                   $7500 - O.B.O. (because of rebuilt engine)


Basic Data
·         bought from Sports Car Service Center – March, 1999; owned by Canadian couple who spent their winters here
Pluses
·         engine professionally rebuilt – June 2012 by S&CCC; maintained by S&CCC
·         low miles – 108000 actual miles; after-market speedometer replaced with correct one with 38000 more miles than actual miles so speedometer reads 146013 (10/17)
·         approximately 22000 miles since rebuild
·         daily driver, very reliable; good tyres
·         registration good until May, 2021
·         European-style bumpers – lighter, better looking
·         all lights except rear seat reading lights work
·         good after-market sound system
·         good (if noisy) air conditioner, heater
·         no body damage; all chrome present and in good/average condition
·         factory car cover and sunscreen
·         extra water pump, miscellaneous parts, badges etc.
Minuses
·         needs paint badly – clear coat peeling on hood, paint separating on edge of right rear wheel well
·         minor rust around front and rear windows
·         non-functional, non-standard moon roof
·         horn switch moved to cigarette lighter button on dashboard
·         wood fascia intact but lacquer crazed
·         interior (black) average
·         automatic lock solenoid doesn’t work
·         cruise control disabled, removed (I still have it, can be reinstalled)
·         leaks slightly at transmission seal
Having owned several XJ-6 Series II cars, I’ve formed the impression that the sheet         metal is lighter on European models than on cars intended for the US market; I know the bumpers are lighter.

$25,000 – O.B.O.                  


Basic Data
·         bought from private party in north Phoenix – March, 1998; previous owners had removed original engine (long gone), installed 1978 Mustang engine; had also removed standard transmission, replaced with barely functional automatic transmission. Insured for $25,000 with Hagerty.
Pluses
·         1998 small block Chevy crate engine professionally installed by the MG Shop soon after purchase
·         engine strong, battery good
·         Holley 4-barrel carburetor
·         low mileage (see below – estimated c. 40000 miles since new engine installed)
·         custom-designed 5-speed standard transmission installed by the MG Shop in 1999
·         all chrome removed including door handles c. 2004, sold c. 2014
·         body remodeled 2005 by Exclusive Paint & Body to accommodate recessed, covered headlights (not standard); Toyota front turn signals; Cadillac rear turn signals (both pivot)
·         suspension good
·         interior is dark blue, in average condition; seats reupholstered
·         nothing leaks
Minuses
·         needs to have the cowl and the rear hatch repainted (rest of the car repainted by Southwest Collision – January, 2016)
·         needs front end alignment badly
·         needs new tires (tires are old; misalignment has caused uneven wear on left front tire)
·         steering is very stiff; turn radius is very wide (c. 30+ feet)
·         odometer, map light, interior light do not work
·         headliner is average, slightly stained
·         there is no emergency brake (I have a set of the missing parts – very hard to get). Reinstallation of the handbrake strongly recommended as there are no bumpers to protect body work should the car stall on an incline and not restart immediately)
