Footnotes

  • Formerly part of the Black family's Yorkshire Car Collection, this XJ6 passed into the ownership of Stephen Battye in 1985 when he bought the YCC Collection, which became known as the Skopos Motor Museum. While at the Museum the car was the subject of a complete restoration, which was undertaken in its Batley workshop between 1998 and 2005 under the supervision of Michael Tuero. The Skopos workshop was well thought of, undertaking work privately as well as looking after the Museum's cars. It is understood that the rebuild involved a total strip-down, body rust proofing and a bare-metal repaint, changing the colour to silver metallic. A 3.31:1 ratio rear axle with limited-slip differential was installed and by this time the car - originally a 2.8-litre model - had been upgraded with a 4.2-litre engine, manual/overdrive gearbox and 'pepper pot' wheels. Other works included refurbishment of the original interior leather; flushing and sealing the fuel tanks; rebuilding the fuel pumps; overhauling the braking and suspension systems; and renewing the tyres and battery. In July 2011 '3225 MY' passed to a new owner, being kept in warm, dry storage thereafter. Expired MoTs on file indicate that some 14,500 miles were covered between the rebuild's completion in 2005 and February 2013. The total recorded mileage at time of sale is expected to be around 60,000. The car is offered with MoT to February 2014 and Swansea V5C.
