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.
There are two types of V8 swapped Jaguars out there roaming around the streets. The first is the carburetor fed Chebby 350 powered versions — these are built by sellers who are sick of paying crazy Jag V12 maintenance costs and can be fun. The second type of swap is the paradigm presented by KWE Cars, which is where you upgrade and make the entire package better with technology and a steady stream of cash. The sell claims $40k to convert it and if that is true, then paying less than $15k is a smokin deal. Find this 1989 Jaguar XJS V8 Swap offered for $14,500 in Wickenburg, AZ via craigslist.
I haven’t made up my mind about this next car…so I’m going to post it and let you guys tell me if it is right on the money or a bridge too far. Anyway, the background behind this car is that back in the 80s the management at Jaguar didn’t want to spend the money […]
Happy New Year to everyone — enjoy the opportunity to remake yourself with a new beach body, new hairdo, or new car. Beach bod is going to require too much time at the gym, and your hairline has receded into last decade, so a car it is!! Find this 1977 Jaguar XJS offered for sale or […]
The Jaguar V12 engine was launched in 1971 for the E-Type road car, but the design was originally created for the mad XJ13 LeMans racer. A few years later, the engine was stuffed into the Malcolm Sayer/Doug Thorpe designed XJS…and MANY years later you can get one for the price of a years worth of […]
The Jaguar XJS was a luxury grand tourer that survived with only a few changes over an impressive 21 year lifespan. Production of the Malcolm Sayer and Doug Thorpe designed 2+2 started in 1975, had a minor makeover in 1982, and a more significant re-design in 1992 and the last cars left the factory in […]
Last week we posted a few questionable Jaguar machines that had been Chevified with a carburetor fed small block mated to a TH350 slushbox, but today I’ve got a fuel injected Jaguaro with a 6-speed manual box…but you’ve seen this car before when it sold for something above $7k. Find this 1980 Jaguar XJS with […]
DT’s resident pirate and logo guru Kaibeezy always keeps an eye open (the eye that isn’t covered by the patch…I think) for good used XJS Jags, but would he drive one that didn’t have a big monster V12 under the hood? Maybe…but only if he could smell the salt air in an open top. Find […]
Jaguar built their XJ-S replacement for the gorgeous E-Type starting in 1975, and if you were a rich/distinguished buyer at the time, you would have noticed something conspicuously absent from the order sheet options. Where did the convertible (the best looking E-Type) go when they designed the XJ-S? Find this 1988 Jaguar XJ-S V12 offered for […]
The Jaguar XJ-6 was launched in 1968 and I wonder if it even took a week before the first one was powered by a small block Chevy V8. The shoehorning of SBC into Jags is almost out of hand to the point where it would be considered objectionable…except that they add power/torque/reliability at a reduced […]
