1978 JAGUAR XJC 5. 3 LITRE V-12 PILLARLESS COUPE.  

OHC ALL-ALLOY MOTOR. GM-400 AUTO BOX.

This is the very rare. sought after & valuable 2-door V-12 coupe version of the Series 2 XJ sedan.


1 of only 1855 produced & only 603 in RHD. with only 97 being sold in Australia. This car was sold in the UK in the last year they were offered. When restored these cars are now fetching $65k + and are the most valuable of the XJ Series 1- 3 range. There is one for sale in the UK. also needing restoration. for 4 x times my opening price.


UNUSED FOR 24 YEARS. FULL RESTORATION REQUIRED.


ONLY 50. 51 MILES FROM NEW (80K KLMS). Mine for 15 years & previous lady owner for another 15 years.


I purchased this car in the UK many years ago & had intended to restore it. but it is now being sold as part of a downsizing.  It needs to be saved & the attractive styling is commented on by everybody who sees it.

 

BODYWORK: Rusty floors (replacement panels are produced). Rusty doors (I have spare doors available at extra cost). Rust around petrol filler panels (one replacement panel is included). Rust in sills. Rust in A & B pillars. Assume rust EVERYWHERE.

Requires a respray. Vinyl roof has perished (these days people think they look better without one). Right fuel tank has been removed & is in the boot. Most parts are interchangeable with sedans. which are plentiful & are obvious donors except for the unique doors.


MECHANICAL: Was a running driving car when purchased 15 years ago but it has not been started since so mechanicals are now unknown.


INTERIOR: Leather seats are in good condition as they have been stored out of the car for the last 15 years. Only some of the stitching has come undone. Front carpets have perished. rear carpets are fine. Headlining sagged & was removed.

FORS Import Permit & UK Registration papers are present.


SUMMARY: This restoration is not for the faint-hearted but the cars are the most valuable of the XJ range. production volume was low & many have been scrapped due to rust. The result is that few cars are left & even fewer are in good condition. To restore this car would therefore be a rewarding proposition but is a big project. The car is unique & eye-catching. how often can you find an exotic like this for less than the cost of importation?


Please note where it is – Crookwell NSW which is 45 klms west of Goulburn. which in turn is 2 ½ hours south of Sydney. Obviously it will have to be collected by truck or trailer with a winch as it will be tough to move since 2 of the tyres don't hold air.
