10k: Beauty Is A Beast: 1973 Jaguar XJ6 w Chevy V8

The series I Jaguar XJ was one of the last Jag saloons to have design input from the man known as Mr Jaguar, Sir William Lyons.  The series I was launched in 1968 and produced through 1973 and the only thing stopping you from driving one every day is the cost of maintenance of the original Jag inline-6 or V12….but not today.  Find this 1973 Jaguar XJ6 w Chevy V8 for sale in Mountain View, CA for $9,800 via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

In all seriousness, the XJ is a strikingly handsome sedan and looks regal in this shade of crème fraîche with just a hint of hollandaise sauce.  Just looking at it makes me hungry.

Pop the bonnet and find a 350 cubic inch American V8; a carburetted and chromed cap pistol ready to fire up and launch this creamy boat like a sprinter off the blocks. 

The inside reveals a spindly little smokie on a toothpick automatic transmission shifter that you will shift with two fingers, pinky extended.
