In late 1979, the Jaguar XJ range was facelifted, and re-named as the XJ Series III. Using the long-wheelbase version of the car, the XJ incorporated a subtle redesign by Pininfarina. Externally, the most obvious changes over the SII were the thicker and more incorporated rubber bumpers with decorative chrome only on the top edge, flush door handles for increased safety, a one-piece front door glass without a separate 1/4 light, a grille with only vertical vanes, reverse lights moved from the boot plinth to the larger rear light clusters and a revised roofline with narrower door frames and increased glass area. There were three engine variants, including the 5.3 lt V12, the 4.2 lt straight-six and 3.4 L straight-six. The larger six-cylinder, and V12 models incorporated Bosch fuel injection which was made under licence by Lucas. 132,952 Series III cars were built, 10,500 with the V12 engine.
This 1983 Jaguar Series 3 V12 is described by the vendor to be in good condition all round. The car is presented in Gold with Tan Leather and comes with all the usual extras for this model. The car has been privately owned and entered, and is a two owner car as it was bought from the original lady owner in January 2012. The car has the logbook and MOT, but the paperwork is misplaced or lost and will be forwarded on, if found.
This Jaguar has done a genuine 35,000 miles from new and has been serviced while in the current owners possession at his own workshop. This Jaguar drives well and has MOT until 30th July 2019.
