My XJ40 for sale.

Postby blastercas » Sun Apr 14, 2019 5:34 pm

It’s with great disappointment that I have to sell my XJ40 a 1994 4.0 litre S at present it’s under light restoration and will be sold as an unfinished project and will need trailering away.
Let me explain..............the car is in my mates parents driveway.....there’s been a family fallout and they want my car off the driveway, I am not in the best of health and have nowhere to keep the car.
What’s done............from the front to back......new headlights new bottom radiator frame and rubber bushes front bumper stripped new bolts rust cured, engine Vee blocks new suspension bushes wheel bearings and Sachs shocks, braided hoses front wings which have been thoroughly sealed with under seal as the inner wings Engine is without oil and all valve clearance checked and were spot on compression test was spot on. Gearbox is again without oil and has a new filter and seal fitted, never got around to renewing bushes on the rear suspension but I have the following for the rear end, all suspension bushes, new Sachs shocks braided hoses, refurbished calipers and new discs and handbrake brake shoes cannot remember if I got new pads to go in,
Body work..........is absolutely solid and was patched in the usual places both front foot wells and n/s wheel arch, the repairs were plated up after bad metal ground out, zinc primered fibre glass resin to seal the welds then the whole underside was schutz sprayed ....... it’s totally bulletproof the body work.
New parts........both front door seals front footwell carpets, rear axle nuts, rear discs, and rear wheel bearings, rear shocks, suspension bushes, reconditioned rear calipers.
Used parts.......rear n/s seat belt, rear light assemblies,
Wheels decent but I was gonna powder coat
Inside.......is in fairly good condition headlining has sagged and I have been using dehumidifiers to keep the damp out.
So that’s as much as I can remember.

Shame you have to sell it unfinished.
It’s hard to put a value on unfinished projects, but I think most buyers would find it helpful to hear a guide price?
Your location too?

Plus of course everyone will want pictures.

The way things are I am open to offers and understand that you would need to organise a trailer or some means of removal plus I am way up I live in Stanhope County Durham, the car is on Crawleyside Bank Stanhope, the body work is unbelievable really.

It can sometimes take a little time to find the right buyer who is looking for a project car in your area. So it depends how long you can wait?

I would think your only option to keep it, is find lock up garage nearby? If councils still have those in your area? Or ask a farmer for a corner of his barn?

Yeah that might be the only option eventually.......I’d give it to someone who would like to do the car some justice because the money I’m asking is not life changing........but if I did the wife would have a fanny fit..........you know what they are like :evil: :roll:
