Description for Jaguar XJS 1987

THIS IS TRULY AN UNMOLESTED RARE JAGUAR! THE ORIGINAL OWNER WAS CLARK CLIFFORD THE FAMOUS WASHINGTON LAWYER WHO WAS ANADVISERTO FOUR AMERICAN PRESIDENTS. HE SOLD IT IN 1996 WITH 25189 MILES TO A GOOD FRIEND WHO GAVE IT TO HIS WIFE AS A SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PRESENT. I PURCHASED IT FROM HER THIS LAST WINTER . SHE WAS 85 AND FELT IT WAS TIME TO SELL SINCE SHE RARELY EVER DROVE IT AND HAD OTHER VEHICLES THAT SHE DROVE EVERYDAY.THE CARFAX SHOWS NO ACCIDENTS AS DOES AUTO CHECK AND THE LAST REPORTED MILES ARE 33835 IN 2003. I PURCHASED IT WITH 38995 MILES. I WAS SO SURPRISED WHEN I REALIZED THE 4 TIRES WHICH LOOKED GREAT WERE THE ORIGINAL PIRELLI TIRES WITH THE ORIGINAL DATE OF PRODUCTION 1987. I OF COURSE REPLACED THEM IMMEDIATELY. IT STARTS RIGHT UP WITH NO NOISES AND RUNS GREAT. THE BRAKES ARE GREAT AND RIDES SMOOTHLY DOWN THE ROAD WITH ITS BRAND NEW TIRES.. THE T-TOPS COME RIGHT OFF AND DO NOT LEAK. THE SOFT CONVERTIBLE TOP IS IN ITS ORIGINAL CARRYING CASE AND IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION. THE PLASTIC REAR GLASS IS CLEAR AS WHEN IT WAS NEW. THE CONVERTIBLE BOOT COVER IS ALSO INCLUDED AND IS LIKE NEW.THE POWER ANTENNA DID NOT GO DOWN WHEN I PURCHASED IT AND I HAVE TEMPORARILY REPLACED THE UNIT WITH A SHORT RUBBER MAST. I AM TRYING TO FIND ONE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER BUT CANNOT PROMISE ONE BUT WILL LEAVE THE ORIGINAL IN THE TRUNK. THE RADIO AND THE CASSETTE WORK WITH THE LEFT FRONT SPEAKER NOT WORKING BUT I WILL TRY TO FIX. BOTH POWER WINDOWS WORK. EVERYTHING WORKS IN THE INSTRUMENT PANEL INCLUDING THE CLOCK. THE PAINT LOOKS TO BE ORIGINAL AND SHOWS GREAT CONSIDERING IT IS ALMOST 30 YEARS OLD. THE LEATHER SEATS AND CARPET ARE ALSO IN GREAT CONDITION. I WILL INCLUDE A PIC OF THE REAR HEADLINER AROUND THE REAR WINDOW THAT SHOWS ITS AGE BUT IS NOT TORN . I WILL ALSO INCLUDE A PIC OF THE WOOD GRAIN ON THE RIGHT OF THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER THAT IS NOT PERFECT BUT STILL OK. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT PURCHASE FOR SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO RESTORE THIS RARE AND UNMOLESTED ORIGINALJAGUAR 12 CYLINDER CABRIOLETTO ITS ORIGINAL GLORY( WOULDN'T TAKE MUCH ). PLEASE LOOK AT THE PICTURES AND USE THE MAGNIFIER TO SEE HOW UNMOLESTED AND ORIGINAL THE JAGUAR IS. I AM SELLING IT BECAUSE I AM TRYING TO FINISH RESTORING A 1955 T-BIRD..( ONLY ROOM FOR ONE IN THE GARAGE ) . BID WITH CONFIDENCE!
