Please excuse some of my ignorance on many things Jag, I’m still learning
I bought this car from a gent in Far North NSW , Pip Nicholls? he told me he brought the car to Australia , may be he didn’t?
The photo attached is one I took only a month back or so… I can send more if you wish. But I have a feeling you know a lot more about the car than me…… so any info is greatly appreciated.
I saw your favourite quote about if Jag intended, jag would have made……
Confession time – My V12 is 5spd,
got a feeling you knew that maybe aswell though….

The information I have is the Cabriolet you own is one of two owned by Andrew Weinberg the other one being Vin 148332,
Andrew Owns a company called Jaguar Specialties in Campbell California,& he sold it to Philip Nicholls in Australia.All this information was in the cars notes & Philip Nicholls name had not got added to Vin 144735 Now up dated I can tell you it’s number 4,424 of 5,013 built & built on 04/09/1987.
So for the records RHD conversion & V12 Man 5 spd.
Which Magazine was that I have the data on all 5013 cabriolets built, AH was it the Australian Jaguar Magazine by my mate Les?
If so starting to make sense.

I signed up to the webpage, as I was handed a Jaguar Magazine (Edition 182 I think?) that had an article on XJSC, and that a record of them was trying to be established, I thought I’d help out- I think my car is already ‘known’ though
It now happily resides in Adelaide, it has had a front end suspension rebuild, and now I’m tackling the interior gremlins- heater controls / AC etc.
After that it is marked for a diff replacement, from a 2.88 to a 3.54.
I’m happy to post more pics if wanted?
The car has a 5spd manual fitted to it – not sure if that is sacrilege or not to other members on the site – apologies if so.. It does make for a fantastic drive through the Adelaide hills though….
