RARE Original 1978 JAGUAR XJ6 Series 2 with incredible history!

Where will you find another one like this? Read on.

The "Red Rocket" is so reliable. in recent years it has traveled across Australia from its home on the Gold Coast (in Queensland) on road trips to Adelaide in South Australia. up to North Queensland (Port Douglas) and many. many places in between. I would not hesitate to confidently drive it to anywhere in Australia!

I doubt that there is another one of these in Australia with a completely unbroken 39 year history - from purchase  in 1978 until today this has been our pride and joy and always such a pleasure to drive. All these years (up until this year) it has been in daily use (mostly highway driving). but age and limited means have caught up with us and we have to let our beloved "Red Rocket" find a new home.

Serviced regularly (every 5. 00km) by the same JAGUAR specialist for the whole 39 years of its life - you just won't find another one like this!. It has only broken down once in 39 years. when the head gasket went (after 300. 00 + km travelled) and we had the engine completely rebuilt to repair it.

Rebuilt engine. rebuilt transmission. Sovereign  alloy wheels (lighter. so better fuel economy). re-trimmed interior. keyless entry. working air-conditioning (but will need gas topped-up to get it colder). This car has NEVER been in an accident and has its ORIGINAL PAINT! It only has one tiny bit of surface rust in the RHS rear wheel arch (no bigger than pinhead size) and this has not gotten any bigger in 20 years.

The car has been insured for $14. 00. to give you an idea of its value.

The car is not currently registered (we could not afford to anymore) and the registration plates are not included in the sale. It will not need much work to pass inspection. we are told it only needs the steering rack rubber gaiters replaced (about $50) and new front sway bar bushes (around $100 fitted). It does not leak oil. use oil or blow any smoke. There is no overheating and the engine is quiet and purrs like a JAGAUR should.

This is a genuine. reluctant sale by pensioners who can't afford to own two cars anymore. it is like losing a family member. but we hope it goes to someone who will love it as much as we have. Will consider driving the car to deliver to you (even interstate) if you cover cost of the permit. fuel and a cheap flight home. Happy bidding!
