XJ40 1988

Postby saueer » Mon Feb 12, 2018 10:14 am

Hi guys,

This is my Xj6 2.9 1988, I always dreamed about xj40 and finally got it. It requires some minor painting job, but drive like a new one.

Welcome Saueer!

Your car looks good in the photos, don't worry most have their niggles so it's just time, patience and some money of course. I think a weekend ride car that's well maintained shouldn't ruin your pocket once it's kept up to date. I had a 2.9 with a 3.6 conversion and it managed to get me hooked on the 40! The 2.9s are becoming quite rare so look after her, some had timing chain issues but good maintenance is the cue, you should be ok. The lattice wheels really suit the silver paint. See if she behaves reasonably for some time and then consider the cosmetic issues. ;)

Really nice looking example, good to see an earlier car quietly proud of coming the distance and still going. Enjoy getting to know her and you better believe if you run into trouble somebody here will have done it before, there really is some unique help available here. The usual fee is some pictures of the offence!

Lovely looking car, more pics please! (engine bay and interior!) keen to learn more about the 2.9 cars.

Does it have that lush tweed interior? :D
