Reply To: XJS Hood colours.

Hi John,

I’ve not come across any red hoods being on offer for the XJS convertible, so I’ve taken a look at the Paul Skilleter book you mention

That photo shows to me what looks like the Tan roof, not red. The an almost exact example belongs to a Hess & Eisenhardt version of the XJS Convertible – it appears in their advertising literature (all be it from a different angle with a glider behind it).

I think I have seen other examples with the Tan hood, but not Red.
