Exterior

Bodywork: Glass:
Paint: Chrome:
Trim:

Remarks

The body work is in generally good condition with no major rust as the floors and sills have been replaced. Evidence of the earlier respray is evident in 2 or 3 small places were there is minor overspray on a rubber trim, or minor running of paint along a seam under the bonnet. There are no dents or scrapes on any body panel. Panel alignment and fit is generally very good. The original black vinyl roof trim is in generally good condition, with no evidence of lifting or bubbling. All body chrome work is present, with minor blemishes to the front and rear bumpers. 

 

Interior

Door-cards: Carpets:
Seating: Headlining:
Dashboard: Boot:

Remarks

The interior of the car looks smart overall. The dashboard veneer was refurbished approx. 7 years ago and has no crazing or splits. All gauges work along with wipers and indicators, although the wiper blades could be replaced. All carpets are new as is the roof lining. The red leather to the front seats is in worn condition, but has no scrapes or tears. The back seats have virtually never been sat in and are in as goodconditon. The headrest foam on the 2 front seats has deteriorated and requires replacement. The windscreen is new and was replaced 12 months ago due to a breakage. Windscreen rubber was also replaced.

Engine

Components: Starting:
Appearance: Running:

Remarks

The engine bay is in used condition with road grime and dust intact. The car was used sparingly in the Norwegian summer so mileage over the past 15 years has been very low.

Transmission

Gears: Drive-shaft:
Clutch:

Remarks

The Borg Warner 3-speed automatic changes quite smoothly.

Running Gear

Axles: Chassis:
Suspension: Bearings:
Brakes: Wheels/Tyres:

Remarks

Chassis is in good condition. Wheels are some years old and probably would be worth replacing. The Kent mag wheels are original and show signs of magnesium leeching which is not unusual. Minor noise from front suspension, possibly bearings and bushes

Electrics

Minor: Major:

Remarks

Radio is non-original and is disconnected. Aerial has also been disconnected. Lights and indicators all operate as they should. Air conditioning functions beautifully and delivers very cold air during summer. Heater and interior ventilation operates on all fan speeds. The small map light globe on the dash requires replacing.

Vehicle History

Remarks

The vehicle was imported to Norway and first registered in 1988. The original owner was working in the UK and bought it home to Norway with him. He had it for 3 years before selling it to the gentleman I purchased the car from. The previous owner to myself kept the vehicle for 23 years. During this time the vehicle was serviced by Jaguar Norway in Oslo *(detailed service history supplied with the car). Upon purchasing the car myself I have continued to use Jaguar in Oslo to service the car. This vehicle is the no. 4 production model of the line from Jaguar for this make and model. The original sales brochure is with the car documentation. The car was registered in the UK originally as 3KMC and was originally purchased by Haven Film Studios UK Ltd. Its a matching numbers car *Heritage Certificate available.
