Car description

UPDATE: Several people have contact me suggesting that they have identified the car as a rare "Collection Rouge" model XJ-S, hich was a very limited production model. This car does seem to have the same equipment that that model is described as having. One kind gentleman notified me that he saw one just like this one at a the Jaguar headquarters in NJ back in the day. Here are his comments; You are correct about the Show Car. I first saw a Rouge XJS at Jaguar's NJ Headquarters and I had them bring it to that years local Jaguar Club Concour. Good Luck with your auction. You could also list it on the JCNA site..google Jaguar Clubs North America. StephenHere is your chance to own a truly unique and rare 1 owner V12 Jaguar XJS. This is a very special factory Jaguar show car. There are no others like it for sale on eBay, r online anywhere else. See for yourself.(*****I am hoping some of you Jaguar experts out there might be able to help with the rarity of the car, r provide any additional information on it. I have searched and searched online and have yet to find one like this one. I am a car guy, ut unfortunately Jaguars are outside of my area of expertise. If anyone has any additional information that would be helpful for me that I could post with this auction, t would be extremely appreciated!!)Up for your consideration is an original ONE OWNER Bright RedJaguar XJS V12 Collection Classic Coupe with only 36k original documented miles. You are purchasing this from the original owner and it comes with original dealership bill of sale and a 2 inch thick folder of misc. service records since new. Also comes with all original manuals, isc documentation, nd 2 sets of factory keys.Details:The car belongs to my Aunt, ho purchased it brand new from Ladd Hanford Jaguar in Lebanon PA on 12/23/1991. It has been her baby since new, owever, t is impractical for at this stage of her life, nd she has lost her storage spot for it. She has reluctantly agreed to part with it so I am trying to help her out.It appears that the car is a very special one. At the time of purchase they were told by the General Manager of the dealership, ob Lawson, hat this was one of only 8 like cars built by Jaguar, pecifically for the Jaguar show circuit. They were told this XJS was extremely rare and that this was the ONLYone of these cars that was sold east of the Mississippi. The other 7 remained and were sold on the west coast. They were told that this one differs from standard XJS's in that is has the following Jaguar factory modifications:- Factory Jaguar lower body ground effects package (I have not yet found one online with this same package, here seem to be none anywhere) - it is not a TWR package like some have suggested.- Red piping on the seats (I haven't found one with this either)- Dual exhaust splitters (surrounded in the body-painted rear fiberglass valance) - again, he only one like it I have found.- Hand-painted tan pinstripe (supposedly done by some famous artist for Jaguar, ut neither of them can remember the name of the person). No others seem to have this same pin stripe that I can find online. It is a very high quality job!There could also be some other differences, ut this is what they remembered. After some seriously exhaustive internet searching, would agree that it is definitely not a typical XJS and is unlike any others I can find.She has a ton of original documentation for the car, ut has not been able to locate the window sticker. The VIN for the car is SAJTW5849MC178771. It is extremely original right down to the Jaguar stereo and even the original dealership license plate surround is still intact. It is exceptionally clean and unmolested under the hood as well (what an engine! Very impressive!)The car is currently PA state inspected until the end of November.Options/Equipment that I know of include:- Power Steering- Power Brakes- 4 Wheel ABS brakes- Leather seats- Heated seats (driver does not hear, ife said she felt the passenger side heat up while out for a drive)- Power lumbar seats (work fine)- 4-way power mirrors (work fine)- Cruise control (I could not get it to work, ut may have been doing something wrong)- Climate control A/C (not blowing cold that I can see)- Original Jaguar AM/FM/Cassette security stereo (works fine)- Power door locks (work fine)- Power windows (work fine)- Power antenna (works fine)- Intermittent wipers (work fine, s does the windshield washer/mist system)- Rear defogger (haven't tested)- Fog lamps- Driver air bag- Tilt Wheel- Tinted glass- 4 Wheel Disc Brakes- Travel computer, ells distance, iles per gallon, nd several other features- OEM Jaguar chrome spoke rims- Jaguar burl-wood shift knob (Aunt Sally didn't like the one that came on it and had the dealer install this one, he original is also included though)Here is what I have found that it needs:The car has been driven very minimally over the past 10 years or so and has mainly sat in her garage. I drove it approximately 30 miles to my house a few weeks ago (I couldn't believe all the heads it was turning!). It starts and runs fine. Shifts smoothly. Brakes fine, tc. It does need an alignment as there is a pull to the right when driving. Also, he tires are aging and they are definitely needing balanced. I did notice a "clinking" sound in the front end when you hit a bump. It sounds like shocks to me, hey are probably originals. With only 36,000 miles and having been driven mainly on the highway & on paved roads, can't imagine it is anything serious. The only damage I've seen worth noting on the exterior is on the front fiberglass ground effects package in front of the passenger side front tire (see pics). My Aunt said she scuffed it on a curb awhile back. I also see a light a very light door ding on the passenger side door. Very light and could be removed by a paintless dent guy. Did not chip the paint and it was small enough that I could not get it to show up in a pic. It is light but wanted to note it. There is also one scratch worth noting right under the rear side window on the driver side (please see pics) Otherwise, he car is straight and I don't see any body damage, ents etc to speak of. The only thing the interior needs is the headliner fixed, t is drooping. The material is in good condition, am sure that it could be removed and reattached. Lastly, he struts that hold the hood up have lost their strength so will need replaced.The brakes were serviced about a year ago and the coolant system was flushed and a small metal tank replaced in August of this year. The tank was ordered through Jaguar and is located on the inside of the front fender. The battery was also new in August of this year.There is NO RUST on the car anywhere and the paint shines about like new. It is not faded anywhere, he chrome is all bright & shiny and in excellent condition. The black rubber on the bumpers is nice as well and not faded.The interior of the car is very close to mint throughout. It is 100% stock and original. Never been out and never modified in any way. You can see by the pics how nice the seats are. The back seat doesn't look like it's been sat in! There are a couple of dark spots on the driver seat as seen in the pics, believe they would come off but I wasn't sure what to use or try and I didn't want to take a chance on such expensive seats. The only other thing worth noting on the inside is that the burl wood on top of the console in the shifter area has some light hairline cracking from age - see pics. The ash trays in the car are unused and like new and the carpets are excellent. The original floor mats, hile not pictured, re included.The car was her baby and she took very good care of it and always had it serviced when it needed something. I have a file that is about 2 inches thick full of service receipts over the years.The car is located in Trout Run PA. You are more than welcome to view it by appointment. The car runs and drives and can be test driven, owever, would recommend having it transported to its new home. The tires (BF Goodrich Comp TA's), hile showing excellent tread are aged and I would not trust them. Plus, s noted prior, hey are in need of balancing and the car is pulling to the right. I am selling the car as-is, here is with no warranty expressed or implied. While I have described the car in detail to the very best of my ability, his is a 24 year old vehicle and I am sure there is a minor mark or little scratch that I have missed. It is a very nice car, ut I would encourage any potential buyers to come and see it in person so you can see it first hand, or yourself.As noted, he car needs a little work, ut nothing that appears major. It is a gorgeous vehicle and is ready for it's 2nd owner ever! Someone is going to get a very nice Jaguar that is pretty much like a time capsule!Clear title in hand and can be transferred any time!If you are serious about purchasing this car and would like to speak with the original owner on the phone to get more details and/or history on the car, lease contact me.One final note: I obviouslycannot personally make guarantees regarding the significance of the car, ther than what the original owners were told by the dealership when the car was purchased new back in 1991. It is very rare to have the benefit of the original owners available to speak with on a 24 year old car, hich is another reason that this car is special.I have been contacted by a couple of folks who have shared theories that this car has what is called a "TWR"kit on it, owever this does not seem to be the case as the TWR does not have the black horizontal rubber bumpers. Those also have a wider opening in the rear lower valance where the exhaust tips extrude, red reflector to the inside of each tip. This one does not have that and has a narrower, ighter fitting opening. I am told the TWR's also have the name "TWR" somewhere in front of the shifter. This does not have that. Also, aven't seen any TWR's with the red piping on the seats. I have not had anyone contact me that has been able to produce information on another car that is like this one. It does appear to be very outside the norm. If you have information on these cars, would very much appreciate hearing from you.Thanks for looking. Feel free to ask any questions!Payment:$500 non-refundable paypal deposit due within 48 hours of auction close. We will work out the details of the balance and timeframe for pickup from there. Cash on pickup is preferred. Unless we are meeting at a local bank branch where we can cash the check together, NY check will need to be deposited and 100% clear before the title will be released. Wire transfer is also a possible option.Shipping:Transportation of the car, ncluding all transportation costs is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Car will need picked up within 2 weeks of auction close unless other arrangements are discussed and agreed upon in advance of the auction closing. I can possibly store the car a little longer if needed for a fee, roviding the car is paid for in full within 2 weeks of the auction close. I can be available to help load the car.Again, his is a special Jaguar, t is not like any others listed on eBay. See for yourself.
