1973 Aust Complianced XJ6 Series 1 4.2L Sedan 96,000 miles
This vehicle has had a very pampered life. Its first owner was a SEQld country doctor who drove it very little. Years later he traded it for an LTD. In fact the local Ford dealer principal kept the vehicle for himself, but hardly drove it. Upon selling the dealership, the owner sold the XJ6 to a local. I then purchased the car from that local about 10 years ago, then with only 93,000 miles 'on the clock'. Operating 2 Brisbane panel shops at the time, and managing a Touring Car race team, I stripped the car's exterior right back to bare metal, in order to confirm the vehicle's top condition. Discovered 3 very minor 'taps', but most importantly, no rust. I decided to repaint the vehicle in new Jag Polar White to enhance its appearance, whilst replacing most of the car's chrome body trim.
After also stripping out the car's interior, an XJ40 was purchased in order to use its front and rear seats for the series 1. My, arguably the country's best upholsterer, stripped the front and rear seats, added extra padding to the seat frames, transforming the STD seating into racing style bucket seats, covered in A1 quality fawn coloured Connelly leather (100% leather / NO vinyl) matched with light coffee coloured leather contrast piping. Front and rear seating headrests come in similarly made leather styling.
The vehicle's interior and exterior has been tastefully customized, but little used and enjoyed.
New specially made fawn coloured double vehicle carpeting / new ceiling head lining / new dash top / customized carpet - Connolly leather - chrome door trim / etc.
New dark window tinting / alloy mag wheels / headlight covers / etc.
2 new fuel tanks fitted with sensors / overhauled SU carby system / new alternator / new starter motor / fuel system flushed / plus a few replacement parts playing up through 'lack of use'.
Heading overseas soon, and never really getting the time to enjoy driving my XJ6, I want someone to 'steal' it from me, someone who has the time to take her on long drives ion the country and can give her a good home.
