5.3L V12, 3-SPEED AUTO, FULLY LOADED W/ LONGER WHEELBASE, RECENT MAINT W/ RCPTS!

A classic Jaguar sedan is an everlasting symbol of affluence and distinction, so we promise to keep this economy price a secret. But this 1978 Jaguar XJ12 L's appeal is more than just its affordability. Sleek style on the outside, true luxury on the inside, and a solid investment in the powerful V12 make for an all-around attractive classic.

Jaguar really understood beautiful design lines with the early XJs. This has the unmistakable European style with the front sheet metal that contours to the quad headlight design, the sleek cat-like profile, and smooth rear end that tapers inward to give this sedan a final sporty touch. And the low-slung style mixed with tasteful chrome accenting is the ideal mix of sporty and sophisticated. The same goes for the paint. The Regency Red has the vibrant look you want in red but with some deeper tones of refinement. Not only is this the factory-correct color, but it's also believed to be the original application. And the way it still gives a nice shine today is a reminder of quality care that goes into the right premium cars.

The interior has the same look of a respected classic. The tan leather makes for a tasteful color combo against the deep ... Please ask for the full description.

Description

5.3L V12, 3-SPEED AUTO, FULLY LOADED W/ LONGER WHEELBASE, RECENT MAINT W/ RCPTS!

A classic Jaguar sedan is an everlasting symbol of affluence and distinction, so we promise to keep this economy price a secret. But this 1978 Jaguar XJ12 L's appeal is more than just its affordability. Sleek style on the outside, true luxury on the inside, and a solid investment in the powerful V12 make for an all-around attractive classic.

Jaguar really understood beautiful design lines with the early XJs. This has the unmistakable European style with the front sheet metal that contours to the quad headlight design, the sleek cat-like profile, and smooth rear end that tapers inward to give this sedan a final sporty touch. And the low-slung style mixed with tasteful chrome accenting is the ideal mix of sporty and sophisticated. The same goes for the paint. The Regency Red has the vibrant look you want in red but with some deeper tones of refinement. Not only is this the factory-correct color, but it's also believed to be the original application. And the way it still gives a nice shine today is a reminder of quality care that goes into the right premium cars.

The interior has the same look of a respected classic. The tan leather makes for a tasteful color combo against the deep red exterior. When you use quality materials, even high traffic areas like the driver's seat just seem to wear into attraction. Also, the back seat looks particularly nice. That's even more impressive because a longer wheelbase "L" edition makes this a great car to share with family and friends (you'll even note the shoulder belts back there.) Real wood trim and plush carpeting are part of this upper-class presentation. You also have great factory features like power windows, an AM/FM, and provisions for air conditioning (it needs servicing to blow ideally cold again.) In fact, the only upgrade you may even notice in this loaded and classic sedan is the deep tint on the windows.

When you want a true flagship classic, it's hard to be a V12 under the hood. This 5.3-liter fuel-injected powerhouse is believed to be original to the car, and it has been given all the right recent investments. It starts with new fuel injectors and a fuel pressure regulator. There are also the right supporting services, like new seals, a new fuel pump, and a new switchover valve for the dual fuel tanks. The advantage of a V12 means you have a smooth and torque-filled feeling that makes it effortlessly luxurious around town or stretching its legs on the highway. The automatic transmission is the familiar TH400 sourced from GM, so you know it has the robustness to handle the V12's power with ease. But this is more than just a good powertrain. The XJ runs on a fully independent suspension that includes some new front-end bushings and front shock tower bushings. This confident driving feeling is reinforced by power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and a long maintenance file. This XJ12 is waiting for the right person to continue its preserved heritage. Call today!!!
