One Classy Cat 1972 Series 1 Jaguar Xj-6 on 2040-cars
Portland, Connecticut, United States
Originally sold in IL, this 1972 Series 1 Jaguar XJ-6 saloon then came to NY where it resided for several years. It may have passed through a couple more owners before coming to the current owner here in CT. He purchased it in VT but did not get to register her as he had a skiing accident which left him unable to drive her.
The car is a 1972 Jaguar XJ-6 and has about 113,000 miles on her. She has been repainted in the original Signal Red color and was taken down to bare metal as most of the paint thickness photos show. The red shows rather well. There are a couple of minor nicks. Original glass and and black leather interior. Leather needs some softener, conditioner and TLC. She is numbers matching and runs and drives well. Recent work includes brakes, master cylinder and a power steering rack. She has power windows and A/C that blows cool.
This is one very classy Cat and she needs a new home. Please help us find someone to adopt her.
Adoption fees are less than $6000
Please contact me with any questions, to schedule a time to see her or to make an offer.

Chris Harris is back on the job, taking on really really difficult car questions like: Which enormously sexy and good-to-drive, high-performance convertible is the top of the heap? As one of the hottest cars in the luxury space right now, the Jaguar F-Type S is, of course, in on the action. Competition comes in the form of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster and the Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Sun-loving CEOs who despise test-driving need look no further.
Scroll on below for a fully featured (with a running time of more than 20 minutes) comparison video. Harris does his best to entertain - in a typically nitpicky and made-up-British-words fashion - and the moving pictures are lovely to look at. Kick back, pour a pint and get your weekend started off right.
The upcoming line of compact 3 Series-fighters from Jaguar, often referred to as the Jaguar XS, could consist of a sedan, wagon and possibly a coupe and GT model (think BMW 5 Series GT). The car's all-aluminum architecture also will provide the basis for two new sports utility vehicles. Just how important is the much-touted "baby Jag" project to parent company Jaguar Land Rover? A JLR executive reportedly says the brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS, codenamed X760, Autocar reports.
The brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS.
"If the X760 fails, it will probably be the end for the [Jaguar] brand," the executive says. But Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar's global brand director, claims Jaguar will "build the most advanced, most efficient, most refined car in that [compact luxury sedan] segment. Not almost as good as, but better than the best in the world."
Jay Leno gets to drive a lot of nice cars, and the Jaguar F-Type V8 S he pilots in the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage is no exception. Eric Johnson, vice president of Jaguar Western Region brought the car to Leno's garage, which impresses the comedian with its 5.0-liter V8 that makes 495 horsepower, 460 pound-feet of torque and a muscle car-like roar.
But there's a surprise this episode: Leno secured a drive in the Project 7 Concept at Pebble Beach this year, and the experience was caught on video. Based on the F-Type, the Project 7 is a functional concept car that nods to Jaguar's seven wins at Le Mans and features bespoke styling cues, a special exhaust system and, perhaps most importantly, 50 more horsepower from the supercharged V8.
