This car has gone through a complete restoration and is presented in excellent condition. No expense has been spared to maintain the wonderful condition of this beast.
The car was in storage between 1988 and 2004, in this time, it went through a slow, thorough restoration by it's mechanic owner who has brought the car back to it's former glory. I have bills for lots of the work that was carried out.
The engine is the 5.3 V12, it sounds absolutely brutal! It has been overhauled and has recently been serviced (6 months ago) The gearbox was totally reconditioned in 2004 at a cost of £700 The carbs were fully reconditioned in 2004.
The bodywork is solid and clean, the car was totally stripped and went through a bare metal respray in 2000 and is still rust free and gorgeous! The chromework was restored and is still gleaming apart from a very small flake on the back bumper which I thought I'd mention. In 2004, the owner completely replaced the body rubbers at a cost of £260
The interior: The current owner completely replaced the carpets with brand new original jaguar carpets at a cost of £300, the seats were removed and sent off to a restoration specialist who totally re-cushioned the padding inside the seat and totally restored the original leather, this cost around £350
The MOT has expired, the owner is offering a full 1 year MOT to the winning bidder, he will pay for any work that would need to be done to pass.
