If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
1990 Jaguar XJS Coupe 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. In September of 1989 after the Ford Motor Company purchase, a change came to the XJS and it was made to a special 5.3 liter, (323cu), V12 engine with Zytek fuel injection and engine management system. This enabled the car to have a top speed of 158 mph. Our consignor and efficiency experts here at the Mall, also cannot get this car to start...(could be an electronic fuel injection issue?). Otherwise decent white pearl paint with a few faults, and leather interior. Exterior White pearl paint showing some blemishes, particularly on the passengers side B pillar is a crack in the paint, otherwise presented in fair condition. Chrome and badging is in fair condition, showing some blemishes of early rust on the bumpers. The rear glass is almost vertical and Jaguar designers added on some flying buttress B pillars to smooth the transition from the roofline to the trunkline. On the back, the rear taillights are on each corner, with the passenger light broken. Interior Gray leather seats show some wear, mostly on the drivers side which has some folding of the leather and an area on the drivers door side bolster on the back that has a tear and shows the interior foam. Carpeting is in fair condition with some staining and fading of the light steel blue gray. All dash panel veneer is showing in fair condition, and in the center console just below the radio is some cracked areas that have become unglued possible from water damage. This also exists behind the shifter. A Jaguar radio cassette player is a bit rough with plenty of wear. In the back the rear bench 2 plus 2 buckets with smooth center shows somewhat dirty but no cracks or tears. Sadly, the door panels are non-existent, and will need to be replaced. Drivetrain The 323ci V12 engine with fuel injection, delivers very smooth power. Some slight corrosion on aluminum parts is seen, but otherwise the engine is clean. A TH400 3 speed automatic transmission drive the rear wheels that are attached to a 2.88 gear rear axle. Undercarriage Rear independent suspension, and front independent suspension, power disc brakes all around , and dual exhaust round out the package, which appears in used but solid condition underneath, with no rust on floor pan, or rockers, just faded patina metal aero ground effects smooth panels. With this car currently not able to start, we give you an As Is version of the 1990 V12 sedan with hardtop. Some work will be necessary to get back to the road, but when you do it youll be the proud owner of a Jag V12!
