Car is a signal red with cream leather interior 1991 pre face lift XJS (one of the last with the classic look. one of the most desirable models).  Mechanically this car is about as good as they get. and is a real pleasure to drive especially with the roof down in summer.
Car comes fully loaded.  Air con. climate control. ABS. cruise control. trip computer. elec mirrors. heated seats. heated mirrors. electric lumber support. elec windows. front fog lights etc

I have spent over £9000 in the past two years putting this car in excellent mechanical condition. this includes an engine strip last month (see picture).  You will not find another XJS on the market with this amount of work carried out to it. all work undertaken by one of the best Jaguar specialists in the country.  This has included
- New rear shocks
- Almost all of the front & rear suspension bushes - means the car drives like new (rear radius arm. wishbone bushes. rollbar bushes etc)
- New hood- Fuel tank reconditioned/resealed (this will be the only XJS you'll see where the boot doesn't smell of petrol. )
- New Steering rack
- New Steering bushes (XJRS poly bushes. more durable and better road feel)- Respray of rear wings & boot
- All round discs & pads
- all 12 spark plugs replaced (05/2013)
- new jackshaft (05/2013)
- new water pump (05/2013)
- new distributor (05/2013)
- new timing chain & tensioner (05/2013)
- all new drive belts (e. g. fan. alternator etc - 4 in total) (05/2013)
- new inlet manifold gaskets (05/2013)
- new fuel pump (05/2013)
- New gearbox mounting bush & spring (01/2013)
- New handbrake (pads & mechanism)
- New trackrod ends
- Air conditioning serviced & regassed
- Rear offside hub bearings replaced
- New ABS wire rear nearside wheel
- 4x new Falken ZE 912 tyres (as recommended by KWE)
- new battery
- New bonnet struts
- New coolant hoses & coolent
- Serviced by Jaguar specialist @67. 00 miles. but has had work equivalent to a service 05/2013 and an oil change 10/2012- Waxoyled

Car has been kept garaged most of the time I've had it.

Also included in the sale is a cover (cost £200). door solonoid (£50). a spare bumper chrome (£50) and the original stereo.

The car does have minor surface rust in the usual places(the underlying bodywork is fine. it's just the paintwork that needs attention (I've stripped a small area back and primed it to protect the metal)). bottom of the front wings. front quarter panels (below the front bumper) and some very minor rust on the wheel arches - all is nothing urgent. critical or apparent - the car looks great and has been shown at classic car shows. The vast majority of the bodywork and the important. expensive bits (inc all structural parts) are totally solid & rust free.  The interior is good. with no leather rips and the wood is in good condition. but the door cards could do with a new backing.  I've concentrated on getting the mechanical bits right as you can see above. which you can really tell when you drive the car.
I'm an XJS enthusiast with a genuine reason for sale. and I'd quite like to see her go to a good home as I've put a lot of care and effort into this car.  I'm being totally straight forward & honest in the description. feel free to come and see the car (I live in central London next to Pimlico tube) or call Paul on 07970 270151.
Payment is a £200 non refundable deposit by paypal. and the rest is cash on collection.  The car is advertised elsewhere. so I reserve the offer to withdraw.  
The reserve is realistic. and is cheaper than 90% of the other XJS's on ebay.
