After the fire , Jaguar, inspired by Hess und Eissenhardt , started the production of convertibles themselfes.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 tanksThe car can be viewed and picked up in Holten, Netherlands.This is a used vehicle.
