This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to restore and own a significant car in the history of Jaguar. This is. on the face of it. a 1974 Jaguar XJ12 Coupe finished in Regency Red with Biscuit Hide. but it is actually very special in the following respects.

It is chassis No. 1. i. e. Chassis 2G 1001. the very first V12 Coupe made. but it gets better than that. this car is actually Experimental Car Project ZX36/2 (3. 4 Engine). which means that it was taken from the V12 production line and fitted with the 3. 4 saloon engine and manual gearbox. so see if this work be a workable combination. As it turned out. Jaguar decided upon the 4. 2 and V12 engines as the only options. which means this is the only Jaguar Coupe to be made with the 3. 4 engine and manual gearbox.

All of this information is outlined on the Heritage Certificate and older correspondence with Jaguar over the years. Dont forget. this car was produced in January 1974. a full year before any customers received their cars.

As you can see from the photos. the car needs restoring but over £20k has already been invested in the project and a huge amount of bodywork. welding has taken place and would not need to be repeated. It is actually quite advanced but obviously. a huge amount of work remains. We belive the car to be complete but cannot guarantee every nut and bolt is there.

All in all. this is a very rare opportunity. unique in many respects. to buy a Jaguar Experimental car. the story of which still remains to be told!
