This 1990 Jaguar XJS V12 was the very few recipients of the Keisler 5-speed transmission swap, utilizing a 5-speed Tremec transmission. The rare Keisler manual transmission conversions are quite well respected, and are known for the quality of their engineering and workmanship. It really changed the entire driving experience of the car for the better, and substantially increased the smile factor! The convertible top operates well, with a new top motor just last month. I personally drove the car from Amelia Island, FL to Dayton, OH a few years ago, and encountered no problems at all. The vehicle has since been on exhibit at the British Transportation Museum. The fuel tank had been drained, and has now been refilled with ethanol-free 91 octane gasoline. The tires, while appearing serviceable, were dated 2007, and replaced with new Michelin tires earlier this week to ensure the safely of the next caretaker of this wonderful car. Included in the sale will be service records from the previous owner of the vehicle, detailing some $17,000 in repairs and preventive maintenance during his stewardship.
As with any used vehicle of some age, we can make no guarantees and offer no warranty as to the condition of the car or of it's future performance, and welcome an in-person inspection at our facility in Dayton, Ohio. We are happy to accommodate professional pre-purchase inspections or appraisals within reason, and are available to answer any specific questions regarding this extremely rare example.
