Description DAIMLER JAGUAR XJ6 4.2 Series 2 1978 S Reg Stunning Classic Only 73K MoT Mar 17

Hi
ebayers

 

I’m
reluctantly offering for sale my

Classic
Jaguar XJ6 Series 2

4.2
Litre AUTO in Russet Brown.

 

A
really lovely looking car registered

On
1st January 1978 on a Suffix S Reg Plate

 

The
Daimler has covered a genuine 73,000 miles

During
which time it has undergone some

Serious
resto work making it what it is today.

 

There
was a huge wad of history with the car

Because
the last but one owner owned the car

For
many years but passed away around 2 years ago

Leaving
the car in dry storage since then.

 

The
car was used on the rare odd occasion

And
was taken for MoT every year up to 2014 as can be seen

On
the DVLA MoT website history

But
very little mileage was added to the car

Since
2007 which shows the mileage on 71K in 2007.

 

During
a subsequent house move

The
large file on the car was thrown out

So
sadly the records are no longer available.

 

The
car was then bequeathed to a friend of their family

Who
put the car up for sale which is how I came to own it.

 

Comes
with MoT due 24th March 2017

And
currently on SORN and I have the V5

And
the car is now in my name.

 

The
car passed the MoT okay

But
advised on a front ball joint which was sorted

And
a rear trailing arm was replaced as well.

 

Since
buying the car it has had

New
set of spark plugs

New
set of points and a new condenser.

 

It
has also had some adjustments on the carbs

Which
were over fuelling causing a fuel leak

And
a missing bolt from the throttle cable assembly

Was
replaced to give even smooth acceleration

And
engine throttle control.

 

This
is the 4.2 Litre petrol Straight 6 Engine

Kicking
out a very respectable 205 BHP

There
is no cambelt

To
worry about they are all chain driven engines.

 

This
is coupled to a 4 speed automatic gearbox

In
full working order with nice smooth changes

 

The
seats are sumptuous Cream leather with beautiful walnut

Cappings
and trim around the car and centre facia.

in
good condition throughout with no signs

of
age but very good strong firm bolsters

and
all the seat adjustments work correctly.

 

The
back seats are also in very good condition

With
2 x 3 point seat belts.

 

The
interior is in very good condition throughout.

Stunning
leather seats as mentioned and

Carpets
are all very nice with no real sign of wear.

 

Door
cards all in good condition with good handles and panels.

This
really is a very nice place to be!

 

The
headlining is in good order and doesn’t sag

And
isn’t detached from its base but it shows some creases.

Knowing
how these linings do sag I would suggest that

This
one has been changed at some point as it is clean and intact.

 

The
windows are all electric and in full working order

Albeit
a bit slow due to lack of use but power to all

Windows
is present and they do all work.

 

Drivers
door Mirror manually operated off the chrome

Lever
inside – no mirror on passenger door

And
I think the drivers mirror is off a series 3 Jag.

 

The
heater system needs work as the fan

Doesn’t
work at the moment.

Warm
air does ram through nicely but no fan.

 

Instrument
panel is working fine with all dials working

and
no incorrect readings

and
no problems with any of the readings.

 

The
car drives very well on all roads with

good
acceleration and a very nice drive

with
the auto gearbox.

 

The
engine is in good order and runs very well

Giving
nice smooth and powerful firm acceleration

At
all times with no uneven running or overheating.

 

It
really is a lovely big old car to drive

It
feels solid and heavy but with plenty of power

To
carry it along gracefully

But
with hidden roar power if needed.

The
kickdown works and is very effective.

 

There
is an oil leak believed to be from the sump.

It
will leave drops on the road as well so

could
do with being sorted at some point.

 

The
fuel system also requires some rectification.

At
the moment the car runs off the main fuel tank

On
the left side of the car.

The
reserve tank is on the right and is selected

By
pushing the fuel tank select switch so it

Is
in the ‘out’ position. However, when you select

Out
there is no noise from the fuel pump so I think

The
fuel pump is at fault or there is an electrical fault.

 

The
car still runs fine as long as you leave the switch

On
the ‘in’ position and run the car off the main tank.

 

The
other point to note on the car is the suspension.

It
seems to be a bit on the low side and I don’t believe it has

Been
lowered or anything like that but when you turn

The
car the tyre does catch the lip on the front wing

And
the inner arch liner on the right side.

I
think it might need new springs at the least

And
possibly new struts and springs to lift it back up

To
maintain sufficient clearance for the road wheels.

 

The
bodywork is in very good order throughout.

 

There
are some small rust bubblings at the bottom edge

Of
the front wings and inside the main beam headlight

Surrounds
has surface rust which would need

Some
rectification in the future but overall

It’s
a gorgeous looking car.

 

The
front and rear scuttle panels are all good

Having
been painted before.

 

There’s
a minor paint defect on the OSF wing which

Is
noticeable and is shown in the photos but it’s not serious

And
doesn’t detract from the overall good looks of the car.

 

The
bumpers are chrome and in good condition

But
would require re-chroming if perfection is sought

As
would the hub caps and wheel trims.

 

The
paint has a lovely deep smooth shine to it

Which
has really come back with a light T Cut

And
good polish using Auto Glym

And
Mk1 elbow grease.

 

The
beige vinyl roof is in lovely condition all over

And
has been cleaned up with a vinyl care polish

And
has a clean satin finish to it as well as being a

Lovely
contrast to the brown coachwork.

 

Rims
are in good clean condition save some age related

Marks
and areas of surface rust in the corners

They
are all good wheels and have cleaned up nicely

And
there is no kerb damage.

 

Brakes
are in full working order stopping the car

in
a straight line with no uneven breaking or juddering

 

Inside
the boot is all as it should be with spare wheel,

and
tool kit present. The Jack is also located in the boot

towards
the back in its storage bag.

Spare
is inflated with a good tyre

 

There is
1 key working

all
the locks remotely and the ignition.

Central
locking as well in working order.

Car
starts straight away.

 

So
there you have it

One
very nice 38 year old Daimler 4.2

In
lovely metallic brown with

Good
top spec and clean and tidy

Good
on the body with very solid, reliable mechanics

And
lovely leather seats and a CD player.

 

Extremely
low mileage for one of these cars

At
38 years old and must be a great example  for the

Ranks
of the best classic cars.

 

My
Classic Series 2 Daimler AUTO is offered for sale

On
ebay at £6750

 

Cash
on collection is okay or bank transfer also welcome

and
you can go online here at time of purchase if you wish.

Paypal
also accepted but I am unwilling to cover their

very
excessive fees of around 3.5%

so
please bear that in mind if you wish to use paypal.

I
will also be happy to hold the car for you over an agreed time period

on
security of a £150 deposit which will be

 

NON
REFUNDABLE.

 

Without
a deposit the car will remain for sale on a first come,

first
served basis.

I
am sure you will understand this if you are serious about the car.

 

Delivery
is also possible within the UK if this helps you out

it
can be arranged and it would be my pleasure to deliver the car.

Also
happy to deliver the car to a ferry port or air/rail terminal if you are
travelling from outside UK.

 

I
ask £1 per mile one way for delivery

then
make my own way back.

 

I
would drive the car to you because the trailer

I
have used in the past is now off the road.

 

If
you want the car delivering by trailer

I
can arrange that but please ask for a quote

Because
I would have to hire a trailer.

 

I
positively welcome any STRONGLY ADVISE

Any
inspection from anyone

who
wishes to view and test the car,

and
I can demonstrate the car for you.

Please
feel free to bring a mechanic, engineer or

friend
with you to view the car

which
might help you feel a bit more comfortable.

AA/RAC
etc all welcome - please contact me to arrange.

 

I
have nothing to hide and welcome any inspection on any of my cars.

 

The
photos were taken on 10th June 2016 in good light

and
show the car as it actually is now.

I
have tried to get as close to the car as possible

but
if you require any specific picture of any part of the car

just
ask and I'll obtain it and email it to you.

 

I
do have a huge stack of photos on file of the car

All
around it and the underside and inside the boot etc

So
please ask and I would be happy to send you them all.

I
am talking about a total of around 200 pictures.

 

If
you have any questions or would like to

view/inspect
the car please contact Pete on

07825
542026 anytime

or
email me via ebay.

 

We
are in Coningsby

14
miles north of Boston in

sunny
spuddy Lincolnshire.

you for reading my ad.

 

Kind
Regards

 

Pete
