HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD IT?

I’m think­ing about sell­ing my XJ-S Con­vert­ible to fund the pur­chase of an­other clas­sic. I have owned it since 2014 and have had many nice drives out in it but hav­ing chil­dren, I have now I need to re­place it with a more fam­i­lyfriendly clas­sic.

HOW MUCH HIS­TORY?

It has his­tory up to 2008 and was owned by a wed­ding car hire com­pany. A lo­cal man who was club pres­i­dent of the Jaguar Driver’s Club was keep­ing an eye on it. When it came for sale in 2008 he snapped it up. At the time it had 120,400 mile on the clock. His full restora­tion of the car (in­clud­ing a new soft-top) is doc­u­mented in pho­tos. Fol­low­ing the restora­tion he did all his own ser­vic­ing on the and so have I.

WHAT’S LEFT TO DO ON IT?

It’s ready to go and needs noth­ing do­ing to it other than per­sonal touches. I was go­ing to fit a full stain­less ex­haust but now I need to change I’m no longer look­ing at that.

HAS IT BEEN MOD­I­FIED?

The XJ-S is fully stan­dard with no mod­i­fied parts other than an ex­tra elec­tronic tem­per­a­ture switch to the rear of the en­gine that turns the cool­ing fans on. The rea­son for this is that the rear of the en­gine gets hot more quickly than the front.
