For many of us, this represents the best of Jaguar sedans. This 1985 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas is from the final years of the original Series sedans and it represents European motoring elegance at an affordable price.
Series III cars carried all the best elements of the XJ line. It had the unmistakable classic features like the front sheetmetal that contoured to the quad headlight design, the sleek cat-like profile, and smooth rear end that tapered inward to give this sedan a final sporty touch. The Series III model was slightly taller than its predecessors for more comfort and larger glass, but it never lost that original British charm. This example is quite complete from the leaper hood ornament to the dual exhaust tips. And while a respray later in life gives this a more vivid color than the factory Sage Green, it's those genuine wire wheels that are really the attention-grabbers.
A proper Jaguar mixes luxury and performance into one distinct package, and the interior holds that up nicely. The seats were reupholstered later in life to make sure they continue to make a nice first impression. There is a long list of luxury features, including power windows & locks, cruise control, electric rear defogger, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and provisions for R134a air condition (will need servicing to blow ideally cold.) This is a Vanden Plas model, which adds even more prestige to the already premium Jaguar name. It has exclusive features, including more wood trim and rear seats that offer a level of comfort like individual buckets. But a Jaguar is really about the driving experience. Getting behind the wheel feels a bit like a sports car as the dual-spoke steering wheel is mounted on a tilt/telescopic column to give you an excellent view of the full gauge package with large speedo and tach.
Jaguars were renowned for the smooth and spirited inline six-cylinder motors. The 4.2-liter under the hood of this XJ6 carries that tradition with modern fuel-injected power. Not only do the color-matched cam covers give this a cool look, but also the belts, hoses, and wires look good from proper maintenance. More than just fuel-injected power, the XJ6 is coveted because these have always been one of the best handling luxury sedans straight from the factory. A fully independent suspension, including Jaguar's hallmark rear end, really allows this hold the road with cat-like reflexes. There's also power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes that are all part of vintage luxury that wants you to enjoy the drive.
