1997 Jaguar XK8
Jaguar made only 1 coupe for every 8 convertibles so these cars are rare and hard to find. This one is in the very desirable British Racing Green over tan leather interior. Needs work- engine is bad- no compression- will not run. Good car to repair- fix the engine or convert it to GM LS power with a kit from Jaguar Specialties. A kit to do the LS conversion is available for sale with the car at a great price if desired- see below. Will consider a package deal price for the car + LS Conversion Kit. This has been a California car since new and nice condition overall- good body, nice interior, chrome wheels and only 97,035 original miles. The car is still in original shape and has not been disassembled (and the LS conversion kit is still in a box, untouched). Overall good condition- body has a few dings here and there- no rust anywhere. Paint appears to be original and clear coat has failed on the roof and trunk lid (see pics)- otherwise, the paint on the car is ok and could use a major buffing. Interior overall good- seats much better than typical for this year with no rips/holes or major wear; door panels, dash, headliner, and carpets all nice. Dash wood may have a crack here or there. Has chrome wheels with decent Michelin tires. Wheels look nice but have the typical corrosion between the spokes if you look closely. Passenger headlight has a chip in the lens but seems ok. Electrically everything seems to work. Radio seems to work but digital display is weak. CD changer in the trunk wasn’t tested. Digital display- mileage, etc.. On dash works but is readout is weak. The car has a clean California title, on non-operation status (so no back reg). Comes with 3 keys and 2 remotes. This is a 22 year old used car and I’ve tried to cover all of the details possible to give the best impression on its condition. The best company, based on my experience, is Able Auto Transport. 1.800.340.0951. They are the largest broker and usually have the best deal. If you haven’t already seen or heard about the possibility of an LS engine in an XK8, go straight to the Jaguar Specialties website (can’t list the exact address here- do a Google search) and see their info on it. This is a FANTASTIC conversion for these cars they even have an option for a manual transmission…. The Jaguar Specialties kit includes the following. Engine Mount Adaptors (LS engine to Jaguar chassis). Transmission Mount Adaptor (LS transmission to Jaguar chassis). Shifter Package (Jaguar shifter to GM transmission; not included on manual transmission version). Cooling System Adaptor Piping (Jaguar radiator to LS engine). Power Steering Interface (Jaguar steering rack to LS pump). Oil Pressure Sender Adaptor. Driveline Adaptors (GM transmission to Jaguar driveline). Air Conditioning Pressure Switch Adaptor. XJ-XK CAN Interface Module needed so all of the stock gauges, AC system, etc. XJ-XK CAN Wiring Harness. XJ-XK CAN Installation Manual. Exhaust headpipe flange set (to make connection of the new LS1 engine to the original Jag exhaust system or a new system easy). Throttle cable kit- to mate the Jaguar throttle pedal to the LS1 throttle body. If you’re interested in the car and the kit as a package, I will work out a great deal for you that will save several hundred dollars!!!!
