1976 Jaguar XJ6C, Series II, 20k Miles, Fantastic Survivor!!


Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!


This is a claimed original 20,000 mile California car that with very small details can be a consistent show winner. The previous Southern California owner owned it from new (33 years). Debra Cohen bought this Jaguar new in Los Angeles, CA. She kept the XJ6C in Marina Del Rey until 2010, when it was donated to the world renowned Peterson Automotive Museum Foundation.

The XJ6C, otherwise known as the XJ Coupes, are a rare two-door pillar-less coupe version of the standard four door saloons. This motorcar has never had any signs of rust or rot and has never been in an accident. This can be one of the finest XJ6C available today and one of the finest examples that we have seen.  VIN: UG2J51582

This 1976 XJ6C is painted in archetypal British Racing Green. With barely 20,000 miles showing, it is generally in very good condition. The brightwork looks very nice, but paint and contours are both very good to excellent. The paint is largely original with some areas having been touched up over the years. It has a gorgeous original tan leather interior with matching carpet and cloth headliner. The wood and leather are all original and in very good to excellent condition. The wood has no cracking and looks deep and rich.

Features include a heated rear window, clock, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power windows and an Alpine CD stereo. Fewer than 10,000 XJ coupes were built during the model’s lifespan. This is an excellent chance to acquire an excellent one. The air conditioning works very well and blows cold.

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 CD player 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 tan 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. The wheels and radial tires are in excellent condition. All the lights and gauges are working well as you would expect.

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 unless entered into a Post-War Preservation Class. 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. Unfortunately, we do not have the manuals, books and maintenance records for the car. We know that the Jaguar has been registered in California since at least 1985. One Southern California owner enjoyed the car from 1985 until 2013.

We have priced this right for a fast sale.  For a valuation source please refer to the Hagerty Guide at: http://www.hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch/Report?vc=854328

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.

If you are serious about this, hurry up.  Where else can you find another BRG and tan California XJ6C with about 20,000 original miles?  For more information on this fabulous Jaguar, please call Harry Clark at 602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.
