Description:

1987 Jaguar XJ6 VDP

YOU ARE LOOKING AT AN ORIGINAL RARE EXAMPLE OF A WELL CARED FOR JAGUAR XJ6 SERIES III VDP. I BOUGHT THIS VEHICLE OUT OF FLORIDA AND SPENT A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY RESTORING THE VEHICLE TO ORIGINAL CONDITION WHICH CAN BE SEEN WITH ITS RECENT FIRST PLACE IN THE JCSNE 2016 (JUNE) CONCOURS DE ELEGANCE (DRIVEN DIVISION) . BUT THIS CAR WAS ALREADY A PRIZE WINNER BEFORE I GOT IT AND RESTORED IT; IN 2013 IT WON BEST IN CLASS AT THE WHEELS ACROSS THE PONDIN JUPITER FLORIDA. SINCE BRINGING THE VEHICLE UP TO CONNECTICUT I HAVE MADE SURE IT WAS GARAGED PROPERLY OVER THE WINTER TO KEEP THE SALT AWAY FROM THE VEHICLE; IT IS MY GOOD WEATHER CRUISER. THE VEHICLE HAS ALSO BEEN WELL MAINTAINED BY MOTOCARS IN PLAINVILLECT (A JAGUAR SPECIALIST). AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURES THE INTERIOR HAS BEEN LOVINGLY LOOKED AFTER. THE ODOMETER HAS 81700 MILES ON IT, THATS AN AVERAGE2817 MILES / YEAR. THE 4 MICHALIN TYRES ARE IN VG CONDITION AND STILL HAVE A LOT OF MILES ON THEM. THE 5 KENT ALLOY WHEELS ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH CENTER CAP AND THE CORRECT "GROWLER" ON THEM. THE AIR CONDITIONING WORKS AND HAS BEEN CONVERTED TO R134A. AT IDLE (800 RPM) OIL PRESSURE IS OVER 40 LBS, SYSTEM IS CHARGING AT 13V AND ENGINE TEMP SITS BETWEEN 80 - 90 DEGREES C. BOTH FUEL TANKS WORK AND TRANSFER CORRECTLY WITH THE FLICK OF A SWITCH. ALL ELECTRICAL ARE IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER, ELECTRIC MIRRORS, SUNROOF, ARIAL (DOESN'T GO ALL THE WAY UP) AND CENTRAL LOCKING. I UPGRADED THE FRONT SWAY BAR TO IMPROVE THE HANDLING OF THE VEHICLE, AND IT DID. THE XJ6 SERIES III WAS ONE OF THE LAST "BEAUTIFUL" JAGUARS DESIGNED BY SIR EDWARD LYONS, IN 1987 THIS MODEL WAS REPLACED BY THE NOT SO DESIRABLE XJ40.

BACK IN THE DAY THIS VEHICLE RETAILED FOR OVER $40K BUT YOU CAN OWN A PIECE OF APPRECIATING JAGUAR HISTORY FOR A FRACTION OF ITS ORIGINAL COST! TWO SETS OF KEYS AND ORIGINAL BOOKS WITH RADIO CODE. ARE INCLUDED. BID WITH CONFIDENCE ON A RARE LOVED XJ6 AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO CALL 860 515 1813.

AND WHY AM I SELLING IT AFTER ALL THE LOVE AND ATTENTION YOU MIGHT BE ASKING? LEFT HAND DRIVE CARS DONT GO TO WELL IN COUNTRIES WHERE THE STEERING WHEEL IS NORMALLY ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE SO THIS IS A FORCED BUT RELUCTANT SALE.

I HAVE A CLEAN CARFAX I CAN SHARE ON REQUEST.

THANKYOU FOR VIEWING MY AD
