A fully restored 1972 Jaguar XJ12 for sale
This MKI was supplied from new to Switzerland on the 29th September 1972 and registered there on the 30th February 1973. It was exported to the Netherlands on the 16th October 2009, after it had been garaged in Switzerland and not used for over 31 years from 1988 to 2009! The odometer reads a mere 83,901 km. A few years ago the car underwent full restoration in Holland. Neither cost nor effort was spared to achieve a sublime finish to the car, everything being duly photographically recorded. The perfectly straight, as good as new bodywork has corresponding perfect fitting body panels. Likewise the uncorroded underbody is fantastic and as good as new. The paint finish and chrome work are again of an excellent high quality. An XJ restoration of this higher quality is most certainly a rarity! It has an original colour coded finish of ‘White with a Dark Blue leather trim’. This XJ has its Jaguar Heritage certified ‘Matching Numbers’ engine.
We have yet to come across a better immaculately restored XJ12!
Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where we currently have our second workshop and detailing shop.
Moving to Brummen
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.
During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.
As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason we participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.
A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both our genes and the identity of this family owned business.
