1974 Jaguar XJ12L Series 2

An incredible original survivor

Rare LWB, V12 carburettor example
Just 4 previous owners
Time-warp original trim

The long wheelbase Jaguar XJ12: the rare Executive model and the reserve of CEOs and cabinet ministers. Yet this example is rarer still, being beautifully original and having covered 27,236 miles at the last count.

An early 1974 car, this XJ12L is one of the few and desirable carburettor examples made during the first year of Series 2 production. Finished elegantly in British Racing Green and with its charming original green leather, this XJ is the epitome of 1970s luxury motoring and still looks at home prowling around Parliament Square.

On file there are the 3,000-mile and 6,000-mile service reports from the 1970s stamped by the John Coombs garage in Guilford, which had of course enjoyed a particularly special relationship with the Jaguar marque in both racing and road car capacities. Quite nicely these Coombs stamps also feature in the original service book, which forms part of the full and seldom seen original book pack.

Also on file is a short biography from the Jaguar Drivers Club, which used the car on a show stand in 1984, authenticating the car's originality and describing it as a multiple award winner. It is not difficult to see why!

Many XJ12s have simply not survived, with fates sealed by oil crises and the second hand market, but this Jaguar stands among the very best. Its exemplary original condition is without doubt due to it having had only four doting owners from new, two for 18 years each, all of whom ensured that this car survived as a benchmark example.
