The car has featured in two magazine articles Jaguar World June 1999, and Top Car September 1992. (And has had numerous owners, and number plates fitted over the years).

The new old stock doors test fitting prior to finally sand blasting the car body. Intentions are for the car to look like Reg NPH 913P and PEN 50 above (which are this car) which have the correct period XJC S2 doorhandles.

A long way off but any thought’s on me fitting a period correct XJ S2 V12 grille blacked out instead of the S3?

Wow, jag53c a fantastic find! Did you come across the car recently, or have you owned it for a while? Looks like the body is in fair condition? Is this one XKW836? Oh, lucky to find NOs doors, well done! I’m understand Lister created 5 XJCs, 1 of them had an AJ16 6 cylinder, 4 of them were V12s. One of the V12s is in Norway I believe (with standard width wings) the AJ16 engined Car (standard width wings) is up north being restored the 3rd is slowly being restored in the London area and during restoration has been converted to a wide winged body. If you are lucky enough to have XKW836, the only car not found is PEN50/ NPH913P. Are you based in the south east?
I look forward with great interest the progress with your car and wish you all the best. Please, please keep me posted!

Clouder yes I have owned the car now for a number of years basically waiting for the coupe market to pick up enough to make a comprehensive restoration viable. On the Lister Conversions list that I have their are 4No coupes mentioned, mine being Chassis Number 018LJC.

I can also 100% confirm the 3No number plates you refer to have at one time or another been fitted to this car. Therefore you have just found three of the coupes you are looking for in one?

I would love to know who currently owns Lister XJC reg JAG 67L. I saw this black car parked in Guildford circa 1990 and it looked fantastic.

My car is currently being restored by a Jaguar Specialist in the Surrey area.

So it's not a keeper? You are restoring it in order to sell it?

I’ve owned V12 coupes for 30 years so it will be nice to enjoy this one for a bit before selling on.

As my personal tribute to the XJC. I think the car deserves the correct period XJC S2 grille to be fitted once it has been black chromed, in lieu of the S3 that was currently fitted. Let’s see what it looks like when done to finally decide?

I share this image courtesy of Clouder many thanks to you. I especially like the period S2 Jaguar badge. But I think it should be done in black chrome now.

Hi,
I am wondering if there would be any interest in me attempting to put together a little potted history of the Lister Coupes, as best I know.
It may not end up 100% complete as there would be holes, but by doing this it may provoke discussion and more history may come out of the woodwork?
