1985 Jaguar XJS Custom
1985 Custom Jaguar XJS V12 Coupe
This is a trophy winning, very good condition, always garaged, great looking, one of a kind XJS. No dents, no scratches, no rust. Only a very few, very small chips from driving. It's lowered, has a stronger suspension than a stock XJS and drives very well (doesn't like some of the really bumpy California roads though).
The car's dash says 176,000 miles, but it's really only 50,000 miles as that's when all the work on it started.
It's mechanical and body work was done by top, very skilled, very knowledgeable workers. Almost all of the mechanical part of the car, most of it is stock, has been rebuilt or replaced with new parts. It's always been taken care of when needed.
I have all the receipts for the work done on the car since the day I got it twenty three years ago. They're all in a 230 page binder that will be yours when you buy the car.
The last Photo has a list of the custom things that were done and some of the shows that it was in.
Here's a very small list of things that were done on the car (Miles are just approximant, not exactly:
50,000 miles ago: A 1988 V12 engine was completely rebuilt (except the fuel injection part) with new parts
50,000 miles ago: Installed new front & back XJSR springs
48,000 miles ago: New, upgraded steering rack was installed
39,000 miles ago: New front brakes and rotors were installed
34,000 miles ago: New fuel injectors, gaskets & seals were installed
30,000 miles ago: New AC compressor was installed
20,000 miles ago: New front & back shocks were installed
18,000 miles ago: Rebuilt transmission was done
11,000 miles ago: New exhaust system was installed
10,000 miles ago: New alternator was installed
2,000 miles ago: Rewired the dash instruments
There was a lot more work done in the last 50,000 miles and lot's of dollars (over $80,000) paid. You will be able to see it all in the receipt book.
The question "Why am I selling the car?" has been asked. The reason is I'm moving to Kauai, Hawaii and that's not a good place for the car. I won't be able to keep it inside and it would get rusty rather quick if it was outside as we'll be close to the ocean. The last thing I want is seeing the car die. I'll miss it, but I'll be happy if someone buys it and takes good care of it.On Oct-28-17 at 14:27:37 PDT, seller added the following information:
I got a question about the Jag having windshield wipers. It doesn't have any. It's quite easy to put them back on if you have a motor. I don't have a motor, but you probably could get a used one at places like Welsh Enterprises Jaguar Parts. They may even have a new one.
