Condition & Features

This striking 1986 Jaguar XJS neatly cures all of the Jag’s shortcomings, most notably with a Chevy LT1 engine borrowed from a Corvette. It’s faster, more efficient, easier to service, and most importantly, more reliable. Add in the unusual early cabriolet bodywork and you have an all-seasons Jag that simply works like you’d expect. The long, sinuous lines of the XJS have aged gracefully and they’re still cars that look like they should cost thousands more than they do. Finished in silky black paint, this one looks like money on wheels, with a beautiful gloss that came directly from Coventry almost 30 years ago, a rather remarkable feat. Fit and finish were never a problem for Jaguar, and the cars certainly looked expensive going down the road, which was a big part of the appeal. And they were immensely tasteful, with just enough chrome to add contrast without being gaudy. The XJS’s most notable features, the “flying buttress” C-pillars, have been eliminated with the cabrio bodywork, but it still cuts a dashing profile that’s quite elegant. Details like the rubber bumpers are in good order without the chalky look that would suggest a car that spent a lot of time outside and the versatile top makes for a car that’s good year-round. The tan leather interior is understated and crafted from high-quality materials that have withstood the test of time. The leather seats have just the right amount of wear to look comfortable but not worn out, and everything from the wood to the carpets on the floors were the best materials money could buy in 1986. The gauges are large and easy to read and remarkably, fully functional with the engine swap, suggesting that someone really knew what they were doing. Heck, even the A/C blows cold thanks to modern GM hardware under the skin. The original shifter manages a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, which shouldn’t be a surprise since the original V12 was paired with a GM TH400 from day one. The top offers solid lift-off pane
