1988 Jaguar XJS XJ-SC/Cabriolet

This 1988 XJ-SC was built in August 1987 and is one of only about 5. 00 of this model built from 1985-1988. There are only about 1. 00 documented as still on the road. I have extensively modified it to include a 4 speed automatic overdrive custom racing transmission in place of the GM T300 3 speed that generally comes with them. expanded air intakes and exhaust. custom wheels and low profile Z-rated tires. all black plastic in the cab replaced with wood. custom steering wheel. a remote controlled digital tuner with CD and subwoofer. dyed carpets and leather so the entire cab is black and blue (no tan roof liner from the window line up like factory standard). lots of computer adjustments. and more. I've got about $30. 00 in it and on last track check it did 0-60 in under 7 seconds. which is phenomenal for this model. It's a great hybrid of classic style and modern performance. The body is in excellent shape with one treated rust bubble area about the size of a silver dollar behind the front driver's wheel well. It hasn't even cracked the paint and has not expanded in the 13 years I've had the car. It was treated from the inside properly. The convertible top is a combination targa top and detachable rear 1/4 hard top (pictured in most of the images). and the removable hard top can be swapped out for a canvas rag top. which I have and will come with the car (pictured in the last image before I modified the car). The engine is the original V-12 with a Lucas ignition system. which I have maintained methodically. The ignition system is insulated now so there is no problem with bad wiring from the heat of the V as you might read about as common with this system. I find it a much better system than the alternative Marelli ignition introduced the following year (which can cause engine fires). when it's properly cared for. I have a big book of just about any repair you could make to the car that will come with it. Please read the condition statement for known issues. Please also know that due to the very low clearance. this will need to be moved on a flatbed. It can't be towed/delivered by just any option. I'm a certified Jaguar Concourse judge and have rebuilt three Jaguars. This one is my baby and I never considered making her a turn-over. but I am moving out of state and unable to take her with me. I hope you can give her a good home! Obviously it's priced to sell. and the sooner the better before my heart breaks and I change my mind. :) I'm moving this week. so if it does not sell in this auction. I'm unlikely to relist it. I will probably have to garage it at which point I won't bother trying to sell it again. This is the only shot!On Apr-30-15 at 15:10:24 PDT. seller added the following information: **** PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF 4/30 THE IDLE/TPS ISSUE HAS BEEN FIXED. SHE'S RUNNING SMOOTHLY. eBay will not let me modify the description so I am adding this note.
