Product Description

Review

For some marques, there are books galore to read and also the advice that members of clubs happily provide. It can be confusing and sometimes it's useful to have a reference source that cuts to the chase. Very useful little books, they make essential buying for owners, would be or otherwise. - Australian Classic Car -

The guide takes you through all aspects from first thoughts to a look at any restoration that might lie ahead. The cover price will only be a very small proportion of what you are paying, so the booklet is a good investment. - The Automobile -

This powerful little book could just save a buyer a fortune in heartache and repair bills. The author's an expert in Series 1, 2 and 3 XJs and his practical advice is easy to understand and extremely useful. Even if you know your Jaguars, you will find things in here to use. - Jaguar magazine -

About the Author

With two E-type books to his credit, Peter Crespin has many years' experience working on his own Jaguars, which include classic and modern cars and a 1974 Series 2 Daimler used as a daily driver. A frequent contributor to various technical internet forums, Peter has four decades' experience of building and occasionally racing classic bikes and working on classic cars from his well-equipped workshop. A medical writer by profession, he turns his analytical talents to the task of sorting through the three series, four engine sizes and three body styles of the XJ Jaguars sold from 1968 to 1992.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather Disappointed 1 Jun. 2014
By Arf Arf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First of all, this book is small. About the size of a standard paperback. I should have noted the product size as I was expecting a larger format. However, the size is not really the issue. This book seems to just skim the surface. Most of it is dedicated to evaluating a used vehicle for purchase, and the advice is fairly generic. There is little that deals with the XJ's specifically. I couldn't easily find out what the model years changes very over the line up either. It's "alright" a bit pricey with not a lot of detail though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jam Packed 26 May 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As the owner of a 1986 Jaguar XJ6, I regularly get questions from folks interested in buying one. Now, I no longer have to go into great detail about my experiences and what to look for in a good used model. This book does it for me.

Although this book originates in Britain, it covers North American cars as well. It is jam packed with tidbits of information about all facets of these elegant but not-so-trouble-free autos. The book is handily broken out into sections detailing such things as questions to ask before viewing the car, what to look for while doing a quick walk-around and what to check during a more in-depth inspection. All the well-known (and not so well known) trouble-spots are covered and clear, colorful pictures illustrate these areas. As the title says, all Series are covered and the information within spotlights the differences in them.

Although the book may seem a bit skimpy for the price, it's well worth it. For anyone considering buying a used XJ6, XJ12 or Soveriegn, it's better to spend $20 on this book and get a good car than thousands on a bottomless money pit of a junker.
