Dating from June 1976, this coupe was one of 1,746 built that year and is powered by the proven 4.2-litre straight-six with automatic ‘box.
It has recently been treated to a repaint from its original and perhaps somewhat dated Old English White to silver. It has a new black vinyl roof and sits nicely on its pressed and polished steel wheels.
The leather interior is finished in a harmonious tone of blue with matching blue carpets and the usual walnut trim. The common Jaguar issue of a saggy headlining has recently been rectified, a new one having been carefully installed which looks lovely.
The car has also benefitted from some work to the cylinder head which is detailed on file, which includes the V5C and current MOT running until November 2020 with no advisories.
The car is reluctantly being offered for sale to fund the ongoing restoration of another XJC. Their loss could be your gain, as the car looks a treat thanks to its recent restorative works and presents itself as a fine example of a 70’s super-coupe.
PS: This car has been converted from carbs to fuel injection and had a new timing chain in July 2019.
