Car to be at auction 10/19
The Corpus Christi Old Car Museum Auction
1990 Jaguar XJ-S Coupe
OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
CHASSIS NO: SAJNW5840LC170842
• 145-MPH top speed while luxury cruising
• One of the greatest V-12 engines ever produced
• The clean, original bodywork and paint looks great
• Enjoy the pinnacle of British motoring from the era
The XJ-S took inspiration from Mercedes-Benz’s 450SLC, a luxury cruiser quite capable of comfortably eating up the miles. To that end, this lovely XJ-S Coupe was fitted with Bosch-Lucas fuel injection, a three-speed Borg-Warner automatic transmission., air-conditioning, power steering and power brakes, and leather upholstery. By 1990 when this example was completed, burled elm wood trim, heated seats, and anti-lock-brakes were also added to the mix. This lovely Silver Frost coupe has been well-cared-for in a fine collection for many years and shows today with very nice paint finishes over all the original body panels. The door and hood gaps are excellent, with bright chrome and polished trim elements. Add in the traditional chrome wire-spoked knock-off wheels, and you have a classic British luxury car look that’s hard to beat. The original well-bolstered leather seats are in place and are both power adjusted and heated. As befits a gentleman’s highway car with leather upholstery and air-conditioning; power steering, power brakes, power windows and power locks allow effortless operation, and everything on the classic woodgrain dash looks clean and correct. With plenty of power and incredible handling, it’s no wonder that an XJ-S model in this fine condition is a highly desirable prize.
Under the long hood, the big V-12 completely fills the engine bay with a presence few can match, with smooth power that is the envy of other marques. By 1990, this was an $82,000 automobile, so not everyone could afford such luxury, but today, everything is still tidy and looks to be well-cared-for, making this Jaguar a real find for a lucky bidder in Corpus Christi.
