After the popular E-Type, Jaguar took a departure from the sports car convertible design and launched a series of luxury grand tourers that were based on the XJ line. The XJ-S was a popular model, but only had a XJSC cabriolet targa and did not have an official convertible in the 1986 to 1988 year range, so Jaguar contracted Car Craft and Hess & Eisenhardt (H&E) versions that converted the XJ-S (later called the XJS) into convertibles. They did quite well in the effort and the H&E conversion's unpadded top folded down deeper into the body than the later XJS model convertibles produced by Jaguar in 1989.
Here is what TopsOnline customers are saying...

Beautiful! It is on and looking so good. Really improved the looks of my beautiful 1991 Miata.. I did have a vinyl top on and wanted the canvas. It went on well, looks really great.....Thank you for a nice product.
