‘X’ Marks the Spot: ‘Well Loved’ 2004 Jaguar X-Type for $700?!?
New Jersey-based Jaguar Forums member has a Jag that needs ‘a lot of work’…but could be ‘a very nice [project] car.’
Although we are located in sunny SoCal and across the country from New Jersey, this slick black 2004 Jaguar X-Type certainly caught our attention over here at the Jaguar Forums office, especially after noticing that its original $900 asking price just dropped by $200. So, what gives?
“I’d rather give it at a very inexpensive price to somebody that wanted to fix it than scrap it,” writes Basking Ridge, NJ, forum member Jimborino in his Jaguar Forums Marketplace post about his “well loved X-Type.” He bought the used manual sedan five years ago and which has 160131 miles on it.
Jimborino provides a comprehensive overview of his X-Type, and he details exactly why he’s putting the vehicle up for sale, mentioning up front that there are some mechanical issues with the Jag. The situation, however, seems like a great potential project car for a fellow enthusiast, especially one experienced with fixing bad clutch slave cylinders.
“The job to replace the clutch is a big one,” writes the Senior Forum Member. “I have my own lift in my garage, but it’s a hell of a lot of work to do the clutch repair, plus then we have to determine why its not starting now.
‘Somebody with more time than me could fix this and have a very nice car – and somewhat rare, what with it being a stick and the color scheme.’
“Honestly, if I didn’t have my XK8, I would probably do this,” adds Jimborino. “But I do, and that car and my MR2 suck up all my free time lately…Somebody with more time than me could fix this and have a very nice car – and somewhat rare, what with it being a stick and the color scheme.”
Jimborino adds that the engine does run, and a complete list of repairs done is available on request. He also provides a link to a Google album that features a wide variety of exterior and interior shots of the previously owned 2004 Jaguar X-Type car that is for sale.
“I really would like to see this car go,” he writes. “My son is getting a newer car, so I’m lowering the ask to $700 or best offer.”
