MOTODROME

please note: viewings strictly by prior appointment only

Motodrome are pleased to offer this superb-looking  1987/E  XJS 3. 6. this one fitted with the less numerous 5-speed manual transmission. finished in metallic blue  with oatmeal full leather and walnut trim.

 

This one sports the usual high XJS specification. and is well-shod on a matching set of the correct Pirelli P400 tyres on excellent pepperpot alloys. Also fitted with immobiliser and period Blaupunkt stereo with electric aerial.

 

Don't be put off by the odometer reading of 152000 miles – it's been very well looked after and has been in one family ownership since 2003 and it comes with a superb history. It's a testament to how nice these emerging classics can be at higher mileages if looked after properly. Last serviced May 2013 at 149000m. and all clutch hydraulics just replaced by us.

 

It comes with MOT until June 2014 and 6 months warranty on sale.

 

I've done just under 300 fast miles in it and it's been superb – it goes as well as it looks. .

 


Further detail:

The body and paintwork on this one look exceptionally smart overall. with  nice deep paint. and it's beautifully straight down the sides. It was repainted around 13 years ago apparently   Obviously expect stonechips. minor dinks and scratches etc commensurate with it's age and mileage  but overall it's really very good indeed  All I can really criticise is: a very slight (and almost un-noticeable) small depression (paint unbroken) to the back of the NSF wheelarch. a slight (touched-in) scuff on the NSR arch lip. and a 1cm scratch on the NSR wing. The bumper chromes are generally very good with just very minor blemishing. .      See the video below for a full appraisal of the bodywork

Interior – all as it should be. and in great shape with just a little scuffing to the drivers seat edge etc commensurate with the mileage. nice wood. carpets. headlining  etc. A really nice place to be. . Nothing to criticise.       See the video below for a full appraisal of the interior

 

 

Starts on the button and it performs superbly  - doesn't display any signs of misfiring.   hesitancy. overheating etc.  just a sublime driving experience. All I can  criticise is a) the gearchange is a little sloppy commensurate with the mileage. b) there's a very slight knock from one of the front shock mounts on bumpy roads. and c) the aircon compressor belt has been removed - the compressor still turns freely though.    . Watch the video below to see it in action
