Registered 19th November 1991
New MOT 31.01.18 no advisories.
Purchased in 2004. Standard limousine being one of the very last made in Nov 1991. Full main dealer service history through to Oct 2003 at 100,654 miles then our servicing by local Fairfax motors or classic Jaguar specialist GreenCats. Finished in ebony over ivory with fawn cloth interior, twin air con and recent new fawn carpets. For sale due to retirement of the 35 year old wedding hire business. Originally supplied to the Mayor of Bedworth and Nuneaton, then passed through limousine dealers from whom we purchased the vehicle, so two owners from new. Has the roof mounted light and base for shield. Well maintained including rear brake callipers overhauled with new repair kits, new pads inc handbrake, anti-rattle and springs, all Jag at 115,626.
SU carbs overhauled, new needles, distributer, all Jag at 111,600.
The ivory respray on purchase proved to be of the cheap sales cover up variety, which we rather expected, and the usual rust soon broke through. In 2008 we had most of the interior removed and to the left side door trim cards, fuel tank, pumps, door locks and mirrors, all bumpers, grill and chrome work, moulding strips. Extensive re-metalling took place to this left hand side with complete lower half respray. The right side was basically sound and only minor repair was required. All waxoiled. Total cost over £6000. This comprehensive repair has shown that quality lasts. The right side again needed minor repair in 2013 and this was attended to for £1600.
