LS1 converted Jaguar XJ6C sells
for $103K !!!
That's right- it's not a misprint. A 1975 Jaguar XJ6C with a full boat Jaguar
Specialties LS1 conversion was sold on June 8, 2017 on Bring-A-Trailer
for $103k. That is at least 2-3 times the highest price ever achieved for
similar condition cars still using the Jag drivetrain. Some pictures of the
car are below and this was indeed a nice example, built by the owner of a
higher end auto body and paint shop in Los Angeles (our customer). The owner built this car for himself to enjoy,
but also to showcase the capabilities of his shop. Even though I'm based in Northern California, I've been down to
see this car in person several times and all I can say is the pics don't do it
justice. And the performance is rocket-like, far greater than the capability
of the stock size tires to put it down.
This is a fantastic, timeless design, now finally with real power to back it
up. But it's also a sleeper- smooth, vibration-free, quiet idle- no hint as to
what is under the hood. Until the driver puts the pedal down and brings that
LS power to bear.......
One important point to realize about this car is that (besides
the GM LS1 drivetrain) it is otherwise almost completely standard, down to the
original chrome steel wheels. Why is this important? Virtually no custom parts (aside from the LS engine
conversion pieces from Jaguar Specialties) means that any end user or shop could build one
themselves and get similar results.
All of our conversions are this way- requiring virtually no fabrication on the
part of the customer and leaving the Jaguar itself otherwise standard.
