Chassis number 1G5210 - supplied new on April 10th 1970 by "George Newman & Co Ltd, Northways Parade, Swiss Cottage, Finchley" for a renowned and titled Scottish Ophthalmologist to King Edward VIII, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. This first owner had been born in Tealing by Dundee and was at this time residing in St. Johns Wood, registering the car in his Companies name "Tealing Books" the car remained with his widow after his death in 1978 until 1983 when her Ladyship, having close connections with The University of London expressed a wish to sell the car to the University, an AA report was duly commissioned and a copy remains within the history file. In the event the University elected not to proceed with the purchase and at 16,650 miles the car was subsequently purchased by another titled gentleman and Principle of the University of London and later the Vice Chancellor of the University of Hull, who was to remain the second owner of the car until his retirement in 1991. The cars history records a service at 26,465 miles during July 1991 in Hull, along with a good selection of previous invoices during this ownership. From the history file we can see that the car finds its 3rd owner during September 1991 this time in the Market Town of Lutterworth, Leicestershire, where the car was to remain until the current registered keeper and vendor acquired the car during September 2010. The car retains its original Owners Service Policy dated April 14th 1970 and Routine Service Booklet with the first Free Service signed by G Newman. The XJ6 was launched during September 1968 in 2.8 and 4.2 guise this an early Series 1 example distinguishable by having the rear reflectors within the boot reverse light cluster as opposed to below the rear light cluster and chrome gauge bezels as opposed to black ones. An unusual feature, inherited from the Mark X and original S Type saloons, was the provision of twin fuel tanks, positioned on each side of the boot, and filled using two separately lockable filler caps, one on the top of each wing above the rear wheel arches. For 1969 the XJ6 achieved the accolade of "Car of The Year" with a total 2.8 production run 19,322 examples.
