Welcome to the list.
You’ll get a bunch of information about this, as there are bunches
of differences. I’ll give a quick rundown.
Series 2 was cars produced from 1974 to early 1979.
Series 3 was later 79 to 1987. (92 in Canada)
Series 2 were first carburated cars, then changed to fuel injection
around 1975 for the XJ12, or 1977 for the XJ6. All of the Series 3
cars were fuel injected.
Series 2 has a lower roofline in the back. Windows, mirrors,
interior, rear lights, bumpers, trim, wheels, etc … all different.
Although a very nice looking car, the Series 2 is generally
considered to be a more poorly built car.
I know others will chime in with more… this should get the ball
The original message included these comments:
I have a 1978 XJ6 Series 11.
What is the difference between the 11 and 111 series.
