1970s Jaguars are pretty cars but fraught with period Blighty quality and reliability issues. But they sure look good. And the other day this one popped up on Finding Future Classic Cars. Would I own it? Nah. But I can still appreciate these cars, especially in pillarless coupe form. The white paint, black top and red leather interior is particularly striking.
It’s currently on LA craigslist. But the car is in Portland with a New Jersey title. Hmm. Hope the old girl is still in one piece. Anyway, per the ad:
“Concours-level mint condition all original 1976 Jaguar XJ6C with only 26,000 original California miles, owned by celebrity car collector in Los Angeles and now by a Jaguar collector.”
“Extremely rare 2 door coupe model – one of 3899 left-hand drive made between 1975-1977. Must-see car with Jaguar Heritage Certificate and all paperwork. All original except for tires and hoses and other engine routine maintenance. Never taken apart or restored.”
“All numbers match. Extremely rare car in this condition. Paint and interior are in practically new condition. Never in rain or other water. Body and interior and underbody are perfect.”
“All electronics and features work with no issues at all. Spent its entire life in dry Southern California climate. Serious buyers only.”
Tempted? If you are, and like these cars, this would be the one to get, in better-than-new shape with zero issues or needs. A basket case one of these would likely drain your savings and vaporize your happiness and good will in no time! But she sure is pretty!
