I HAVE A 1988 XJ12 BLACK W/ TAN INTERIOR MOONROOF AND I BELIEVE
ALL OPTIONS CAR RAN GREAT SINCE I OWNED IT, LAST SUMMER WHILE DRIVING IT WAS RUNNING HOT. I TURNED IT OFF NEVER COULD RESTART, HAD IT TOWED AND MY MECHANICA BELIEVES THE MOTOR SEIZED. HATE TO PART IT(COULD PROBABLY SELL PARTS FOR $5000.) OUT AS I'M NO MECHANIC AND THE CAR IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR THE YEAR, SOMEONE COULD HAVE A GREAT PARTS CAR OR REBUILD MOTOR(OR I HEAR A CHEVY 350 BOLTS RIGHT ON), AGAIN I'M NEAR CLEVELAND (40 MILES TO WEST ON LAKE ERIE)

 CALL JIM ROTH 440-554-3752  $850.OBO CAR WILL BE SCRAPPED IF NOT SOLD IN 3 DAYS!!!



What a time to be broke it looks great.

I feel for ya, if that car were here in my neck of the woods, I'd jump on it as well. Rebuilding a V12 isn't easy, and if he overheated it, chances are that the crank and heads are toast. Still, for about $2K you could be running a great car again.

I was thinking pull it in a shed yank the engine and turn the rebuild into a year or so long project.

Even though I prefer mostly american cars for that money and even the high cost of a decent replacement engine you would  be riding in what we call down here "high cotton"
