Now with us is this very pretty and rare to find in black, 1990 5.3 V12 XJS Convertible. This car has benefited from a bare metal respray on the outside and new carpets, restored wood and reconolised leather on the inside. It’s been a Labour of love by it’s owner and now right when it just needs the final minor things to finish, he has to sell it due to personal circumstances. It drives very well (gearbox recently serviced) with no nasty bangs or rattles. Engine is smooth, sounds great out of the exhausts, shows great oil pressure and no signs of any problems. Brakes etc all function as designed but the abs light has come on since a new battery was fitted. The electric windows, locks and convertible roof all operate correctly. Coming with the car is a file of paperwork that has reciepts etc showing the work carried out over the years and there is a current mot through to October.
Minor bits I know that need to be sorted, there may be others, are things like the light switches for the interior lights don’t appear to work and their small wood surround was lost when all the wood was refinished, so a replacement has been found but it’s not as shiny. Front headlight wipers have also gone missing and the steering wheel is slightly out of line when driving (tracking?). You can use as is and sort out the little niggles as you go. Prices of XJS Jags have gone up massively year on year, this one is offered at £16995 so well down on comparable cars, but it needs to go now not in the middle of summer.
