1990 Jaguar XJS Convertible, V12, 52k Miles, CA Car, Gorgeous!

Harry's Thoughts

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a gorgeous 52,000 mile all original and well maintained XJS Convertible (Roadster with no rear seat).  This is the nicest example we’ve seen.  It has never been in an accident, no rust and is beautifully maintained motorcar that needs nothing but a new custodian.

The XJS had all its original white paint and is complimented by navy leather interior and burl walnut trim. The cosmetics are excellent with minimal wear shown.  Most XJS’s are not V12’s and many have the rear seat configuration.  This is the V12 with the roadster configuration without the rear seat.

The car was sold new by Palm Beach Motor Cars, Ltd. on April 26, 1990 to Ms. Sally Siater of Jensen Beach, Florida. The MSRP was in excess of $57,000.  By 1992 it had accumulated 20,099 miles. The XJS was then bought by Roger Jenkins from Vista, California on September 10, 1992. He was Scottish and had retired as the City Engineer from the City of San Jose, California. His wife was a school teacher. Roger used the XJS to drive to and from Florida three times over the years; a testament to what a delightful highway car it is. The XJS was kept in a garage under a car cover and blankets for most of its life.

The XJS comes complete with a service history. In 2008 the engine and transmission were pulled and the transmission was rebuilt, a new radiator and fully inspected and serviced the engine. The records reflect the $9,000 cost for this work. It had accumulated a mere 49,000 miles. Today, there are no leaks or issues. Everything operates as it should and the car is ready to be enjoyed!

In the past year the XJS has benefitted from new Diamond Back whitewall radials, the air conditioning has been upgraded to the new R-134 freon and the engine and transmission are using Royal Purple lubrication. Again, everything operates as it should and there are no leaks, rattles, etc. It is fully serviced and ready to be enjoyed.

The motorcar is entirely rust and accident free. It has been upgraded with several cosmetic and convenience items. The center console now has cup holders and has a complementing wood shifter trim.

These motorcars must be driven to be appreciated. The venerable 5.3 liter high efficiency V-12 had been mated to a GM three-speed automatic transmission that created a smooth and powerful combination.

The Hagerty value guide as the XJS convertible in No. 2 condition as being worth $20,600.  See the details: http://www.hagerty.com/valuationtools/HVT/VehicleSearch/Report?vbe=30220

Rarely do you see a low mileage, rust free and fully documented XJS convertible. This is a gorgeous car that needs nothing. For more information please contact Harry at harry@classicpromenade.com or call us at +1.602.245.7200.

Interesting Fact: The Jaguar XJ is a series of high-performance vehicles manufactured by Jaguar in Britain, starting in 1968. Beginning then, the XJ became Jaguars flagship four-door model that is perfect for families.   This model was popular initially with the public, as the first generation sold 82,126 units in just five years. A 2.8-liter and 4.2-liter straight-six engine ensure strong performance in the XJ, and a special V12 variant was released beginning in 1972. Between 1975 and 1978, a special two-door variant was released, but problems with the vehicle itself stopped this specific model from becoming a norm.   Each generation of the XJ has received significant facelifts, but one of the most popular runs for the car was between 1968 and 1992, where 318,000 models were produced and sold. Jaguar is a renowned brand with a rich history that makes their vehicles sought after by car lovers from around the world!
