Seller's description:

1983 Jaguar XJ

Colour Blue

Odometer 17,709 Miles

Engine size 4200

Seller Type Private

Town Godstone

Location Surrey

Country United Kingdom

Genuine 17,709 miles from new

Every MOT from new until 2004

Original service book with every service stamp

Requires recommissioning following 20 years in storage

This particular 1983 example stands out due to its incredibly low mileage of just 17,709 miles from new, something that can be partially attributed to a long period in dry storage. Reinforcing that remarkably low odometer reading, this fabulous Jaguar comes with a comprehensive history file, including every MOT and service stamp up until it was placed in storage in 2004.

While it requires some recommissioning, the vehicle has been started and driven, suggesting that with some attention to the fuel system and a general service, it'll be ready to return to the road. The solid bodywork, well-preserved interior, and original features make this XJ6 a worthy candidate for any discerning enthusiast's collection.

History and Paperwork

Registered in 1983

The DVLA records 4 previous keepers

Placed into dry, secure storage in 2004

Genuine 17,709 miles from new

Complete with:

Every MOT from new until 2004

Original service book with every service stamp up to 2004

Original sales brochure and price list

Original Jaguar tool kit

Haynes manual

Multiple invoices

Original handbooks and booklets

Still wears its original Baldwin Jaguar dealership number plates

The Condition

Bodywork is solid with no rust on rear exhaust valence and side tank valences

A few superficial small blisters on: 

Right-hand corner of the front windscreen scuttle

Bottom centre of rear window scuttle

Left-hand front A-pillar

Edge of sunroof

It looks like the car has had paint at some point in its life

It presents very well, and the Cobalt Blue Metallic shade really suits the car

Chromework is in good order

Original tyres with excellent tread but signs of perishing on sidewalls

Interior presents well with minor stitching separation on rear seat base

Other than this the upholstery looks very good indeed

Carpets and sound deadening show no wear or water ingress

Underneath the carpets, the floors look excellent

The Mechanics

4.2L XK6 I6 engine

Automatic transmission

Original Waxoyl coating under the bonnet

Car has spent a long period in storage

Turns over freely and will start and momentary with easystart

However, the vendor recommends a fuel system flush and general service before returning to the road, therefore the car will need to be collected by transporter

Once this is done, it'll no doubt be a superb, very usable classic

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
