For Sale: 1989 Jaguar XJS in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1989 Jaguar XJS convertible mixes classic British style and V12 power with the right maintenance and upgrades all-around. The result is that iconic look you love and all the right features to keep you papered in the proper Jaguar fashion.

The attractiveness is apparent and instant the moment you lay eyes on it. The timeless style of the XJS convertible has a sleek design that goes with the company's cat-like reputation, but it never loses the elegant poise of a good European upper class cruiser. The creamy white paint is a timeless hue, and when combined with the dark brown top, it really gives this one the color combo of a traditional English cottage. You'll love all the subtle details, like how the V12 emblem in the low grille reflects off the mirror-like bumper, and the intricate pattern of the lattice alloy wheels that are the perfect representation of a premium performance machine.

Like the best upper-class convertibles, the tan pinstripe on the outside is a preview of the full tan leather interior. This has all the best features you expect from a Jaguar, including a tilt steering column, cruise control, power locks, and power front seats so you and your passenger can find the ideal comfort position. The steering wheel is a grippy upgraded Momo unit, and it offers a nice view of the crisp full gauge package. The stereo has been upgraded to a modern AM/FM/CD unit with Bluetooth, so you can utilize modern music player in this vintage Jag. Power windows and a power convertible top mean you don't even have to leave the driver's seat if you want to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your hair experience. Not only has the air conditioner been upgraded to modern R134a, but also you have heated seats. So you can enjoy top-down motoring no matter if it's a crisp fall evening or noon in the summertime.

The 5.3-liter V12 engine provides the kind of effortless performance that you'd expect from Coventry's biggest cat. This fuel-injected powerhouse has a smooth and torquey feeling that makes it effortlessly luxurious around town. But when it's time to have a little fun, it makes a wonderful howl and pulls like a freight train. The automatic transmission is the familiar TH400 sourced from GM, so you know it has the robustness to handle the V12's power with ease. But this is more than just a good powertrain. The XJS runs on a fully independent suspension that has been built to balance luxury cruising with spirited driving. This is reinforced by power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and wide BF Goodrich tires.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. It's the sleek and classic droptop with all the right vintage features and upgrades. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call now!
