Description
Lot #316 - To my eye there has never been a better looking convertible built than the 1989 to 1992 Jaguar XJS. In my opinion, the style downfall of this car began in 1993 with the change to European-type headlights and rectangular tail lights. These cars have gotten a bad rap as far as reliability is concerned. As long as they are repaired and serviced by someone who knows the car, they are a wonderful, smooth automobile. When I took the car in to have an oil leak fixed, a leak in one of the cam tower gaskets was found. The labor to reach the leak was such that it was stripped down to the bare heads, so I decided to have them pull the heads to replace the head gaskets. At this point it was so close to being completely disassembled that I authorized them to overhaul the complete engine. During the major 60,000 mile factory service, the technician at Jaguar dealership forgot to refill the differential with oil, they ended up replacing the whole differential. When I purchased this car in 1994 it had 49,000 miles on it. The car now has only 72,000 original miles!! A new, top-of-the line European convertible top was installed in 2004. This is the Collection Classic edition, built in late 1990, with chrome honeycomb wheels and upgraded piping on the Connally leather seats. With it's engine rebuilt 15,000 miles ago, the differential replaced 12,000 miles ago, and the factory GM TH 400 transmission in perfect condition, you can drive this classic for a long time to come!
