Up for sale my XJ6 which I have owned for 3 years. Reason for this sale (and most of my collection) is a 2. 5 year old daughter and simply not having the time. Car was driven twice last year and only once this year so really needs to be used more. Car is 1972 XJ6. Purchased from a collector whose collection was 20+ Jabuars. When I bought the car I was aware of the need for a few touch up areas and probably respray the drivers door. As it wasn't that offensive I simply enjoyed the driving experience. Car would still need paint/rust touch up for a show quality car. All areas photographed and the exterior is the car's weak point. The driver door shows some orange peeling and I think that when it was resprayed something was amiss with the paint. The rest of the car does however look good. At the time it appears the front screen rubber was replaced but not the rear. There is no rust or bubbling around these areas. The brightwork/chrome shows well. The rear bumper shows pitting which makes me think the front bumper was either re-chromed or OEM. Underside of the car looks good and floors solid (? replaced when restored). Small bubble of rust over passenger side arch and some evidence of repair at leading edge of driver's side wheel arch/rocker area. As per previous owner. engine was rebuilt and odometer zeroed. Now reads 22. 00. Car runs on twin SU's and drives through an automatic box. Much like my Triumph Stag (with auto box) I actually think the engine and gearbox go well together for Summer Cruising. Car pulls away without any bumps/grinds/smoking and stops straight as well. Car had transmission rebuild/brakes and shocks at the same time. Appraisal by Lawrence Auto Appraisal in 2008 @ $10. 00. Included with sale and can scan and e-mail if required. Also included is original E-bay listing. Interior is in great shape with the patina you would expect. All gauges seem to work fine and both fuel tank gauges work as does switching between them. Clock does not work. Dash top is perfect with no cracks. Electric windows work fine. All in all a good daily driver that with a little exterior work would give years of pleasure. I would welcome any inspection. A small receipt file for works done and a Florida State Title from 2000 as well as original owners manual included. I believe as it is a US car it would be eligible for re-import without the usual duty. Car is stored with my other cars and I am aware that shippers can take time. Assuming full payment received. I am happy to provide storage free up to 2 months. Also will work with any overseas buyer.
