Harold modified it into a hearse! (and it looked great too)

Then they threw it off a cliff at the end of the movie. Well done!

You already guessed it: The conversion was made for the movie and they just did it once. When you see that scene in the movie, you´ll notice that the picture freezes for a few seconds. People often ask themselves: "WHY did they do that instead of just showing the car falling down continuously? What the hell might be the purpose of that freezed image?"

The simple answer: It was an incident which occured due to a technical failure of one of the cameras (they were all linked to one another). As they only had one Jaguar hearse, they couldn´t do another shot of the Jag falling down the cliff. That´s why they had to leave this slightly injured scene in the film - being lucky that the cameras had not completely ceased recording at that moment. ;)

This should have been a good inspiration for Jaguar to make a splendid "Break de chasse" on E-type chassis (as Volvo 1900 ES or Reliant Scimitar GTE) :love:

It could have inspired this, though: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Jaguar_XJS_Eventer
(Actually I thought there was one, but I was mixing it up with the above.)

I'm not sure if power windows were optional on the '71 XKE because when it shows Bud Cort rolling down the window to stick his head out, It looks like this Jag has power windows, Maybe they were custom fitted to this car or maybe the window cranks on the XKE are so smooth in operation, That it makes it seem like this Jag has power windows, I couldn't see any movements inside that suggest turning a hand crank, So this Jag definitely has power windows it looks like.

I think this is an S1 - none of the small lights and sidemarkers are same as genuine S2. Front bumper is probably genuine S2 but rear looks like S1 front with US chromed oval. S2 should have chrome caps on doors, although maybe these would clash with chrome strip so not diagnostic in this case. Also headlamps look like mid-67 onwards S1 uncovered, without extended chromed S2 housing.

Also wondering what it was for - small kids or pets only?? Hearse bay too short for proper coffins. Despite all the tacky chrome and the clashes between curves and straight edges, it does look quite neat ....

Probably the nicest model of Harold's hearse I've ever seen. And not cheap! Link to "www.hobbydb.com"
