1997 Jaguar XK8 fhc

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Find­ing a de­cent first­gen­er­a­tion XK8 isn’t easy, with the ear­li­est ex­am­ples now more than 20 years old. And while their im­proved Ford-in­flu­enced build qual­ity en­sured greater longevity, there’s no ac­count­ing for the way some own­ers treat their cars. This ex­am­ple pre­sented ex­tremely well, de­spite it hav­ing six pre­vi­ous own­ers. The body­work was very good, with im­pres­sive panel align­ment and no sign of cor­ro­sion, with just one scratch around the driver’s door han­dle. In­side there were few signs of wear on the driver’s seat (which nor­mally suf­fer on Jaguars of this age) and door pan­els, and the wood had lasted well. Sen­si­bly bought at this price.
