The launch of the Jaguar XJ6 in 1968 redefined expectations in the luxury car sector. The new model effectively 'moved the goalposts' setting new standards for comfort, handling and refinement. A waiting list was quick to form and enthusiasm remained strong upon the introduction of the Series II cars in 1973. The standard or long wheelbase saloon models were joined later that same year by a striking new variant, an elegant pillarless coupe. Available with either the 4.2 litre straight six XK unit or the fabulous 5.3 litre V12, this handsome design retained the saloon's all round independent coil and wishbone suspension, disc brakes and power steering. Performance was predictably strong with both variants reputedly able to exceed 120mph.
Finished in Lavender with blue leather, this automatic transmission example was restored by the vendor between 2018 and 2020 and currently displays some 79,000 miles. Work undertaken includes the fitment of new inner and outer sills, new front and rear wings, fuel tanks, exhaust system, discs, pads and calipers whilst the suspension has been overhauled. A new vinyl roof and new carpets have also been fitted. A bare metal repaint was carried out with the “rust free” underside being waxoyled whilst the engine has been checked over and serviced. Offered with its bookpack and numerous expired MOT's, it is said to have “very good” bodywork, paintwork, engine and transmission with “good” interior. The vendor informs us a fresh MoT will be obtained in time for the sale.
PLEASE NOTE: Has a New MOT until October 2021.
