For sale is a 1978 Jaguar XJ12 4 door saloon. We've owned the car about 12 months and in that time we have recommissioned the car so that it can be used every day.
The car has had 1 owner before us who leased the car from new and they bought it and kepted it until 2011.
When we got the car there was quite alot of rust around the headlight bowls in the front wings, the sills and the rear arches. We've had all the rust cut out and replaced with new metal and the areas have then been re-sprayed. We have tried to keep the rest of the body work as original as possible as apart from a couple of small blemishes the rest of the body work is in great condition for being from 1978.
We have had a new headlining fitted in light grey as the original was sagging quite badly, the rest of the interior leather and wood is original and in great condition.
All the electric windows and interior lights work fine.
The Vinyl roof is in great condition as is the chrome which is all good with no rust or pitting on the bumpers.
Mechanically all we have done to the car is give the engine a service, replaced the spark plugs and the thermostat.
The original owner had new copper breaklines fitted to the rear breaks not long before we bought the car.
All 4 tyres on the car are fairly new and the spare wheel is brand new.
The car has only covered about a 1000 miles in the last 4 years but we took her to Essex last weekend in a round trip of about 750 miles and the car ran like a watch all the way.
