1987 Jaguar XJ-SC Cabriolet

one owner from new

Description

The Jaguar XJ-S (later the Jaguar XJS), a luxury grand tourer, was produced from 1975 to 1996. The XJ-S replaced the E-Type in September 1975, and was based on the XJ saloon. It had been developed as the XK-F, though it was very different in character from its predecessor. In 1983, a new 3.6-litre engine débuted – the Jaguar AJ6 straight-six (I6) engine – as well as a new cabriolet version, the XJ-SC. In the XJ-SC, the coupé’s rather small rear seats were eliminated making it only a 2-seat car. The XJ-SC was not a full convertible but had a non-removable centre targa-type structure and fixed cant rails above the doors. The rear quarter windows remained as well. The six-cylinder cars can be identified by a slightly raised “power bulge” — the longitudinal centre section of the bonnet. Between 1983 and 1987 the six-cylinder-engined cars were only available with a five-speed manual transmission (Getrag 265), with a four-speed automatic (ZF 4HP22) offered from 1987 onwards.

 

This beautiful one owner car has covered a mere 22,000 miles recorded, and presents very well in a stylish combination of Gunmetal grey with a light grey leather interior. The XJ-S model is rapidly coming out from the under the shadow of the E-Type, and what better a choice than a low mileage one owner example?
