    The design of the two Hoods illustrated look different to me. One has a more wrapped round shape in the rear quarter window area resulting in the hiding of the little bodywork triangle to the bottom left of the glass. Personally I really don’t like the look of the bottom Hood at all, looks rather cumbersome compared to the top cars hood which looks more sleek.
    According to the Parts catalogue official Convertible hoods were offered in Black, Blue and Brown and interestingly they also made what is listed as a hood cover for transit use which was in Jaguar Green. This transit hood looks like a full Hood without a rear window panel at all, just entirely material. Has anyone ever seen one of these or even possess one? ( cannot see anything similar for the Cabriolet)
