1974+ S2, apparently with US bumpers. Not sure what the local spec (or assembly?) was.

I think this is just a UK version only :think:

It is RHD so not a US-spec car but these bumpers never used on UK cars and (I think) match 74my US style. Am assuming ZA assembly of some sort. The other wilder possibility is an imported NZ-assembly car - am not sure of details, but I think NZ never updated their S2 body to S3 but adopted S3 trim and bumpers.

Why haven't you entered this yet? As an admin you might as well go ahead and do it so others don't have to (I've just done so)

Because I'm still unsure of local trim details and where assembled (but ZA assembly looks likely). 74 S2 is a starting point, not a full answer.

Wiki says Series II manufactured in South Africa until 1981. These bumpers came in for 1975 on the US market. No idea for South Africa. A random thought may be that if such bumpers were not legally mandated as in the United States of Ugly Bumpers they may have introduced these at the end of the production to make the local S2 look less old-fashioned in the face of the new S3.

But you can still enter that anyway.

@GMANN - but then it looks solved and no-one looks any further.
@Sandie - that's the scenario I was looking for - extended local S2 continuation after S3 introduced for UK in May 79. My guess is now therefore 1980-81 for this car.

Comment from here - "29 APRIL 2014 - Chas King says: I am interested in the Jaguar XJ6 production at Blackheath. Worldwide the XJ6 Series 2 ended in 1979 and the Series 3 began in 1980. However, at Blackheath it appears that the same Series 2 vehicle was retained and, where practical, some of the Series 3 modifications (bumpers, petrol caps)were tacked on and the hybrid was classed as a Series 3. This could have been due to a Leyland decision not to tool up for the Series 3 model due to the political situation here. I have just bought a 1980 (according to the AARTO registration papers) XJ6 built at Blackheath which has features of both the Series 2 and 3. The Leyland plate affixed to the RHS engine compartment does not have a normal VIN as we know it. As a buyer I am no longer sure of what I have bought!"
