1989 Jaguar XJS convertible
This car has been through several owners, however, at least 2 of the 7 were dealers simply moving it on.
This car has only 94,000 miles and has been with the current owner for nearly ten years, always garaged and always well maintained.
There is no accident history however it is known that the car has been repainted just before this owner purchased the car.
Within the last 3 years the car has rec'd all new oil seals over the top and bottom of the V12, all rubber hoses under hood have been replaced, tires, battery and rear calipers are new and the rack and pinion was pulled and rebuilt.
The V12, auto transmission and rear end are all original/numbers matching to this car.
The seats in her are starting to get tired but can easily be saved with some ColorPlus or Leatherique, the rest of the interior is in very good shape. The paint looks great and with just a little attention, will look even better. There is no rust or rot anywhere under this car and there is a very small spot bubbling in the left rear wheel well.
The car runs and drive beautifully and and does not suffer the somewhat prevalent overheat issues.
The power top operates easily however a relay for one of the rear windows isn't operating and the window does not come back up when the top is being raised. The top does have a tear that has been repaired, it does not leak.
The interior is all leather and the seats are power and heated. The car has all the usual Jaguar bells and whistles, A/C (needs a recharge), tilt wheel, power windows, cruise control and power top.
This great grand touring convertible can be had for just $7000
Any questions, to schedule a time to see her, for many more photos or make an offer, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for the interest.
There is something magical about a V12 engine. They are under the hoods of some of the most-exclusive high-performance cars in the world. Think Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Aston Martin. The sound of a V12 engine is unlike any other engine type, with a turbine-like whirr that is absolutely addicting. There is a downside with a […]
There is something magical about a sports or GT car with a V12 under its hood. The V12 is the mythic engine layout that has won hundreds of races.
The world in the mid-1970s was very different than it was just five years previous. Drivers’ tastes had changed;
Prices may continue to soar at collector car auctions, but the June report of the Hagerty Market Rating sustained its largest decline in the past 14 months.
While “speedster” is most-often associated with “bathtub” Porsche 356 roadsters of the 1950s, the term goes back to the Brass Era days of stripped-down sports cars, from pricey Mercer Raceabouts to the facsimiles hand-built from abundant Model T Fords. The Pick of the Day is a sharp-looking 1914 Ford Model T Speedster that appears to […]
In the video-game world of make-believe, where you can perform extreme driving exploits in pretty much whatever vehicle you choose, the car model most commonly found on virtual roads is… wait for it… the Volkswagen Beetle. The Volkswagen leads the list for the model that games makers most often place in their products, from Grand […]
At some point, this coronvirus impingement will end and we’ll want to be out and about, cruising the highways and byways with our convertible tops down. A dealership in Fort Wayne, Indiana, suggests the Pick of the Day, a 1966 Lincoln Continental convertible, would be an ideal choice for the open road. “This is a […]
Larry Edsall, founding editor of the ClassicCars.com Journal, and I enjoy a mutual passion not only for the written word, but for motor racing in its many incarnations. We have been around the sport for longer than either of us cares to admit – but we both got to experience a gilded age, Larry in […]
Before I ever wrote about cars, I wrote about sports, albeit including motorsports, and one of the first things a young sportswriter learns, at least back when I was learning, is “there’s no cheering in the press box.” Your press pass entitled you to the best seat in the stadium or arena or whatever playing […]
With seemingly all car events canceled, our editors have some time on their hands, which means we’re doing a lot of “bench racing” these days. The subject of favorite racing drivers came up. Since managing editor Tom Stahler and founding editor Larry Edsall each has a long history covering motorsports, we suggested each select his […]
