Hyper-S V8: 1985 Jaguar XJS

I hate to see another Jaguar XJS ruined with a cheap Chevy V8 swap…but this one isn’t as bad as the typical small block with slushbox setup because it has a 5-speed manual. The under hood wiring could using some cleaning up, but the giant aluminum radiator/fan shroud seems purpose built and the Hyper-S body kit is interesting because there is some history behind a fellow name Paul Hands who built some Hyper Jags back in the day, there was even a Hyper Register alive at some point in time, but it seems gone now. Anyway, find this 1985 Jaguar XJS offered for $8,500 in Albany, NY via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
