1967 Jaguar 420G

This 1967 Jaguar 1967 420G fondly known as ‘ BIG BERTHA’ by the team at Jules Bodycraft.

The Jaguar was commisioned to Jules Bodycraft by a local customer. He obtained the Jaguar from his late Father, who had purchased the Jaguar when it was 18 months old, the Jaguar had only covered an astonishing 18,000 miles and had been kept in storage since 1977 when the speedometer had broken.

the customer had asked Jules Bodycraft to undertake the neccessary work to get the Jaguar in pristine shape ready for his daughters wedding in May 2019.
