The ultimate goal whilst seeking out a motor car is to find one
in original and unmolested condition. with low mileage and history
from purchase. a rare beast indeed. Well ladies and gentlemen. we
are proud to offer today this Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible with all
of these characteristics and with the further benefit of having
only one lady owner from new.

The Jaguar was purchased on the 5th May 1988 from the
Jaguar/Daimler dealers. Exeter Garages. Exeter. Devon. The original
purchase invoice states that the XJS was delivered in signal red
with charcoal trim and 12 months road fund licence which. with
delivery. number plates and tax. totalled £37. 15. After purchase
the Jaguar featured in a TV commercial for the Shell oil company in
which it played a starring role.

On inspection. the coachwork is. as one would expect straight. br/>clean and its signal red finish being excellent and complimented by
the Jaguar lattice alloy wheels. The original hood is exceptional
considering its age and operates easily both up and down with the
advantage of a hood bag to keep the top tidy whilst in the open
position. The interior matches the condition of the exterior in
that it is clean and tidy with no evidence of rips or tears. The
woodwork is very good with no signs of the finish cracking or
lifting that is common in most cases with this type of Jaguar. The
overall condition. no doubt. as a result of the Jaguar always being
garaged whilst not in use. Mechanically. the XJS is in very good
order; the V12 starts easily and soon settles into a smooth idle
with the gauges all working as they should and the electric windows
operating smoothly and easily. A comprehensive history file
includes invoices for works carried out by Jaguar specialists. all
the MoT test certificates from new (confirming mileage). the
original purchase invoice and various other items/letters. The book
pack includes a stamped service record and warranty booklet. sound
system handbook and an instruction manual. The Pièce de résistance
within the file is the rather wonderful and beautifully
photographed original sales brochure.

This glorious V12 Jaguar car ticks all the boxes. with that and a
with a truly tempting estimate. this must surely represent an ideal
opportunity for any enthusiast/collector.

Please note: The private registration plate pictured is to be
retained by the vendor. We are advised that an age related plate
has been assigned by DVLA and noted above.
