The more I think of the years I have owned and worked on making this Beautiful Grand Touring XJS V12 into a reliable driver with extra upgrades and determination. This is a Very Special Car! I am embarrassed to tell how much I have in this car. But I have to have perfection and reliability, this Classic car is fun to drive at any speed, if you are even thinking of buying a V12 I don't care what the miles are on it for a 25+ year old car you are going to have to replace and renew everything as I learned. This is an opportunity to buy a restored V12 and avoid all the years of repairs that you will experience. At this price this car is a steal, I should keep it now that its done but I have 3 convertibles now down from 5 and 2 keepers that are both supercharged. A quick story: when I first started on this car I had an issue I thought only the dealership could solve, when I was directed to the master mechanic and told him I had a V12, He responded, "I am sorry to hear that!" the dealer was new and did not stock any old parts or had the mechanics to repair. I have found all the gremlins which is hard to do in a V12 and replaced and repaired everything I can think of. So when thinking of buying a V12 buying a restored reliable V12 is the only way. Thanks for looking.
