Here is my restored 1989 Jaguar XJS. For the Jag geeks the chassis VIN is SAJJNAEW3BB160228 and the engine 8S066942SA
First registered 2/5/89 in Essex. I bought it in 2014 and then spent the next 4 years restoring it, costing just over £15k and I have a huge file of bills for the new owner. The list of work done is below but most importantly, the front and rear frames have been completely rebuilt (including every part being blasted and repainted) with all new parts wherever possible. The frames contain the suspension and brakes and are quite complex to maintain especially the rears with inboard brakes so your cheaper XJS's will often be pretty on the outside a big bill underneath - cheap Jags are for a reason!

The final touch has been a complete trim off respray by the superb team at Painting Classic Cars in Eastbourne.

It drives absolutely perfectly and Ive clocked up over 1000 miles since the restoration. Being fussy there is probably more work that could be done maybe new woodwork and the gearbox is a bit noisy in 1st, but, my work is done and I have a new project so its time for it to go to a new home. Its a lovely drive, a great investment. Its obviously cost me more than Im selling it for so grab a bargain and with confidence that youre not buying a very glossy wreck!

Current mileage is 87151 although I am using it as my daily driver until sold so it will gradually go up. Cars are better to be driven than sat around. Passed latest MOT June 4th 2019

The big list:-

· Rear frame completely dismantled, all new brake components, pipes, suspension, bushes and all parts powder coated. Diff rebuilt and new radius arms.
· Front frame completely dismantled, all new brake components, wheel bearings, suspension, bushes and all parts powder coated. Steering rack rebuilt.
· 3 x Continental ContiPremium tyres.
· Gearbox new filter, fluid, sump gasket new dampers.
· Engine new water hoses, cam cover gaskets, exhaust (including downpipes), air valve, drive belts.
· New windscreen.
· New fuel tank new arch fuel lines.
· Body complete strip down, all corrosion repaired with new metal, full trim-off respray.
