Great XJ6 restoration project. The early XJ's had all the lines that made Jaguar a marque. These cars came along before British Leyland and Ford influences. I have the car running nicely. It has not been on the road for a few years but I drained the old gas, flushed out the tank and cleaned the carbs. It starts and runs nicely. It was taken off the road due to a leak in the exhaust manifold where the downpipe attaches to the exhaust manifold. Not overly loud but enough to warrant a new gasket on one side, or tightening. The engine runs very nicely. It was tuned just prior to taking off the road. I rescued the car from a local man that was third owner and had lost interest in the car. I don't see why it can't be put put back on the road and a driving restoration take place. It will need painting, a headliner, a rubber for the front overrider, or a pair of earlier overriders would be nice, the centre of the rear bumper could use replating. The seats are worn in and comfortable. I see new leather seat covers on ebay at $280.00 for the fronts and the same for the back. The back seat has a crack and some of the seams are separating on the top. One of the horn rads is missing as is the right side sun visor. These small bits are easily found. The factory air cleaner comes with the car. I took it off to clean the carbs.
The tires are new, still having the paper on the treads and tags on the sidewall. They are Michelin. The gearbox seems to shift smoothly. I have not taken it down the road, only driving it around in our driveway. The brakes feel good. Radio works. The previous owner was driving the car prior to the exhaust manifold leak. All the lights and all gauges work, but not certain about the fuel gauge. I replaced the dual tank switch, but not enough gas in the tank to test it.
I don't see any rusting out. Surface rust in spots and on the roof but this can be addressed with painting. A good driving project at a very affordable price. No reserve auction.

The Jaguar E-Type is one of the icons of automotive design, and British company Eagle has made a business out of restoring, upgrading and building their bespoke versions for the last 30 years. It does for the E-Type what Singer does for the Porsche 911 - takes an already great classic car and updates its mechanicals for the modern age.

The firm's latest creation, the Low Drag GT, might be its greatest ever, at least according to editor Henry Catchpole in Evo magazine's latest video. The car takes its inspiration from a trio of low-drag E-Type coupes built in the 1960s, but thoroughly modernizes the concept. The engine is based on Jag's inline-six, but made from aluminum and bored out to 4.7 liters to produce 346 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque. Catchpole says it's enough to propel it to 60 miles per hour in about 4.5 seconds. The body, transmission and differential are all also made from aluminum to cut the weight to 2,288 pounds, and modern upgrades include Ohlins dampers, AP Racing brakes and even extras like concealed GPS navigation and an Alcantara headliner. There's more head- and legroom than the originals, too.
Each car is built bespoke for each buyer, so prices vary, but Catchpole says the one he is in would run about half the cost of a LaFerrari - around $700,000.
Jay Leno looks inward on this episode of his eponymous garage, checking out a 1963 Jaguar XKE that he bought earlier this year. It is an example of his favorite kind of car, that being original and unrestored. He bought the E-Type from its first owner, a woman who purchased it new, held on to it for 50 years and took excellent care of it. Having never been in an accident, Leno says even the paint is 85- to 90-percent original.

In the video, the XKE sits in front of two heavily modded XK120s and another '63 XKE, but Leno said all he's done - and all he plans to do - is clean it up and put on a modern set of wire wheels for safety.
He's not on any junket and there are no guests, it's just a guy talking about an object dear to his heart. If you need a refresher on the excellent genes of the new F-Type, check out the video below.
With the XE now out in the open, Jaguar can begin to focus on what comes next. That means a new crossover, but also replacements for some of its aging current models - chief among them, the XF. Introduced back in 2007, Jaguar's mid-range sedan is growing a little long in the tooth. But from these latest spy shots, we can see that the British automaker is hard at work developing its successor.
Expected to be based on the same iQ A1 platform that underpins the new XE, the new XF promises to be lighter in weight and more advanced than the model it replaces. Look for most of the same engines to carry over, including gasoline and diesel options ranging from four cylinders to eight, with and without forced induction, with a potential plug-in hybrid version to follow. The current model is available in rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations and in sedan and wagon body styles, and we'd expect its replacement to follow suit.
The low-profile wheels and dual exhaust pipes on one of the prototypes spotted suggests it would lie somewhere near the top of the range, while the second prototype packs taller sidewalls and a trailer hitch. It's hard to discern much esle from the spy shots, heavily camouflaged as they are, but as with the technology underneath, we'd expect styling to takes some cues from the smaller XE as well. Jaguar will, of course, need to tread the line between distinctive and understated if it's going to fend off the Maserati Ghibli and take a bigger slice of the pie away from the likes of the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Lexus GS and Infiniti Q70, the Cadillac CTS and the upcoming new Volvo S90.
