Technical specifications, photos and description:
The Jeep Farm. LLC is proud to offer this amazing 1973 Jaguar XJ6 Series 1 for sale. With only 76K original miles!!! This rare garage find was owned by famous western artist Thomas Lorimer. After he passed away I purchased this car from his estate. It had been sitting since the mid 80's covered in yellow and pink bath towels and cardboard. It even had "high society" bias ply white walls on it. After purchasing it. I had the power steering rack professionally rebuilt with life time warranty. installed new tie rods. nbsp;new ball joints and a professional alignment. It has the factory Girling shocks and is VERY clean underneath. I also removed the factory coil spacers to lower the front 1" and give it the appropriate stance.
This beautiful Greensand beige Jag is a Arizona original that had a professional 350 chevy installed in the mid 80's by a company in California (the name escapes me. but there is a tag in the engine compartment) The 1978 block has impala brackets with PS pump brackets A/C compressor and other items. It also has a cast 4 BBL intake with a quadrajet. The block and distributor and ram exhaust manifolds are all 80's Corvette. The TH350 shifts and acts like it should. The motor and trans are believed to have less than 30k miles on them. (information via Thomas's best friend that helped me when I purchased the car) The car has plenty of power and drives strait and true nice and smooth like a jag! . it has dual exhaust that is older with 2 mufflers and two resonators. It is VERY quiet. I also added 4 brand new 235/60/15 BFG radials that have less than 500 miles on them and the spare is a used radial tire. (the fatter BFG's don't fit as a spare. causes the trunk floor not to sit flat)
The body is completely rust free and has had one repaint in its life. There is a small portion of paint missing under the drivers wiper. Please look at pictures. Otherwise it ha a beautiful shine and next to no chips or scratches. The chrome and brightwork is amazing. I found online the 7" euro headlights and buckets and installed them on the car to make it look "right" The original 4" outer lights and buckets and chrome are included with the sale. There is also New grommets for the side marker lights and tail lights included with the sale.
The interior is all original and in amazing shape. The drivers seat has some fading in the seat area and there is a small 1/2" tear in the passenger seat that is hard to see. Door panels are great as is the carpet. The headliner is the only place showing wear. Again look at the pics. It has a few bubbles in the headliner and there is staining and its falling apart around window. I tried cleaning it. but it just falls apart. Also included is a new rubber grommet for the rear window. It does not leak. don't understand why there is water seepage? washed car many times and no seepage. Part of the weather striping is on back order from Welsch Jaguar. Will send as soon as it arrives. The visors are sagging and could stand being redone. The speedo works as does the tach. however the tachometer reads incorrectly as it is set up for a 6 cyl. Does not overheat at all. great oil pressure. The stock radio works but seems to be getting interference from the ignition. can only be heard when starting car. I installed new window motors in the front windows and they go up and down great. the rears are working as they should. I also had the windows professionally tinted (it is Arizona after all). really helps cool the car down. The A/C compressor clicks on. but I have yet to put Freon in it. All lights. turn signals. hazards interior lights work. The drivers door is the only door that wont actuate the interior lights. The fuel gauge does not work. Included with the car are two later model jag gas tanks. nbsp;two new fuel senders and gaskets. I was going to do a EZ-EFI or FAST FUEL style fuel injection on the car. You have to have the later tank with the return lines in order to make this swap. The plus for the fuel gauge is in the trunk by the spare and needs to be hooked up when installing the new senders. I purchased it like this. The Wood is in VERY nice shape as is all the interior chrome. I installed a VERY rare Nardi wheel with a adjustable Mark 2 and series 1 adaptor. The original steering wheel is included with the car. (if you wish to have the original and not the Nardi. I will give you a discount so I can keep my Nardi)
The trunk has been professionally re-stitched in tan leatherette. with custom sides and panels under the trunk lid. New gas tank vents and all wood over spare compartment is all in amazing shape.
This is REALLY an amazing find. I hate to sell it as I love Jags and have restored a few in the past. I know I normally do Jeeps. but I have a soft spot for Jags. I purchase it because of the cool color and I always wanted a car built the same year as me. She runs and drives great! Super cool color and the chrome is amazing! With the fatter BFG's and v8 it handles very well and is fun to drive. You will not be disappointed with this car!! Like I said I hate to sell but I am a small business owner and sometimes I need to sell toys and put the money back into the business. My loss your gain. Add fuel injection and a throaty exhaust and drive this car all the time. (that was my plan anyways) as you can tell she is turn key and ready to roll. She still needs some tinkering but you can proudly drive it as you work on it. Simple stuff like headliner. charge A/C etc.
I do restore cars for a living. please look at my web site www. thejeepfarm. com I do stuff other than Jeeps! I am asking $10. 00 but willing to look at good offers. This vehicle is being sold as is not warranty. I do require a 250. 00 deposit within 24 hours of the buy it now. Full payment must be made within 72 hours. I will accept Paypal for the deposit only.

Shipping is up to the buyer. There is a quote program on my website. The shipper that I use is fast and reliable. Please get yourself a quote and contact Michael via that link. I take great pride in my work and try to be as honest as I can when describing the condition. Please remember this is a 43 year old car that spent most of its life sitting in a garage.
