Yes, the rare coupe, only 9,145 made in all variants including the Daimlers.

Here's a 76 that looks superb, assuming one likes the colour which I think I do.
And very cheap at $12,990, at least by UK standards although it is modded of course and over here Jag owners are sniffy about modified cars. The 'wrong' sort of mods that is.

Said to be a period Interjag conversion, so not a back-yard job. Shame that the engine pics are so poor. I asked the seller which auto box it has and the engine capacity, but they can't be bothered to reply and tbh it's a bit, dunno, I suppose it's a bit modern looking isn't it, and I'd want to do an rhd conversion, anyway the enthusiasm's not there so I've decided to give it a miss.
But the interior's like new, usually the leather's knackered and it's all rather tired, but this has really been looked after.

So here it is in SoCal, a rare and beautiful car.

And just to highlight what a bargain this is, here's a common or garden saloon, OK it has a 383 with 6-pack, but it's still a saloon, and at $29,995 that's more than twice the price
