Seller description

1980 Jaguar XJS v12

This XJS was bought to be fully restored and given as a gift
to an old family friend.

It took time, as they all do, and then the old friend
retired and moved to another country.

That was 5 years back and as I had no time for it, that’s
the last time I worked on it.

Everything I could see that needed replacing has been.

New fuel filter and all fuel hoses including at injectors.

Injectors cleaned

New performance ignition leads and distributor cap and

Engine starts and runs fine. Temp seems good, new radiator

Automatic fluid changed and works well.

Koni adjustable shocks all round.

Front end steering mounts and Ball joints/Tie rods,

Rack worked on and alignment done.  New Swaybar mounts

New drilled and slotted front rotors and performance pads to
go on.

All brake hoses (front and rear) changed to Stainless flex
lines DOT approved.

Master cylinder rebuilt.

Rear diff carrier removed cleaned and painted,

 trailing arms bushes
replaced, brake calipers rebuilt new SS pistons,

new handbrake pads (actually work),

new drilled and slotted rotors and performance pads.

 Bearings checked,
regreased, diff oil changed.

Limited slip diff is good.

New mufflers

Simmons wire wheels and new tyres.

New carpets

New hood lining

New sunroof assembly and motor. New 750cca Spiral wound AGM

Trims, mirrors, headlights and other parts taken off to
paint are in boxes

Paint… the gentleman wanted a very dark black to green colour,
black but hints of a dark British racing green. So it was painted in Jet Black
with Emerald Green Pearl.

For 3 years the paint was mirror perfect and each Christmas
the gentleman came down and looked at her. But the next year we removed the
covers for him to see her, she had many bubbles/blisters under the paint. Best
guess is humidity bubble in the primer (we did not get flooded here but it was
a bad time around then). Beautiful colour and a shame it’s no longer perfect.

The hood and fuel lid are yet to be painted

She is an extremely good head start for someone, most of it
is done.

I don’t have time or space for her any longer and the
gentleman does not intend to come back to Australia.

So she needs a new home. Not asking anywhere near what it owes, but i want to see it go to a good home.
