1975 Jaguar XJ6L 4.2

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Good-or­der Se­ries 2 Jaguar XJ6s are sel­dom seen, and fine ones are even rarer – so this 9100-miles­from-new model (which is early enough to wear the ‘L’ moniker on the bootlid) was a great find. Its man­ual trans­mis­sion, no ra­dio and no door or wing mir­rors added to the ap­peal even more.

Sold new by Leigh Park Mo­tors in Datchet, Berk­shire – which was no longer deal­ing in Jaguars by the late 1970s – this three-owner model was right in ev­ery re­spect. The Fern Grey paint had depth and shine, while the body­work showed no signs of rust and the panel fit was very good. The in­te­rior was ex­cel­lent, let down only by the typ­i­cally Jaguar sag­ging head­lin­ing. A joy in ev­ery re­spect, and very well bought.
