Jaguar Daimler XJ Series 2
Double Six Drop Head Coupe

After 5 years in store, this stunning Daimler Double Six drop head coupe, is being offered for sale. Currently its being re-commissioned with a full service, fuel flush, axle, brake overhauls as well a full stainless steel exhaust system, newly chromed bumpers and set of 5 refurbished diamond cut Kent alloy wheels and new tyres. The car has had 5 owners in its 39 years and has been in the hands of the current owner for the past 9 years. The conversion was completed many years ago, being structurally built to Avon Stevens specification. Also at that time, it had a total bare metal restoration and re-spray keeping the original colour, black.
This rare version of the series 2 XJ cars was only produced from 1975 to 1977. The short run of production due to the 70s fuel crisis which caused a lack of demand, makes this model not only one of the best looking, but also the rarest XJ. A total number of only 408 Daimler Double Six versions were built, which with the normal loss over the years makes it a rare car indeed.
The conversion of the coupe, to a drop head coupe was on the cards soon after release. It lends its self so well for this. Such a rare vehicle, as you will see should you look for one for sale. The coach builders, Avon Stevens of Warwick had been given the honour of being the authorised conversion company by Jaguar. The conversion was so successful it gave a more rigid body after the roof had been removed, than the original car. This car has a hood frame that follows the coupe roof line, this being a main feature of the cars lines.
Structurally this car is absolutely solid and has always been and youll struggle to find a coupe as clean as this underneath. Mechanically, the super smooth V12 starts on the button, idles with barely a sound and pulls strong throughout the rev range.
By the 1st of November the car will be ready. For further information contact, email, leo_jennings@msn.com Phone +4477100 78200
