Jaguar Mk X convertible
Jaguar 420 G convertible from 1969
Even a XJ40 has been converted into a 2-door cabriolet.
The concept car Daimler XJ300 Corsica convertible was build
in 1996 by Jaguar to commemorate Daimler’s centenary. It was
named after the 1931 Daimler Double-Six Corsica. The car was a one-off
never intended for production. The Car has made a limited numbers
of appearances at car shows and events. It’s owned by the Jaguar
Daimler Heritage Trust and displayed at the Jaguar museum at Browns
Tomorrows Jaguar convertible?
The focus of this website is the beautiful Jaguar
XJ convertible. Jaguar has never build an open version of the XJ,
but they build the donor car the 2-doors XJC (the coupe version of
the XJ series 2). Then a handful of coach workers around the world
during the years have converted a estimated numbers of 50 into convertibles.
Even a few 4-doors XJ’s has been converted into convertibles.
Some might call it blasphemy converting an original Jaguar into an
estate or convertible, but coach working is in fact an important chapter
of British car history. In general most of the converted cars are
rebuild in great respect to the original design and therefore might
be considered as “the missing link” Jaguar never build
| The ultimate Mrk. II a beautiful convertible
The vision of rebuilding Jaguar salon cars into convertible is
not new, but because the XJC model already was a 2-door model
it was much easier to convert than for example the Mrk. II, the
XJ salon or the XJ300 – but despite the difficulties some
have done it…
Jag-freak from an early age
Jaguar have been the car brand of my dreams, ever since I as a child
in the 60’s grove up in a sleepy suburban 15 km from the center
of Copenhagen (Denmark),. This is thanks to a local car dealer and
collector with a great collection of Jaguars that I quite often visited
in my younger days. In the mid 90’s I had a XJC coupe and today
I’m the lucky owner of one of the rare XJC convertible.
