1988 JAGUAR XJ-S V12 CON­VERT­IBLE

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

There are Jaguar XJ-S Con­vert­ibles, and then there are ones as good as this. This em­phat­i­cally was not a ten-bob mil­lion­aire’s mo­tor, but one that had been owned by the ven­dor since early 1993. It came with full main dealer and spe­cial­ist his­tory, had been Wax­oyled in 1995 and seen lit­tle use other than in the sum­mer. And if the his­tory wasn’t enough, the body­work, paint, chrome and in­te­rior would have con­verted the ‘maybe’ bid­der into some­one want­ing to have a go. Great paint and body­work isn’t al­ways a com­mon sight on an XJS, but this was just right, as was the cream in­te­rior. The £11,500 up­per es­ti­mate soon kicked into the long grass as bid­ding went on to a stonk­ing 27 grand.
