
Driver to go for a Toyota Corrolla, I was disappointed as a Mercedes 280SE
that we had seen practice was slower then the Jag and was well placed well
in actual Race until a holed Radiator caused overheating.
I suppose I will always wonder what might have been.
If Listers ever get the chance to have a drive in a really good XJ6 Ser 1 do
so, they may change their minds about the said XJ.
The Ser 3 XJ is indeed a nice car, strange as it might seem they are very
reliable apart form the Trip Computer & Cruise Control they stand up very
well after all these years.
I don’t understand that some may think the XJ6 SER 1 is un reliable, its a
very basic car sharing so many design features of the E Type which is
equally a very basic and easily maintained car .
The Ser 1 XJ can be updated with brake components from the SER 3 and with a
Stick Shift easily fitted makes a good fun Rally,or Club Race Car as well as
a daily driver.
With some careful attention to suspension and engine it makes the Mark 2
seem very antiquated.
I see Dan Mooney is getting some goodies for the XJ Sedans, Alloy Radiators,
Good Shocky’s and more, remember whatever you can do to the E Type the Ser 1
XJ responds equally as well.
It’s my to day pick of the Jaguar Classic Sedans maybe not as nostalgic as
the Mark 2 but it should become more appreciated in time.
