Vehicle Background: The second owner of this vehicle purchased it in 2005. She knew Ms. Wilson personally and told us "That Jag was her first big purchase when she started gaining success. It was a very big deal to her, very special." 1977 was when Heart's album "Little Queen" was released and the Jag purchase coincided closely with Heart being featured in Rolling Stone in July 1977.

The decedent was a huge Heart fan and traveled to see them perform in several countries over the years. He bought the Jag from the second owner as a fan souvenir and had it shipped to Vermont and placed in storage, never to be driven. Shipping documents verify it was never driven after leaving California. Sadly, he passed away before completing the repairs and driving it.

The vehicle was in driving condition when last sold, but was in need of repairs to be reliable on the road. The exact nature of the repairs needed is not known.

Vehicle description:

  • All factory original, all parts are present and included. However, before his death, the decedent was in the process of replacing fuel pumps and all fuel, oil and air filters. Parts that are present with the car but NOT currently installed include the rear bumper and bumper hangars?, the 2 fuel tanks, right and left rear quarter panels, spare tire (in excellent condition with original matching factory rim), right and left air intake manifolds.
