1985 Jaguar Xj6 Sedan, Sold With No Reserve on 2040-cars

Year:1985 Mileage:153117

Saint Helens, Oregon, United States

You're looking at a 1985 Jaguar XJ6 sedan. This particular one is an automatic, white with black leather interior. It's been an Oregon car for most of its life, and it currently has 153k miles on the body and roughly 40k on the 4.2 I6 engine. It's my daily driver, so the mileage is increasing weekly. Selling as my new daily driver (a Rover P6) is finally roadworthy.

Condition-wise... it's in pretty good original condition The paint looks good with no peeling, the seats are in great condition, and the carpets/headliner/wood are perfect. It's in excellent daily driver condition; I wouldn't hesitate to drive it absolutely anywhere. I've completed several 500+ mile trips in it with no problems. However, in order to make it a show car, it does need a couple of things. Firsty, the windshield is cracked (see pic), the A/C doesn't work (compressor comes on, air doesn't blow cold), there's a 1" surface rust spot just below the windshield, and the passenger seat has a 1" rip in it.The paint is also quite stone chipped on the front valance.

In the last few months, it's had both front and rear brakes, new wires/plugs and lifetime K&N air filter, fluids change about 500 miles ago incl cooling system flush / new thermostat, and a new battery (the old one was from 1996!). The previous owner told me the engine had been replaced with a rebuilt unit at roughly 110k miles; the gearbox is the original BW66 unit. It starts, runs, drives, and stops just fine. The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears, the car starts first time every time and has good oil pressure both hot and cold. Uprated KYB shocks and newer bushings all round. Custom straight-through exhaust system. Currently running without the air pump hooked up, though parts for this can be included if required.

Electrically.. the lights, cruise control, heater, power windows, power door locks, power sunroof, and all the fun fuel tank switchover stuff work perfectly. It's currently got a Sony CD/MP3 stereo head unit fitted, along with 5.25" Focal component speakers in the doors and rear deck, and an Infinity Reference amp mounted under the passenger seat.

Usual stuff.. please ask any and all questions before bidding, deposit expected within 48hrs of auction end, full payment within seven days, and car must be picked up from zip code 97051. I'm more than happy to assist with storage and/or shipping if you need it.

Thanks for reading!

CMC to produce limited run of Callum's Jaguar Mark 2 [w/video]

Thu, 04 Sep 2014

We were a more than a little jealous when designer Ian Callum revealed his Jaguar Mark 2 restomod that he commissioned from Classic Motor Cars. It turns out that we weren't the only ones that dug it - the reaction was so great that CMC got Callum's permission to create a limited run of them for customers. Although, with prices quoted between £350,000 and £375,000 ($572,000 - $613,000), we doubt Ian needs to worry about seeing a copy of his creation pass him too soon.
"Within hours we had received calls from people all over the globe asking if they could buy one," said Peter Neumark, Chairman of CMC in the latest announcement. The reaction came as a surprise to Callum, who said he designed the car entirely to his own specifications and actually wasn't sure if people would like it.
Among Callum's many changes are new bumpers, wider front fenders with functional louvers and less chrome trim. Under the hood is a 4.3-liter six-cylinder fitted with two SU carbs putting out around 260 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. It should be a much better driver too, with a completely re-engineered independent rear suspension, adjustable dampers at all four corners, improved brakes and a new rack and pinion steering system designed by CMC with electric assist.

Jaguar trademarks EV-Type nameplate

Mon, 17 Nov 2014

Green may have been a popular color choice for the classic Jaguar E-Type, but even in Lightweight form (pictured above), it was hardly what you'd call environmentally friendly. Not by today's standards, anyway, with six-, eight- and twelve-cylinder engines displacing between 3.8 and 5.3 liters. But Jaguar looks to be preparing to revive the nameplate - or at least one similar - with a new electric vehicle in the works.
According to the latest intel, Jaguar has applied both in the US and in Europe to trademark the name EV-Type. The implication that it's developing an electric vehicle is clear, as is the reference to its iconic sports car of yore. But more than that, we don't know. We could be looking at an electric version of the current F-Type, a project to convert original E-Types to electric power or a different model altogether.
It wouldn't be the first time, of course, that we'd see Jaguar toying with the idea of electric propulsion. A couple of years ago, the British automaker demonstrated a plug-in hybrid XJ_e prototype, and showcased both the C-X16 and C-X75 concepts with advanced hybrid powertrains. But it has yet to put any such system into production, relying instead on the small diesels it sells in Europe to keep its carbon footprint small.

Jaguar XFR-S pitted against Mercedes E63 AMG

Wed, 21 Aug 2013

It was Steve Sutcliffe at Autocar who got the tough job of comparing the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG to the limited edition Jaguar XFR-S on the track and sheep-strewn British B-roads. In UK spec both Mephistophelean sedans wrangle the same 542 horsepower, but step out of the corral and things look to weigh heavily in the Mercedes' favor: it has more torque, it's lighter, it's quicker from 0-to-60 and it's less expensive.
But that's on paper. Sutcliffe was given the job to see what effect all those letters and numbers had on the real-world driving experience. One of them is "an absolute hoot at the track" with great steering and weight management, one is "magnificent." To find out which is which, watch the video below.
