Hello Folks, I’m on a quest to find my late Father’s car. My Father was a Jaguar enthusiast, he owned 3, a J plate series 1 xj 4.2 in dark blue, a brown M reg xj 4.2 which was so unreliable and leaked oil and hydraulic fluid almost from every pore. His final car was a 1977 S reg 4.2 xjc in white with a blue velour interior. He owned it from new until his death in 1979.
For a bit of fun in November I checked the registration number on the mot system and discovered the car still existed. The XJ data site shows the car going through auctions in 2012/13 but since then no sign of it. The DVLA show it as having been exported. I’ve checked with Ireland and they advise it isn’t there so I’m assuming NI perhaps but no confirmation has yet been possible.
If anyone knows of the car, UK reg UYR447S a white XJC with a black vinyl roof I’d love some details.
I’d like to acquire the car in part for sentimental reasons but also for my Mother who is quite elderly and it would bring back some positive memories for her.
Thanks for reading.
