The restoration was done at 92500 miles, the odometer currently reads 7228. It has been driven just over 14700 miles since this work was done. The car has been driven lightly averaging about 1500 miles a year since the work was done and always garaged. The car is very tight, starts, drives, and runs very very well.The car has been shown and won several trophy's/awards over the years, they will be included with the sale along with several Jaguar books,Jaguar manual and parts book.
