This first series 1970 Jaguar XJ6 with the 2.8-litre XK engine and manual gearbox is the property of a businessman, who has been fastidious with the upkeep, seeing to it that anything the car needs, has been done.
This car is Swiss all the way - it was first sold by Emil Frey SA garages. The first owner had it treated with Dinetrol rust prevention (certificated in the history) and so is one of those rare Jaguars that have not experienced rust at all. The first owner only drove 22,000 km before sadly passing away and his son decided to keep the car in the family for nearly 40 years, but without driving it once!
But why? Well, when the son first got his licence he asked his father to let him drive the Jaguar, but as long as his father was alive, he wouldn’t allow it. After his father’s passing, he kept the car registered and serviced it every year, but kept the promise he gave to his father as a teenager, to never drive it. We think this speaks to the character of the owner and it is definitely apparent, when you see the vehicle. The documents also indicated it was bought with all the extra equipment and the most luxurious interior the first series had to offer.
In 2010 the son sold it to its current owner, with the entire history fact-checked by Jaguar specialists. A true car fanatic, the current owner specializes in collectable cars, so we believe him when he says the car is in near perfect condition.
He had it completely refurbished in 2015; the interior was restored, refreshed but kept original and is fully documented (read on for more details of the renovation).
It’s been driven with care and properly garaged and maintained, everything a classic car needs for a good life. It is currently registered as an Historic Vehicle in Switzerland and classified according to FIVA Class F Note 2.
