      same car is on eBay as well:
      1976 XJ6C

    From the EBay listing: "Number of Cylinders: 8"

    I guess this guy has seen so many V-8 swapped XJ6s that he thinks his must have 8 cylinders too. Anyway, nice to see an unmolested example. $50K? I have yet to see that.

      Actually, I have. Craigslist listing on a pristine restoration: green over black. V-12 model IIRC. Somewhere out west, bay area maybe? Been on sale for months, I doubt the seller'll get what he's asking, but the price hasn't come down.

    I've never seen an XJ coupe go for over $15K (stock and unrestored), but if someone is willing to buy mine in very similar condition to the one above for $50K, I'll gladly take the money and never look back. Actually, I'd do the same for just $10K.

    Hagarty is showing the value of these coupes to be flatlined as always and a concours quality #1 car at a market value of about $27K. I'd like to see the $50K examples he speaks of.

    My guess is that this car will not reach its (likely unrealistic) reserve. Unless the seller is aware of actual values, set a rational reserve, and is just blowing smoke to get the ill-informed to bid. Doubt it.

      As expected, it didn't make $50K. Bidding ended at $6K, so I guess the reserve was unrealistic. This car could maybe pull a little more, but that figure is about right for current market.
