This striking Convertible was sold new in June, 1988, complete with TWR bodykit and wheels. It was acquired by Damian Leach of Spraycraft, Widnes in 2012. He: stripped and refinished the Jaguar in 17 coats of primer and Signal Red topcoat; rubbed down, Waxoyled and re-sealed the underbody; overhauled the braking system; gave the suspension a thorough checkover; and had the steering refurbished by Kyley Clinton of Birmingham. The engine and automatic gearbox were treated to a full service and the car's interior restored or replaced as required. The vendor acquired the now rejuvenated XJ-S in 2013, since when it has been serviced by Kennedy Motors, Northwich in 2014 and by David Hammond of Waverton this year. It has also recently benefited from a brand new set of tyres and an MOT valid to June 29th 2017. The speedometer was apparently changed in 2009 - the total of that and its replacement are c.101,928.
