As the original Passport to Service book confirms, this particular XJ6L was supplied new by Saville Motors Ltd of Stratford-upon-Avon in April 1975. It then had two owners before being acquired by Chester Road Motors of Kidderminster in October 1979 at which point it had covered some 40,000 miles (purchase invoice on file).
A Jaguar enthusiast, he kept the car garaged and used it in fine weather only, clocking up another 15,000 miles in the next five years before sadly falling ill in 1984 at which point the car was put into storage. Here it was to remain for the next 32 years in a nice dry garage attached to the family home.
The biscuit leather interior remains in excellent shape, as do the carpets, the furflex and the majority of the woodwork with just a few cracks in the varnish on the glovebox lid. The headlining is also excellent with none of the sagging that usually afflicts Jaguars from this era.
The 54,486 miles displayed is the genuine distance covered from new, backed up by five old MOTs from 1979 to 1984 and three stamps in the service book up to 20,996 miles in May 1977. The V5C records just four owners, the car being transferred into the late-owner’s widow’s name in June 2015. Two workshop manuals are also included (Haynes and Autobooks) along with the original owner's handbook, Passport to Service book, Sharp radio cassette instruction booklet, wiring diagram, air conditioning wiring diagram and a lubrication chart.
This is arguably the finest example of this UK built short wheel base ,manual 4.2 with overdrive 56500 miles it spent it's life in locked up garage This car was completely
