Vehicle History


The car will be MoT'd and freshly serviced prior to the sale. Selected for JEC Royal Windsor parade May 2017. JDC Concours d'Elegance, East Anglia Jaguar Day 2009 Ist Place as Best Road Going Jaguar. I am not aware of any modifications or repairs to the car and as far as I know, it is in original condition. Covered 5,000 miles in the last 6 years. The car has almost a full service history and I have an extensive document file with invoices back to 1993 when it was serviced by Eaton Square Garage Ltd in Belgravia. The car was supplied by Henleys in Mayfair. In my ownership (11 years) the car has seen dry use only and always garaged.
