March 18, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
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 originally listed in February 2021 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 anywhere.
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. k with the purchase!
Here’s the seller’s description:
“Jaguar 1987 Great running car all original 18,600 miles. Basically a show car. I’ve owned for over 10 years.
2 sets of rims & original lambswool floor Mats“
Show or go: what would you do with this immaculate Jag? Comment below and let us know!
Can you give me seller’s info? I want to track this car down and buy it asap.
Or otherwise find another low mileage, pristine ‘87 Vanden Plas, preferably in Alpine Green.
Justin, we’re sorry but out of respect for sellers’ privacy, we do not keep their contact information posted on our Craigslist “Classifinds” once they either delete their listing or it expires on Craigslist. As a general rule of thumb, if we find a similar ’87 Jag, we will feature it on a Friday.
