Car to be at auction 10/22
1994 Jaguar XJS
Broad Arrow Auctions - Passion for the Drive : the Cars of Jim Taylor
Gloversville, 15 October
Chassis No. SAJNX2783RC193217
The Taylor XJS convertible is desirably equipped with the fuel-injected 4.0-litre six-cylinder engine, mated to the seldom seen six-speed manual transmission for a true enthusiast driving experience. Finished in Flamenco Red Mica over tan leather interior with matching wool carpeting and power top, it is also equipped with power steering, power windows, power seats, day/night mirror, chrome side mirrors, and air conditioning.
Mr. Taylor used this car occasionally with family for several years, and following a minor accident in 2003, noted in the history file, the bodywork was properly repaired and partially refinished. The XJS remains in otherwise good overall order, with a clean and untouched engine bay, and a crisp interior with burled walnut trim. At the time of cataloging, the car had recorded 31,145 miles, and it is complete with an original spare wheel and tire.
There is a reason that the XJS, in all its forms, was produced for over twenty years: it was a handsome, muscular automobile and a pleasure to drive. This example boasts a desirable specification and wonderful equipment, and would be a perfect example to employ as one's driver in sunny climates this winter.
