This unique XJS 4.0 features a professional conversion to a hatchback making it even more of a practical grand tourer. The owner of the car was a Homologation Manager at Jaguar and had been intending to produce such a design since 1981. Starting in 2008 he spent two years studying the car to ensure his idea was safe and strong. The actual conversion was completed by Jaguar specialist James Sidwell Classic Cars involving 55 hours of labour. Constructed around an MGB GT rear screen, a high-level brake light is incorporated whilst the rear lid blends perfectly with the buttresses which are so intrinsic a feature of the bodywork. The car comes with a photographic record of the works and detailed drawings of the design. With some 119,500 miles recorded on its odometer, it registers five former keepers and has been subject to a previous overhaul of the braking system. The interior has also been retrimmed in Doeskin leather by GB Classic Trim who split the rear seats at the same time. Offered with its book pack, handbooks and service books (containing 20 stamps), cherished registration mark ’30 OXJ’ and an original set of four 16" Jaguar alloy wheels (the car now riding on 18” alloys) plus an MOT certificate into September 2022.
