IN WELL ABOVE AVERAGE CONDITION THIS AMAZING JAGUAR IS A GREAT INVESTMENT. Clean series 1 Jaguar, 1971 restored a few years ago, the paint presents very well, but has some tiny imperfections, but no rust, be hard to find better, and it drives amazing, sounds even better. The interior has also been partly restored, with the only slight wear to seats, no rips or tears, no fade, new door trims, good carpets, one small crack to dash pad, good timber and everything works as it should. The V8 conversion was done decades ago, the motor still purrs, sounds amazing, runs great, drives excellent and sits nicely, however I have had new front springs made to lower it around 45mm, yet to be fitted. The car has had air conditioning and retains the piping, just no compressor fitted, so easy to sort if you feel the need, I have the original steering wheel, and they gauges are original, I have fitted a small perspex cover over speedo with larger writing for my wife to ee the correct speed easily at night, easy to remove. It has a sound system, but pretty old school, but works well. Tyres are good, its registered with the current motor, trans shifts well, really not much to do, other than minor paint if you wish to show the car. Series 1's are now hard to find, so are early XJ's with V8's in them, the car runs cool, looks cool, drives amazing and turns heads, priced to sell easily, and I can deliver to a transport depot for interstate buyers, can chat honestly on the phone and do face time walk around if that helps. Mark Aldridge 040 Thirty Three, 79 Five hundred is contact, low reserve set to get quick sale. The only non perfect parts are slight clear coat peel to two sections you will hardly notice, one pin dent, the single crack to dash ( I can include a dash matt ) and two of the usual small cracks on the upper pillar all XJ6 models get, the rear of the exhaust has tiny pin holes starting, after the diff, they do not affect note or make noise yet, it will pass a road worthy anywhere, subject to discretion as usual. SA buyers will also need a roadworthy inspection, a weird issue I would rather chat about as we have had it registered as it sits and it has been in SA registered V8 for well over a decade, bt since this add went up, someone enquired with motor reg, and they do not have an exemption on file, because they do not need one, it came in to SA legally registered and passed. Its easy to get it sorted, but the VIS is in error, and for those that know me, I will sort it by way of legal challenge, as I ought not have to pay for the inspection, an issue being debated now. Once I have that sorted, I can register for new buyer with SA rego, until then if you currently bid, in SA you will need a roady, and I suspect if you are interstate you will as well, but it is a sound great driving car, built to an excellent standard, so just a good going over and detail underneath and it will be easy to register in any state.
