LeSabertothTiger posted this at the Cohort without any identification. Gee; I wonder why? So now it’s up to you so that we can end the mystery and give this car its rightful name.
My first thought when I saw this was Autobianchi A112 but the bonnet is too long. Unless it’s a separated front clip but even then I’m still not sure.
It’s a Jaguar XJ-6, with the small grille.
Great eyes. That below-bumper grille says series 3. I wonder if it still has its fuel tanks.
Not if Keith got there first.I’ve not read about his XJ6 for a long time
Really? An XJ6 with only two headlights?
You can only see two headlights because the wings (fenders) are missing. If you look up pictures of the XJ from a similar view and you cover the outer headlights, the remaining part will look like this.
Actually, compare and contrast the car on this site with the one in the picture:
My brain only partly wants to see it, but I will take your word for it! The outer power bulge on the hood of the XJ seems to taper more abruptly than it does in the photo above, but that must be simply the angle of the photo.
Wow , that was fast ! .
(hope you’re managing O.K. Paul)
Wow, it looks so different without the fenders and main headlights! I was originally thinking much smaller car but the fan looks huge, now it makes sense.
Could it be Keith Thelen’s Jag that we stopped hearing about? 🙂
XJ6 Series two
You can see the original design is inspired upon Renault’s world famous R4 model ! LOL
Lol, I thought the exact same thing!
A Land Rover. The classic Baby Blue & White Edition.
That looks like a Gilbern Invader Mk 1, and it appears to be in sad shape, but if it is the Jaguar, so be it.
Whatever it is my eye is naturally drawn to the SIII Land Rover beyond it!
Gilbern Invader. Dutch 1960 has beaten me to it!
Guys, this is 100% an S2 XJ Jag, I worked on enough of those to recognize them at first sight…
I got this on first sight too, definitely a Jag. Only reason I know it is I actually got perplexed by the same hood(err bonnet) randomly laying on top of a Focus at a junkyard, a dozen or so rows down from it I stumbled across a bonnetless XJ6 and my questions were answered.
Jaguar sedan, missing the front wings…
1966 Dacia Sandero in right-hand drive.
