Jaguar XJ 3.4 Saloon: A 1970’s Jaguar XJ. Looks to be well cared for and maintained. Very classy indeed.
Of the rarer Jaguar XJ series, is the XJC 2 door coupe. I was lucky to spot this one recently and it looked to be in pretty good condition, presumably some restoration had been done to this particular vehicle. It was equipped with the standard 4.2 litre in-line 6 cylinder engine… or so the badge said on the back.
The Jaguar XJC was produced between 1975 and 1978 with total production of all XJC series totalling a little over 10,400 vehicles. Of those, only 241 were officially imported in Australia.
The Jaguar Car Club of WA held its annual 2011 Concours & Car Show at Houghtons Winery, Middle Swan on 9 November. The event was held in conjunction with the 175 years anniversary celebration for local winery, Houghtons, so this ensured at good crowd.
Location was pleasure, with plenty of facilities available and parking was breeze with the top paddock open and made available for car parking.
There was a good turn out of old and new Jaguars from XK’s to XJ’s and E types aplenty.
