The Jaguar Xj6 was introduced by British Leyland to replace the existing, outmoded four-door sedans with a streamlined, powerful and modern design in 1968. This was founder Sir William Lyon's last and most successful design. The Xj6 remained in production until 1987, 29 years later. The model had three design series. Series III was so popular that it is in high demand for classic car restoration.

Jaguar Replacement Parts

Many OEM parts are available from the manufacturer and aftermarket restoration vendors. Original body panels, leather trim and accessory components are a premium cost. New door locks, light switches, fuses and window switches are superior to the original and improve the overall performance without devaluing your Jaguar Xj6 restoration project.

Body Restoration

The Jaguar was susceptible to rust. Make sure that you inspect the sills, windshield wells, wheel mounts and undercarriage before you decide to embark on a classic car restoration project. Replacement body panels and floor boards are available from shops that manufacture for the aftermarket as well as from used car yards.

Interior Restoration

The original leather from Connolly and wool trim carpet from Wilton is still available. To restore the headliner, replace the original with a better quality modern material.
