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