When introduced in 1979, the Jaguar XJ6 Series III was not immediately to everyone's liking. Despite an expensive redesign with its Pininfarina styled roof, and refreshed cabin, some Big Cat enthusiasts felt that it was taking liberties with the classic looks of one of their favourites.

In fact, the Series III set out to rectify some of the deficiencies of the Series II, and was better equipped for everyday use, but you had to try one to find that out. In addition to new body panels, the new model had an increased amount of glass, and a much-needed additional 3 inch of headroom in the back - great if you're being chauffered!

External differences included flush door handles, vertical grille bars, revised 'Gothic' rear lamp clusters, and impact bumpers with decorative chrome along their top edges.

After early doubts were allayed, the Series III established itself as one of the best Jaguars of all time, with the injected 4.2-litre coming out as the pick of the crop. In its review of June 1980, Car and Driver magazine described the Series III as being as 'slick as the inside of Faye Dunaway's dressing gown' - and one can't be fairer than that!


 Mint Condition throughout
 Beautiful straight, rust free body with immaculate mostly original paintwork
 Runs like a dream – so smooth to drive. Six-cylinder engines are tough and can rack up six-figure mileages easily with good maintenance.
 That 'gentleman's club' feel of the cab interior is wonderful and the leather seats and door trim have been well looked after. The cost of making a car like this look right can easily exceed that of mechanical considerations
 This would have to be one of the nicest examples in New Zealand. A pleasure to drive. Firm & Tight, no rattles or noises of any sort.
 Some Maintenance records available.
 Jack, tools, spare wheel with car
 5 actual owners from new
