1981 Jaguar XJ6 Series III 4.2 Automatic

This stunning Jaguar XJ6 has to be the finest example we have had the pleasure of owning. This wonderful motor car has only covered 34000 miles and has been owned by several of our long term regular customers. The car has also proven faultless to drive, ultra reliable and over the years has been driven to us from Northern Ireland and when we last sold XJ6, we drove it to Oxfordshire where it performed perfectly. Sony Broadcast Ltd in Hampshire bought this car brand new from Jaguar and for two years the car was used by one of the Company's Managing Directors. In 1993, Sony actually gave the car to the then widow of the former Managing Director as a gift. The vehicle had only covered around 15,000 miles and was only used briefly in 1984 before being dry stored for twelve years.

In 1996 one of the owner's sons then put the car back on the road taking the mileage to 24,000 before the car finally sold in 2009. In 1996-1997 over £2000 was spent on re-commissioning which included the replacement of fuel tanks, fuel pump, fuel filter and new exhaust system and in 2008, the Jaguar was treated to some substantial brake work. We sold the Jaguar in 2011 to a local customer has covered 7000 miles in five years, taking the mileage over 32000. During his ownership around £1300 was spent on maintenance and servicing. The Jaguar was a delight to own and has essentially been faultless over the five years. Since then the XJ6 has been with a regular customer of ours in Northern Ireland and most recently an Oxfordshire based customer who regularly changes his classics.

On the road the Jaguar is just delightful as you would expect with such little mileage. The engine is perfect and the car cruises with ultimate comfort and luxury. All the electrics work including the clock, the car is just outstanding. The car comes with a complete tool kit and comprehensive history file including many invoices and MOT certificates dating back to 1997. The Jaguar is beautifully presented with excellent bodywork, lovely paintwork, an exceptional detailed engine bay and truly outstanding original upholstery, almost as new. This is car for the discerning buyer and will be hard to repeat.
