Sold 1974 Jaguar XJ6 Series 2

1974 Jaguar XJ6 Series 2




The XJ6 sedan was the last Jaguar designed by company founder William Lyons, and it was so good that while other sedans bit the dust, the car would stay in production for more than two decades. Introduced in late 1968, it combined refinement, luxury, 120-mph performance, and superb handling.

The signature 4.2-liter DOHC six-cylinder delivered 180 horsepower, along with four-wheel independent suspension, power rack-and-pinion steering, power disc brakes all round, and an automatic transmission. The cars featured leather seats, walnut fascia, and sufficient gauges for a small plane. An estimated 254,512 XJ6s were sold in 18 years.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.

Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.

Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.

We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
