This XJ-SC was despatched new to Hatfields of Sheffield in 1985. The identity of the first owner is uncertain, but could apparently have been a senior director of Raleigh Cycles of Nottingham. Whatever, the Jaguar was eventually acquired by a Leicestershire gentlemen who used it sparingly until his death. It then passed to his niece, from whom it was purchased by the vendor. Historical paperwork suggests the indicated mileage of just 14,200 could be correct. Certainly the XJ-SC appears to have led a very cosseted life, and the Cobalt Blue paintwork is original apart from a small level of remedial work around the arches to repair stone chipping. The 'Starfish' alloys have been refurbished to factory specification, the bumpers have been rechromed and a stainless steel exhaust system fitted. The vendor currently grades the bodywork and paintwork as 'excellent' and the V12 engine, automatic transmission and Doeskin leather interior trim as 'very good'.
