Dear all

Yesterday I saw an XJ6 with an estate back end. Was this ever released or has someone chopped around with it? It had the double headlights and looked like an early 90's model with a private plate. Very strange to look at, but quite nice all the same. Must have a huge boot.

Jonathan:

I read about these in a book ages and ages ago. IIRC, this was a shooting brake conversion offered by a small coachbuilding company, whose name escapes me. I'll come back if I remember.

A company caalled "Vicarage" or similar there were a few made. I think they also from the wheels up re-build of S types and E types.

Avon made a few XJ6 estates which looked very odd - could have been one of those. The Lynx Eventer XJS on the other hand was lovely, and Jaguar should have taken the hint and offered it as a production model - these cars still fetch big money compared with an ordinary XJS of the same age.

I searched with google.co.uk and cape up with naff all! Must try another country's version.

This vehicle looks to have come with the optional 2-tone white paint (front end a different shade!)

I snapped an XJ40 shooting break at Blackbushe about a month ago. Have now made it the photo for the XJ40 in the car by car breakdown.

Never seen an XJ6 Estate. The Lynx Eventer as mentioned by Richard Hall was the bizzo. Interestingly enough there was a Rolls Royce Estate, (Shooting Brake), around in Hillingdon Middlesex in the early to mid seventies, if my forty something mind is correct!
