Shift-it-yourself: 1993 Jaguar XJS Convertible

I don’t like posting cars that are “expensive” and this next car is no cheap and depreciated luxury barge…but…BUT…it features the second most beautiful shape from Jaguar (first is the E-Type…hands down) and it is equipped with the rarely-seen-on-this-side-of-the-ocean manual gearbox. This is a combo that is hard to beat. Find this 1993 Jaguar XJS offered for $25,000 near Houston, TX via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

FOR SALE OR TRADE: 1993 JAGUAR XJS ROADSTER equipped with 5 speed manual transmission and rare factory racing wheels. Purchased new in 93 and owned by Texas Oil Magnate until death in 2009. The Jag spent the next 10 years in climate controlled storage until released by Probate Court in 2019. This is one fine Motor Car and as the photos show, the Jag is perfect in every way. Records suggest only 4 Jaguar XJS Roadsters with the five speed transmission were shipped to North America in 93. Included are all the books, manuals and receipts that came with the car. This Jag Roadster is valued at up to 25,000 in North America and approximately 50,000 in Europe, Australia and Asia. I am willing to TRADE up or down for items of like value. Ideally I would like a late model Ford F-450 or F-550 or perhaps a F-650 if equipped to my liking. I would consider heavy or farm equipment for full or partial trade. In the alternative I am asking 25,000 OBO or a partial trade with cash may be acceptable depending on the trade item.
