2268 1986 Jaguar XJS
The Jaguar XJ-S coupe was produced from 1976 to 1996. The XJ-S superseded the famous Jag E-Type and, although it never had quite the same sporting image, the XJ-S was a competent grand touring car. This all-original, one owner (bought new in Greensboro, N.C.) 1986 Jaguar XJ-S is a garage kept classic with only 27,011 miles on the odometer. Both the Sebring Red exterior original paint, accented by BBS aluminum alloys (new factory alloy wheels still in the box also go with the car) and the Biscuit Tan leather interior (also original) are in very good condition. It is equipped with power steering, 4-wheel power disc brakes and other convenience features including: A/C, cruise, power tinted windows, telescopic wheel and AM/FM/Cassette sound system. XJ-S coupes are powered by Jaguar's 5.3L alloy SOHC V-12, a mainstay in Jaguar line-up for over two decades. The XJ-S high-output version, the 5.3HE, is fitted with an advanced Lucas Digital-P fuel injection system and the 'May-Fireball' high compression heads. This 291hp motor is backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission and factory differential. Michelin '50 Series" radials are virtually new. If you have ever wanted an affordable original Jag, come inspect this XJ-S. It is certain to find a new home shortly.ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS"
