Blocked At Work: 1972 Jaguar XJ6
My 7 year old daughter saw a picture of this next car on my computer screen and asked me a few questions. What kind of car is that Daddy? It is a Jaguar...with a Chevy V8. Oh, why is it on those pieces of wood? Umm...it is kinda broken. Ok, so are you going to buy it? Find this 1972 Jaguar XJ6 offered for $1000 near Los Angeles, CA via craigslist.
The series 1 Jaguar XJ was released in 1968 with the blessing of Jaguar's founder Sir William Lyons who is quoted as calling the XJ "the finest Jaguar ever made." Today's example isn't something that a Jaguar purist or concours judge will enjoy...BUT, it certainly gets this VA born car lover smiling.
