"Matilda is settling down well in her new home, very cosy in our double garage, the paperwork is getting sorted, She has been cleared by HM Revenue & Customs, and I and now in the process of getting her UK registered and licensed, and then the fun starts. I would like to provide you with the following testimonial. 'While searching on-line for a classic marque I chanced upon Waimak Classic Cars and they had the very car I wanted to buy. The whole process of acquiring the car and transporting it from NZ to the UK was made easier by the professionalism of both Jesmond and Gloria, from making contact with an acquaintance of mine in Christchurch and assisting with the viewing of the car including a test drive, and their very friendly and reassuring contact throughout the purchase and shipping of the car, notwithstanding the significant time lapse between our two countries. I have no hesitation in recommending Jesmond and Gloria of Waimak Classic Cars to anyone interested in buying a classic car from them."Hugh Ivins, Norfolk, United Kingdom
The XJC's, otherwise known as the XJ Coupes, are a rare two-door version of the standard four door saloons.
They were clearly meant to be the sporty XJ models and overall, the XJC's are quite well proportioned and have a masculine air to them.
The styling of the pillarless coupe gives a sense of "openness" that is often associated with a convertible. The shorter wheelbase also gives the car an incredible appearance of balance and aggressiveness. All coupes were equipped with a black vinyl roof as standard equipment. The car somehow feels quite smaller than the longer wheelbase four door cars, which is only four inches shorter, and its handling is quite different as well.
