This 1996 Jaguar XJS is finished in white over beige leather and powered by a 4.0-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Equipment includes a beige convertible top, 16″ wheels, power-adjustable seats, air conditioning, and a cassette stereo. The car was recently acquired by the seller from his stepfather, who purchased it in 1998 and kept it in both Florida and New York. Service performed since 2015 is said to have included servicing the brakes and air conditioning as well as replacing the shocks, suspension bushings, timing chain tensioner, valve cover gaskets, fuel pump, and spark plugs. Service reportedly performed in preparation for the sale included changing the engine oil as well as flushing the brake fluid and coolant. This XJS is offered at no reserve with service records, manufacturer’s literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.
The car is finished in white and is equipped with a beige retractable soft top with a heated glass window and a matching top boot. Exterior features include chrome bumper moldings, side mirrors, and dual-exhaust outlets. The seller notes paint chips underneath the front bumper.
Factory 16″ alloy wheels were mounted with BFGoodrich Touring T/A tires in 2018 according to the seller. A brake fluid flush was performed under current ownership and reported service since 2015 has included servicing the braking system as well as installing replacement shocks and suspension bushings.
The cabin features seats upholstered in beige leather with white piping, matching door panels and carpets, and wood trim on the steering wheel, dashboard, and doors. Equipment includes power-adjustable front seats, air conditioning, a stock cassette stereo, a trunk-mounted CD changer, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. Wear is noted on the driver’s seat bolster, and a tear is visible on the driver-side floor mat.
The wood-trimmed steering wheel frames a tachometer, a 160-mph speedometer, and gauges for voltage, fuel level, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The six-digit mechanical odometer shows 92k miles, approximately 1,500 of which were added by the seller.
The 4.0-liter AJ6 inline-six was factory rated at 245 horsepower and 289 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. The oil was changed and the coolant was flushed in preparation for the sale, while work conducted over the last 3k miles is said to have included replacing the crankshaft position sensor, timing chain tensioner, valve cover gasket, fuel pump, and spark plugs.
