|1986||Jaguar||XJS C 3.6||71,000 (Not Warranted)||£7150.00 + buyers premium|
This cherished big cat has been part of the vendor’s family since 2004 and has been regularly maintained by an independent specialist in Hertfordshire known locally has Sam Jaguar who worked for Jaguar racing and is currently in a similar role for McLaren. The current speedometer reading is 71,000 however the vendor understands that the speedo was changed prior to his late father’s ownership and the true mileage is circa 100,000.
Auctioneers Notes: This is a super example of a Targa Top XJSC and if you have read the vendor’s notes where he states that she would be a sound restoration project, I think he is being a little harsh and I think that anybody who sees her will agree with me – she is in near tip top condition. This Jaguar was built before the Ford Motor Company took over the marque and being a 3.6 she is very good on fuel, 25 – 30 plus MPG is possible. The 3.6 litre is high spec having DOHC and 4 valves per cylinder produces a healthy grunt of over 220 HP and I like the 5-speed Getrag 265 gear box. The history file, since the vendor’s late father bought her in 2004 is excellent and very well presented. I feel this car is FANTASTIC value for money. She is on site and may be viewed by appointment.
