Value My Classic
Every week, we give a market valuation based on your description and photos.
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.
