Lot No. 547 -
1988 Jaguar XJS V12 Convertible
Sold for: £19,980
Just 16,000 miles can you resist? An early UK production XJS V12 Convertible, presented in the unusual, but very pleasant colour combination of Satin Beige metallic with Magnolia Hide, this is a rare opportunity to enjoy a low mileage Jaguar convertible that has been recently recommissioned and is now starting to enjoy the classic status it always deserved.
A low mileage car from its early life onwards, the first owner kept it from new until 1998 when he sadly passed away and ownership transferred to his widow who then put it into professional long term storage. The mileage on 2 previous MOT certificates in the limited history file show that in 1996 it had covered 11,958 miles and when it went in to storage the last MOT in March '97 confirmed 14,214 recorded miles. Recovered from storage and finally sold on in June 2007, the vehicle was then briefly recommissioned by the new owner and an MoT from May 2007 confirms the mileage of 14,813 and an MoT from May 2008 the mileage of 15,036.
Then returned to long term storage and taken off the road again, the car finally changed hands for the third and final time in September 2014, when it was once again recommissioned and fully serviced with total expenditure in excess of £7,000. The car was then sent for MoT in March 2015 with a mileage of 15,163 and today the car has covered 16,000 miles.
