By the looks of things it seems that I may have been lucky enough to find more then a cursory XJS Lister.
From what I gather the car was totaled by an insurance company and then sold to a salvage yard without a title.
The car was listed on Craigslist some hours before I was fortunate enough to be cruising the site not looking for anything in-particular. I hesitated a bit before contacting the seller and after haggling over the price I walked away. After thinking about it I called the guy back within the hour and reasoned that the first negotiated price was worth it. The seller was nice enough to take the ad down based on my promise to buy the car. 10 days later I had the car on my trailer.
It’s been raining and I haven’t been able to unload the car yet nor take any really good pictures yet but I am curious to know what you guys think so far.
Take note of the intake air trumpets, clutch hydraulic reservoir, side skirts, rear apron, steering wheel, BBS wheels with lister badge, 5 speed.
I didn’t think to take any photos of the interior but all things considered it’s not in bad shape and surprisingly the roof liner is not hanging down.
An old license plate lying on the floor indicates the car was last registered in Kentucky. Maybe someone here might know of the last owner.
The car does not have a sunroof and it seems.
All but one of the corners of the front spoiler is missing. I am not sure if the corner piece that’s left is enough to recreate it in it’s entirety.
