1986 Jaguar XJ-SC 5.3 V12 Targa Convertible For Sale
Exceptional example of this now rare and appreciating Jaguar XJ-SC 5.3 V12 targa roof convertible. Only built between 1983 & 1988 less than 5000 SC's were produced. Many of these cars were 3.6 straight sixes and eighty percent of production was in left hand drive. Allowing for cars that have now been scrapped, right hand drive 5.3 V12's must now only exist as a few hundred examples. An appreciating very useable investment car.
This vehicle has been very well cared for and garaged its whole life. There are two box files/folders of receipts for past work carried out.The bodywork is rust and rot free. The panels are straight and the shut lines are even. If I were to fault the bodywork, there is a small pimple on the boot lid where it has been shut down onto a hard object (doesn't show in photos) and there are some age related chips to the leading edge of the bonnet.
The interior is in excellent condition, free of any tears or rips & showing little sign of wear. The fitted bags for the targa tops are present. There is some sagging to the targa top headlinings, an easy repair if that was deemed necessary.
The engine and transmission both operate smoothly & quietly. No known faults.
The car has been recently MOT'd which expires March 2020. Genuine documented mileage of just under 94500 miles - this may increase slightly.
This car was purchased jointly with my father-in-law just over two years ago. I reside in Dublin, Ireland. The car is at my father-in-laws premises in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. The plan was for me to use the car when in the UK & for him to use it as Sunday driver. Unfortunately my visits to the UK are infrequent and he has not had sufficient time to drive the car regularly. For these reasons we have reluctantly decided to sell the car.
NOTE! The car is in warehouse storage in the DEWSBURY/HECKMONDWIKE area of West Yorkshire.
To discuss the car in detail please call me, Mark on +353(0) the details below in Dublin.
To arrange a viewing please call Keith on +44(0) the details below in West Yorkshire
Open to sensible offers. Please no tyre kickers or dreamers - we are both very busy.
