This Jaguar Coupe is in very good condition. The car has been totally repainted once in the original color, the paint color is Willow Green and is in flawless concours condition, not a scratch on it - flawless! The chrome as well is in near mint condition. When the car was repainted they replaced all of the exterior rubber (windows, doors, hatch, bonnet, etc.) The interior is just ok, and shows wear especially in the front seats., however the door panels are in excellent condition, and the carpets are ok. The headliner sags a bit, overall the car is very nice. Has an automatic, with air (I tried to get the AC to work, it comes on in the high mode, not blowing cold. May need t be recharged as the car has been sitting for 3 years). The antenna was replaced with a manual one, the old electric antenna is included however it needs to be repaired. The mileage is incorrect, it only show 4776 miles, the actual mileage is 38,406. When bought the speedometer was not working properly. He had the speedometer repaired and reset to zero. There is a sticker on the driver side that shows in Nov. of 1988 the mileage was 33,630.
The tires are new (as of 4 years ago, they are Pirelli P5's including the spare)
There is no rust, the floor pans are rust free and original. The numbers all match.
I would rate the car on the ouside as near perfect, the engine bay is very clean, as well as the underside of the car. The interior would need to be redone to make this a show car. Shows and drives very well.
