Another Small Block V8: 1974 Jaguar XJ6

The Jaguar XJ6 is one of the legendary sports luxury sedan of the ’70s that every man (or woman) who considers himself a motorhead should own some day. The highway manners were particularly noteworthy, close your eyes and you could hardly tell you were moving — something that couldn’t be said for many of the domestic offerings of the day, While offered in Europe with a wide range of lesser (smaller displacement) engines, the US version was given the the venerable 4.2 litre inline-6, an engine that is not without its charm…but…is frequently tossed aside for a domestic V8 because the inline-6 is an expensive thing to maintain. Find this 1974 Jaguar XJ6 offered for $6,500 in Northridge, CA via craigslist.
