• Remarkably well-preserved XJS in unrestored condition
• Completely original car with no modifications and exhaustive list of additional factory options
• Lovingly cared for with a comprehensive service record and previous Jaguar owners-club President owner.
The seller, a fastidious collector of classics, added this XJ-S to his collection 9 years ago, purchasing it from the outgoing president of the Jaguar owners club – himself having owned and cherished the car for 13 years. Since, it has been enjoyed as a weekend toy, prized among a collection of other classics.
Every MOT since 1994 has safely been kept in the records for the car, substantiating its 79,000 total miles covered and in July this year, it passed its MOT with no advisories, providing another year’s peace of mind for its next owner.
A comprehensive service history has been maintained with full Jaguar service history up until 61,000 miles at which point the servicing demands were taken on, almost exclusively, by a Jaguar specialist with the most recent service taking place in October of last year. In total, there are 23 stamps in the original service book and, along with original Jaguar handbooks, the current owner has kept numerous bills and correspondence relating to the car since its purchase, including a recent bill totalling £4,000 on new rear brakes, handbrake and ignition items to bring it into excellent condition for its new owner. A record of service history is detailed below:

Inside you’ll find that the vast majority of Jaguar’s extensive factory option boxes were ticked by the original owner in 1989, most notably the beautiful light grey interior which presents in fantastic condition. Electric windows, electric heated seats, cruise control and the original radio are all present and are said to be in perfect working order.
Minimal wear can be seen around the interior, with only slight abrasion noted on the driver’s seat and a small split to the veneer by the gearstick. The rear seats are said to never have been sat in and the original carpets are in excellent condition, as too is the roof lining which has been replaced in its lifetime.
In the boot, the original jack can be found in its bag, alongside its complete took kit and un-opened touch-up paints.
Wearing its original Westminster dark blue paint, this Jaguar is in exceptional cosmetic condition with no evidence of respray or welding work having been undertaken.
Unique side strips bearing the Jaguar logo offer a pleasant finishing touch to enhance the overall look. Remarkably, there are said to be no dents or scratches on this XJ-S, with the only minor blemish noted as being a small blister in the paint on the driver’s door which hasn’t caused enough of a detraction in the past 9 years for the seller to address it.
Front spotlights are present, along with original covers and the brightwork is in good condition all around with only slight wear. The wheels and tyres are both in excellent condition. Underneath, the car is said to have had underbody protection applied from new, seemingly responsible for the lack of rust noted.
Thanks to the aforementioned, extremely well-maintained service record, this XJ-S is claimed to ‘start and stop like a new car’ by the seller. Under the bonnet looks extremely clean and original with no leaks visible and with no advisories noted on the most recent MOT, the next owner can be confident in buying a mechanically sound Jaguar.
