Oh gosh, put in a silly (i mean silly) bid and won (sight unseen) a 1985 Lynx convertible XJS HE V12 with a manual 5 spped getrag gearbox

NO MOT, but car drives fine - or so i am told !

So i need a little help

I need any reccomendations on a Jag garage in the west London area?

I have posted on a couple of Jag forums at luchtime today and not one response yet

Hope to hear from any one - THANKS IN ADVANCE

Hi Faried,

Just googled it here:
https://www.coys.co.uk/cars/1985-jaguar-xjs-he-lynx-spider-v12

Looks a lovely car - very jealous. Be interested to hear more, once you have got your hands on it.

Cheers
Ben

Not in London, but there isn't much David Marks doesn't know about these. He is my next door neighbour.

I used to pass one on Goldhawk Road several years ago. From a quick search it seems to be: https://www.jagshopworkshop.co.uk

The search also turned up the similarly named: http://thejagworkshop.co.uk which seems to be nearby in Park Royal.

I've not used either, so you'll need to do your own research to satisfy yourself on reputations.

hth & keep us posted on your progress

Nothing like a man with Courage ......!
Looks great for obviously decent money if it was a really cheeky bid ..!

Good luck fettling it ... no doubt will take a few quid up front but the reward comes in the drive later ...! V12 ...no substitute for horses !

No way!!

A black with cream interior one drove past me the other night, the guy looked in his element! I was straight on ebay when I got home wanting one, now I see this!!!

Great buy, please put pics and details up once you have it! Thumb

The phrase 'money pit' prings to mind.

Good luck. (And don't forget to stick a couple of quid aside for petrol)

looking at these at the moment too - need to tick the V12 box!

I use Alan Lloyd down in Kingston to look after my XJR - always had some interesting classic Jags around in various states of service/restoration.

I had an XJS HE many years ago (auto)....the only car I have ever owned that would accelerate from 15 mph in top gear to 150 mph! (not quickly, as to induce kickdown). Drive 24 mpg too.

I can remember there was a company ( can't remember what they were called) who would tune that V12 to give 800 bhp Surprised

Complex car even by today's standards.

4 hours to change the plugs.

Rust is the main issue with them. Outer and inner sills if I remember correctly. oh... and brake pipes but I bet they were changed to copper a long while ago.

Is it a 5 speed conversion? Didn't Lister do a "Hot" one with the 5 speed?

Real sense of occasion in the driving seat.

Nice colour...I had the not so popular at the time, Gold.....probably even less popular now Floor

Enjoy. Hope it gets through an MOT without too much pain. Thumb
