It's back!!  I thought it was sold but the buyer evaporated into thin air.   So. up for auction again is my 1974 Jaguar XJ12L that I have owned for about 25 years.   It was a Florida car.   It has the V12 with 4 carburetors.   The car has been repainted in the original sable brown and has a newer biscuit interior with cinnamon original type wool carpet.   The bumpers have been replaced with NOS ones.   It has the very rare right side door mirror.   The dash has been replaced with a dark burled wood and is in perfect condition.   All gauges and switches work.   The radio in the pictures has been replaced with a CD player.   I had not driven the car in several years. so last year I replaced all of the calipers. pads. rotors. and emergency brake cable.   A new exhaust was installed at that time.   It was then that I noticed a slight. intermittent ticking sound coming from under the car.   The noise would come and go and went away completely when warmed up.   Since then. and after much searching. I finally found the cause; the flex plate (flywheel) has two small cracks in it.   This. of course has caused me to re-evaluate my reserve price. since repairs will be needed.   The engine runs beautifully. and the car drives very well. with no side effects from the flex plate problem.   I have no idea of how long it has been like this. but I don't remember the ticking being there when the car was stored.

As you can see from the pictures. everything else is in great condition.   It's not a 100 pt show car. but extremely presentable in its present state.   These are getting quite rare in their original state; many gave up their engines for XKE replacements and many became V8 conversions because the drivers didn't realize that it takes a little time to warm up 12 quarts of oil before punching the engine hard.   I'm selling to fund other restoration projects.   Please feel free to ask any questions. I will do my best to give you an honest answer.   No warranty. buyer must deposit $500 within 48 hours of auction close.   Pick up only near Fond du Lac. WI.   I can help with loading.   Thanks for looking.   God bless.
