Car description



Series III


Stunning 1-owner with 44,000 miles
n "all original" presentation

This is an absolutely gorgeous XJ6 Jaguar sedan out-fitted in Maraschino black (solid black) with Mulberry (burgundy) hide-leather interior and coordinating burgundy carpets. The car is finished with a subtle deep burgundy fine-line on the body waist-line. The overall combination presents very elegantly and is quite stunning.

This is a genuine 1 owner example with a wonderful 43,000 original low miles. Delivered in Illinois in the fall of 1985, the car was owned by a mature lady who rarely drove it. By her elderly age in 2004, the car was put away in climate control storage and travelled less than 1,000 miles in the subsequent 13 years. The car was never driven in inclement weather (being a rear wheel drive) and so is rust and scale free. The car was purchased from the family's estate.

The body on this car is straight and the paint is in very good condition sporting mostly original paint. It does have some very minor little marks here and therein linewith that expected from a low mileage example that has been well maintained and regularly cleaned and polished. The paint is consistent and lustrous. There is no rust and the underside is very clean and dry.

The interior of the car is in stunning condition with excellent hide leather upholstery finished in the rich Burgundy leather. All the wood on the dash, doors and console is original and in very good condition. There are a couple of minor hairline fractures but this is not glaringly obvious and certainly less than typical examples. The wood and lacquer finish is shiny and the wood presents rich in grain - it presents in "excellent" condition and I would rate it a 9 out of 10.. The is no sagging or marks in the headlining. It presents in original appearance and the carpet is excellent. The deep grain and glossy finish of the rich grained wood in this example contrasts beautifully with the rich Mulberry Connolly hides - making the interior of this car very rich and inviting. All interior chrome finishes are almost perfect. The dash and rear parcel shelf is without any cracks or sun damage. Overall it is like that of a 5+ year old well looked after Jaguar and smells like it too.

All interior features and functions are fully operational including electrics - windows, gauges, lights etc. The A/C blows icy cold. Everything is also clean and crisp. It still has its original stereo system fitted.

The exterior chrome, stainless steel and bright work finishes are all good without any pitting and the rubber around the car is very fine.

Mechanically, the car is in superior condition and the original presentation under the bonnet clearly shows that. The car was recently put thru the Park-Ward workshop. A full safety inspection carried out with anything needing doing, attended to. Some of the work included; a full tune up with new wires, rotor, cap, and spark plugs. Rocker cover gaskets replaced, oil change and filter, new factory shock bushings in the front and steering rack bushings. The gas tank has is in single-mode and performs well. Operational items such as windows, mirrors, AC, heater, lights etc were serviced as required. Exhaust is good with the correct original stainless exhaust tips fitted. The has a set of period correct Michelin MX4 215/70-15 whitewall tires (with good tread).The spare tyre is the factory original Pirellii P5 which has NEVER been used.

This is a 10 out of 10 driver example that needs nothing else doing. It makes for a gorgeous "weekender" that you could also take to your next Jaguar meet with pride and joy.

**PLEASE read auction terms and conditions below BEFORE bidding.**


This Jaguar is part of a private collection. Although licensed and bonded, I am not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; I am a professional car collector of some 30 years with considerable experience and knowledge of British cars. I have a long standing reputation being associated with the Rolls-Royce marque which I take seriously. I take pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. However, auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer, and you are the winning bidder, please understand you have entered a binding contract. You cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to "hold" the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. Once you bid or make an offer, you are doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. Your bid can not be subject to anything. A $2000.00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by PayPal. The balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier's check or bank wire. I cannot accept PayPal for the balance unless you are willing to meet the cost of transfer fees. Full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so, if all the funds are not received as outlined above, I reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received and I elect to terminate the contract, I reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. To be clear, if you change your mind for ANY reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required, you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.

As a collector and experienced restorer of a range of classic cars, I make every effort to bring my cars to a high standard. By comparison, my cars are generally superior to others available but they are by no means perfect. You must expect some issues. Unless specifically stated, the car is not of show standard but of nice "driver" condition. Please understand, show cars cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices commensurate, so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition. You are buying "condition" accordingly. Buyers should not expect to receive concours quality or "perfect" cars at these prices. Please also understand it is not always possible to attend to every item, or perhaps I may have inadvertently overlooked items. Further, and very importantly, these cars are not new. So this means a 31 year old car is predominantly comprised of 31 year old parts. And old parts will fail. All buyers must understand and expect that things can or will wear out, break and/or stop functioning without notice. This is even more likely with hand-built English cars of early technology when compared to the typical American car of the same vintage. Suspension and brakes on these cars are complex. We thoroughly check them and replace things that are identified faulty. But please understand, by example; if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty, we do NOT at the same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. This is considered "preventative maintenance". We do not do this unless specifically requested and is not included in the purchase price. Feel free to ask for this additional service. Further, a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment, may decide to play-up the next. After all, it is some 31 years old. This is the nature of any used car and especially British cars. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:

The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty expressed, written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible for errors in description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos, then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, unforeseen imperfection, defect or damage. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer's request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age, in most US states, the mileage may be recorded as "exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage, transportation, or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end, a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also, you must remember that this is a 31 year old vehicle, and while it is up to you, I do not recommend that you just "hop in and drive it across the country" until you have familiarised yourself with the car. At least, I have never done that. I have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where I bought them to my home.


I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately, only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult, so it appears EVERYTHING needs to spelled out. Very simply put, this is an old car being offered for sale. It is not new and is subject to the perils of age. Further, Jaguars are not without nuances, idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. So, please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.
