The first XJ was launched in 1968; a designation which has been
used for successive Jaguar flagship models ever since. and was also
the last Jaguar saloon to have had the input of Sir William Lyons. br/>the company's founder. In late 1979. the XJ was face-lifted and was
known as the 'Series III. ' Using the long-wheelbase version of the
car. the XJ6 incorporated a subtle redesign by Pininfarina.
Externally. the most obvious changes over the Series II were flush
door handles for increased safety. a one-piece front door glass. a
grill with only vertical vanes and a revised roofline with narrower
door frames and increased glass area. The introduction of the
Series III model also saw the option of a sunroof and cruise
control for the first time on any XJ models and. of course. the
option of that creamy 5. 3 litre. V12 engine.

This fabulous example was originally was ordered by Mr.
Joseph Sikorski (of Helicopter fame) through Jaguar/Saab dealer. br/>Cooke Motors. Calgary. British Columbia. Enclosed is the original
supplying dealer invoice of CAN$56. 00. Optional extras included
heated seats. radar detector. body mouldings. Jaguar floor mats and
a large leaping Jaguar mascot. The body colour is Tungsten Grey
with Saville Grey leather interior throughout. Sikorski then
relocated himself and his family to England however the attachment
to the car was so strong. he had it air-freighted as well. It was
delivered to HR Owen in 1998 at 69. 56km where. as per type
approval. a new speedometer head and necessary other conversions
were completed. Paperwork exists to back up the original mileage of
43. 06 combined with the more current 8. 65 to total just
52. 71.

The car was then sold Mr. W. Howell in November 2005 with 5. 12m
recorded and has very little use since although the MoT test
history was kept up to date with a total use of just over 3. 00m in
the past ten years. during which time. it was stored in a
dehumidified garage. It has recently undergone a total brake
replacement (with calliper overhaul) including new front and rear
discs and pads. rear inner discs. a major service with all oils. br/>filters. plugs. the ignition system replacement with new HT leads. br/>coils and distributor caps. fuel pump replacement and front
suspension top mounts as well as a new battery. It will be supplied
with a current V5C. a new MoT test certificate as well as a
Jaguar/Daimler Heritage Certificate-all detailed in 40 page
presentation folder.
