With just over 7,600 miles and 1 family ownership from new, this is quite possibly the lowest mileage, lowest ownership example of this marque and model anywhere in the world on the road and as such, a true collector’s car.

The car is a genuine UK supplied matching numbers Daimler 4.2 Auto Vanden Plas spec, as evidenced by the Production Record Trace Certificate (no. 67192) from Jaguar Heritage Trust (included in the documents file).

Stunning in Clarendon Blue (a rare colour option only available for the XJ Series III range in 1983), the car was dry stored since 2011 and given its uniqueness, no expense has been spared in its mechanical and paintwork recommissioning (which totalled more than £8,900) in order to present it, in what can now only be described as concours condition.

The car interior presents almost as new and the beautiful doeskin leather interior and walnut trim is unmarked.

As the top of the range Vanden Plas spec car, it is most comprehensively equipped. This includes electrically adjustable front seats, laminated windscreen, tinted glass, heated rear window, electric window operation with isolation, central locking system, anti-burst catches, fuel filler locks, electrically operated door mirrors, four quartz halogen headlamps, headlamp wash/wipe, front fog lamps, door open warning lamps, comprehensive instrumentation and warning lamp system, courtesy lighting, reading lamps, cigar lighters front and rear, air conditioning, electronic digital tuning stereo cassette, electric aerial, impact absorbing facia, leather bound steering wheel, burr walnut fillets with matchwood inlays, deep pile carpeting and lockable glovebox with vanity mirror.

This car also includes optional extra items for the Daimler 4.2 Auto, which were an electric sunroof, spoked “Kent” alloy wheels (now fully refurbished and with brand new chrome wheel nuts) and fitted with brand new original equipment specification Pirelli P5 Cinturatos 205/70 WR15 tyres. Finally, the car features original luxury deep pile overmats for the front and rear passengers.

The engine has been subject to full re-commissioning check and service, with engine, gearbox and brake fluid all changed and new spark plugs, air and fuel filter fitted.

The 3 speed automatic gearbox changes quickly and smoothly with kick-down engaging as it should. Finally, as can be seen from the photographs, the engine bay has been subject to a thorough detailing.

The car comes with a complete owner’s pack comprising service record, owner’s manual, owner’s maintenance handbook and Clarion model PU-9021A radio cassette receiver owner’s guide. The service record contains 4 stamps:

(i) first service at 690 miles;
(ii) second service at 1778 miles - 30/09/85;
(iii) third service at 4,644 miles - 10/07/90; and
(iv) fourth service at 7,569 - 02/09/2020.

The car was MOT’d after it’s re-commissioning works, which expires on 19/09/2021. In addition, the history file contains past MOTs and assorted invoices, including all invoices from the comprehensive re-commissioning works.

The car comes with two sets of keys (including 2 “chauffeur’s keys), original toolkit and car jack. The chauffeur’s keys allow the doors to be opened, but do not unlock the boot or glovebox.

For collectors or enthusiasts looking for a car in superb condition and with such low mileage and ownership, this car represents a unique opportunity.
