Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1968 the Jaguar XJ6 set new standards for luxury cars and spawned more than a dozen variants over the next 20 years, including the iconic 12 cylinder cars. This book guides you systematically though 3 different series of production, 4 engines and long or short wheelbase saloons or coupes, pointing out faults common to all versions as well as some specific to each model. Working via initial quick-check guidance and then in detail, step-by-step, through the strengths and weaknesses of your potential purchase, you’ll avoid buying a bad example and maximize the value and enjoyment you get out of your investment in one of motoring’s landmark cars. The book also points you towards the major players in the Jaguar community to help you maintain and improve your Jaguar. Packed with 100 new detail pictures and with a unique points system this book is truly ESSENTIAL for any potential XJ6 owner.

Synopsis:

This unique book will help you work through the long list of XJ variants to choose the one that best suits your budget and intended use. Full of practical first-hand tips and pictures to guide even a novice through all the stages of becoming a Jaguar or Daimler saloon owner. Packed with 100 new detail pictures, and with a unique points system to assess the condition of potential purchases, this book is a must for any potential XJ6 owner.

About the Author

With two E-type books to his credit, Peter Crespin has many years experience working on his own Jaguars. These include classic and modern cars and he currently runs a 1974 Series 2 Daimler as a daily driver. A frequent contributor to various technical internet forums, he has four decades experience of building and occasionally racing classic bikes and working on classic cars from his well-equipped workshop. A medical writer by profession, he turns his analytical talents to task of sorting through the three series, four engine sizes and three body styles of the XJ Jaguars sold from 1968 to 1986.
