Classic Car Auctions says:

Well known 'Cover Girl' coupé in need of restoration...


  • A rare, 5.3-litre, V12-engined example of Jaguar's elegant mid-seventies coupé
  • Remaining in its original Regency Red over Cinnamon leather and now ready for restoration
  • Currently not running but sound and obviously been well cared for over its lifetime
  • According to the Heritage Certificate this is a matching-numbers, 1976, V12 XJ-C
  • Purchased by Peter Curtis in 1979 and sold to Gary Davis from Panorama Bay Classics in 1994
  • Featured on the cover of Paul Skilleter's "The XJ Series Jaguars" when the car was at its best
  • These are rare and desirable cars and now sufficiently valuable to justify a decent restoration
