1993 Jaguar XJS Convertible
Jaguar is responsible for some of the most memorable cars ever
produced. It's no coincidence that the brand's designs tend to age
gracefully. And it's no coincidence that well-preserved Jaguars
always find a dedicated group of fans that are ready and willing to
pay top dollar for their favorite vintage. There has been a recent
uptick in European cars and if this trend has piqued your interest,

This thin line design cat has a wide stance, quick reflexes, good
looks, and is well muscled. A no rust example with a fine working
convertible top, newer A/C compressor, newer rear brakes & rotors,
snowflake wheels, and upon start-up this car just growls at

covers the floors and is showing almost no staining thanks in part
to years of careful use and a pair of color keyed floor mats. The
dash looks clean, and toggles were working for all functions. The
trunk is nicely preserved with a tan terrycloth covering
everything, even the tools are wrapped in it.
Under the hood is the original unrestored inline 6-cylinder 4.0
liter DOHC engine. Electronic fuel injection feeds this mill, and a
ZF4HP22 4-speed automatic transmission is on back to drive the 3.54
geared rear axle.
Some surface rust is noted but mostly unremarkable. Floor pans and
unibody are solid and have what could be a coating of factory

disc brakes. The exhaust system is showing some early signs of
This car started right up and ran smoothly. It handled all of our
nuances on the test track, and we had a nice cruise. Steering is
sharp, and acceleration is fine. No errant noises were heard during
our drive and all functions worked as they should. Spit Spot I
