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 there in line with 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. 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 & 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 & 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. Its pretty much immaculate! 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, & spark plugs. Rocker cover gaskets replaced, oil change & 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.
