The history of my Jag XJS can be explained as mine was a manual Cabriolet and the American market wanted automatic convertibles so they did not sell. Mine had to be factory converted from a LHD to RHD to sell in this country. WithDevon general andy wrote: ↑Wed Jun 15, 2022 12:31 pmHi Tewy,
so you are the proud owner of another potential fine beast?
You were querying the 'G' on the number plate?
Well I think I'm right in saying that August 1989 to the end of July 1990 is within the 'G' plate registration window. Then from August 1990 the 'H' prefix would be on the plate. If your newly acquired Cub was registered January to July 1990 then it would be on a 'G'.
Is this what you were meaning or have I got the 'wrong end of the stick' ?
Regarding your Jag. When new, it was probably left unregistered in a dealership showroom for three years before being of my registered? Years ago dealers didn't like to register cars before they were sold. Sometimes they would register them and not sell them that year and then have a problem with the price. The new buyer wanted the new reg letter to show off. They didn't want to pay new car prices with last years 'old' letter!
Anyway good luck with your new Cub.
regards to this C90 I am not sure why it was advertised as a 1986 model. It just shows that you need to check online the MOT history to see certain facts.
