1979 Jaguar XJ12L

Pedigree Motorcars is proud to offer this absolutely magnificent 1979 Jaguar XJ12L. For details contact Ken Baker at 561-866-1601.

At Pedigree we are always searching for the finest examples of affordable collector cars. When we first heard of this beautiful Jaguar, we thought it could never be as good as its described. Fortunately, we were wrong. This Jaguar is without question, the finest of its kind. It is one of the last series 2 XJs produced and it is one of the rarest. This long wheelbase 12 cylinder model is the first we have ever seen of this generation and of this level of quality.

This is a two owner example that was sold to it second owner when it was only two years old with 3700 miles on it. It has lovingly been cared for by that same owner until recently.

Records indicate that the second owner drove the car sparingly but maintained it well. This is a highly original example that is show quality. It has been shown and scored 99 out of 100 points at a Jaguar club event. The score sheet is included.

Everything about this Jaguar is impressive. There is no rust on it whatsoever. The brown paint gleams and is free of any noticeable flaws. All of the chrome and bright work have a perfect finish and are free of any pitting or imperfections. The original wheels on the car are in magnificent condition as are the wheel centers and really complement the lines of this long wheelbase XJ12.

Inside, the leather has no dye on it and is just magnificent. It is still soft and supple. There are no flaws or cracks on the dashboard or the tops of any of the doors. The wood on the dash is beautiful and is original and shows almost know wear. The carpet and headliner are in the same condition and in sitting in this car, you feel like you were back in 1979. The boot is equally as impressive and has a full size spare tire on the original Jaguar wheel.

Upon opening the bonnet, the large, impressive, V 12 is sparklingly clean. It fires up immediately with a twist of the key and has an ultra smooth idol. Driving this Jaguar is as impressive as it looks. The transmission shifts with smoothly, and the V 12 engine makes seemingly endless power and torque. Everything works as it should, just as you would expect from a car of this level of magnificence.

As with all of our Jaguars, the Jaguar Doctor of Boca Raton, Florida, has thoroughly inspected and serviced this car. In getting the car ready for sale we had performed:

Oil and filter change
Replace both horns
Replace rear window seal
Replace air conditioning compressor and dryer
Replace throttle bushings
Replace fuel valve
Repair air pump

Because this car had been so well-maintained, only a limited amount of work was needed and preparing this car for sale.

Accompanying this Jaguar will be:

Original owners manual
Service books from when the car was purchased
Two master keys
All service documentation that we received
Tool roll
Odometer statement from when the second owner purchased the car

This is one of the finest series 2 XJ12s we have ever seen. The new owner of this motorcar can show it with pride and drive it with a feeling of confidence. We have well in excess of 100 photos that are available upon request. All of the service documents are also available upon request.

At Pedigree Motorcars we show cars by appointment only. Contact Ken Baker at 561-866-16012 arrange your private showing.
