bought my IFS and IRS donor car today!

Today I bought a 1976 Jaguar XJ-6 Complete car for the very fair price of $375.00 it has the original engine transmission and 146k miles.

What do you guys think!!

IMO, a good buy. Should be able to get the parts you need and make a profit on selling other parts.

Think you got a bargain and should be able to recope and profit with the body parts, looks very rust free.

The hood doesn't seem to shut quite right and the rear door and quarter panel don't seem to match the rest of the car. Other than that it looks OK.

Oh yeah, for $375 you got a pretty good deal. You should be able to sell the parts you don't need and break even. The IFS won't cost you a dime.

All the removable panels are rust free but the rear quarters are rusted from it sitting under a lean to for the past few years. I hope to get as much sold as possible before the boss starts pushing me to get it out of the driveway and I have to take it to the scrap yard!

Congratulations, good find! You have a series 2 XJ. It should have the 4 piston (not 3 piston) front caliper brakes with vented disks. Given the mileage, you will want to check the IFS for wear/rebuild. It may have gone thru rebuild.

That's a good price, just a notch more than scrap value. How could you go wrong?!

a funny thought came to me. Somewhere on a Jag forum they are staying this is a travesty, it should be saved and restored. Someone rescue that XJ-6 from those rat rod cannibals.

I assume that you are going to use the Jag IRS?
I am in the process of putting one in my son's 63 F100 right now. We are using the front IFS and the rear IRS in his truck.
Snow White LTD in northern California has a nice mounting kit for the IRS. It is kind of pricey but it makes it an easy install.

I used their kit that has the 3" drop in the center and I should have use the straight crossmember. The rear sits lower than the front so now I am in the process of cutting it back out and raising the frame up higher to compensate for the proper ride height. If you are want to notch the front crossmember into the frame, you could get the truck lower. I had oil pan clearance problems so I needed to raise the back up a little.

The IRS is a Spicer rear end and Dana 44 gears can be put in the rear so you have a pretty good choice of gears to use.

Kevin

That is a very good price, I had to pay couple hundred more for a '83 couple of years ago. Unfortunately not much demand for jag parts around here, still have some good parts even a running motor.

Took some time today to start on the tear down of the jag today. pretty simple so far I plan on getting the suspension out from under it by next weekend. I plan on keeping the following parts for myself to try and graph into my F-1;
IFS
IRS
Power steering system
Steering column
Seats
mirrors
fuel doors
wiper assembly
Center consul
brake and gas pedals
windshield washer system

I would feel worse about tearing this car apart if it had been a running and driving car but it has sat for the past 10+ years and from what I can see the only thing wrong with it was the starter solenoid. The starter just clicks when you turn the key but if you jump the started with a remote starter switch the starter turns the engine over. the fuel in the tanks is disgusting so I didn't try to get it running. here are a few pictures of what I got done today!!
