JAGUAR XJS 1977 5.3 V12 Coupe 
- Vehicle is in excellent condition inside & out

***GREAT CLUB VEHICLE***
- it is currently on Club registration which is only approx $50.00 per year 
( Not transferable  & cost depends on which State you live in)

Up for sale is my personal JAGUAR XJS 1977 5.3 V12 Coupe named "Sylvester" which has been a pleasure to drive & own. It is a very original rare pre HE (pre-1981) which are very hard to find these days because so many were either rusted out or were fitted with Chevy V8s. It is showing 70993 kms which could be original by the overall standard & presentation of the vehicle, but could be 170993 or 270993 as the speedos were only a five-digit odometer in those days making it hard to know exactly.

This is a survivor car that has looks like it has never been restored & has been lovingly maintained all its life.

The car has spent all its life in Australia, having been Australian delivered & Complianced  - and - in the words of my JAGUAR specialist "has clearly benefitted from the Australian climate".

There is no rust and the car has never been involved in an accident or had rust repairs. It still has its original lightweight Kent alloy wheels with the Growler caps. Likewise, the interior is also very original and in excellent condition. Mechanically, like the interior and bodywork, the car is original and retains its factory-fitted matching number engine which is in excellent condition. The engine has healthy oil pressure and is responsive as an XJS V12 should be. The transmission shifts smoothly with no undue noise.

He steers stops and drives as one would expect of an XJS V12.

Sensible mechanical and aesthetic upgrades have been undertaken to improve the appeal and/or reliability of the car, including:

⦁ Radiator twin electric fans

⦁ Crane electronic ignition
 
  • Twin LED headlights ​(fantastic night lights)

All modifications are easily reversed to factory original form.

The car is reliable having been used regularly - many of the wear and tear items have already been replaced 
– including NEW brake pads front &rear
⦁ NEW 12 volt battery
⦁ NEW tyres all round
front suspension bushes & ball joints.
The result is a car requiring little attention aside from routine servicing!


In summary I would describe the car as is in very good condition & the photos speak for themselves.
All the usual Jaguar features that you would expect such as
 
  •  Power steering & Climate control Air Conditioning (Just been serviced & re-gased).
  • 5.3-litre Fuel injected V12 engine
  • 3-speed Automatic gearbox.
 
The body is in excellent condition as can be seen by the photos & underneath is one of the cleanest that I have seen.
 
We have had our Independent Jaguar specialist mechanic check the vehicle & has given it a clean bill of health. 
 
The vehicle is being sold as-is UNREGISTERED (Club plates are NOT transferable)
