We’ve already featured a Chevy V8 powered Jaguar this week, located in Texas with the bidding at $1200 when the electronic gavel dropped. It was easily worth the swap parts alone, so we are going to feature another Jagorvette, this time a rag top. This 1991 Jaguar XJS Convertible with Chevy 350 V8 is for sale in Putnam Valley, NY and is currently bidding on ebay for $2,551 with 1 day to go.
The shape of the XJS is iconic and still looks great after all these years, especially in convertible trim. This one needs a paint job and some interior work, but the price is accordingly low.
The original V12 has been replaced with a 5.7 liter V8 from an undisclosed model year Chevrolet, so this could make anything from 175 to 300 horsepower depending on the parts chosen (cams/pistons/heads/intake/exhaust etc)
The interior of this Jaguar needs some work – the seats are worn, but the dash looks in surprisingly good shape. No claw marks or high-heel imprints to speak of.
A basic paint job and this thing will be a fantastic cruiser for heading up to the Hamptons for the weekend or moving to places that don’t snow.
