This car was originally Sable. Sometime long before I bought the car it was changed to Signal Red. All of you old Jaguar dogs would recognize that this is a Cinnamon colored interior (slightly darker than Biscuit) and Cinnamon was not an offering combination with Signal Red so that makes this a very unique color combination. Signal Red was originally only available with Black, Buscuit and Dark Blue interior.
This car was repainted, in my opinion, well over 10 years ago. I just recently had the guys at our restoration shop freshen the paint and it looks absolutely great.
This car is a DRIVER. Although it is all correct and original (except for that pesky Red exterior), it really loves to be driven. I own two Jaguars just now BESIDES this one, as personal cars, including a '74 e-Type Roadster and a '75 XJ 12L, the first year for fuel injection on the V-12. Since I have had a hard time getting around to driving all of them, it is time to thin the flock. So, deciding to keep a 4 speed (roadster) and a sedan, this car got elected for sale.
This is a low milage car. Although I do not have proof beyond all reasonable doubt, plenty of indicators, including prior title mileage notations and some service documents that were with the car when I received it indicate that this is indeed the actual and true milage. So, although I won't sign an affidavit, I do believe it to be so without a shread of doubt.
The interior is all original I suspect except for the new headliner that I installed. I recently (within the last 4-500 miles) put five new Dunlops on these wires. The exact tire that the car shipped with is no longer readily available but they were Dunlops and theses are true to the spirit of production but a modern, safer, better gripping driving tire.
The radio probably works but the wires to the speakers are not connected and I have enjoyed driving in the solitude of just the noises that a Jaguar V-12 makes. If it is important to you I'll make sure they are reconnected but personally I'd advise the entertaiment of the sounds of the car.
The a/c works great, although the speed selector switch only knows high. I have NOT had any issues with it staying charged. In fact this is not a Jaguar issue in my experience. There were not a load of options on an e-Type; Automatic transmission, Whitewall "Tyres", Chrome Wirewheels and Air Conditioning pretty much are it; so I guess we could say this car is hard loaded. A period dealer option was a locking gas cap and this car has what I judge to be the original dealer installed locking gas cap.The ignition key is the large rubber head sort, with a separate doorkey.
I do not believe that the car has ever suffered any collision damage. There are no door dings or dents as the car has a very nice straight body that is very consistent with the low miles.
I will aasure you that all cars that are 30+ years old will always require a loving and concerned patron but this car has been an exciting and enjoyable driver.
It is an Automatic transmission. I know, we often refer to automatics in sports car as "a woman's car", no offense intended ladies, but it is a relaxing, easy to drive car. I think folks expect the car to be tight, uncomfortable, and not having enough interior room. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. I am over 6 foot and pushing 220 lbs (ok, ok maybe 240 lbs) and I find the car roomy.
If you have only dreamed of fulfilling your fantasy of owning what is arguably the most beautiful car ever made (ok, I can hear you Series I and II guys from here), then remember that you only live once (ok, some of you will challenge me on this too, I know how you e-bayers are). Buy your dreams and live them! If you are already a Jaguar convert/devotee and you are ready for a striking driver then jump in here.
There are NO dents, waves, chips. This is a solid bodied car. It is a low mileage car. It was a Western car and has been in the Mid-South since I bought it. NEW headliner. Headrest have had happen what occurs to a lot of girls her age.
