1988 Jaguar XJ40/XJ6
This car was sold new from Gorin Jaguar in Hartford, CT and now 32 years later is just 5 mins away from that old dealership location. It was sold with 35,000 miles on it to a man from Newport RI but it didn't stay there long as the third owner purchased the XJ40 nearly 25 years ago.
He and his wife drove it regularly out for dinners, etc but it wasn't a daily driver. They put roughly 30,000 miles on it over the 20+ years they owned the car. In 2016 he passed away and the current owner was contacted to purchase it from the estate. He drove it a little and always kept it garaged like the previous owner. Knowing the previous owner, he knew the car had been well taken care of and maintained regularly.
The big cat presents very well with no rust or rot anywhere. The Arctic Blue (JEX) paint is beautiful and in some light looks almost grey metallic and in other light, really shows the light blue metallic. There are only a couple of blemishes in the paint and the bright work is very shiny and not pitted.
The interior shows some of those 76K miles, with a droopy headliner, bolster wear on the driver seat, and some wrinkling and shrinking of the leather here and there.
All of those addressable by a moderately experienced shade tree enthusiast.
The leather is JEF code Isis Blue and the interior includes power steering; 4 wheel power disc brakes; cruise control; power seats; power locks; intermittent wipers; tilt wheel; courtesy lights; rear center arm rest; rear seat heat/AC; AC (currently not operational.. recharge?); J-Gate shifter on the automatic transmission.
The 3.6L straight six sends out a strong 221HP and 240lbft through the 3 speed auto to the IRS. Despite her size, the car gets up to 60MPH in just about 9 seconds.
The car runs and drives very well, as a Jaguar should.
The brakes are a bit squishy though and may need to be bled.
A bit of a juxtaposition of very, clean, beautiful paint and great interior bits and some minor wear items that offset.
Overall, a car most of us would be proud to drive and with the low mileage, she'll last a very long time, the Jaguar AJ6 is known to run a long life, often times near to 200K miles.
With all of that, the asking price is just $5,900
