1996 Jaguar XJS Convertible – Merriam, KS

1996 Jaguar XJS convertible with 40,000 original miles.  Probably the most striking color combination of dark blue with cream interior this appears to be a very clean example.   Pictures show the exterior and interior to be mint.  Over 20-years later, the XJS continues to ooze the style and class of English design.  The last year of the XJS, 115,413 were manufactured over the 21-year production life. Less than 31,000 of those were convertibles.  The car appears to have a 4.0L V6.  While not as sporty as its E-type predecessor, the XJS was a competent tourer.  This example is being offered for $15,000.

Ford’s ownership in 1992 introduced what was considered the more reliable V6.  The V12 was prone to overheating and could be expensive if routine performance was not taken care of.  Between 1992-1996, 12,423 convertibles and 4,289 coupes were made with the V6.  Finding a clean example with good maintenance records is critical.  Everything in these pictures indicate this example is worth a look.  Check out the ad on Craigslist for seller contact information.
