1981 Classic Jaguar XJ 12 HE For Restoration

Here we have My Late Husbands Much loved Jaguar XJ12 HE 1981 the car has been is storage for the last 13 years and not moved or run till last week when my son got it out and put a new battery on it. The engine runs nice but we think it may have an air valve stuck as it runs a bit over tick over or the auto choke is stuck on, it goes into drive and moves OK and the brakes work. We have have had a Friend who is a Mot-er come and look over it and he say it not need a lot for a mot 1 exhaust is blowing new wipers and washer pump horn and the fast running looking at and rear fog light not working. The chrome work on the car is pitted where it has been in storage for a long time and some rust has come out on all wheel arches and front valance (see photos). The inside of the car is in very good condition and every thing works (windows central locking all gauges and clocks) all work. The car is sold as seen for restoration as it has not been on the road for 13 Years and will need to be taken away on a trailer or transporter as has NO MOT OR TAX The Car is At SANDWICH KENT at my sons house.
