XJ6 LWB S1

Jaguar XJ 6

The Jaguar XJ6 saloon was introduced in September 1968. We manufacture trim upholstery for the first two Series:

  • Series 1 / Series I – manufactured from 1968 to 1973
  • Series 2 / Series II – manufactured from 1973 to 1979

In 1972, a long wheel base option was made available, providing a modest increase in leg room for back seat passengers. We will therefore need to know whether your car is a Series 1 / I or Series 2 / II and whether it is a short wheel base or long wheel base Jaguar XJ 6.

Some of the parts for a XJ 12 are common to the XJ 6 so we may be able to help you with trim upholstery for your XJ 12.
