Concours Cat: 1998 Jaguar XK8 Convertible – Sold?

Feb 2021 | Classifinds, Topless Thursday

March 3, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

Unlike the nut-and-bolt-restored 1956 DeSoto FireFlite we’re also featuring for Topless Thursday, this 5,200 original mile 1998 Jaguar XK8 is a great example of the old car adage “they are only original once.”  If you wanted a 1998 Jaguar XK8 new back in 1998 but just couldn’t swing it, now’s your chance to own a 23-year new example with only 5,234 original miles currently originally listed in February 2021 in Manchester, New Hampshire for the asking price of $27,900. With no Hagerty Insurance valuation to go on, we checked Bring A Trailer for comps and sure enough, this 6K mile 2002 XK8 example sold in December for $27,250 so we have a feeling the seller is expecting BaT money on a Craigslist ad.  That said, the pictures taken outside of a building with an “Open” sign and a garage door combined with the temporary tag have us thinking the seller of this “One-Owner” may likely be a dealer posing as an individual seller.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“ONE OWNER FROM NEW
22 SERVICE RECORDS IN 22 YEARS FROM JAGUAR
100% FIRST PAINT
PERFECT CARFAX
