1976 Jaguar XJ12C Barn Find from Classic Brit TV Show for Sale

by Sam Jemielity

As a sequel to the 1960s British spy parody TV show The Avengers, The New Avengers became a cult classic in the 1970s. Main character John Steed complemented his debonair Savile Row swagger with an equally classy 1976 Jaguar XJ12C with a Broadspeed body kit, extra-wide tires and British Racing Green paint job.

Having recently turned up in a barn, the famous Jag goes up for auction in England in October, with an expected winning bid coming roughly between $15,500 and $18,500.

However, as the video reveals, the current vehicle will require serious restoration before it resembles the slick, 12-cylinder 5.3-liter Jaguar from the show. With a backing track from The Quaintest Show on Earth called “High as a Tide,” the clip reveals the utter disrepair in which the Jaguar emerged when discovered in a barn.

With some tender loving care, however, perhaps this avenging automobile will have its own successful sequel.
