1987 Jaguar XJ-SC Targa Very rare Talisman Silver Jaguar XJ-SC
'Targa' Cabriolet V12 'The best one in the country'. 24,000
original miles. Second owner. Winner of the recent 2020 Sir
Sterling Moss Concours 'Best in Class' This car was purchased new
in 1987 in Orlando Florida and driven for 5 years till 1985 at 23K
miles. The owner put the car away in her garage. She did not want
any of her sons to touch or drive the car. At the same time she
also owned a Corvette, Audi and a Cadillac. She died in April of
2020 having driven the car once or twice since she took ill in
1985. Current owner bought the car from the Estate with 23,300
miles. After 30 years of storage this car was carefully returned to
life in absolute original condition, the paint has the remarkable
original factory gloss. There is no rust anywhere, never been out
in the rain, being a Florida car and garaged all its life, it was
never driven out of the State. The leather interior is perfect soft
leather, no scratches or any wear areas. It has brand new V rated
tires. The Targa tops are like new inside and out, all the
accessories are in tact and like new ie the hardtop, the soft top,
the convertible top cover, rare factory Jaguar logoed lambs wool
seat covers. the rubber seals are all like new. All the factory
books and 3 sets of Keys and the XJ-SC Special Service book, so any
mechanic or owner has all the information about the car to work on
it. I have the original Sales sticker and all the records of
service since purchase have been kept. Mechanically this car has
had all the necessary work done by one of the very best V12
mechanics. A long Time stored away in a garage does not help a car.
A brand new Aluminum radiator was installed, makes the car run far
cooler. All the fluids have been replaced. The most important parts
the car needed have been replaced and recorded. This car is ready
for shows or plain driving. It turns heads wherever I go. This was
the interim car Jaguar.
