THE STORY

Manufactured by Jaguar Cars in Coventry, England between 1979 and 1992, the Jaguar XJ Series III was the manufacturer’s flagship 4-door model and an impressive luxury salon for its time crammed full of refined features and creature comforts.

The Pininfarina designed Series III production run ran between 1979 and 1987. Styling improvements over the Series II included a grill with only vertical vanes, a revised roofline with narrower door frames and increased glass area and flush door handles.

The cars took on the appearance of a big cat ready to pounce and the view from the driver’s seat gives the impression you are continually propelling forward.

Theses rear wheel drive cars were powered by either Jaguar’s 3.4 litre or 4.2 litre inline 6-cylinder engine. The smaller engines were carburetted whereas the larger 4.2 litre was coupled to a Lucas-Bosch fuel injected system.

The car’s transmission was a Borg Warner 3-speed automatic, brakes were 4-wheel disc with power booster and the wheels were a unique and spectacular alloy “Pepperpot” design with Jaguar emblem centres.

THE CAR 

This is restored Jaguar Series III XJ6 with the larger fuel injected 4.2 litre 6-cylinder engine. The car was resprayed approximately 7 years ago and the paint is excellent.

Purchased by the current owner 8 years ago, it was used in a wedding car business in NSW. The restoration has been continual and many receipts are to hand for the work done in SA.

The car is fully optioned with beautiful new red leather upholstery, deep pile carpets, power sunroof, rear headrests, climate control air conditioning, power steering, power windows, telescopic steering wheel, lumbar support seats, working trip computer, cruise control and more.

The ride quality is an outstanding balance of a smooth ride and sporty handling. Stopping is provided by power assisted 4-wheel disc brakes.

Work done includes new read leather interior, reconditioning of the cylinder head and valves, new stainless-steel exhaust with extractors, new master cylinder and brake booster, ceramic coated paint, new tyres, refurbished air conditioning and new hood lining.

Currently on historic registration in South Australia, the car has travelled 236,398 kms but only 4,000 kms since the majority of work was done.
