It Came From eBay Hell: 1993 Jaguar XJ6 “Airport Limousine”

Jaguar XJ Seen On www.coolpicturegallery.us

In the glory days of air travel – when you could still smoke and fly without the fear of being groped and fondled by security personnel wearing latex gloves– some passengers were lucky enough to commute from the terminal to their hotel in the back of an airport limousine.

These stretched cars, with their multiple rows of seats and doors, were essentially the primitive precursor to the modern day shuttle bus.

So here we have 3.2 L Jaguar XJ6 airport limousine (really, what else would you call it?) with two extra doors and a row of three seat clumsily inserted in the middle that we found for sale on eBay UK.

The seller is eager to point out that this car, “DRIVES WELL DOSE ALL AS IT SHOULD BODY IN GOOD CONDITION FOR ITS YEAR”, though offers precious little other information.

From the odd-looking roof racks, I’d hazard a guess and say this was formerly used by a funeral home to ferry loved ones back and forth. On the plus side, it comes with a cassette player, power steering, central locking and electric windows.

On the downside it’s an extensively modified Jaguar from the early ‘90s based on twenty-year-old mechanicals. Buyers beware, indeed. I suppose its 1,500 GBP (about US$2,400) would still appeal to some if not others.

Check out our full gallery below.
