Ebay item 2/1/20
Current bid: $5,000 reserve not met 9 bids 5 days left in auction, seller classicautomall, 90k miles.
For consignment a V12 luxury sports coupe which will get you down the road quickly, and growl at you all at the same time. This cool cat is highly optioned, runs quietly, and presents beautifully. If you like leather, burl veneer, and the sound and smoothness of a V12 engine, then you should look into this Jag well into the now affordable range.
Bathed in barley (tan) leather door panels and front buckets and rear 2 plus 2 seat all present with no tears or major faults. A mixture of burl veneer adds highlight to the door panels, accenting to the mid console, and personality to the original dash where it is very prevalent. The burl on the center console near the shift lever has seen some damage, and some is peeled off and cracked. We also see cruise control, power windows, and climate controls. Beige carpet floods the floors, and a headliner which shows some sag is being held up by the factory wood staves which run from door to door and curve upward with the contour of the roof.
The original 5.4-liter V12 engine showing slight patina and some corrosion, sits tightly and snugly under the hood. Lucas/Bosch fuel injection feed the 12 cylinders, and a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is on back.
Underneath we can note some surface rust, but mostly structurally sound metal on the unibody, and floor pans as well as the rockers. Independent suspension is on all 4 corners, and power disc brakes are also all around.
This car started right up, and we were off to the test track. On our way we made note the fuel gauge read E and did not move, and the radio turns on but reads CODE, which usually means the battery was replaced and it went without power and needs reset. Overall though it was an impressive car, with rail like handling, great performance on the acceleration and handling front, and all in all very comfortable and a responsive car to drive. Those V12 engines just run soooo smoooothly I always am impressed with them. Especially when they are totally in tune.
A great powerful cat with this V12 XJS, plenty of conveniences and leather and burl. Flying buttress B pillars and thin body design are sure hooks for the Jag aficionados, and this one in good condition still has lots of life left to go outside, find the nearest country road, and play! MEOW!
