1996 Jaguar XJS Convertible
The Jaguar car is world famous for its stylish designs, thrilling
performance, luxurious and comfortable interiors, outstanding
handling and ride, quality engineering, and state-of-the-art
technology. No other automobile manufacturer has been as remarkably
successful at creating both the world's finest luxury sedans, as
well as some of the world's most beloved sports cars. The founder
of Jaguar Cars Ltd. was Sir William Lyons. His goal was to create
world class sports sedans with "grace, space, and pace." Lyons once
said, "The car is the closest thing we will ever create to
something that is alive."
For consignment something to put some excitement into your
derriere, a Jaguar XJS. This 4-passenger sports car with its inline
6 cylinder power plant can be a slight bit of a handful when it
comes to pushing you down the superhighway, all in luxurious
comfort. A tasteful mixture of beige tones, Signal Red exterior,
and English burl, along with some innovative use of technology, and
we are going for a ride in Jaguar British style. Its final year and
taking a bow, a 2-owner car for its lifetime, and mere 34,479 miles
put on the ticker, all original paint, clean Carfax, mint condition
interior, and lots of power conveniences. Meeeeoooooowww!
This low slung British skate is bathed in Signal Red, and there is
little of a fault on this cool cat. Gaps are excellent throughout
all steel rust free panels. Chrome trimmings for headlight bezels,
wheel well surrounds, windshield trim and taillight surrounds are
also all excellent. A tan canvas convertible power up and down top
has a glass rear window, and no marks or tears to be seen. A 2 plus
2-seater car with plenty of room upfront for the engine under a
raging bonnet, passengers in the middle, and boot space abounds
too! Throw in dual chrome tipped exhausts and 16-inch Jaguar alloy
wheels, and we have the makings of luxury sport. When the top is
down, a near perfect beige boot seamlessly covers the downed top
and compliments the red exterior. Quite Right, You're bloody well
Simply put, mint although not in color, were talking condition.
Beige leather abounds with true actual walnut burl to create a
luxurious environment fit for a discriminating driver. Nice comfy,
puffy padded seats with a seamless headrest popping out the top
show no marks from use. A beauty of a central console with some of
that walnut burl inset around the shifter which also shows cruise
control, window toggles, a roof toggle, and dual ash receptacles.
As the center console rises to the dash, a factory radio is mounted
neatly within along with climate controls, running lights, defogger
and exterior lighting. The shiny inset walnut for the gauge cluster
is just pristine and shows very clean black faced gauges with white
numbers and letters and white pointers. A wood and molded vinyl
steering wheel is fronting the dash. Door panels show in beige
vinyl with more walnut burl trimmings, power seat adjustments,
storage pulls and a chromed bezels speaker within a field of taupe
color carpet. The floors are covered with dark taupe colored Wilton
carpeting and sport lighter protective floor mats to keep staining
and dirt to a minimum.
A pop of the long bonnet and it reveals a very clean and well-kept
engine bay with an overall very light patina. Within its confines
is a shiny, no corrosion 4.0 Liter inline 6-cylinder engine. It is
fed by electronic fuel injection and has a 4-speed automatic
(ZF4HP24E) original overdrive transmission with a rear axle of 3.54
gearing. All capitol condition under here. Me droogs and mates!
Slight patina, but no road dirt, or surface rust seen on all the
essentials. Independent suspension for front and rear, and power
disc brakes on all 4 corners. A stock exhaust is on and shows some
slight surface rust.
With my hankering for anything British, I hopped behind the wheel,
fired this car up and drove off to the test track. Great
acceleration, wonderful handling, straight braking when pressed
hard, and a smooth cruiser. A/C blew ice cold, courtesy a new
condenser, dryer and compressor and all power accessories were
The last year of production of the XJS and they really have gotten
it all correct. Design, which is sporty, yet luxurious, nice
efficient power, and a truly high end interior with the leather and
burl. And the top going up and down does not hurt either. Let's go
for an afternoon tool through the countryside and stop off for some
homemade toad in the hole. Yeah Baby!!
