Concours Caliber: 1987 Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Series III Vanden Plas 19K Mile – $19,700
If you’re going to dive into the deep end of vintage Jaguar ownership, then you better do it with low mileage, ultra-luxury Vanden Plas edition such as this 1987 Series III XJ6 currently listed here in here on Craigslist in Cannonsburg, Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh) with an asking price of $19,700. Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their XJ6 priced between this guide’s #2 “Excellent” estimate of $16,000 and its #1 “Concours” appraisal of $24,900. Stuck at bargain-basement prices for years, six-cylinder versions of this old school luxury car on now on the rise and this example, with less than 19K original miles may be one of the nicest available abywhere.
Here’s Hagerty Insurance’s Take on these Series III XJ6s:
Long-term ownership by a fastidious owner of an extremely low mileage, ultra-luxury Jag; it just doesn’t get better if you’re willing to put up with Jaguar idiosyncrasies that likely plague every example in some way, shape, or form. The current caretaker hints their XJ6 is a show car, so if you like participating in Concours events, this Jag is for you. If you are serious about buying this car, you can start the conversation by emailing the private seller. When you connect, please remember to mention you saw their XJ6 Vanden Plas featured here on GuysWithRides.com. Good luck with the purchase!
