Lot : Jaguar XJ6C

Vintage, Classic & Collectors Motor Vehicles, BCA (22 April 2008)

Although the coupé version of the XJ6 was first seen in late 1973, it did not in fact go into production until two years later. Sleek and elegant, this model exuded an air of exclusivity. It was to become highly sought after and, with a production run of just two years, it is a comparative rarity today and as such is keenly sought by Jaguar enthusiasts.A 1975 model, this XJ6C has been in the current ownership for the past 22 years. During 1987 an extensive restoration was undertaken both bodily and mechanically which we are advised cost approximately £30,000. The engine and gearbox were replaced at this point whilst the coachwork refurbishment included the fitment of new wings. Additional work carried out has included the replacement of the steering column within the last couple of years whilst a stainless steel exhaust system has been installed. The radiator was also renewed fairly recently. The car was exported to France in 1987 and it is now reluctantly offered for sale as the vendor has little time to enjoy it. Still currently wearing its Paris registration number, we understand that only around 8,000 kms have been covered whilst in this ownership and the vehicle is offered with French documentation and extensive service history etc. Finished in dark blue with beige trim, the motor car is of very smart appearance all round.
