    Hi Laurence Thank you.
    My Cab, has had several owners prior to me however it has just clocked 60000 miles and been in my collection for over 20yrs.
    Although kept in professional storage and hardly used I have had a lot of work done on it. some major work includes
    Bare metal respray after new front wing D/S L & R rear valances brakes discs callipers, new rad and crossmember and the fuel tank was removed and restored (try to find a Cab fuel tank?) All done due to Britishleyland corrosion. Whats lacking the interior needs some TLC I had a complete good as new one to fit but unfortunately it was stolen from the workshop of the people who were contracted to fit it.

    Why do I have it and spend so much on it the answer is quite simple this is my second XJS and this 3.6 manual is just a joy to drive. I have a modern day Range Rover which is also a very nice vehicle however in 20yrs time I doubt if it would be as enjoyable or cheaper to run.

    The XJS-C was first registered in 1985. The restoration company told me it was a ‘Tickford version’ as they were part of Aston Martin at the time and Jaguar gave them some XJS cars to convert to convertibles and they came up with the Cabriolet

    I have quite a few pictures of some restoration work

    Best regards Chris Farlow
