Seller Submission: 1988 Jaguar XJ6 LT1 Swap

This next car comes as a seller submission from MK who writes: “I’m selling a low buck ‘cool’ car that might resonate with the DT crowd. It’s an 88 XJ6 that I swapped an LT1 into. I used a Jaguar Specialties mounting kit with an LT1/4l60 out of a 95 Impala SS. It’s a fun car, but I need to focus on my other 80’s project. No hard feelings if this isn’t the right fit for the site.” I would have hard feelings if I DIDN’T feature this car because it fits DT like a glove!! Find this 1988 Jaguar XJ6 LT1 Swap offered for $5000 in Detroit, MI via craigslist.

odometer: 56000

V8 swapped! Drivetrain out of a 1995 Impala SS. Freshened LT1 with high lift cam and 1.6 ratio roller tip rockers. Rebuilt 4L60 with C4 shift accumulator for firmer shifts. I also have the CATS LT1 tuning kit that comes with car and a few other extras. Fun car but it’s time to sell. Trying to focus on another ’80’s vehicle project. Runs and drives great, needs a few details sorted to complete the project.

Price is 5000 OBO. Make me an offer. I would love to see this car go to a fellow enthusiast.
