1973 Jaguar XJ6

This is a fantastic find, a true one owner 1973 Jaguar XJ6. Bought new at Weber and Cooper British Leyland in Ventura, Ca,where it has lived it’s whole life. It was ordered in the unusual color of Signal Red a color more associated with E Types than the more sedate sedan. The paint is all original and still presents very well there is a ding on the front fender from the garage door and other small imperfections but it is in such great original condition it would be a shame to touch it. So of course this car is completely free from rust and accident damage. The interior is all original and the black hide is undamaged and nicely patinated it might benefit from a light dye but we will let the next custodian make this decision, the dash is beautiful and presents very well the wood is very good also. Overall this car has survived remarkably well having spent spent most of it’s life tucked up in a warm garage and only used for highdays and holidays. The owner was a well known local photojournalist so it still sports it’s CB radioantenna, it also had California Press Photographer licence plates so the plates on the car are for display only if sold in California it will be issued with new plates whenregistered Mechanically the car is great, we replaced the front shock, changed the oil, flushed the cooling system and replaced a couple of hoses.The car is on an old matching set of Michelins that will need to be replaced please take that in to account when bidding . It could probably use further mechanical improvement having not been used much in the last 25 years, but the engine, transmission and brakes seem superb, and as usual a mechanical check is both welcome and encouraged. These early SWB XJ6s are becoming increasingly rareespecially with the original engines they are also undervalued and offer fantastic value for money. Finding one with this provenance and condition is rare indeed.Please feel free to ask any questionsan inspection can be arrangedwe can arrange shipping anywhere in the world at competetive ratesall internet sales as is where is Look at our Feedback and bid with confidence!!!
