 27 years documentation since new. All original.   Excellent Condition. Rare color combo. Everything works!  Last production year of the Series III. Only Jaguar model designed by Pinninfarina. For more detail. read the detailed history report that follows this short summary:

1987 is the last production year for the XJ6 Series III. The Series III is the only Jaguar model ever to be designed by Pininfarina of Italy. As a Vanden Plas. it is even rarer. And this XJ6's superb condition is testimony to the care provided by the original San Francisco socialite who got the car as a gift from her husband (along with a mink coat in junk)! The paint and body condition is near perfect. The Satin Beige metallic color and Doeskin Connelly leather interior are both rare and highly desirable. Its leather and wood interior finishes are also in excellent condition; no rips. cracks. punctures. or tears (save a quarter-size scrape on the far left corner of the back bench seat which is a minor repair through an upholstery shop). The wood has been well maintained with its original deep African walnut luster; no warping. cracking or breaks in the clear coat.

The car has zero rust and no mechanical or electronic issues.   EVERYTHING WORKS! The service records for the vehicle are VERY complete with receipts and service detail for virtually every interval or repair since it was originally sold.   Since my ownership in the last year. it has received extensive maintenance to include transmission servicing and new rear end including Jaguar-brand springs. adjustable gas shocks. ceramic brake pads. Bremo rotors. Girling caliper kits. radius arm bushings. cage mounts. differential seal and output bearing. crush sleeve. grade 8 bolts & Ny-locks. exhaust sealing rings and more.

Other service performed and documented in the last 2. 00 miles includes front end work such as: front brake rotors. front brake pads. front sub-frame mounts. lower ball joint. steering rack mounts. master brake cylinder. cam follower kit. alternator. alternator belt. four front upper shock bushings. two fuel solenoids. nbsp;trip computer. re-veneered center console. AC expansion-valve. headlight  relay. window lockout switch. right-front door lock actuator. two speedometer transducers. four drive belts. air pump hose. rebuilt AC compressor. two wiper blades. oil cap. oil filter. air filter and oil and lube service.

The original dealer sticker is included in the vehicle's extensive documentation (new car dealer invoice--$45. 68 out-the-door with Dayton Chrome Wire Wheels) with all of the original Jaguar owner's manuals. booklets and service logs (with dealer's stamps). Even the original Jaguar audio introductory cassette and cassette cleaning kit are included along with the original three sets of keys on leather Jaguar-issue key rings.

All in all. it adds up to a driving experience that is likely better than the day it was manufactured. In short. it would be hard to find a more original XJ6 Series 3 Jaguar or one that has been so well cared for and serviced. The local Central Arizona Jaguar Club "chief of concours judging" states that it's one of the best he's reviewed. He further states that it is sure to be a top concours competitor should one desire to enter it into competition. And while most XJ6 Jaguars have a sagging backend. this vehicle sits at the height specified by the factory.   This XJ6 shifts smoothly. accelerates steadily to deliver an opulent ride and quiet ride like no other. And wherever it stops. a crowd gathers.

The bottom line; this auction winner will receive real value.  In 2012. nbsp;Bonham auction in Scottsdale sold an XJ6 S-3 for $27. 00! In short. this is the right time to buy a collector-quality XJ6 Series III. But finding one with this much documented history (buyer receives a three-ring binder full of receipts and historical repair documentation). recent extensive maintenance and life-long care is extraordinarily rare indeed!
