In one of the sticky threads at the top of this section is a buyers guide that might help

Any 30-35 year old Jag is gonna need work....especially in that price range. It's a rare one that doesn't and the price would be wayyyyy higher. If you're a half-decent DIYer these cars are not that hard to deal with. Parts prices are usually sensible; tons of internet support; it's a fairly low-tech car by today's standards.

Paint, chrome, leather, etc is hugely expensive so if strong cosmetics are important to you buy a car that already looks great. The mechanical repairs usually are not that expensive.....assuming DIY labor

Anyhow, read the buyers guide as a starting point and then you might have more specific questions

Cheers
DD
