A 1990 XJ6 would be the XJ40 type

Yes. Your car IS an XJ40 (this is the factory code for cars with this body style...and yes, even though the badge on the car says XJ6).
bizarre, I know.

Jaguar used the name "XJ6" for decades on cars that were quite different. Think of Ford "Mustang". The name "Mustang" has been in use since 1964. The name has stayed the same but the cars themselves have changed a lot.

Anyhow, a subframe from a "Series III" style XJ6 will not interchange with a subframe from an "XJ40" style XJ6

Welcome to the forum mgreene,

A 1990 XJ6 is also known as XJ40 (the Jaguar factory code for the vehicle). It was in production from 1986 to 1994.The subframe from the earlier model XJ6 Series III will NOT fit.

After reading this thread, I thought it was clear and resolved until I saw 12v in your post. Do you definitely have a Jaguar with a 6 cylinder engine and not a 12 cylinder?

Well, "12V" does not mean the same as "V12" and in any case the V12 Series III car was not sold in the US, nor are any parts on the V12 car ever labelled by Jaguar as "V12" (and most definitely not "12V"...) Perhaps the questioner could post a photo of his car for definite identification.

Yep definatly need a photo of the car, S111 v12 were concurrent with XJ40 until the engine bay of the ‘40 was modified to accept the V12 so it could be a grey import, but I thought the S111 V12 was delivered to the US, but I’m not an expert so open to be corrected

The Series III V12 car was marketed right to the end of 1992 in Canada (the V12 Vanden Plas) but it was never sold in the US (several of the very first v12 cars in 1979 were imported to the US but the American Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) requirements made Jaguar pull them from the US market immediately). The Canadian market had no such requirements (happily).
The XJ40 body with the V12 engine was not in any way a "grey market" car. It was officially marketed in both Canada and the US as the "XJ12".

I’m assuming that the OP is in the USA which lead to my thought that he might have a grey import S111?

Hi mgreene,

I'm having trouble opening your picture.

An image briefly flashed up of a British Racing Green (BRG) dark green Jaguar.

If that is your car, then you have an X200 S Type manufactured from 1998 through 2008

Cheers,

Nigel
