[xj] XJ6 Series 3 Avon Estate

Helen of Bogs Lane, Harrogate, showed me the scrapyard where my
Series 1 project lies. Amongst the gems was this XJ6 Series 3 with
an Avon coachworks Estate conversion. I hadn�t realised that such
things exist. This certainly looks prettier than the Lynx estate
conversion for the XJ-S.

Helen has extensive paperwork for this estate. It also belonged to
Lord Sainsbury (I think). A long time since, it has sat stripped
out and neglected. A poor state of affairs.

No this is not one of my projects � I don�t like modified cars, not
to this extent. Helen�s partner might get round to it someday�

Prettier than the Lynx? Surely not: to me it looks like they
designed a hearse and only later realized it makes for a
really big estate car;) Roomy: Yes; beautiful: Hardly.
Would I want one? YES:D–

There are an awful lot of Jaguar graveyards in Yorkshire -
speaking of which the back end of this thing looks an awful
lot like a hearse!–

Richard:

That would make an excellent car for attending what we call ‘‘swap
mneets’’ in USA. I think you all refer to Stonleigh as your version.

If it is not a ‘rust bucket’’, it would certainly be a good place to
transfer good mechanicals from a rust bucket into.

But, agree that tail isn’t very attractive and is suggestive of a
hearse. Although retired hearses are seen from time to time
as ‘‘haulers’’.

At one time the neighbor across where we lived used a Cadillac
Hearse for a tow vehicle for his race boat, ‘‘The Undertaker’’.
it was disposed off, when the boat catapulted and killed his
friend, the driver. Very sad.
