Todays snippet of useless information.
Whilst trying to locate the last of the missing 100 Cabriolets and having realised, there was no possibility of starting at the beginning again. I came across a dusty old box of XJS Body sheets, so a quick search, well about 7 days ,looking for anything with 5V or 5Y. The missing Vins were soon located and, I established that the following body #’s were never assigned, so there was originally going to be 5,036 Cabriolets in total.
Body numbers exceeded VIN’s by 23 – 20 X V12 & 3 X 3.6
