Ebay item 8/12/22
www.ebay.com/itm/314105558953
Car has a buy it now price of $15,000 for 29 days, seller leogr-9409, 55k miles.

Seller's description:
1973 Jaguar XJ12 Short Wheelbase Left Hand Drive. We have owned this car for 42 years having bought the car May 5, 1980.

Jaguar first introduced the v12 engine in the final year of production of the Series 1, four door Sedan, only produced 1,761 SWB, LHD. XJ12 and sold 926 Series 1 cars in the United States in 1973, making it a very rear collector car. This put the 1973 XJ12 Series 1 in the unique position of being both the first of its kind and the last. Jaguar started production of XJ 12 Series 1 in July 1972 for Model year 1973 and ended production in August 1973 so they could start producing the XJ 6 and XJ12 Series 2.

According to JAGUAR - DAIMLER Trust, this car was built on 17 October 1972 and was dispatched on February 23,1973 to British Leyland Mtrs., Inc., New York, USA., It was 161st car of this model off the Assembly Line.

We have the Production Record Trace Certificate No. 1831, which lays out the information regarding this particular vehicle and indicating that it has matching numbers.
This is a California car, and the body is sound straight and has only two places where there is slight rust as indicated in the photos.

I had the car re-painted approximately ten years
ago and had the bumpers re-chromed at that time. The car for many years has been a third car with very little use. After re-installing the newly chromed bumpers and while parked on the street both bumpers were damaged within two weeks of being re-installed.

Several years ago, when using the car, while my minivan was being repaired the jack-shaft that drives the distributor broke and the car was placed in storage.

The car now besides needing the jack-shaft replaced it has a sticking valve when I hand turned the engine the other day, when checking to see the overall condition of the car to be put up for sale. The engine rotates 360 degrees, but is stiff

A BUYER WOULD HAVE TO CONSIDER GOING THROUGH THE ENGINE (a complete rebuild). The Transmission was replaced after we received the Certificate of matching numbers, so the replacement transmission would have to be removed and disassembled to be re-assembled, using the original gear box Case, with the Matching number, that I kept

The car will need all new tires.
There is a small pocket of rust in forward corner on left side of well for spare tire.
The rear passenger side door panel has come loose at the top of the panel and the wood trim has come off since the photo showing the area of door.
The fuel pumps will have to be gone through or replaced.
The fuel tanks would need to be cleaned out== BUT, it would be much more financially efficient to install new fuel tanks.
The vent system that runs under the head liner would need replacing as well as other hoses, throughout the car at 59 years old.
The A/C pump will need overhauling or replacing, and the system gone through.
The power steering ram has been replaced and overhauled, ==But will need to be done again by now.
The Upholstery will have to be replaced.
The wood instrument clusters will have to be carefully taken down to the wood and re-varnished.
The bumpers were re-chromed several years ago but now would have to have small dents repaired and re-chromed. Be sure to have them chrome both exterior and the interior of the bumpers.

I was in the process of beginning to restore the car while still having it as a back-up car, but the jackshaft snaped.

This car is in very good condition to be considered for restoration, BUT IS BEING SOLD AS IS.
I RECOMEND, using a Pre-Purchasing Inspection Service, (PPI).

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
