1988 Jaguar XJS COUPE

THANK YOU FOR VIEWINGMY BEAUTIFUL 1988 JAGUAR XJ-S COUPE 5.3 V-12

NO RESERVE AUCTION. HIGHEST BID WINS.

NEED ROOM IN GARAGE FOR CUSTOM CAR IM BUILDING HENCE REASON FOR SALE

GARAGE-KEPT WITH 89K ORIGINAL MILES. THE ULTIMATE BRITISH CHARIOT!OWNED BY A JAGUAR ENTHUSIAST.
THE XJS HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVORITE JAGUAR. THEY EXHIBIT A SLEEK &SEXY LOOK ABOUT THEM. SUBTLE & POWERFUL THRUST OF POWER WHEN NEEDED IN LUXURIOUS COMFORT.THE CONVERTIBLES ARE NICE, BUT NOT ALWAYS PRACTICAL. AND THE BUTTRESSES ON THE REAR OF THE COUPE GIVE IT THAT LOVELY EXOTIC LOOK. A CERTAIN CLASS AND CHARM THAT THE GERMAN CARS WILL NEVER POSSESS IN MY OPINION.




FACTORY ‘SILVER BIRCH METALLIC’ (LOOKS LIKE A CHAMPAGNE GOLD) ON TAN BARLEY INTERIOR.
STARTS RIGHT UP, DRIVES SMOOTH AND TIGHT. NO RATTLES, NO SHAKES, SUSPENSION FEELS GREAT. NO WARNING LIGHTS.
BRAKES PERFECT; THE REAR INBOARD AND FRONT WERE RE-DONE AT$$$$ EXPENSE APPROX 8K MILES AGO BY PREVIOUS OWNER.
TRANSMISSION SHIFTS CRISP AND PERFECT AS IT SHOULD.
ALL LIGHTS, TURN INDICATORS, REVERSE, BRAKE, FOG LAMPS ALL WORK AS THEY SHOULD.
WIPERS FUNCTION WELL.
THIS FLORIDA CAR HAS ABSOLUTELY NO RUST.
ALL GLASS LOOKS AS NEW.I BROUGHT IT TO A SHOP TO HAVE THEM PUT ON A LIFT SO THAT I CAN TAKE PICTURES FOR THIS LISTING.
UNDERCARRIAGE LOOKS BEAUTIFUL. EVEN THE ORIGINAL VIN ON REAR VALANCE UNDER CAR IS IN CLEAR VIEW.
I KNOW THE CONDITION OF A CAR ON THE INTERNET CAN BE AMBIGUOUS SO IN AN EFFORT TO BE AS THOROUGH AS POSSIBLE, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MORE THAN 100 PICTURES TO SEE IT FROM EVERY ANGLE AND DIFFERENT LIGHTING.THERE ARE NO SURPRISES WITH THIS JAG.ORIGINAL PAINT AMAZING!! ACTUALLY REALLY INCREDIBLY PERFECT FOR A 30 YEAR OLD CAR. I WAS ONLY ABLE TO FIND ONE SMALL BLEMISH. FACTORY PIN STRIPING PERFECT.
ORIGINAL INTERIOR BEAUTIFUL. SOME CRACKS TO 'SKI-SLOPE' NEAR SHIFTER. THIS SEEMS TO BE VERY COMMON ON THESE MODELS.THE INTERIOR HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN WELL CARED FOR. THE WOOL CARPET ISFREE FROM STAINS AND LOOKS AS NEW.HEADLINER APPEARS AS NEW & WAS REPLACED BY PREVIOUS OWNER AT SOME POINT IN TIME ACCORDING TO RECEIPT.
SEAT BELT PASSIVE RESTRAINT TRACKS WORKING AS THEY SHOULD.
RADIO MAY HAVE A FUSE BLOWN, IT DOES NOT TURN ON. I SUSPECT SOMETHING SIMPLE.
ALL RECIEPTS (AND THERE ARE A LOT) EACH IN THEIR OWN CLEAR PLASTIC LINER INSIDE IT'S OWN RECORD BOOK.
ORIGINAL STICKER PRICE, TOOL KIT, TOUCH UP PENS, MANUALS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT WOULD HAVE COME WITH IT IN 1988.
ORIGINAL RIMS APPEAR AS NEW. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF XJS' OVER THE YEARS BUT NEVER SEEN RIMS SO PERFECT.
NEWER TIRES.
FUEL HOSES FROM RAIL TO INJECTOR HAVE BEEN REPLACED WITH NEW.(IMPORTANT ON THESE CARS!)
ENGINE COMPARTMENT COULD USE A NICE DETAIL. EVERYTHING IN GOOD ORDER MECHANICALLY BUT COULD USE A NICE PAMPERING TO MATCH THE LEVEL OF CLEANLINESS OF THE EXTERIOR.HOOD STRUTS ARE GETTING TIRED AND HOLD HOOD UP FOR ONLY SHORT DURATION.

NO DENTS/SCRATCHES NO DAMAGE HISTORY.
HEAT HOT. AC COLD. JUST SERVICED.
IN CONCLUSION, A VERY WELL KEPTXJS I GOT FROM AN OLDER GENTLEMEN FROM THE LOCAL COMMUNITY THE 'VILLAGES' AND I HAD SERVICED EVERYTHING I COULD.
THE 88' AND 89' MODEL YEAR JAGS WERE IN MY OPINION THE BETTER YEARS FOR XJS. IT WAS PRE MARELLI. IT WAS DURING AN ACQUISITION PHASE WHEN FORD WAS IN PROCESS OF BUYING JAGUAR AND SO THE FACTORY HAD TO GET THEIR SHIT TOGETHER AND KEEP BUILD QUALITY AT AHIGHEST LEVEL IN PREPARATION OFCOMPANY TAKEOVER.THE 88' MODEL YEAR I LIKE EVEN MORE BECAUSE ITS PRE-ABS.
WENT THROUGH THE COOLING SYSTEM TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IN PEAK CONDITION;NEW THERMOSTATS(THE CORRECT JIGGLE PIN KIND)NEW FAN CLUTCHNEW ELECTRIC FANREFRESHED COOLANT20W50 OIL CHANGE


IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ON SERVICE HISTORY RECIEPTS PLEASE INQUIRE.

IN PICTURES IT WAS DISCOVERED THE RIGHT REAR MUFFLER WAS LOOSE OFF MOUNT. THIS WILL BE FIXED BEFORE AUCTION END.
