Current customer rating: (163 votes) based on
Just 37. 00 miles from new.
Owned from new by a Vice Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire until 1994 during which time it was used in his official capacities to convey members of the Royal family including Prince Charles. Princess Ann and the Duke of Edinburgh.
One elderly private owner since who covered less than 5. 00 miles in almost 20 years.
Totally original retaining factory fitted panels and glass.
Always garaged. practically unused and kept under covers in dry storage for the last 10 years.
Just fully re-commissioned for use by our Jaguar specialist with service and new MOT.
VERY ORIGINAL. VERY CORRECT. ULTIMATE PROVENANCE AND JUST GORGEOUS!
Enhancements fitted pre delivery were not the usual factory options that were generally available and required an individual and rare factory order.
These were an electric sliding steel sunshine roof. in addition to the vinyl roof that was a factory option. chrome bonnet trim with correct matching leaping cat mascot and swage lines along entire length of body sides (usually only available on the more luxurious Vanden Plas and Daimler Double Six models) the unique style Daimler doors cards with black top section and an almost unheard of in the early seventies cruise control (untested).
Also ordered and supplied prior to delivery were gold coach lines. which in 1975 were not stick on vinyl but would have been hand painted by a sign writer. Almost forty years later the majority of theses hand painted coach lines remain with the car .
The first owner. managing Director of a textile mill. first registered the Jaguar in his company name. Although despite being registered in the company name the car was not in fact very often used for Company business but more civil duties. The car was cherished and cared for with a passion. When he retired in 1982 and became High Sheriff of West Yorkshire. he car was transferred into the owners private name and address.
The owner now retired from business had freed up more time to perform his civil duties and went on from being High Sheriff to become Vice Lord-Lieutenant of West Yorkshire.
Lord-lieutenants are the monarch's representatives in their lieutenancy. It is their foremost duty to uphold the dignity of the Crown. They are appointed for life. although the customary age of retirement is 75 and the sovereign may remove them
The responsibilities of lord-lieutenants include:
Arranging visits of members of the Royal family and escorting royal visitors;
Presenting medals and awards on behalf of the Sovereign. and advising on Honours nominations;
Participating in civic. voluntary and social activities within the lieutenancy;.
d. and pampered with a passion it could hold its own with the best of the best when it came to Transporting members of the monarchy. “The Best Car in the World” and British to boot!
Many Royals. dignitaries and VIP's would have been passengers in this car it is known and documented that Prince Philip The Duke of Edinburgh. Anne The Princess Royal and Prince Charles The Prince of Wales were amongst them.
The second owners tells us that during the first few years of ownership the furthest he ever travelled was on regular Sunday outings to Harrogate during the summer months. a 70 mile round trip. MOT's in the history file up to 2002 with the mileage then at 36. 21 support this. The total number of miles covered whilst in the care of the second owner for almost 20 years was just over 5. 00.
In later years as the owner reached his seventies the car was hardly used at all. in fact from 2003 until its MOT in 2008 (37. 96 miles) it never left the confines of the dry storage in an industrial unit. owned by the second owner. where in was stored covered in dust sheets.
The MOT in June last year records the mileage at 37. 03 and today the genuine mileage is just 37. 04.
Today the car is presented in outstanding original condition it retains original panels and in places its Browns Lane applied paint finish.
XJ6 Series II Jaguars are becoming rare now. They have really come into their own in the last year or so helped by the classic press proclaiming them as the Jaguar XJ6 to have and the one most likely to be a wise investment for the future. Unrestored original cars are rare and exceptionally low mileage examples with low ownership very. very rare indeed.
