Faded Glory #2 – 1973 Jaguar XJ12

November 19, 2013

Thanks to their long production life and timeless design, Jaguar’s XJ series of cars seems to still be rather common. However, among the XJs, it’s not too easy to find an American market car with the early chrome bumpers, tall grill, and other styling features seen on the original version of William Lyons’ classic design. What’s more, the V12 engine was only introduced near the end of Series 1 XJ production, in July 1972, so only about 3200 S1 XJ12s were built. While they were known to have significant cooling problems, they were also said to be the fastest full 4-seater for sale at the time. You can find this Jaguar XJ12 for sale in Pottstown, PA with bidding at $910 and 5 days to go.
