1992 Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible
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
1992 Jaguar XJS Roadster
2 Owner car in the same family for the last 25 years. This car was purchased from a local specialty Jaguar dealer, who had purchased the car from the original owner. It had roughly 20K miles on it when they bought the car, it now has about 66,660 miles, averaging less than 2000 miles a year. The car has been owned by a car family and has been very well taken care of. Although not really concours quality, it does show very well, with only some minor paint flaws and I'd say the car is a solid #2 car, with the expected small issues that a car with 60+ thousand miles would have. Some very minor interior wear, a couple of hairline cracks in the wood veneer and the aforementioned paint flaws (a few small chips and light scratches here or there).
The car wears it's original Jet Black - PDH paint and Magnolia - AEM leather interior. As a Jaguar it is loaded with many luxury appointments as standard - Power steering, power brakes, AC (blows colder than outside air but I feel it may need either a charge or a little more attention), heated leather seats, power seats with memory and lumbar air cushion -both seats- Power top, trip computer, intermittent wipers, cruise control, tilt wheel, power windows, power mirrors, fog lights front and rear, ABS 4 wheel disc brakes, Kenwood Bluetooth stereo (the original unit will come with the car but is currently not functioning correctly). This car also has the 2+2 option with seating for two behind the two front seats...Not sure what humans would fit in those seats though.
The 5.3 Liter HE V12, which puts out about 260 HP and 290 lb ft of torque, has been well cared for and runs and drives beautifully. The power is transmitted to the rear wheels by a Borg-Warner 3 speed auto transmission through the standard Jaguar IRS differential. The brakes stop the car very nicely without any pulling. The Dunlop SP Sport tires, in 235/60/R15 sizes F&R, and the anti-roll bars give this car a bit more sportier feel for what is generally considered a Grand Tourer, she really holds the road and handles great. All the lights, power top and windows work as they should.
The body is rust free and the under-body/suspension bits have what would be considered average surface rust and no rot.
Overall, this a super solid running & driving car that can hold it's own in an enthusiast division car show and definitely holds it's own on the road.
She is ready to hop in, power up, top down and enjoy!
The price to take this wonderful Cat home is $21,500.
