How does the XJS coding work? This is the third version of the XJS, you can tell by the rear lights.

I worked on both vehicles at firstly Browns Lane and then the Jaguar Engineering Centre and XJ27 was code for all the coupés and XJ77 was for the full convertible developed with a Karmann soft top (but not the Cabriolet conversion by Tickford).

No - Tickford the traditional coachbuilders located in Newport Pagnall, England. Bought by Aston Martin in the 1940s or 50s, but before that had done some special bodies on UK sports cars (eg as far as I know Bentley, Lagonda, Frazer-Nash, Lea-Francis etc). Various more Aston Martin and Lagonda coachbuilt under AM ownership (eg the 1980ish Bulldog concept, luxury bespoke 1980s Lagondas), and then some luxury specials in 1980s eg Tickford Capri/Calibra/Frazer Metro - turbos, wood and leather trim, posh paint, spoilers and bling wheels etc. Also operated an industry consultancy to develop special projects eg the XJS Cabriolet here, the MG Maestro Turbo, the [cancelled] road version of the RS200 for homologation and the first Focus RS, as well as the UK-only Lancia Beta Hi-fi coupe, a mildly pimped edition to clear unsold UK stocks over a year after Lancia production had stopped. When BL abolished MG in late 70s, Victor Gauntlett (AM chairman) wanted to use Tickford to produce a relaunched and updated MGB, but discussions failed. Now independent of AM after a management buyout and still operating for consultancy development projects.

Now I see.

I thought Tickford was an Australian company that make Australian Fords, especially since I first learned about the comany since Gran Turismo 3 on PS2(Playstation 2).

Ughh, too many numbers and letters to remember.

All I know is XJ220 which is the Super Car Jaguar along with the XJR-15.

And the S-Type

Tickford did indeed have a joint venture with Ford Australia. See Link to "en.wikipedia.org"

I've read it.

So TickFord Australia is (or was) like a performance car division.

Hadn't realised there was an Aus offshoot. I guess the motives were to create production runs to homologate upgrades for the Bathurst 1000kms saloon car race; it's probably not a coincidence that Holden developed a similar relationship with TWR (Tom Walkinsaw Racing - famous for racing Jaguars and other projects) at about the same time.

I recognize that car, the taillights in the back are like inserted in the back almost. While the front the car almost resemble an early 1990's Eagle Talon.

It was sold in the states as the Mercury Capri in the early nineties.
