JAGUAR XJ12L Series II 5.3 V12 Automatic LWB Saloon SOLD (1975)
|This Jaguar XJ12L Series ll 5.3 V12 Automatic LWB saloon is now a very rare car.|
It is believed to have been owned by Jaguar for the first year of it's life whereafter it was acquired in August 1976 by a businessman based on Westminster Bridge Road London SE1. It was in the ownership of this gentleman for 35 years until it was found in his garage in 2011 by a classic car enthusiast. It had been unused for 10 years as the businessman had died some time before.
This enthusiast purchased the car from the businessmans family and recomissioned it by cleaning the fuel lines, rebuilding the carburettors, renewing the petrol pumps, fitting four new tyres and renewing brake pads, suspension bushes etc. It then passed its first MOT inspection for a number of years with a mileage reading of 27534.
Over the next four years this enthusiast showed the car at classic car events and increased the mileage to 29380.
The history file contains the current V5 showing the ownership from August 1976 along with the invoices for the parts bought to carry out the recomissioning in 2011, the MOT certificates from that date, the current MOT and some recent invoices for parts and work carried out in order to pass its current MOT.
The current MOT runs until May 2017 and rules that commenced in October 2014 mean that the car will be licensed for twelve months from the date of sale for the new owner at no cost as the car qualifies for the Historic Taxation class. The current recorded mileage is 29400.
This sale represents a rare oportunity to acquire a classic Jaguar at a price that leaves room for improvment and should prove to be an excellent investment.
