Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1983, Jaguar's first response to demands for an open-top XJ-S was somewhat conservative in engineering terms. The XJ-S had not been designed with an open version in mind, so the Targa-style arrangement was adopted, which retained a substantial roll hoop in the interests of maintaining rigidity in the absence of a fixed roof. Essentially an exercise in niche marketing to test public reaction, the Cabriolet's production was entrusted to outside specialist contractors, with bodyshells being transported back and forth across the Midlands before returning to the Brown's Lane factory prior to final despatch. A conventional Convertible model arrived in 1988. Following the Cabriolet's deletion, both the Coupé and Convertible models lasted until the end of XJ-S production in 1996.

    This automatic transmission XJ-S V12 Convertible was sold new via The Jaguar Centre, Hull to a Mr Higgins of Driffield, North Humberside. Its original registration number was 'G145 LAT'. The accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate records the second owner as Driffield Land Rover, and there is a purchase receipt on file relating to the car's sale by Kings Road Garage, Berkhamsted to Mr Trevor Hancox in February 1997.

    Following Mr Hancox's death, the current vendor, a professional body repair specialist, purchased the XJ-S from his widow in September 2011 with the intention of restoring it. Completed in December 2014, the works included fitting new front wings; rear wing arch repair panels; outer sills; rear inner closing panels; and all four lower corner panels, which was followed by a re-spray. In addition, the hood, headlining, suspension bushes, front brake discs, three tyres and the battery were replaced, the wheels and sub-frame refurbished and the car fully serviced. Refinished in its original Signal Red, this truly stunning XJ-S Convertible is offered with the aforementioned JDHT Certificate, sundry restoration bills, current MoT and a V5C registration document. A total of approximately 85,000 miles is currently displayed on the odometer.
