The 1994-1997 generation of the Jaguar XJ was the first XJ made during Ford's ownership of the company, but it kept the traditional straight-six engine that Jaguar buyers had come to expect during the previous decades. The stretched XJ6L was the plutocrat-oriented model, and it's rare to find one of these in the junkyard. This one was spotted in a San Francisco Bay Area self-service yard a few weeks ago.



The interior in this car is still very plush, but a wreck ended its career.



The 4.0-liter straight-six in this car made a respectable 322 horsepower, which was needed to move the XJ6L's 4,110 pounds.



List price on this car was $59,400, or about $90,000 in 2017 dollars. That's about a grand less than a new 1997 BMW 740i and about $15k less than the price tag on a new Mercedes-Benz S420. You got a lot of luxury for your dollar (or pound) with the XJ6L.


Sure, Ford owns the company, but look at the history!
