This is not a typical Jaguar that is being offering for sale. This 1985 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas is for the collector, enthusiast, connoisseur who wants and appreciates the absolute finest example known to exist. To replicate this car's quality, pedigree, and documentation is nearly impossible. If you're looking for the finest example of a Series III XJ6 Vanden Plas, then this may be exactly what you're looking for. This 10,000 mile example has had only one other owner. The original owner of this car treated this as his passion and hobby. The extraordinarily thorough documentation on this car shows that this gentleman had a genuine love for maintaining this car to the highest possible degree. The documentation starts with a copy of the certificate of origin from Jaguar to the selling dealer. Every piece of documentation in the original purchase is preserved as well as every piece of maintenance history, and literally everything he's done to the car throughout its life. In his passion for maintaining this car, he has shown it at Jaguar Concour events more than a dozen times. I have copies of all of the judging forms including its most recent judging in October, 2017. The last time it was judged scored 99.97. From the records I have it never scored below a 97.93. These judging forms not only verify its history, but also how it has been maintained throughout its life. In this judging format, it is critiqued by Jaguar experts that are the most discriminating and look for the most minor flaws. This type of pedigree cannot be replicated. It is recorded in the JCNA records. It goes without saying, that this Jaguar is 100 percent original. There is no evidence anywhere of any paint work, damage, or any other corrections ever made to it. As you can see in the photographs the black paint gleams against the flawless chrome. All of the moldings, gaskets, and pieces of trim are as they were in 1985. Inside, the doeskin leather and overlays are just magnificent. The carpets are the original wool for the front and rear passangers mats, which are very rare and incredible. The interior virtually shows no wear. As expected, the wood is free of any cracks, chips, or flaws. Mechanically this car is just as magnificent as it is cosmetically. The original alloy wheels have no flaws on them anywhere. Not a single scratch. Sitting on them are the original Pirelli P5 tires that this car came with. These tires were kept on for originality and when shown in a preservation class they add points. It should be noted, I do not recommend driving on these tires. Having said that to drive this car at low speed and short distances they are fine. However, I strongly advise against any long distance or high-speed driving on them. As expected, accompanying this car are all of the books, keys, and accessories that it originally came with. I have a leather binder that has a plastic sleeve for every piece of documentation on the car. It is far too expensive for me to scan every piece of paper I have on it. As expected, this leather binder will go to the new owner along with everything else. This could possibly be the finest Series III in the United States still in existance. This Jaguar should go to a new home where will it will be preserved and appreciated the way it has been throughout its life. Please only contact me if you are seriously interested. I don't want to waste my time just showing it off.
