Jaguar XJC

Year: 1997

Mileage: 51500

Price: Auction

This rare and stunning Jaguar XJ coupe was first registered in November 1977 and has had only seven former keepers in its 46 year history. The car has a recorded 51500 miles, and whilst this can not be warranted, there is no reason to believe it is not accurate. Included in the paperwork are old MOT certificates from 1981 to 1995 that support the mileage and the previous owner purchased the car in 1993 shortly before becoming ill and passing away. The car was then stored by his son for over 20 years before finally coming out to be restored and refurbished in 2019. Finished in pure black with black leather this example has had considerable money and time spent on it over the last four years making it a very solid and useable classic. The car is physically in excellent condition all round with no signs of any corrosion in either the main bodywork or underneath. This is partly due to a significant spend in 2020 of over 100 hours by BRC restorations in Canterbury that included
amongst other work new floorpans and outer sills. This is supported by a photographic folder of the work being completed that is included with the paperwork. This example also features its original vinyl roof, which too is in very good condition and recently re-chromed front and rear bumpers.
Mechanically the XJC drives very well and has completed around 500 trouble free miles this year.
Electronic ignition has been fitted to improve timing reliability and a full refurbishment service has recently taken place including all fluids and filters and new fuel pumps being fitted. The brakes are excellent and the car rides and handles well with no bumps or creaks. Inside all the fixtures and fittings are present and correct. The seats have been recently professionally fully retrimmed in the finest leather and a new stunning burr walnut fascia has been fitted to the dashboard. The car features a period Bluetooth DAB radio. In the boot you will find the original Jaguar tool kit and jack package and there is even the original Jaguar owners audio cassette still present.
The provenance is supported further with the original service book and handbook all enclosed in the Leyland Portfoio. The service book itself features ten dealer stamps upto 1991.
In conclusion, this is a fantastic opportunity to buy a rare and appreciating Jaguar XJC that not just looks stunning but is also ready for reliable use as a classic vehicle.
