Jaguar's XJ Saloon was introduced in 1968 and was the last model to have the personal input of Sir William Lyons. The striking Pillarless Coupe was first shown five years later, though production didn't commence until 1975. There were two engine options - a 4.2-litre DOHC XK unit and the silky 5.3-litre V12.
This attractive V12 Coupe is finished in dark blue with black vinyl roof and dark blue interior and displays c.54,800 miles on its odometer. Originally supplied to Racal Group Services Ltd of Bracknell, Berkshire, the V5 registration document records just three previous keepers. The car is accompanied by an extensive history file containing the original purchase invoice, owner's handbook, lubrication chart, Passport to Service book stamped up to 48,000 miles in 2000, detailed notes of works carried out since 2000 and numerous assorted MoTs dating back to 1978. Following a period of storage we are advised the car has been treated to some £4,000 of expenditure including attention to the braking system and also benefits from a recent gearbox refurbishment by XJ Restorations. The current MoT expires in February 2017.
