1988 Jaguar XJ6 3.6L from North America
This car is a fantastic luxury bargain!
To say at the very least, the 1988 Jaguar XJ6 - 4 door sedan is quite a find. I wanted to replace my other car, a 1989 Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo, in wonderful condition, (124,000 miles on the engine) only because I needed a 4 door sedan instead of a 2 door coupe.
Also, I always wanted a Jaguar, in particular, the 1988 XJ6.
Upon buying the Jaguar XJ6 there were a few things to deal with such as it needed to have a new rack and pinion and also new front gas shocks installed.
The paint is very good with the exception of 5 "silver-dollar rust spots on the body panels due to the fact that the previous owner did not care for the body correctly, most likely during winter months. Which is a little confusing because the paint which is a beautiful glossy "British Racing Green" color looks fantastic otherwise.
I have also spent under $60.00 for new hub caps (the old caps' paint has faded off.
This car is 90% back to it's original condition from when it was new. I bought the car at about 75% original condition. After the body work is completed and the paint up to par, I will be showing it off more.
A very interesting thing is that where we live in Illinois, there have only been two instances in the last two years where I have seen this type of car.
Let me tell you, this Jaguar, even in it's present condition, which is good, is a real head-turner. People definitely look and are curious as to it's nature and what type of vehicle it is. Especially when I turn at a street corner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
