      Picked up my car today finally! Drove it to the mechanics for an initial once over.

      I’m already loving it even though it needs a looooot of work.

      Interesting car.

      Vin says it’s a XJS HE Couoe – built in 1982, delivered in 1983 in Glasgow, and it has a soft top. I assume this car is a very early factory Cabriolet.

      It has the roof cross member and the rear windows don’t move. It has rear seats.

      Any thoughts ? How early did they build these?

      Going to fully restore the car – here we go!

      Hi Mark

      Whilst it’s true that all the Jaguar built Cabriolet’s started life on the factory floor as Coupes they were all registered as Cabriolets – we have the range of VIN Numbers for these.

      A number of companies converted Coupes themselves into early Convertible and some as Cabriolets (using Jaguar parts).

      I’d be interested to see some photos of your car, and see what we can find out for you about its history.
