I think it was called a Railton. (There was a prewar Railton very much in the style of a Jensen, with a big American engine).

It does not look to bad but for those headlights. Otherwise a bit bland, but fairly neat.

My word, that really is hideous. The hard top version looked "OK" but, this drop-top.... :shock:

completley agree Martin. It looks slightly less hideous when it loses the dreadful rear wheel cowl (excuse the crude cut & paste):

They somehow look quite different although similar but, I stand by my comment that the blue one is hideous.
It's possibly marginally better with Andy's cut and past removal of the rear wheel cover...

..and in the case of the Citroen DS, a beautiful car with beautifully executed wheel covers!

I believe the little slits for the headlights were for use at night, during the blitz.

I have an XJS as a daily driver, and will definitely not be converting over.
