Power SeatsNew custom exhaust. purrs like a kitten! This is the one you've been waiting for!As near perfect as any other XJS Convertible. on Ebay or elsewhere! This Jaguar was purchased by me July 2013 with just over 29. 00 miles. I know XJS Jaguars. having owned many in the last 20 years. and I do my own workThis XJS now has 29. 00 miles. During the last 800 miles. I've made many enhancements that increase driving pleasure. Unlike many sellers who drone endlessly with their flowery descriptions but don't have a clue what's under the paint. I've owned many XJS's and know exactly what it takes to go from an "average" XJS to an "Oustanding" XJS! New in the last 800 miles:Convertible Top. Inside & out. including HeadlinerRear deck carpeting including rear storage areaOEM Radio (AM/FM/Cassette) completely refurbishedFront Bilstein ShocksRear Boge ShocksBoth are high-end. high performance shock absorber manufacturers. Rear Sport-Spring Set of 4Check out the ride-height (gap above tires) that others are selling. Most cars of this vintage will be substantally saggingWhy new rear springs you say? Even though with only 29k miles. these small springs have been holding the car up for 23 years. they get tired!!Addco brand Performance Sport Roll Bar - FrontAddco brand Performance Sport Roll Bar - RearEliminates all body roll during turns. Take turns (or freeway ramps) at any speed. nbsp;the car stays perfectly flat!Rear Trailing Arm Bushings (Large & Small ends)Note large-bushing air-gaps mounted sideways to reduce IRS movement- Originally installed in-line which allows IRS to rollHigh-Performance Connecting Links Fully adjustable to allow for rear sway bar tuningCustom Free-Flowing Exhaust System Stacked glass-pak mufflers reduce back pressure. engine runs cooler & delivers a pleasing note. especially with top downPirelli P600 Radial Tires Jaguar XJS's used Pirelli Tires as OEM for their performance. endurance. and stylingFront Brake Calipers & Pads New Dual-Piston Front Calipers. New Premium PadsNew Interior Ski Slope. nbsp;w/cup-holders (no ashtrays) Finally! Someone designed a replacement ski-slope with cup holders!Oil Change - Oil Filter - Lube (yes. this car has grease fittings)Marelli Distributor RotorAll new speakers in front doors and rear cabinet areaNew Halogen Fog Lamp bulbsNew Poly Steering-Rack Bushings Steering has zero slop. car tracks beautifully!Paint appears original. body is slick and smooth. There was a minor paint touchup done that will be hard to discover!New engine water pump. hoses. clamps. and belts The water pump bearing had a slight growl. And replacing belts and hoses just makes good sense!Now if a similar car you see on Ebay is advertised as "absolutely perfect". nbsp;" simply stunningly". or (my favorite) "These car's has (sic) tripled in book value in last year alone". well. you recognize salesman-speak when you hear it. --> See the end of this listing for more flowery comments that are truly red-flag alerts when you see them! <--While these vintage cars can be in 'really good' condition. at 20+ yrs old. they ALL have some issues. You will always be chasing some little thing on these cars. so if you're allergic to maintenence. nbsp;this car is "not" for you. Here's the very few deficiencies I've noted on this car. See pictures: Carpet in rear deck "where sun had shone through" was replaced. Slightly off color to floor carpet. Previous owner replaced original hood "Growler" medallion with a "Leaper" medallion (The "Leaper" was only used on sedans (aka Saloons) While this may not be a big deal. it will definately subtract points at a Concours judging event! (And even more painful. sometimes you'll see someone with a Growler AND a Leaper together on the same hood. Yikes!) Electric door locks are tempermental. Trunk however can be locked separately. Recommend never locking convertible doors anyway!Features:This is an ultra-smooth ride. Starts easily. fast idles when cold. RPM's drop to 800 when warm. No warning lights. bells. or whistles during or after normal start up. Car eagerly accelerates. nbsp;responding to your desire. Automatic shifts smooth. stops quickly. Exceptionally quiet body noise for a convertible - No clicks. pops. groans. thumps. etc. All interior courtesy lamps work when doors open. All exterior lamps are fully functional. Electric windows and electric top works perfectly. Trip computer face is flawless (most this age are heat-fogged). Rear window defogger (wires on glass) works fine. OEM Cruise Control engages and holds perfect speed. OEM AM/FM/Stereo Radio with Cassette is profesionally rebuilt. Rear deck (trunk) lid is flawless. (Many in this era are rusted along outer bottom edge)Newer battery in trunk. plus small trickle charger permanently mounted. (Prev owner didn't drive it much!)Includes original Jaguar tool kit in trunk pouchIncludes all owners' manualsIncludes brand-new. never used spare tire on mag rim(Rim is a Mag. identical to mounted tires)Includes canvas OEM parade cover. aka "Boot"(covers the retracted convertible top)Includes several repair manuals on CDDid I mention this car only has 29k miles? This car is a head turner and will be your pride and other's envy. Can you tell I'm a little bit of a fanatic about how I maintain my Jaguars?Truthfully. I'd like to sell this to anyone wanting an exceptional. reliable. exotic automobile. But I'd REALLY like to sell it to someone that has previously owned an XJS so they can realize just how much better one can be with the right knowledge and TLC!The NADA Guide "Average" Retail on this beauty is $15400.

I promised you some more "Dealer Speak". you know. the verbage that auto dealers invent when they don't know much about the vehicle they're selling. also known as "smoke". Soak in the often humorous. nbsp; mostly unverifyable statements that are used in other car advertisements. They are reprinted in their exact entirety. mispelling. twisted english and all. along with my comments. enjoy! These car's has tripled in book value in last year alone (Really? Which book?) Simply one of the best investments you could ever make (OK. forget real-estate. stocks. bonds. tulips. etc) these car's will sell for over 50k like this one in next ten years (So. I'll hold this car 10 years and you'll pay me $50k?) We know these as well as anyone and this car is right ready (What does "anyone" know about these cars. and what's "right ready". anyway?)

IF YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR ONE OF THESE XXXXX MODELS YOU MIGHT AS WELL STOP LOOKING NOW! (no problem. I'm going blind anyway from all the verbal glitter you're spreading!) THESE XJS MODELS ARE INCREASING IN VALUE DAILY! (Yep. Got it. See the 50k examples above!) YOU WILL LOOK FOR YEARS TO FIND ANOTHER ONE LIKE THIS!

(Not for any price? Bummer!) WHAT ARE YOU WAITING ON? (Waiting for my laughter to subside. reading all this drivel!) THEY JUST DO NOT COME ALONG EVERYDAY LIKE THIS. (Thankfully. Otherwise we'd buy them all!) IF YOU KNOW OF ONE AND YOU DON'T WANT IT. CALL ME! I WILL PAY YOU A FINDERS FEE. (If I know of one 'what'?) SIMPLY A DREAM CAR (Dream boat. or Nightmare?)

NO ISSUES THAT WE CAN FIND (Just how hard did you look? There's always "issues") NON FACTORY SOUND SYSTEM AM/FM RADIO. SOUNDS AMAZING. WE ALSO HAVE ORIGINAL RADIO IF YOU WOULD RATHER HaVE THAT (Gee. will the original radio work. and still fit into the hacked up dash and hook up to the savaged wiring?) LOOKS SIMPLY AMAZING!!

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY EXCEPT COME SEE FOR YOURSELF (Momma taught you not to lie. obviously!) YOU WON'T GO HOME WITHOUT IT. (Define "it".

A true pleasure to drive. this car will bring a smile to your face. (Yeah. until a few miles down the road. then a call from your phone. to AAA!) Look at the photos below. They tell the story. (Photos can't create the smoke your verbage can. oh wait. isn't that smoke coming from under the hood?) Don't wait on this! It's one of a kind and stunning. (Yeah. had a girlfriend like that. Once. Still one of a kind. Not so stunning!) This is the right color combination! (The right combination for what? Halloween? Christmas?) Come and see for yourself this will be the classic to have in years to come. (How many years until it becomes. "the classic"?) OK. gentle Readers.
