The XJ6 saloon was first announced by Jaguar in 1968, initially powered by either the familiar 4235cc XK six-cylinder engine or a new 2.8-litre economy six, the latter proving unreliable in service and therefore discontinued in 1973. An XJ12 with far more complex 5.3-litre V12 engine soon topped the range and a Daimler-badged and grilled version increased choice for Chairmen clients. Meanwhile, a two-door XJC coupe with choice of 4.2 or V12 engine joined the four-door saloons in Jaguar showrooms. It was the XJ6, however, which was to prove the mainstay of Jaguar production.
This XJ6 Series 2, a right-hand drive four-door, first left Jaguar’s Coventry factory in 1974. Since then, it is claimed that £18,000 has been spent on bodywork, interior, engine and transmission for the car to be a show-piece for Gatwick Jaguar.
Rebuilt 4.2-litre six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission are reportedly in excellent order. Indeed, apart from the chrome bumpers, which need new over-riders, and the beige leather interior, which could benefit from some minor finishing, the car still looks brand new, says the vendor. With the car are all bills and original brochures.
