1979 Jaguar XJ12

Short Story,Pictures do not show how nice this car is. This XJ12L has a flawless body, like new interior, excellent paint, a 350 Chevy drivetrain with low miles, only 52338 total miles, runs and drives great.HISTORYThis car spent most of its life in Texas.In the mid 80's the V12 developed some issues, the Texas owner then elected to rebuild the V12 and disassembeled the engine, before he was able to completre his task, he died, leaving his widow with a very nice Jag with no engine. The car was sold to the gentleman from whom I purchased the car. He was not only familiar with Jags, he was an aircraft mechanic. He found a low miles wrecked Chevy PU,pulled the engine and trans and did the conversion, around that time he also painted the car. The paint was quality base/ clear coat system. In the 90's he and the Jag were transferred to Nashville, Tn. In 2015 his wife got a new Cadillac. She laid claim to the garage space where the Jag was living. Not wanting to leave the Jag outside it was offered for sale.I bought the car in July 2015.Hving been in the Antique and classic car business for over 40 years I know cars. The only areas in which I saw room for improvement was the paint, it looked like it had never been ultrafine sanded and buffed, I've done the boot (decki lid) rear quarters and roof, they look fabulous, will I have th rest done by the time you come to get the car?? MaybeGENERAL COMMENTSWith both the engine swap and paint, being 25-30 years old and having withstood the test of time, there will be no surprises from this car. Even the Lucas power windows operated smoothly and quickly. Look at the dash photo, at idle the engine is holding 60PSI.A conversion from V12 to Chevy would cost $8,000-$10,000, I;m offering you this car for less.Why qm I selling??, I am Buick lover. drive a Riviera and have just found a low mileage silver Arrow that is repalcing the Jag as my back up vehicle.E mail me questions or send your number nd I'll cll you with real answers,The car is inside and I can provide inside storage or 30 dys. THANKS BILLFor you non Jag folks, XJ12L is a longer Jag with more rear set room and larger rear doorsthen an XJ6r
