1992 Jaguar XJS Convertible
29k Miles (yes, only 29,000 miles!)
5.7cid V-12 Engine, GM THM400 Automatic Transmission

Everything works, convertible top is Brand New!
Cold A/C, upgraded
Power Windows, Power Seats
New custom exhaust, purrs like a kitten!

This is the one you've been waiting for......
As near perfect as any XJS Convertible you will find!

This Jaguar was purchased by me last June with just over 29,000 miles. It now has 29,500 miles.  During the last 500 miles, I've made many enhancements for your driving pleasure.

Unlike many sellers who drone on endlessly with flowery descriptions but they don't have a clue what's under the paint......I've owned many XJS's and know exactly what it takes to go from an "average" XJS to an "Oustanding" XJS!

New in the last 500 miles:
Convertible Top, Including liner
Inside Headliner

Front Bilstein Shocks
Rear Boge Shocks
Both are high-end, high performance shock absorber manufacturers.

Rear Sport Spring Set (4)
Check out the ride-height (gap above tires). 
Most cars of this vintage will be substantally sagging over the rear wheels.  (Go ahead, check out those other XJS vehicles on Ebay!)
Why new rear springs you say? 
The rear springs on XJS cars are much smaller than the front springs..
Even though only 29k miles, the springs have been holding the car up for 22 years...they get tired!!

Addco Performance Sport Roll Bar - Front
Addco Performance Sport Roll Bar - Rear
Eliminates all body roll during turns...Take turns (or freeway ramps) at any speed, and the car stays flat!

Rear Trailing Arm Bushings (Large & Small ends)
Note large-bushing air-gaps mounted sideways to reduce IRS movement- Originally installed in-line which allows IRS to roll
High-Performance Connecting Links
   Fully adjustable to allow for rear sway bar tuning

Custom Free-Flowing Exhaust System
  Stacked glass-pack mufflers reduce back pressure, engine runs cooler & delivers a pleasing note, especially with top down
Pirelli P600 Radial Tires
   Jaguar XJS's OEM used Pirelli Tires for their performance, endurance, and styling

Front Brake Calipers & Pads
   New Dual-Piston Front Calipers, New Premium Pads

New Interior Ski Slope, w/cup-holders (no ashtrays)
   Finally! Someone designed a replacement ski-slope with cup holders!
Oil Change - Oil Filter - Lube (yes, this car has grease fittings)
Marelli Distributor Rotor

All new speakers in front doors and rear cabinet area

New Halogen Fog Lamp bulbs

New Poly Steering-Rack Bushings
   Steering is tight, car tracks beautifully!

Paint appears original, body is slick and smooth.
   There was a minor paint touchup done that will be hard to discover!

Now if a similar car you see on Ebay is advertised as "absolutely perfect", or "simply stunningly", recognize salesman-speak when you hear it.
While these vintage cars can be in 'really good' condition, at 20+ yrs old, they ALL have some issues.  You will always be chasing some little thing on these cars, so if you're allergic to maintenence, this car is "not" for you.
Here are the "very few" deficiencies I've noted on this car...See pictures:
   Carpet in rear deck "where sun had shone through" was replaced. Slightly off color to the floor carpeting.
   Previous owner replaced original hood "Growler" medallion with a "Leaper" medallion
 (The Leaper was only used on sedans (aka Saloons)
       While this may not be a big deal, it will definately subtract points at a Concours judging event!
        (And even more painful, sometimes you'll see a Growler AND a Leaper together on the same hood...Yikes!)

   Electric door locks are tempermental.
       Trunk however can be locked separately. Recommend never locking convertible doors anyway!

This is an ultra-smooth ride. 
Starts easily, fast idles when cold, RPM's drop to 800 when warm. 
No warning lights, bells, or whistles after normal start up.

Car eagerly accelerates, responding to your desire.....shifts smooth, stops quickly.
Exceptionally quiet body noise for a convertible - No clicks, pops, groans, thumps, etc.

All interior courtesy lamps work when doors open.
All exterior lamps are fully functional.

Electric windows and electric top works perfectly.
Trip computer face is flawless
(most this age are heat-fogged). 
Rear window defogger (wires on glass) works fine.

OEM Cruise Control engages and holds perfect speed. 
OEM AM/FM/Stereo Radio and Cassette Deck are both rebuilt.
Rear deck (trunk) lid is flawless. 
(Many in this era are rusted along outer bottom edge)

New battery in trunk,  plus small trickle charger permanently mounted.
(Previous owner didn't drive it much!)
Includes original Jaguar tool kit in trunk pouch
Includes all owners' manuals
Includes brand-new, never used spare tire on mag rim
(Rim is identical to mounted tires)
Includes canvas OEM parade cover
(covers retracted convertible top)
Includes several repair manuals on CD

Did I mention this car only has 29k miles?

This car is a head turner and will be your pride and other's envy.. 
Can you tell I'm a little bit of a fanatic about how I maintain my Jaguars?

This is an exceptional, reliable, exotic, and highly sought-after automobile.
I'd REALLY like to sell it to someone that has previously owned an XJS so they can realize just how much better one can be with the right knowledge and TLC!

The NADA Guide "Average" Retail on this beauty is $15400, "High Retail" is $22,100
(Look it!)
I am pleased to offer as a buy-it-now for only $13,900

$1000 non-refundable deposit via paypal within 24 hours.
Balance due either bank-wire or cash in-person
Fly into Daytona International Airpoirt, and drive it home. 
I'll assist with vehicle transporter if you prefer this method.

You see my feedback, you know I'm a straight shooter.

Jaguar Land Rover says key models in short supply, some have six-month wait lists

Fri, 08 Aug 2014

Care for a bit more proof that the Jaguar Land Rover portfolio of vehicles is the best it's ever been? Well, the Indian-owned pair of brands saw a record year in 2013, while 2014 has seen a 14-percent increase in sales. The crazy thing is, though, is that figure could be even higher, provided the company had the production capacity.
JLR is running a six-month waiting list on two of its most popular models, the Range Rover Sport (above) and Range Rover. According to Mark White, the company's chief technologist for body engineering, the blame can be placed on the paint shop at the company's Solihull factory, in the UK.
"We will probably max out the paint shop before we max out the body shop. Putting the second body shop in has given us the flexibility to ebb and flow the different models that go through there and meet the capacity demands we've got," White told Automotive News. "However, you always hit a bottleneck somewhere. And the paint shop is probably going to be the next biggest obstacle."

Jaguar launches new classic racing series

Fri, 14 Nov 2014

One-make racing series have become all the rage for customers who want to actually race their exotic sports cars (or competition-spec versions of them, anyway). Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and Aston Martin all offer such programs, and Porsche supports several. Now Jaguar is getting in on the action as well, but instead of turning one of its production models - we're looking at you, F-Type - into a spec racer, it's launching an historic racing series instead.
The 2015 Jaguar Heritage Challenge will be open to cars made by the Leaping Cat marque before 1966, including the C-Type, D-Type, E-Type and Mk I and MkII sedans. The series, which builds on the success of the previous Jaguar E-Type Challenge, will be administered by the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC) based at Silverstone and will include four races in the UK and one in Europe, with the exact schedule still to be determined.
The program was announced at the launch of the Jaguar Heritage Driving Experience, where Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations director John Edwards was also named chairman of the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, replacing former Jaguar managing director Mike O'Driscoll who chaired the organization for the past five years.
