This Jaguar XJ6 4.2 first series has a 4-speed manual gearbox plus overdrive, full-featured with the extremely rare air conditioning system of the time,
4 truly full electric windows.
It was bought by the Jaguar of Rome, on June 30, 1971, from a well-known manufacturer of Teramo (Italy), taken as a representative car and used rarely.
It comes with original plates, all the keys, the use and maintenance booklets and the service booklet used until the end of the Jaguar warranty.
It is a one-owner car, rarely used, always retained in a closed box, quite rare to find in these conditions.
After a long period of non-use, it was put back in motion and prepared for a wedding, then stopped again for a few years.
Now we are taking care of restarting it, making a general check and a complete coupon.
The first series of the XJ made its debut at the 1968 Paris Motor Show and was produced until 1973, when it was replaced by the second series.
It was the last car designed after years of studies under the direction of William Lyons, the historic founder of Jaguar and the new management of BMC (British Motor Corporation), the holding company that had recently acquired Jaguar.
Two engines were offered with six cylinders in line: a slow and unreliable 142 bhp 2.8 and a 245 bhp 4.2.
The most luxurious version, renamed Daimler Sovereign, was unveiled in 1969: among the various details we mention the two petrol tanks, with two fillers, one on each side.
