Description for Jaguar XJ 1979

This was my personal car. It was, n essence, y daily driver. It needs to be rebuilt as it is EXTREMELY low mileage. A very beautiful car MARRED by a fire under the hood. As best as I can reconstruct the fuel line worked away from the fuel rail enough to have been squirting gas on the engine. When the fuel got hot enough it ignited and I had a fireball come over the hood as I was driving. I had to bailout. Realizing that my cellphone was still in the car I reached back in and got it so I could call the Fire Department and a ride home since I had several hundred dollars of groceries in the trunk. (I lost a chicken).
I don't drive much anymore due to spinal cord damage so it is for someone else to get this wonderful car back on the road.
It has been repainted once. The bottom of the backseat is vinyl, ot leather. I didn't notice for a couple months but it wasn't aged like the rest. Beyond those two things I don't know of anything that was different then when it rolled off the factory floor other than ongoing maintenance.
I will try to get the photos to tell the story but will welcome questions.
