This is not a Jaguar. It is a Daimler (unless someone put a Daimler grill on a Jaguar). The fluted grill is specific to Daimlers. I suggest renaming the car as "Daimler XJC Convertible". I'm not sure if it is necessary to include "Series II" as all XJC were series II.

As Daimler, it's Sovereign or Double-Six. I think the door proportions and rear side window match a genuine Coupé rather than a butchered saloon, but the top looks cheap and nasty home-made instead of professional build - Avon and Lynx did a few convertibles - eg http://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=28599 , http://car-from-uk.com/sale.php?id=398.

A few of the XJC’s were produced in convertible form by Avon-Stephens coachwork in the UK.

Naming for the Daimler coupes was as follows...

Production volumes (coupes)
Daimler Sovereign 4.2C 1,677
Daimler Double Six C 407

Agreed, dsl it started life as an actual XJC coupe body but like you I think the soft top conversion is not the same quality as the one I listed in the auction example.

edit: There is something wrong I think with the rear quarter glass - the size looks too long to me, it was smaller I think in the coupe. The door glass looks right however.

Its not since the mid-1970s since I saw one but I handled the door and rear quarter glasses on a daily basis when working on them - they were heavier than normal being 5mm thick rather than the normal 4mm, but the rear quarter glass was fairly small.

I couldn't make up my mind about the rear quarter window size, but decided the shape was probably OK. It's also got a much bigger rear window than I'd expect. Given all the problems Jag had to make the Coupe rigid enough, this one probably goes banana-shaped every time the doors are opened ...

After comparing pictures, to find more about the glass areas convertible versus coupe...

[Image: xjcconvertible.jpg]

If the car above on the left is a genuine convertible, possibly by Avon-Stephens coachwork as suggested by the hood fit, they used a smaller rear quarter glass. The convertible in the TV series looks a cheaper conversion with the coupe's glass retained.
