Stock #: 3841-DFW Exterior Color: Champagne Interior Color: Beige Body Type: Sedan Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic Drivetrain: RWD Engine: 383 Stroker V8 Title Condition: Clear This striking 1983 Jaguar XJ6 Restomod neatly cures all of the Jag's shortcomings without impeding on any of that wonderful British style, most notably with a Chevy 383 stroker engine borrowed from a Corvette. It's faster, more efficient, easier to service, and most importantly, more reliable. Add in a smooth-shifting 700R4 transmission, choice options, and that unmistakable British bodywork and you have an all-season, reliable Jag that simply works like you'd expect.
The long, sinuous lines of the XJ6 have aged gracefully and they're still cars that look like they should cost thousands more than they do. The shape should look familiar to anyone who has been paying attention to cars for the past 40 years or so, and quite honestly, it still works. Modern Jaguars are, well, modern, but this car has elegance, sophistication, and a bespoke confidence that the new designs just can't match. The glossy champagne paint emphasizes the sedan's formality, and as you'd expect, it's deep and lustrous in a way that modern finishes just can't quite match. The car has obviously been well-maintained and remained out of the elements for most of its life, and even though it's more than 36 years old, it shows only modest signs of use. One of the appealing things about British cars in particular is their use of chrome; it's not big and heavy like the Americans seem to prefer, but rather tasteful accents that feel substantial. Touch the door handles and they somehow feel heavy, the upright grille infers quiet confidence, and the bright trim around the windows has an old-fashioned elegance that's missing today. It's not perfect, but very nice none the less, turning heads everywhere it goes with an air of graceful confidence typically reserved for British royalty.
Interiors are a specialty of the British, and Jaguars in particular have an immaculate blend of luxury and sport that's been their appeal from the very beginning. The handsome beige leather bucket seats remain in excellent condition, with only minor signs of use even on the driver's seat. Plush carpets are eminently tasteful and give the interior a hushed feeling that's hard to articulate but you'll notice it the moment you climb in. All the wood that you see is real wood, not some plastic facsimile, and again, a few tasteful bits of chrome make all the difference. Of course, you also get many of the accessories available in 1983, including power windows and locks, tilt wheel, automatic climate control, and a fantastic-sounding Alpine AM/FM/CD that was neatly installed into the dash. Overhead there's a sunroof, and the rear seat and door panels are in great shape as well, with very little wear to speak of. And as a grand tourer, this Jag includes a spacious trunk that's outfitted to stock and includes a full-size spare tire and matching rim.
The XJ6's original 4.2L Inline 6 was a decent performer, but service was outrageously expensive and good luck finding a reliable guy to fix it for you for anything under a mortgage payment. So instead, someone expertly and seamlessly installed a Corvette 350 V8, which was rebuilt to a 383 stroker approximately 5k miles ago. Reported to be a complete Lunati roller with a Scat steel crank and Sportsman heads, it produces a lot more horsepower than the original block, so performance is awesome. It's a neat fit under the car's long bonnet and features several common performance goodies like an MSD ignition, so you can find parts just about anywhere. In fact, the whole installation looks quite OEM in execution (thanks in large part to how the great the dual-snorkeled air cleaner), which is the highest praise we can pay an engine swap like this. The aforementioned 700R4 automatic transmission powers the Jag's original independent rear end, which also means the supple yet athletic suspension remains intact. A custom dual exhaust system sounds a lot different than the original, (and it sounds killer) but otherwise there's no way to spot the conversion without opening the hood, a very neat trick. Vintage chrome Azev wheels are in excellent shape and wrapped in 215/55/16 Michelin radials.
A clever upgrade that makes this car eminently usable, even as a daily driver. If you're tired of the same-old, same-old, this awesome Jag is a sure-fire cure. Call today!

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on eBay. That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $199 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to eBay listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel bids/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your eBay Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making bids/offers. SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase.

CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.

AS-IS: All vehicles are sold "AS IS" and with no warranties expressed or implied. If you choose to waive inspection, do plan to have a detailed and transparent conversation with us regarding the vehicle's condition. Ask the hard questions up front. Please just call us, we are here to help and welcome all your questions!

We cannot be responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by the consignor/seller of the vehicle.
