Jaguar : XJS black for sale
Current customer rating: (65 votes) based on
1983 Jaguar XJS with a 1971 either Corvette or Camaro motor! I looked up the block numbers and was able to narrow it down to 1971. This thing runs great! Looks killer and is a pretty cool car for sure! It is however not without it's issues. I will list all the pluses and things I found that need attended to below.
Rebuilt 1971 chevrolet 350 motor that was installed in the car before I bought it. No abnormal noises. runs like a top and is either a Corvette or Camaro motor. It has vintage Corvette valve covers on it. with the T-bolt handles to bolt the valve covers down. The valve covers alone are super rare! Edelbrock intake manifold. performer series. Four barrel carb. either a Holly or an Edelbrock. I forgot to look. Intake is vintage style with the oil filler tube in the front going into the front of the intake.
Stock ram horn exhaust manifolds.
HEI electronic ignition.
Rebuilt transmission. Shifts fine with no issues.
I have no idea how many miles are on the rebuild or the conversion. What I do know is the motor has no abnormal noises. doesn't smoke. fires right up. and the transmission has no issues either.
This combo was installed using a "jag conversion" kit. It was all done right and the conversion poses no issues. It looks. runs. and handles like it's always been there!
75% tire tread left. Tires look practically new.
Rims are in good shape but could use re-chromed.
Paint is starting to show some paint bubbling in places. I took pictures close up to show examples and has some chipping right below the rear window on both sides. There is a rust through spot right behind the driver's seat along the ridge/edge. There is a picture below in the description section of this. Looks to have been repainted the factory color near as I can tell. Pretty sure the grill on these were not painted at the factory and there is over spray on the mufflers. Paint could use buffing out or a re-paint with body work to fix the bubbling. This is common on these older Jags. They are prone to it.
Rear suspension looks to be solid.
Rear brakes need attention. Needs new calipers. They are working but not anything like they should. The front brakes work but without the rear brakes working 100% it takes some leg power to haul it down.
Car could use a tune-up but runs great! Look at the video below also.
Seats need recovered. They have leather seat covers on them. Original leather in very poor condition. The laminate clear coat on the wood on the dash needs redone. Dash top has a crack. Car has an aftermarket sunroof installed with the pull across sun shields.
Speedo not hooked up. but the tach works fine. Gas gauge is not working. The "parking brake" light is on as the rear brakes need some work and there is one "dummy" light lit. I have searched around to see what could be "tripping" it.
Don't miss out on an opportunity to buy a killer sports car with a vintage hotrod motor! best of both worlds! Hard to let this one go believe me!

Low. Low reserve!
I will sell and ship anywhere in the world but shipping and transport is solely your responsibility. I require 24 hours notice of the arrival of truck or transport in order to be available for loading the vehicle. No notice and I cannot guarantee that I can be available as I have a busy life. However. if you call and give notice I will do everything in my power to make sure the car is loaded and on it's way.
