Default Recently aquired 1985 V12 VDP

Hi,
New to the forum. I recently aquired this 1985 V12 Jaguar VDP when my Uncle passed in December.
It has 70,000 KM (43,000 Miles), and other then a few things here and there that need fixing., it is good to go! Only on Sundays though to the occasional car show
I look forward to being part of the Forum!

Looking good. I agree about removing the side trim to clean things up.

I'm liking the BBS wheels. Don't think I've seen them on a XJ6/12 before, but they look pretty nice. What size are the rims/tires?

Enjoy!

Eric

Thanks for the nice comments!
The tire sizes are 225/50/16. I have never seen them on a Jaguar either, but I like them as well!
What did the original trim look like?? I agree that at the very least, the trim that is sagging has to be taken off

From the factory Ser IIIs had no side trim at all. It was a common add-on, though, using either aftermarket stuff or Jaguar accessory kits.

Get some Leatherique on those seats. You will be very happy with the results.
