This rare S600 coupe was offered on Ebay USA in July 2019. The seller had been using it as a daily driver, but it has relatively low km, but looks like it needs a bit of a tidy up. Certainly a future calssic. It does need some more appropriately sized wheels, however.. The advertiser at the time made the following comments about the car:
Spotted on Craigslist in September 2018, asking $18,500 (USD) - 1977 Jaguar XJ6 Coupe Series II - Signal red with black vinyl top. 4.2 litre, Automatic, matching numbers, all original with 1 repaint, 86k original miles. Complete mechanical history including original bill of sale. Former Concours d'elegance car. Garaged it's entire life. Excellent condition.
The new owner subsequently contacted us and made a few updates - car is now located in British Columbia, Canada.
This immaculate Studebaker Daytona convertible is one of just 702 convertibles built in 1964, and only a couple of hundred have been accounted for by those maintaining a register. In fact, we've only managed to add 8 to our small Daytona convertible register over the last four years. If you're looking to stand out from the crowd, the Daytona is a worthy alternative with plenty of performance to match it's looks. It's also truly a unique car - usually the only one of it's kind when you turn up to a car show.
This particular car currently resides in Ontario, Canada, with the current owner confirming the vehicle was originally delivered new in the city of High Point, North Carolina.
The car has been restored to a very high standard, and has only 61,000 original miles on the clock. The body has been finished in in its original Bordeau Red, with a black top. The red vinyl interior trim is equally immaculate, and overall the car is in perfect factory condition, ready for immediate enjoyment by the successful purchaser.
Under the hood is the factory Studebaker 289 V8 engine. However, this one's particularly special, being factory fitted with the 290hp R2 supercharger package - one of only 12 convertibles to receive the package. The R2 specification is identified by the oval R2 badges behind the front wheel arches. Power is channelled through Studebaker's 3-speed Borg-Warner transmission, and the car has power drum brakes and power steering.
As Studebaker's final factory convertible, this model holds a special place in the collector car market, which is starting to see some reasonable value increases. Unfortunately, with low such low production numbers there isn't a plentiful supply of Daytona convertibles, and several examples we've seen over the years have needed significant work. Take for example this neglected Moonlight Silver convertible spotted a couple of years ago. So when an good one comes along, it presents a fantastic opportunity to get into a car where the hard work has been done for you, at a fraction of the price that the work would realistically cost.
