1975 Jaguar XJ6C, Rare Coupe, Calif. Car, Show Winner!
The XJC, otherwise known as the XJ Coupes, are a rare two-door pillar-less coupe version of the standard four door saloons. This example is a sympathetically restored California car that has been a consistent show winner. This motorcar has never had any signs of rust or rot and has never been in an accident. This is one of the finest XJ6C available today and one of the finest examples that we have seen.
The car was stripped to bare metal and repainted its original maroon.
This car has all the options, and many upgrades. The features included with this motorcar include: power windows, power assisted rack and pinion steering, adjustable steering column, power four wheel ventilated disc brakes, power door locks, 36 ft turning circle, full gauge set, automatic temperature control A/C and heating, AM/FM Cassette four speaker system, and the traditionally elegant burled walnut fascia. It also includes the center console and lockable glove box. The seats are all faced with the finest Connolly hides.
This XJC has the original inline 6 cylinder engine with twin overhead cam that comes standard with the famous Jaguar purr while driving down the motorway. It has benefited from wider radial tires for an improved ride and more defined look. In addition, the vinyl cover on the roof has been removed for more modern look and additional sound proofing has been added under the bonnet providing a nice, quiet ride.
The sympathetic restoration includes many NOS parts including: a rebuilt front end, rubber bushings throughout, the transmission has been upgraded to GM specifications, new electrical switches, wires, motors, cooling fans, brakes, shocks, springs, steering rack, air condition and carbs.
This is a no excuses car that is comfortable for touring and will perform well at most car shows. It can be entered in concours event but will be less competitive. The motorcar handles great and is very smooth and quiet running. Everything is functioning and it has proven to be very dependable and well sorted. It comes with a file that has over 16k in receipts from the work completed in the past few years.
According to Paul Phillips, a noted coupe expert who runs a coupe parts house and coupe registry, there are less than 200 un-rusted coupes extant. If you are interested in an XJC, this is a wonderful opportunity.
