Vehicle Description

1986 Jaguar XJSC 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, a V12 convertible sports luxury, showing up as a Jaguar XJSC from 1986. This was to be the follow up of Sir William Lyons' XKE sports car, but have it be the ultimate tourer. It was very successful, having a 21 year run, and this particular car has always been garage kept, always babied, and sports a mere 47,787 actual miles. The transmission was rebuilt in 2017 so read onward for all the goods on this Jag.

Like its predecessor the XKE it utilizes thin body styling, keeping a low profile throughout, and even looking at this car from the front on 3/4 view you can see shades of the rounded XKE rear quarter. Long bonnet starting with dual headlights flanking a thin inward raking grille and ending on the bumper with inset signal lighting and black crash bumper inserts into a chrome topper. All sheet metal is bathed in Regent Gray showing no bodywork, just normal age wear and light corrosion on the lowers. This combination of straight steel, and beautiful paint as well as other attributes to come, make this car a true 9 out of 10 on this writer's fun scale. Due to its XJSC moniker, it has a combined targa/convertible top that moves easily up and down, retaining a B pillar roll bar right behind the passengers that the operator can remove 2 roof panels for a sunroof effect, and stow them in the trunk. Or go full top down for the true wind in the hair effect.

Walnut and leather mix to form the luxurious interior. Gray door panels make use of the leather, along with gray carpeting, and a small strip of the walnut lacquered to a spit shine. Leather buckets with power controls all in fine condition make up the seats. These are sitting on either side of a center console in gray leather with a black inset shifter window controls and cruise control along with dueling ash receptacles with corned lids. For the dash walnut in true lacquered form is the dash front and above is padded by black vinyl. All knobs, levers and the sound system are inset into the walnut. A black instrument cluster is in the growler badged leather wrapped steering wheel. Gray Wilton carpeting, in lightly soiled condition floods the floors and is also in back in lieu of the rear seat, which is carpeted storage and receives the downed top.

Under the long bonnet, is revealed the V12 power plant and it is a work of art. Fuel injected 5.3 liters of High Efficiency running. This 295hp aluminum V12 produces incredible low end torque. Its 60-degree offset, and 30-degree firing rotation cause the driver to make sure after turning the key the engine is actually running! The block has a 7 bearing double honed hardened cast iron crankshaft, steel cylinder sleeves chain driven cams, and pushes power to a GM TH400 automatic transmission. This transmission was rebuilt in 2017 and now effectively and efficiently sends power to the 3.54 geared rear axle.

With all structurally sound undercarriage panels, rockers and fittings this shows just road dirt and slight patina with age. Independent coil spring suspension is also on all 4 corners, as are power disc brakes. Factory style dual exhaust is on for the exhale.

This car fired right up, and ran beautifully, with the as described idle that you really have to check to see if it is indeed running. All functions were awesome and it's a treat for me to get to drive this 3 season enjoyable skate. Cracking good showI say!

Essentially a car in the condition as close to when it left the factory as one can get. Interior is all original, the paint is light aged but still gorgeous and the engine bay is truly tightly buttoned up. Lovely mate! You can drive the bloody thing like you stole it, and an even bigger grin will appear. Spit Spot!
