The XJ line has had a long history, with the first model released in 1968. The original model was the last Jaguar saloon to have had the input of Sir William Lyons, the company's founder, and the model has been featured in countless media and high profile appearances.

In late 1979, the XJ was facelifted again, and was known as the "Series III."

Using the long-wheelbase version of the car, the XJ6 incorporated a subtle redesign by Pininfarina.

Externally, the most obvious changes over the SII were the thicker and more incorporated rubber bumpers with decorative chrome only on the top edge, flush door handles for increased safety, a one-piece front door glass without a separate 1/4 light, a grille with only vertical vanes, reverse lights moved from the boot plinth to the larger rear light clusters and a revised roofline with narrower door frames and increased glass area.

There were three engine variants, including the 5.3 L V12, the 4.2 L straight-six and 3.4 L straight-six. The larger six-cylinder, and V12 models incorporated Bosch fuel injection (made under license by Lucas) while the smaller six-cylinder was carbureted. Production of the Series III XJ continued until 1992 with the V12 engine. 132,952 Series III cars were built, 10,500 with the V12 engine. In total between 1968 and 1992 there were around 318,000 XJ6 and XJ12 Jaguars produced.

This one owner car has been pampered and babied its entire life by its original owner. The car is in excellent codntion with only the most minor of cosmetic flaws-the wood console needs reveneered, the headliner sags slightly, and the right rear bumper end need replaced. Otherwise this car will clean up and polish up nicely.

It runs beautifully, starts right up, goes down the road straight and true, the air blows cold, all the windows and top work. This car would make a great daily driver that will only appreciate as long as you continue to keep it garaged!
