(SOLD) It is very rare to ever find a car that looks like it did the day that it left the showroom floor. Here is your opportunity to own one of the finest original examples in the world today. This is a two owner Vanden Plas Series III Sedan with just over 8,000 original miles. All of the factory stickers are still under the bonnet in place, it smells new, it looks new and drives like new. This car was in a climate controlled garage for many years, and it recently has had a full service performed by Classic Showcase. This included changing all the fluids, installing new tires due to age, a new battery, servicing the fuel injection system, installing new shock bushings, installing new seals in the air conditioning system, new compressor, and charging the system with Freon. It blows ice cold today. This is truly a no excuse car, and it would be hard to ever find one better with this spectacular color combination. It also features a factory sunroof, alloy wheels and is fully loaded. It has all the original books, jack and both sets of keys. It recently scored 99.9 points in a Concours in Preservation Class. This example is for the collector that appreciates good patina and superb original examples.
In late 1979 the XJ was face lifted again, and was known as the "Series III."Using the long-wheelbase version of the car, the XJ6 incorporated a subtle redesign by Pininfarina. Externally, the most obvious changes over the SII were the thicker and more incorporated rubber bumpers with decorative chrome only on the top edge, flush door handles for increased safety, a one-piece front door glass without a separate 1/4 light, a grille with only vertical vanes, reverse lights moved from the boot plinth to the larger rear light clusters and a revised roofline with shallower glass area. There were three engine variants, including the 5.3L V12, the 4.2L straight 6 and 3.4L straight 6. The larger 6-cylinder, and V12 models incorporated Bosch fuel injection (made under license by Lucas) while the smaller 6-cylinder was carbureted. The smaller 3.4L 6-cylinder engine was not offered in the U.S. The short-wheelbase saloon and coupé had been dropped during the final years of the Series II XJ. The introduction of the Series III model also saw the option of a sunroof and cruise control for the first time on an XJ model.
