Description

Fixed-head coupé, left-hand drive

This series 1 3.8 liter coupé was sold by Fantasy Junction of Emeryville, California with title stating ‘the 17, 504 mils reflects the actual mileage…”
It should be noted that the car came from Idaho, a state under snow for six months each year, which severely restricts the use of vehicles not specifically designed for such conditions.

The current owner purchased this car at Bonhams auction Paris on February 2013.
Since acquisition the JAGUAR has been driven regularly. The owner has continued to spare no expense in maintaining it there being bills of file from recognized specialist GT LABEL (near Lille) totaling more than 12 000 €.
The current odometer reading is circa 19,431 miles.

Offered with Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate number 47 701, this JAGUAR 3,8l is only for sale due to the owner having committed to the purchase of another significant car.
