1972 'K' Series One Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Automatic, 48,000 miles, original un-restored example, Jaguar Heritage Certificate

An utterly beguiling, wholly original series one XJ in superb condition which has covered just 48,000 miles. This is an original, un-restored example with just 2 previous owners, originally supplied to Appleyard Jaguar on 7th December 1971 and registered to it's first owner on the 1st of January 1972. The vehicle was retained by the original owner until his passing in 2003 at which point ownership transferred to his wife who eventually sold the car to a family friend. We have managed to speak to the son of the original owner who remembers travelling to the Jaguar dealership with his father to collect the car. During his father's tenure the car was much cherished, always garaged and used solely for high days and holidays, covering approximately 35,000 miles in 31 years of ownership. The family friend was very active in the Classic Car scene and used the vehicle mainly to attend Classic Car Shows, retaining invoices for servicing and repairs throughout his tenure to further corroborate the low mileage, although the condition speaks for itself !

Finished in Old English white with navy leather and dark blue carpets the condition of the vehicle is truly remarkable with barely a blemish to be seen. Wholly original throughout, the vehicle has not been restored and presents exactly as a 48,000 mile car ought to, the condition totally belies the cars 45 years and imparts a huge sense of pride of ownership. The interior is in excellent order showing very little signs of use, the woodwork similarly in excellent condition. The original headlining is loosening slightly in places but so far is not sagging and is perfectly acceptable. Underneath the car is totally solid with no significant corrosion evident, the car has clearly been undersealed and stored in a damp free environment. There really cannot be many in this remarkable, original condition.

Period specification to include electric windows front and rear, power steering, original radio, front head restraints, wing mounted rear view mirrors etc. Blissfully simple and utterly charming.

Supplied with all original keys, original owners manuals, radio manual, dealer guide, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, workshop diagrams, car cover etc.

The vehicle has been fully serviced and will be supplied with a new MOT with no advisory notices, current MOT May 2018. Interesting part exchange considered.

An exceptional, original example in superb order throughout, a joy to drive and bound to appreciate if maintained in this condition.
