This superbly presented Jaguar XJS has covered 77000 miles from new and has arrived with us in exceptional condition. The car had been owned by one of our regular customers in Scotland for six years and 6000 faultless miles were covered over this time. The XJS had been garaged, not used over winter months and kept with a beautiful collection of classic cars. Last year the XJS came to us in part exchange for a Jaguar E-Type and we sold the car to one of our long term customer on the Isle of Man. Since last year the XJS has covered a further 1000 miles.
This XJS was supplied new by Henlys (London) Ltd and the car comes with all its original handbooks, leather wallet and even the original Jaguar Daimler Total Care paperwork still inside its Coventry post stamped Jaguar envelope. The Jaguar comes with an excellent service record containing fifteen service stamps. The supplying dealer Henlys carried out the first two services, a Kent based main dealership carried out the third and then Stratstone Jaguar in London carried out the next four before Grange Jaguar in Essex took over servicing for two intervals. The remaining service records are with Jaguar specialists and the most recent being with our garage services department, Malton Coachworks. The XJS comes with a comprehensive file of invoices for service work and maintenance and a file of MOT's from when the car was six years old with 41,000 miles. The condition of the car is quite superb with an excellent bodyshell with superb wheel arches and lower wings, typically prone areas on an XJS. The paintwork is of an excellent standard, so is the hood, chrome, wheels, boot and highly detailed, polished engine bay. The interior has nicely aged with lovely leather seats, rear seat conversion, lovely original carpets, door cards and dashbard.
Performance is outstanding as expected with an XJS. The 4.0 engine is smooth, powerful and deliveres excellent acceleration. Oil pressure is excellent, the car sounds as it left the factory and the automatic gearbox is superb smooth. The Jaguar has recently been treated to new brake pads and photos with the car show the stunning, clean detailed suspension and braking system. A recent full service has been carried out and the XJS was treated to new rear discs, pads and calipers, new hand brake pads, new rear lower trailing arms, a re-condition roof control module and various ignition items replaced. In total over £3,000 has been recently spent on the car. The power hood works correctly, all gauges and dials work and the car is as expected at just a few years old. The XJS is an appreciating car and this one offers excellent value.
