Description:

1983 Jaguar Custom XJS

THIS WAS A GROUND UP BUILD WHICH TOOK 18 MONTHS. EVERY MOVING PART HAS BEEN REPLACED WHEN BUILT.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME OUT OF THE GARAGE IN EIGHT MONTHS AND I APOLOGIZE FOR THE DUST ON IT. THE PAINT IS FLAWLESS, LIKE DAY ONE!

THERE IS TOO MUCH TO SAY ABOUT THIS CAR SO I WILL TELL YOU JUST THE BASICS. IT IS THE ONLY ONE, BUILT FOR ME 20 YEARS AGO. I PUT EVERY MILE ON IT, 52,200 MILES. IT STAYS PARKED FOR YEARS AT A TIM, I AM GETTING OLDER AND HAVE DECIDED TO SELL IT. IT WAS ON THE COVER OF “JAGUAR MAGAZINE” THAT GOES ALL OVER THE WORLD. IT RUN, FEELS, SHIFTS AND DRIVES LIKE BRAND NEW. EVERYTHING WORKS EXCEPT THE CRUISE CONTROL WHICH NEEDS SOME LOVING.

1: NEW WHEN BUILT G.M. ZZ4 V8 ENGINE ( THAT WAS THE BEST OF THE 350’S ROLLED INTO ONE) WITH ROLLER ROCKERS, ROLLER CAM, MILLED ALUMINUM HEAD, TUNED PORT INJECTION, SHAVED AND POWDER COATED RAM HORNS AND HIGH PERFORMANCE CHIP. TRANSMISSION IS A TURBO 400 BUILT BY DAVE’S AUTOMATIC RACEING TRANSMISSIONS AND IT HAS A 2500 RPM STALL CONVERTER. IT ALSO HAS INBOARD REAR DISK BRAKES AND FOUR REAR COIL SPRINGS AND SHOCKS.THE REAR SUB FRAME HAS BEEN REINFORCED SO AS NOT TO BREAK IF YOU SHOULD DO A “POWER START AND MAKE SOME TIRE SMOKE,” HAS BOLA STAINLESS 3 INCH EXHAUST WITH FOUR MUFFLERS. AIR CONDITIONER STILL BLOWS ICE COLD.

2: BODY IS TOTAL CUSTOM, SHAVED BUMPERS, STEEL ROLL PANS FRONT AND REAR, MODIFIED SIDE BODY LINES, TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM A STOCK CAR, CUSTOM BUILT DECK LID, XENON HEAD LAMPS AND HIGH BEAM RUNNING LAMPS AND CUSTOM MADE GRILLES.

3: PAINT IS BMW PEARL BLACK, WITH PEARL GREY ACCENTS ON SIDES AND HOOD. PAINT IS GLASSURIT AND IS 20 YEARS OLD, THE WORLD’S BEST. IT IS STILL LIKE DAY ONE!

4: INTERIOR IS TOTAL CUSTOM MADE RIGHT DOWN TO THE EMBROIDED HEAD RESTS AND EMBROIDED FLOOR MATS. HAS SIX WAY DRIVERS SEAT ( NOT AVAILABLE IN 1983), CUSTOM BUCKET SEATS IN REAL TWO TONE LEATHER. NO BACK SEAT, STEREO EQUIPMENT ONLY, KIND OF FEELS LIKE A TWO SEATER.

5: WON “BEST IN SHOW” AT DALLAS AUTORAMA AND AT THE END OF THE SHOW “BEST OF ALL IMPORTS” HAS WON SEVERAL BEST IN SHOW TROPHIES OVER THE YEARS.

6: I WAS TOLD BY AN EXPERT ON BARRETT JACKSON THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THIS CAR TO BRING $100k IF I COULD EVER GET IT TO GO IN THEIR AUCTION.

7: THE ENTIRE ENGINE COMPARTMENT IS CUSTOM BUILT WITH COVERS AND FAIRING THAT JUST ALLOWS THE MOTOR TO SHOW, NO WIRES, RELAYS, INNER WHEEL WELLS, ETC.

I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE THIS CAR GO TO SOMEONE THAT WILL KEEP IT LIKE I HAVE FOR THE NEXT 20 YEARS. IT HAS NEVER BEEN IN THE RAIN. I GOT CAUGHT IN A RAIN STORM IN DALLAS YEARS AGO AND HAD IT CARRIED HOME ON A FLAT BED. THIS CAR TURNS EVERYONE’S HEAD!
