This stylish Silver & Black 1972 Series 1 Jaguar XJ6 sedan is a 2-owner from new car, backed with a fully documented history of ownership. This example is a highly original and well-kept Sedan that is part of the first-generation Series 1 line of XJ6 cars that started in 1968 and continues to this day. Of particular note with this model is that it was one of the last Jaguars to have been produced under the design direction of legendary company founder, Sir William Lyons.

First and foremost, our team sought to preserve the originality and patina of this XJ6 while freshening it up; as such, we performed a full cleanup with very light restoration work and improvements to the car's interior and exterior. In addition, the team performed a full detail under the XJ6’s bonnet, undercarriage, and trunk area.

Mechanically, the XJ6 was fully overhauled to ensure maximum power, performance, and dependability. The team began the process by removing the sedan’s engine and transmission, and shortly after started rebuilding the stock 4.2-liter engine. The XJ6’s original transmission proved to be in good condition and as such was fully inspected and serviced while the engine was being rebuilt. In addition to the engine rebuild, the team performed a number of other mechanical services to the car, including the addition of new parts including:

· Installation of new A/C parts including a compressor, dryer filter, and conversion to 134A refrigerant.
· Installation of a new fuel pump and fuel lines
· Installation of new front Brake rotors
· Installation and setup of new twin Gas tanks
· Installation of a new Distributor with built-in electronic ignition
· Installation of a new set of (4) shocks
· Rebuild and re-installation of the Brake Master Cylinder
· Full rebuild of the Sedan’s Steering Rack

On the inside of the XJ6, our master trimmer fully refreshed the entire interior, which included work on the seats, dash, back seat, and extensive work in the trunk area. The wooden dash fully compliments the Sedan’s tidy Black interior, and blends well with the car’s sleek silver exterior.

The XJ6 is now ready to be enjoyed, and comes complete with its original owner's manuals, operating brochures, as well as an extra set of keys. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a well preserved XJ6 and one of the last Jaguars produced under Sir William Lyons!


This is the first variant (Series 1) of the XJ6 produced from 1968 to the present time. Listed in the September 06 issue of Automobile Magazine as one of the 25 most beautiful cars ever! In 1968, the XJ was the designation given to a series of elegant flagship, full-size luxury saloons which were also the last Jaguars to have the design direction of company founder Sir William Lyons. Interestingly a year later, upscale Daimler versions were also offered called the Sovereign. Power came from a DOHC 4.2 L straight six. It also featured power steering, leather upholstery and optional air conditioning. The XJ also broke new ground mechanically for saloons with its rear independent suspension and Jaguar's first foray into rack-and-pinion steering. The first 'Mark' was introduced in 1968 and continued until 1992. During this time there were three series, Series 1, Series 2, and Series 3. From 1968 through 1973, Jaguar produced 82,126 examples of the XJ Series I. Additionally, the XJ inherited from the Mark X the twin fuel tanks positioned on each side of the boot, or trunk as we call it, and filled using two separate filler caps. This car features the optional air conditioning, four wheel disc brakes and boasts a top speed of 120 MPH.
