1974 As Smooth As Silk! For Sale

There are cars and there are Jaguars!

The introduction of the XJ in 1968 ushered in a new era for Jaguar. It was the beginning of a time where all of the cars that rolled out of the Browns Lane factory were based on one platform - all the way from the XJ 2. 8/ 3. 4 to the glamorous XJ-S V12. Once again, Browns Lane was building the best affordable luxury saloon in the world.

It was designed to reinvent the Jaguar brand, moving it forwards significantly. The XJ boasted independent suspension all-round, and an opulent new interior to match its expansive (compared with the Mk2-based cars) exterior dimensions. It lacked a little in rear legroom, but that was fixed with the arrival of the later long-wheelbase body, like this one.

These cars were popular with buyers. It’s easy to see why, as the ride quality and interior comfort are astounding, while roadholding is tenacious.


 A beautiful, factory original Series 2, in the right colour. Smooth as silk to drive, nothing has been left to chance on this beauty.
 Comes with the usual Jaguar high-grade, real leather upholstery, polished walnut facia and door-cappings, deep-pile nylon carpets, and arrangement of controls, are retained, together with knob-controlled front 1/ 4-lights. All these “olde-worlde” fittings contribute to a very special kind of motoring. The thin, slippery-rimmed steering wheel is adjustable for column length and has a half-horn ring, sounding twin horns.
 The performance of this XJ12 Jaguar is quite exceptional. It is this quiet effortless running and the truly impressive pick-up which makes the XJ12 such a fatigue-free car to drive.
 This conservative car maker was often spoken of in the same breath as gentlemen’s clubs and boardrooms and one can get the sense of that when driving this car.
 A very nice and timeless looking example, that maintained well, will give you many years of enjoyment.

The choice of a Jaguar will always be a discreet advertisement for your own lifestyle. The moment you arrive in the XJ12L Series 2 will invest in any occasion with a sense of very personal achievement. If you have curbed your enthusiasm thus far, the XJ12L will surely dispel your inhibitions.


Will be sold WOF’d and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
