Jaguar XJ6 4.2 in original condition complete checkbook from 3rd hand (1981)
In 1968, the Jaguar XJ6, the last design of William Lyons, the founder of Jaguar, was proudly presented in Paris. Over the years, this car underwent a number of model upgrades, including the introduction of Series II in 1973 and Series III in 1978. Series III of the XJ model, which included the XJ6, received a styling overhaul with larger windows, a new grille, extended taillights and rubber bumpers. In addition, the carburetor was replaced with a fuel injection system, resulting in increased power and speed for the third generation. In total, nearly 120,000 examples of the Jaguar XJ6 were produced by the end of production in 1992.
