Classic Car Overview

1986 Jaguar XJSC Convertible The Jaguar car is world famous for its stylish designs, thrilling performance, luxurious and comfortable interiors, outstanding handling and ride, quality engineering, and state-of-the-art technology. No other automobile manufacturer has been as remarkably successful at creating both the worlds finest luxury sedans, as well as some of the worlds most beloved sports cars. The founder of Jaguar Cars Ltd. was Sir William Lyons. His goal was to create world class sports sedans with grace, space, and pace. Lyons once said, The car is the closest thing we will ever create to something that is alive. For consignment a V12 convertible sports luxury showing up as a Jaguar XJSC from 1986. This was to be the follow up of Sir William Lyons XKE sports car, but have it be the ultimate tourer. It was very successful, having a 21 year run, and this particular car has had only 2 owners who babied the car, never driving it in bad weather, and careful documented maintenance. A $30,000 refresh has just been completed. Read onward for all the goods on this Jag. Exterior Like its predecessor the XKE it utilizes thin body styling, keeping a low profile throughout, and even looking at this car from the front on 3/4 view you can see shades of the rounded XKE rear quarter. Long bonnet starting with dual headlights flanking a thin inward raking grille and ending on the bumper with inset signal lighting and black crash bumper inserts into a chrome topper. All sheet metal is bathed in Regent Gray, put on as a respray only after an extensive stripping of the previous coat. No bodywork or rust remediation was performed at this time because there was no rust! This combination of straight steel, and beautiful paint as well as other attributes to come, gave this car a 9.988/10 in a regional JCNA concours event in the driven Class. Due to its XJSC moniker, it has a combined targa/convertible top that moves easily up and down, retaining a B pillar roll bar right behind the passengers that the operator can remove 2 roof panels for a sunroof effect, and stow them in the trunk. Or go full top down for the true wind in the hair effect. Interior Walnut and leather mix to form the luxurious interior. Gray door panels make use of the leather, along with gray carpeting, and a small strip of the walnut lacquered to a spit shine. Leather buckets with power controls all in fine condition make up the seats. These are sitting on either side of a center console in gray leather with a black inset shifter window controls and cruise control along with dueling ash receptacles with corned lids. For the dash walnut in true lacquered form is the dash front and above is padded by black vinyl. All knobs, levers and the sound system are inset into the walnut. A black instrument cluster is in the growler badged leather wrapped steering wheel. Gray Wilton carpeting in pristine condition floods the floors and is also in back in lieu of the rear seat, which is carpeted storage and receives the downed top. Drivetrain Under the long bonnet, is revealed the V12 power plant and it is a work of art. Fuel injected 5.3 liters of High Efficiency running. This 295hp aluminum V12 produces incredible low end torque. Its 60-degree offset, and 30-degree firing rotation cause the driver to make sure after turning the key the engine is actually running! The block has a 7 bearing double honed hardened cast iron crankshaft, steel cylinder sleeves chain driven cams, and pushes power to a GM TH400 automatic transmission. A recent thorough mechanical recon has been performed by K&T Vintage Restoration, Allentown, Pennsylvania. The log and invoices are provided for the new owner. Undercarriage With all structurally sound undercarriage panels, rockers and fittings this shows no road dirt and slight patina with age. New brakes have been put on in the recent servicing and are power disc brakes which present on all 4 corners. Independent coil spring suspension is also on all 4 corners. Drive-Ability This car fired right up, and ran beautifully, with the as described idle that you really have to check to see if it is indeed running. All functions were awesome, and recent additional ignition system and a multitude of electrical upgrades, as well as the A/C being converted to the R134 refrigerant the A/C blows cold. Essentially a car in the condition as close to when it left the factory as one can get. Interior is all original save for the targa panels inserts. Paint is gorgeous and the engine bay is truly tightly buttoned up. Lovely mate! You can drive the bloody thing like you stole it, and an even bigger grin will appear. Spit Spot!
