DESCRIPTION

1986 Jaguar XJ6 Sedan



A 21-year-old with an eye for business William Lyons joined forces with motorcycle sidecar specialist William Walmsley in 1922 to form the Swift Sidecar & Coach Building Co based in Blackpool, England. Five years later they expanded into cars, producing bodies for the Austin Seven two-seater, followed by a sedan version in 1928 the same year the company moved to what would become a famous home in Coventry. Its first proper cars were the 1931 SS1 and SS2 low-bodied, long-bonneted models and the company changed its name to SS Cars in 1934. An open-seater variant called the SS1 Tourer was the first taste of motorsport, competing in the 1933 Alpine Trial.



For consignment, a Jaguar XJ6 with a shorter wheelbase and 6-cylinder engine. Bathed in creamy white, this luxury cruiser was for those who could not afford the upcoming V-12 version but wanted the prestige of owning a Jaguar. A leather appointed interior with some burl to boot, and a 4.2 Liter 6-cylinder, you can still arrive in style, just play it up a bit!



Exterior

Very straight 98 percent rust free steel panels adorn the exterior of this car. They are covered in Cream paint which the consignor stated is all original and is also in decent condition. From its long front swept "bonnet" which is flanked by aerodynamic fenders with dual round headlights on either side, and a centered grille, to its "boot" aerodynamics were always in mind. Plenty of shiny chrome and brite work adorn this car at the bumpers, grille, drip moldings and window surrounds. Even chrome tipped dual exhaust pipes are seen peeking out from under the shiny rear bumper. Brilliant!



Interior

Pop open the doors and you are met with a nice combination of patina wood, straight flat design, and classy, finely aged with time leather buckets up front. The center console houses the power window switches, and a petite "T" shift lever reminiscent of the '60's. Also noted are plenty of toggles, and wheeled controls for temperature, fan speeds and air ducting. A couch-like bench seat with 2 distinct seating areas is seen stretching across the spacious back passenger compartment. Headliner is nice and tight and surrounds the power sunroof and carpeting to match seats is in good condition. A shout out to the burl dash which is just beautifully preserved with just a few faults. Bob's your uncle!



Drivetrain

A 4.2 Liter DOHC Inline 6 sits comfortably in the nicely presenting engine bay. It is fed a fuel and air mixture Lucas/Bosch L Jetronic EFI. Attached to the back of this engine is a BW-66 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly. The rear axle shows in 2.88 gear configuration.



Undercarriage

Clean, rust free, and sturdy, and covered in an undercoat, no signs of any invasive rust here. Power disc brakes for all 4 corners, as well as independent coil springs all around.



Drive-Ability

Popping in it fired right up and on the test track it performed well. I noticed that there is a squealing from the engine drive belts and substantial noise from the front suspension when going over bumps.



A taste of luxury and Jaguar power, this classic saloon starts quickly, shifts smoothly, and puts on a nice showing dressed in its "cracking", (not cracked!), Cream with nice chrome. Interior has creature comforts, and a nicely preserved wood dash panel with plenty of gauges and toggle switches. Early British luxury with a very smooth ride.
