HERES ALL THE INFO ON WHY THIS HESS AND EISENHARDT EDITION IS SO SPECIAL:Hess & Eisenhardt convertible[edit]

From 1986 a full convertible version was available through some dealers. modified by Hess & Eisenhardt in the USA. The Hess & Eisenhardt coachbuilding firm was located in Ohio. USA. and built about 893 of these cars under contract from Jaguar before the official Jaguar-built XJS full convertible appeared in 1988.

The Hess & Eisenhardt convertible differed from the later Jaguar convertible XJS as its unpadded top folded down deeper into the body structure of the car resulting in a cleaner rear profile when the roof was lowered. To accommodate this design element. the Hess & Eisenhardt convertibles have two separate fuel tanks. positioned to allow for the roof to fully retract. The process of converting the stock Jaguar XJS coupe into the H&E Convertible included the post-production removal of the roof. cutting the body in several sections. the addition of steel reinforcements behind the driver's seat. and 20 lb (9. 1 kg) weights placed just behind the headlights to eliminate harmonic resonance caused by the significant modifications to the car. H&E XJS convertibles are easily identified by the lower folding top. as well as two small badges located just behind the front wheels. The later Jaguar full convertible had a heavier padded top that did not fold into as small a bundle when in the lowered position. but retained nearly all of the original components of the coupe.

The number of H&E Jaguar XJS produced is unknown. partly because a fire at the Hess & Eisenhardt factory destroyed most of the records pertaining to the Jaguar XJS conversions.
