Re: 1994 XJ81, Black Betty

Thanks for the comments and input. I'm looking forward to getting her running like a top. So I purchased some Sachs front and rear shocks, and don't think I have the correct ones for the rear. This is for a XJ81, build date 2/93, without SLS and without sportspack suspension as best I can tell. VIN ...

1994 XJ81, Black Betty

Hello, proud new owner of a '94 XJ81 in black/cream (PDH/NDR)! 82,100 miles. Build date 2/93, VIN ending 682205. All USA XJ81s seem to be designated as 1994 model years regardless of build date, which causes some confusion. Mine has the driver's side airbag only. This one predates the rear suspensio...

Feb, 2013 build date but it seems all USA XJ12s are called 1994 model year. This one has the driver's airbag only. Anyway, ...

Re: Famous Jaguars

Season 3 of Narcos, released on Netflix earlier this month. White XJ40 in scene behind Columbian Cali cartel drug lord Gilberto Rodríguez Orejuela. In the episode, Orefurla was arrested the day after this scene. He was arrested June, 1995 in real life. https://rs.rvdz.me/xj40/images/59848/59848___59...

Re: XJ40's on Autotrader

1994 XJ12 with 13,000 miles. Bit of a time capsule car. Listed on Hemmings and Craigslist, rather than Autotrader. Always makes you wonder what unknown gems are out there when you see a car "coming out of a "collection". I'm closing in on a 40, but this one's out of my budget. https:/...

Re: eBay motor bin.

A beauty. Fwiw, it's been for sale for a while on Craigslist, probably 4 or 5 months at that price.

Re: Oil in Water, XJ81.

Thank you for the responses and suggestions. I've arranged for a colleague familiar with the Jaguar V12 to go take a look and give it a good shakedown. I know a compression test is no small task. I've owned a 5.3L v12 in the past and done the plugs and cleaned the Vee. If we go for a compression tes...
