Jaguar XJS Convertible for sale Registered 1989 and finished in immaculate Signal Red with Biscuit leather interior. 18000 miles and presented in exceptional condition.

What is so different about a Dillybrook Classic Cars Jaguar XJS Convertible then? We will only sell XJSs sourced from Japan as the condition of these vehicles is exceptional: the Japanese climate is worldwide the most perfect in terms of cars’ preservation. In addition, their owners do not use these vehicles to commute, so the mileage is normally low and the condition is reflected by this.

In-house, our small team first inspects each Jaguar XJS Convertible for sale and assesses what work is required to bring each car up to Dillybrook Classic Cars standard.  All work identified is then completed prior to being cleared for sale.

Due to the age of these vehicles, the preparation work is frequently very comprehensive and ordinarily includes fully servicing the fuel injection rail and replacing aged rubber hoses etc as typical examples of just a couple of things we do.  Every XJS is fully serviced and comes with a new MOT on purchase as well as a 6 months’ “back to Dillybrook Classic Cars” warranty.

You do need to view a Dillybrook Classic Cars Approved Jaguar XJS Convertible to really understand why they are the best on the market.

One question has been asked of every Jaguar car since 1975: will it be the next E-type? The answer is always no, of course, because that iconic model was, like The Beatles and the miniskirt, a product of its era – a glorious, glamorous, game-changing thing that can’t be replicated.

What we really want is not another E-type, but a Jaguar that steps out of its lengthy shadow to become a star in its own right. We want it to be powerful, attractive, luxurious and desirable, but we also want it to be sufficiently under-appreciated so that we can afford one now, enjoy it for a generation then gloat as its value goes a similar way to that of its fabled forebear.

Think that’s too much to ask? Think again, because just such a Jaguar might already exist – and it’s called the XJS.

On the hoof, the XJS went like the clappers; through bends, it was sublime; inside, it offered a level of luxury befitting something far more expensive; and outside, it had class and style like little else of the era, equal parts muscle and stately grace. And it’s only getting better with age.

All of which suggests its bargain status is soon to end and, indeed, prices are already creeping up. Time alone knows whether it’ll ever come close to the E-type’s exponential rise in value, but it’s certainly got the ingredients to imitate the inflation, especially as its iconic cousin becomes unobtainable and attentions turn elsewhere in search of the next must-have Jag.

Old enough to be a classic, young enough to be affordable and deserving of a whole lot more appreciation, the real boon for anyone who does their homework and buys a decent XJS now is that it’s also a cracking car to drive. Better yet, of some 27,000 Series III machines built – compared to roughly 70,000 E-types – fewer than 1,000 examples of the XJS are still registered on the road in the UK. That’s a recipe for rarity which, as any E-type owner knows, could be the golden ticket and Dillybrook Classic Cars in Wiltshire have the best examples of the Jaguar XJS for sale.
