Sold Jaguar XJC 4.2 1977

Jaguar XJC 4.2 1977



Think of two-door Jags and you immediately remember the XK sports cars, E-type, XJ-S and, of course, the XK8. But a sumptuous, two-door XJ6 was made briefly during the mid 1970s, and despite its short lifespan and undoubted exclusivity, it never caught the imagination of classic car lovers¦until recent that is.

Apart from being a fine grand tourer, that was much more practical, roomier and easier on the eye than the XJ-S of the same era, the XJC is a classic cat that every Jaguar enthusiast should have in his collection.

It's an XJ6, which means amazing modernity after almost four decades. Rolls-Royce-beating ride and sports car-like handling that stunned the world all those years ago and can still impress today.

In terms of performance, the 4.2-litre six is adequate for today's roads and will propel the car to 60mph in under 10 seconds. Expect around 20-22mpg, too. Naturally, the coupe XJC loses a bit of practicality over the saloon, but the big doors make for easy access.


  • This car has to be one of the finest examples in the country!
  • It was first registered in New Zealand in 1987 and had four owners since.
  • The first two were husband and wife who owned for 21 years, the third for 2 years and the fourth for several years till recently.
  • This car is beautiful. It is in MINT condition throughout.
  • XJC's are thin on the ground and not often does one come across such an example.
  • A well maintained vehicle, this car comes with a very straight, rust free body and original colour.
  • Mechanically sound. Low mileage. Drives beautifully. 
  • Interior in excellent condition. Comfortable, warm upholstery. No cracks on dash, no rips on seats or carpets, all instruments work.
  • A very well preserved Jaguar Coupe. Very reliable and feels like a new car.

This XJC deserves to go to a good home. It could be the classic you've been looking for and at this price, it should be the purr-fect cat for you.

Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.

Transport / Shipping can be organised on Buyer's behalf, at Buyer's cost.
