1984 Jaguar XJS 2-door Coupe Description





Meticulously maintained

This is an amazing and simply gorgeous condition Jaguar XJS sports coupe. Finished in Black with Dove grey leather interior there is virtually nothing on this example that is not simply immaculate. The best way to describe this Jaguar is to pretend you are in, say, 1987 and you are buying a well-kept certified 1984 Jaguar from the authorised dealer.
This is a 2 meticulous owner car with some 29,000 miles, residing in Illinois its whole life but not driven in inclement weather - it is without a spec of rust anywhere.
Everything works completely as it should and as pictures show, is in immaculate presentation. The second and recent owner was incredibly meticulous having a "no bars hold" attitude to maintenance, service and repair. We have history of work done to the car over recent years totalling some $25,000 and this was not because the car had issues, but the owner was that fussy!
Mechanically the car is in fantastic shape with no outstanding issues. Just a quick look under the hood is testament to how well this XJS has been maintained.
Every single feature and function works as it should; windows, door locks, antenna, stereo, A/C, heater, interior and exterior lights, horn (both high and low).... the complete list. An after market, high quality stereo system has been fitted with top quality speakers, all correctly installed in their factory location to maintain complete discretion.
Body and paint is excellent. Very shiny and consistent with hardly a minor chip anywhere. There is no rust in the typical areas namely; the bottom of the front and rear windows, lower fenders, rockers and wheel arches. Unlike many Jaguars of the era, this one is free of the ugly side mouldings installed by dealers when new. Mounted are brand new (and expensive) Michelin tyres in their correct 215/70-15 size. The factory correct Jaguar rims are in excellent shape. The spare is the factory original Pirelli P5 which we belive has never been mounted on the car.
The interior is absolutely a stunning aspect of the car with virtually no wear. The factory carpets are excellent and the headliner is in perfect condition ~ without any of the typical "droop" usually seen on this model. The leather is stunning, the dash like a new one and the mahogany wood in excellent condition with no cracks or damage (note: a small hairline fracture in the lacquer adjacent to the hazard light switch). A faux wood ski-slope has been added which looks very much "in-place" but can easily be swapped out to the original if so preferred. Mindful of the incredible condition of the interior, have a close look at all the buttons and switch gear; they are all in excellent condition. Even the factory leather steering wheel is like a 3 year old example. All simply amazing. She is also a non-smoker car so clean and sweet.
Not much more can be said but to invite you to take a close look at the many, many photos of this great Jaguar sports coupe. Truly an immaculate example, I am sure you will agree. Surely amongst one of the best examples available for sale today. This XJS is so nice, you could drive it as-is to your next Jaguar meet and be in for a very good chance of winning 1st prize in its category ~ she is simply THAT good.

**PLEASE read auction terms and conditions below BEFORE bidding.**


This Jaguar is part of a private collection. Although licensed and bonded, I am not a main-stream retail car dealer or broker; I am a professional car collector of some 40 years with considerable experience and knowledge of British cars. I have a long standing reputation being associated with the Rolls-Royce marque which I take seriously. I take pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them. However, auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer, and you are the winning bidder, please understand you have entered a binding contract. You cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. Once you bid or make an offer, you are doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. Your bid can not be subject to anything. A $2000.00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by PayPal. The balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier’s check or bank wire. I cannot accept PayPal for the balance unless you are willing to meet the cost of transfer fees. Full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so, if all the funds are not received as outlined above, I reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received and I elect to terminate the contract, I reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. To be clear, if you change your mind for ANY reason and do not complete the transaction in the time-frame required, you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.

As a collector and experienced restorer of a range of classic cars, I make every effort to bring my cars to a high standard. By comparison, my cars are generally superior to others available but they are by no means perfect. You must expect some issues. Unless specifically stated, the car is not of show standard but of nice "driver" condition. Please understand, show cars cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve and sell for prices commensurate, so the sale price of this car reflects its relative condition. You are buying "condition" accordingly. Buyers should not expect to receive concours quality or "perfect" cars at these prices. Please also understand it is not always possible to attend to every item, or perhaps I may have inadvertently overlooked items. Further, and very importantly, these cars are not new. So this means a 35 year old car is predominantly comprised of 35 year old parts. And old parts will fail. All buyers must understand and expect that things can or will wear out, break and/or stop functioning without notice. This is even more likely with hand-built English cars of early technology when compared to the typical American car of the same vintage. Suspension and brakes on these cars are complex. We thoroughly check them and replace things that are identified faulty. But please understand, by example; if we change a brake line because it appears aged or faulty, we do NOT at the same time replace all other hoses because they are of similar age. This is considered "preventative maintenance". We do not do this unless specifically requested and is not included in the purchase price. Feel free to ask for this additional service. Further, a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment, may decide to play-up the next. After all, it is some 35 years old. This is the nature of any used car and especially British cars. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:

The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is" with no warranty expressed, written or implied. Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment and accuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible for errors in description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. If any aspect of the description contradicts what can be seen in the photos, then the photos shall prevail as the reference point. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, unforeseen imperfection, defect or damage. It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely. The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer’s request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any written or oral statements about the vehicle. Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age, in most US states, the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage, transportation, or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end, a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also, you must remember that this is a 35 year old vehicle, and while it is up to you, I do not recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country” until you have familiarised yourself with the car. At least, I have never done that. I have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where I bought them to my home.


I am sorry if these terms seem harsh but there seem to be some very unrealistic buyers out there - fortunately, only few of these people exist but those that do can make life difficult, so it appears EVERYTHING needs to spelled out. Very simply put, this is an old car being offered for sale. It is not new and is subject to the perils of age. Further, Jaguars are not without nuances, idiosyncrasies and they are renown for a host of design issues which can make them not inexpensive to maintain. So, please respect the terms and conditions when you bid.
