I have known this car from new, and I am the second owner.  Delivered new to Building Contractors Frank Galliers of Shrewsbury, it was one of the very first XJ12 delivered.  

In the favoured Short Wheel Base configuration, it has been cosseted for all of its life.  I have owned it for approximately 6 years and have covered just 3500 miles it is possibly the best un restored original XJ12 in existence.  Cars like this come along very rarely and it is with a heavy heart that I have decided to sell it to its next fortunate custodian.  Regency red with unmarked biscuit trim, it is every bit as good as it looks.

When the XJ6 was launched in 1968 it was a revelation and took luxury saloon travel to a new level.  Outclassing all of its peers in looks, handling and ride as well as value for money, it eclipsed even contemporary  Rolls Royce and Bentley models in its ride and handling.  

The car had always been designed to accept the new Jaguar V12 under development and sure enough in 1972 the XJ12 was announced to a staggered press.  The car was virtually as fast as sports Astons and Ferraris and could claim the title of fastest 4 door saloon at that time.  Still awesomely fast this beautifully cared for 2 owner car is a joy to own , drive and travel in.

The subject of a detailed report in Jaguar World magazine, this car is superb.

How long will it be until this is worth a great deal more money ?  There cannot be many left on the road , and few I suspect if any like this.
