This is a truly unique opportunity to purchase a magnificent original, low mileage Jaguar MKIX. This is without doubt one of the lowest mileage examples in existence having only covered 29000 miles from new. The car was ordered new in special order colour Cotswold Blue with Grey leather upholstery and left the factory with automatic transmission and power steering. The Jaguar was first registered on the 20th October 1960 and has had very few owners from new.
1670 JW had covered just 22712 miles from 1960 to 1986 and since then has covered less than 7000 miles in 30 years. Tax discs and MOT certificates show very low usage during the 1990's and in 1996 at 26000 miles the Jaguar was taken over to the Netherlands. The Jaguar returned to the UK in 2014 having covered almost 3000 miles on the Continent over 18 years.
1670 JW is exactly how a low mileage, original car should be. The leather seats have beautifuly aged, they are nicely creased, retain a lovely patina and have no tears or damage. The original headlining is excellent, the woodwork is superb, the door cards and carpets present well and the car is a true time warp. The car has never in its life been dismantled, the bodywork is outstanding, panel gaps stunning, panels perfectly straight, original and not repaired. The bodyshell is original and outstanding, the Cotswold Blue paintwork has a strong, deep shine and the chrome work is all original and still bright after so many years. The engine bay is clean with smart original paint, the boot retains original mat and spare wheel cover and jack, door pockets still retain the original tool kits, the car is just wonderful in every respect. Driving the car does not disapoint either; the 3781cc is in superb order holding excellent oil pressure and performing correctly with impressive power and acceleration. The automatic gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the power steering is in excellent order and the MKIX' disc brakes stop the car efficiently. Do not confuse 1670 JW with an original car that has stood for many years and is tired and needing work, this is an original car that has been kept in excellent order and is a perfectly usable, beautifully presented example that can be enjoyed and used for reliable touring immediatley. This is a true time warp and is quite possibly unrepeatable.
