 Vehicle Description
1989 Jaguar XJS Convertible. Seventeen years ago I sought to purchase the most Pristine condition low mileage and reasonably priced 1989 Jaguar XJS Convertible example that could possibly be locate from Southern California.- I then purchased this stunning 1989 first year offered Factory Jaguar XJS Convertible as her second owner back in 2002.- Prior to ownership this car had spent her entire life in Southern California.- Under my ownership the car had been stored during Winter Seasons in a friends purpose-built Climate-Controlled Vehicle Storage facility.- Absolutely Rust-Free paint - does not have age related issues.- Looks just like a 'Show Car' as well and has been such pride and joy to own too...!- This vehicle has never been driven in the Winter.- Under the current ownership it has never been driven in the rain and has always been Garage kept since.- The degree of care that this 'XJS' model has received is certainly evident.- Both the Paint job and Body work are incredible as well!. There are absolutely no scratches or dents whatsoever - read that statement again.- There are not even car wash spider micro scratches as she had only been hand washed.- It is like a s'Show Car' level of polish.- In the pictures you can appreciate the polish and see the clouds reflecting off the hood.. As seen in pictures the Chrome and Rubber are all fantastic.- This car is still sporting fresh Wax applied just before the Winter hibernation.- In summary there are no Body defects and this 'Beauty' has high polish Glossy paint.. Replaced the Convertible Top and seals installed new radiator with dual electric fans new water pump replaced fuel injection lines and aharness new air conditioning 17 inch cheom wheels with four new matching tires. This XJS is fully sorted out and reliable to drive. .- The front Spoiler is perfect without presence of any cracking or road rash.- The Fog lamps had been replaced with the original brand new old Stock Fog lamps - they are hard to obtain fully original without any cracks no the lenses.- The Power Windows go Up-and-Down with authority.- The Parade cover is original and included - it presents as new.. A couple of years ago upgraded the original 15-inch Wheels and Tires in favor of 17-inch Wheels and Tires for a modernized more Muscular stance.- The Chrome Jaguar brand Revolver wheels look awesome as can be seen in the pictures.- All Tires have full tread with perhaps 300 miles on them.. The Air Conditioning system had recently been upgraded with a brand new Compressor and other Components for a conversion to modern - R134A Freon gas - blows ice cold.- Oil changed regularly with Mobile 1.- This 'Kitty' runs smooth and shifts like she should.- Take note of the condition of the interior with awesome looking Custom Burl Walnut Steering wheel.- As seen in pictures the leather looks terrific.. The Carpeting is spotless and the Jaguar Floor mats with Logo are included.- The only interior flaw is very minor wear to the Driver's side Seat Bolster - it is not torn like you see in other 'XJS' cars of its vintage.- This is a usual ware point for the seating for these cars.- Just the same the wear is far less than usual for this year and mileage - otherwise the leather is perfect as seen in the pictures!- This car is spotless inside.. The Electronics all work except for the Cruise Control - never considered fixing it as this Sport-Luxury car is a such a pleasure to drive.- This 'XJS' model is fully 'Road-Worthy' as well.- Would feel comfortable driving her any distance.. Beware that these cars are known to be prone to Overheating issues Engine fires and Oil leaks.- Also beware of cars for sale that have not had such issues eliminated by proactive maintenance.- You can be confident in this car and as a result of meticulous maintenance and very proactive mindful correction of known possible trouble areas of this model this Jaguar is fully sorted out and has been trouble-free!- None of the trouble foibles present any worry as a brand new upgraded Be Cool Radiator installed and eliminated the crappy Mechanical fan in favor of two (2) independently-controlled Electric fans!.- This car is properly cooled.- One fan is controlled by the usual Thermostat and the other by a Computer and Sensor.- Another issue with these cars is that with both Time and Mileage the Fuel lines feeding the Fuel Injectors do get brittle given that the heat V12 models do generate under hood.- If the Fuel lines providing Gas to the Fuel Injectors have not been replaced then these cars can suffer serious Engine fires due to cracks in the Fuel Injection lines.- This is not a worry with this particular car - the Fuel lines have been replaced and remain supple to a Pinch test.- The same heat conditions are troublesome to give cause to Oil leaks.- The problem is certain seals - suffer from rubber perishing over time.- This car has had each issue sorted out and Oil leaking is not an issue.- Ask other sellers about these issues and see if they get uncomfortable discussing or acting like there is nothing concerning.. Has always been a personal 'Pride-and-Joy' to drive and has been a hobby and fair-weather vehicle to enjoy for years to come.- Ready to drive and enjoy.- The only issue that can be pointed out is that she is due for brand new Mufflers in the near future..
