Really nice Jaguar XJS convertible finished in Slate grey (charcoal metallic) with dove grey leather interior and only 66,000 miles. The whole car is in overall very nice clean condition.  This is a limited production Hess & Eisenhardt (1 of 893 cars built). Hess & Eisenhardt built these convertibles under contract from Jaguar from 1986 thru to 1988, this being one of the last. The open roof styling of these cars with a very “flat appearance” is considered a lot more attractive than the later Jaguar built convertibles.  This is the 5.3-litre V12 HE engine which factory delivered some 270HP in the US. This cars seems to have been “horse-power improved” delivering considerable more get up and go than a typical XJS (read below).  The interior of this example is lovely with everything presenting clean and tidy. The seats are perfect which is unusual for the XJS as typically they are dry, hard and cracked. The leather is original and nice without any stains, tears or rips There are no cracks in the dash top, console or armrests, the carpets and headliner are clean. The burl walnut wood throughout is very nice with only some hairline cracking in the clear finish on the passenger side dash and around the gear shifter. Those on the doors are like brand new. The interior truly presents very nice and needs nothing for daily driving and enjoyment.  The paint is in great overall condition with only very minor imperfections. It is very shiny and consistent and presents perfectly for driver use. This is a Michigan car for the last 10 years that has never seen snow or salt. There is no under body rust or scale whatsoever – please see underside pix at the photo link provided. The car is completely accident free. On a scale out of 10, I would rate the body a 10 and the paint as an easy 9.
