I have owned this car for the last 36 years. It has very low miles, 6,176. It was driven regularly for the first ten years and then retired to a show car status, hich means it was only driven for parades and jaguar club events. It runs great, ooks great!

The series 1 , +2 Coupe, enefits from improved looks, etter handling, ore leg room and a sliding rear seat which converts the car to a 2 seater with extra luggage space. More leg room provides comfortable seating for the taller person.

The 2+2 coupe features air conditioning with an automatic transmission. The air conditioning gives a cooler ride for a hot cat. The automatic transmission provides one great amenity for driving ease
