In 1983, the Jaguar XJ‑S had its V12 engine supplemented by a new 3.6‑litre Jaguar AJ6 straight‑six unit. At the same time, a convertible version was introduced, something the market (especially in the USA) had been wanting for years. The new convertible two‑seater was called the XJ‑SC, but wasn't strictly a full convertible, instead having a centre targa‑type structure and rear soft‑top. It was replaced in 1988 by a full convertible.

This Caesium Blue 3.6‑litre car was registered in September 1987 and has 118,795 miles recorded on its odometer. The vendor has owned it since 2016, but is now selling as the car is only used for shows. The car, which was fitted with TWR alloy wheels, side‑skirts and rear spoiler in 2019, after a full bare metal respray during 2017 and 2018, when it also received a new rear quarter and other bodywork repairs, at a cost of £4000. The Caesium Blue colour ‑ a 2017 Jaguar shade ‑ was applied during the repaint. More recent work has involved a service and air conditioning re‑gas in August 2020 at 118,709 miles. The current odometer reading is 119,795 miles.

Included in the history folder are the V5C (recording eight former keepers), many MoTs dating back to 1997 (when the mileage was recorded as 84,539) and a stack of invoices back to the same year, totalling in excess of £10,000. The present MoT expires in December 2022. There's also the owner's handbook and photos of the 2017/2018 renovation, plus a spare set of keys. The vehicle was recorded as a total insurance loss in November 1996.

Having been repainted four years ago and only covered a few hundred miles since then, this Jaguar is in very good order externally, with only a light patina and minimal wear to the beige interior.
