(SOLD) This XJ6C has a great deal of originality, and has predominately been a California car for most of its life. It is a very straight and solid car in stock factory condition, and was purchased from a western collector who kept it well maintained during the course of his ownership. The Sports Coupe is full of power, and while very sporty has more than enough room to accommodate up to 5 adults. Finished in a beautiful color combination of Maroon over Biscuit with a Black vinyl roof that is highly unique to this model, the car comes with a period correct AM-FM-8 Track stereo, full instrumentation, and a number of luxury/comfort options including power steering, power windows, power brakes, and factory air-conditioning. The Sports Coupe retains its original glass and chrome throughout, and features a large trunk that is perfect for storage, and a streamlined body to accommodate it's rare and unique 2-door design. Recently, the car was given a fresh Maroon finish along with a power steering pump rebuild, and a comprehensive servicing by Jaguar experts at Classic Showcase. The XJ series models have seen a resurgence in popularity as of late, so don't miss your chance to acquire a definitive example of a classic Jaguar design!


Sir John William hailed the XJ series as 'the finest Jaguar ever.' The 'XJ' designation had been used during the vehicles development as its codename. When the vehicle was introduced, the codename persisted. When introduced it was powered by a six-cylinder engine that came in either 2.8- or 4.2-liter displacement. In 1972 a 5.3-liter V12 unit was introduced It brought mild aesthetic improvements over the prior years. One of the more visual indications of a Series II from a Series I was the smaller front grille. A 3.4-liter engine became available in 1975.
