Ebay item 2/7/16
Current bid US $15,100 reserve not met 17 bids 6 days left in auction. Seller distr777, 48k miles.
This is an original matching number. Never an accident & no holes in floors. 48,000 original miles. Jaguar A/C & wire wheels. Excellent glass (door glass & roll up mechanisms work fluently as well as pop-out back vent windows), no crack dash, headliner, & not bad original interior. Hood, doors, & rear hatch door close/fit as new. Always garaged & no "odors". Receipts from new & the present owners files.
V12; 4 SPEED!
Needs: Complete motor refresh/tune/probably carbs rebuilt. Starts easy but does have what I think is a spark plug causing a misfire pop. Or, could be carb synchronize, vacuum leak issue (one of the carbs seem not working). I can eventually get to tune up & trouble shooting as a favor to the seller, but I am busy so it won't be during this listing. Your CHANCE to get it much less before the small issue is diagnosed & done. It does not overheat or smoke as in oil burn.
The paint is original with 43 years "patina". No bubbles or shredding of concern, but if you are a perfectionist where everything has to be NEW, move on.
BIG NOTE: Not sure how rare V12 accompanied by a 4 speed manual is, but I would guess minimal. It does have a fifth spoke spare rim in spare well (no rust there either). I am listing this for the owner. It has a CLEAR Florida title.

It has a black leather interior and sits on chrome wire wheels. There are some lovely original features with the car including the radio and seat belts front and rear. A well presented example which formed part of a small collection. It is offered with a history file containing a list of annual mileage from 1974, and a Jaguar Heritage certificate confirming matching numbers.
