1987 Jaguar XJ-S 5.3HE

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

From a dis­tance here was an XJ-S that re­ally looked the part, but up closer it showed scope for im­prove­ment. The paint (but for­tu­nately not the body­work) re­ally wasn’t all that. Its light gold metal­lic hue of­fered up a few nicks and scratches and the bright­work was marked, while vex­ingly there were mud­flaps on the near­side but not on the off­side. The in­side was very much the same – not scruffy, but in des­per­ate need of a good clean, the driver’s door panel and both front seats be­ing no­tably dirty. The en­gine bay was tidy and it sounded good, and it made what it was worth.
