1974 Jaguar XJ6 Long
Wheelbase 4.2 Manual, 9,000 miles from new, must be the best period XJ6 in
existence, museum quality
This is a truly stunning un-restored example
which has had the same driver since 1975.
Originally supplied to
Leigh Park Jaguar, Buckinghamshire on 15th November 1974 - original dealer
sticker still in the windscreen and original number plates still on the
car - and registered to it's first owner on the
9th of January
1975. The vehicle was retained by the original owner for one year at which point ownership transferred to
the second owner who employed a chauffeur to drive the car. Upon the
second owner's passing in 1988 the car was bequeathed to the chauffeur who
has kept the car ever since. We have a letter from this gentleman
explaining that the car has only been caught in the rain on one occasion
in it's entire life and confirming that he has been virtually the sole
driver since the car was 12 months old. The letter also states the genuine
mileage of the vehicle to be 9,150 miles in July 2017. The car is still
wearing it's original Dunlop tyres dated 1973 with plenty of tread
remaining, in fact you can still see the beading on the rear tyres ! The original spare key is still bolted to the inner
wing, just as it left the Jaguar factory !
Recent expenditure in
excess of £2500 to include two new fuel tanks and fuel pumps, new discs
and pads, upper and lower ball joints, track rod ends etc, needless to say
the car car
sailed through it's MOT in August.
Finished in period Fern
Grey with beige hide upholstery and beige carpets, all pretty much as new
and totally original throughout - still with remnants of the original
plastic coverings on the kick plates and seat base ! The car does not look
43 years old at all, rather it presents exactly as a 9,000 mile car ought
to. The interior is in excellent order showing very little signs of use,
the woodwork similarly in excellent condition. The original headlining is
sagging but we will happily attend to this prior to sale. Underneath the
car is really exceptional and has clearly been stored in a damp free
environment. This must be the best period XJ in existence and
should probably be in a museum - although it does seem a shame not to
drive such a beautiful car. According to "how many left" website, there
are currently 27 long wheelbase XJ6 4.2 in use on UK roads, how many of
those will be manual ?

keys, original owners
manuals, workshop diagrams, letter from the previous owner, buff log book

unique opportunity, surely there cannot be another long wheelbase manual
