Exceptional 1969 Jaguar XJ6 Series 1 For Sale

Launched in September 1968, the Jaguar XJ6 was the last model that Sir William Lyons had hands-on input into. The revolutionary new car, managed to retain the inimitable style of earlier Jaguars but offered a step change in the level of driveability and safety. As a result, initial demand was so strong that second-hand examples were achieving premiums over new cars on dealership forecourts. I can recall my Dad couldn’t get one until 1972 and still made a profit on it! Today the beauty and outstanding ability of the of the S1 cars, means they are considered by enthusiasts as the purist form of Sir William Lyons’ design and are therefore most prised by collectors. My exceptional, magazine featured early XJ6 was manufactured at Browns Lane on 8th December 1969 and was initially supplied to an engineering company based in Wolverhampton, which is still trading today. Since then it has only had two additional registered owners. An early invoice for £2,468 for the sale of the car in 1970, is a nice part of the extensive history file. Finished in the period correct colour of Jaguar Light Blue with dark blue Connolly leather, still original and with a lovely lightly used patina that would be impossible to replicate if restored. The car also still retains all its early production features including chrome dials, straight exhaust pipe finishers, small rear lights, the simple battery carrier with attached washer bottle, wheel trims and original carpets. Servicing was initially conducted by the Jaguar factory service department but since 2000 it has been entrusted to Jaguar authorised retailers and most recently, a Jaguar time-served engineer. Recent recommissioning includes a complete brake overhaul, including discs, callipers, pads and master cylinder rebuild, new suspension components, re-enamelled exhaust manifold and a full service, including carburettor rebuild and tune. All the invoices for this work are present. The engine was previously restored in 1997 by VSE in Wales. This work is also recorded with a copy of the invoice and 'hot test' report. It has covered only 10,000 miles since. Today the engine is quiet, free revving and performs well owing to the better balance of the 2.8 and lack of emission control that sapped the performance of the later cars. Classic Restorations in Scotland who are renowned for their outstanding work on Rolls-Royce and Bentley vehicles, were entrusted to carry out out a restoration of the bodywork, which included many new original panels and a full repaint in the original highly attractive colour scheme. There are literally tens of thousands of pounds of receipts related to this work. Additional incidental history includes the original owner’s manual and wallet, MoT test certificates since 1972, a number of vehicle tax discs, all the invoices for restoration, servicing and the engine rebuild, along with a copy of ‘Jaguar World’ from 1993, which features this car and owner at the time. In summary, this is one of the very nicest XJ I have owned, or indeed ever seen and I think most prospective purchasers on seeing the car in person, would tend to agree.
