1976 Panther J72 V12 5.3 Manual RHD Chassis 322R. Supplied new by H.R.Owen in London to Peter de Savary the international entrepreneur.Finished in Sapphire Blue with Light Tan hide piped blue with a Dark Blue Mohair hood and tonneau cover.

The car is in superb condition having covered only 12,000 miles from new with 4 owners the last since 2003 as part of a private collection. We supplied the car in 2003 prior to which we carried out a sympathetic restoration including a total repaint in the original colour plus rechrome.

This is one of only 12 Jaguar V12 5.3 engined cars built and one of just 3 Right Hand Drive cars built, one of which was destroyed in a fire, making this one of just 2 examples that remain and the rarest of all the J72,s built by Robert Jankel at Panther Westwinds, which totalled less than 500 in all between 1972 and 1981 and offers a unique opportunity to acquire one of these fabulous incarnations of the Jaguar SS 100 which cost new over £9000 which was 3 times the price of a Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster.

Please note cherished reg. MWJ 196 does not form part of the sale.
