For two years 1996-1998 Jaguar offered a special convertible version of their XJS. As Jaguar was not building convertibles at that time they contracted with Hess & Eisenhardt coach builders of Ohio, the exclusive presidential limousine coach builders, to do the conversion. Approximately 893 were built during this period and they are easy to pick out as the convertible top folds deep into the body of the car allowing for a clean lower profile and two badges located behind the front wheels.
This particular motorcar has been meticulously maintain both mechanically and cosmetically and virtually can not be distinguished from the day it left Hess & Eisenhardt. It has a clean Carfax and comes with its tools and books.
It is finished in a flawless deep Royal Blue non metallic and has impeccable tan Connelly hide leather interior highlighted with perfect burled walnut. It is fitted with a heavy Royal Blue convertible cloth top with beige headliner that opens and closes with the push of a button. It is also fitted with special ordered chrome wire wheels.
It is fitted with a 5.3L V12 FI SOHC engine which allows for excellent power and handling.
After 65 years of selling Jaguars, Rolls Royces, both new and pre owned, I can say that this is a true piece of history. With the low production, low miles and excellent condition this will only grow in value.
I take great pride in offering this masterpiece at an exceptional price.
