The first XJ was launched in 1968 a designation which has been used for successive Jaguar flagship models ever since and was also the last Jaguar saloon to have had the input of Sir William Lyons, the company's founder. The XJ6, using 2.8 litre and 4.2 litre straight six-cylinder versions of Jaguar's renowned XK engine, replaced most of Jaguar's saloons which, in the 1960s, had expanded to four separate ranges. Power-assisted steering and leather upholstery were standard on the 2.8 litre De Luxe and 4.2 litre models. An unusual feature, inherited from the Jaguar Mk. X and S-Type, was the provision of twin fuel tanks positioned on each side of the boot and filled using two separately lockable filler caps.
This super stylish Jaguar, showing a mere 25,000 miles on the odometer, appears to be in good all-round condition showing no real signs of corrosion in all the usual places. The Jaguar is fitted with automatic transmission and the trim is standard and indeed shows very little sign of wear. We are advised by the vendor that this example runs and drives very well and turns heads wherever it goes. The history file includes the original bill of sale, old MoT tests, original manuals, various sundry invoices along with a current MoT test certificate and UK Registration document. This two family owned, low mileage example is an opportunity not to be missed.
