Default Simple Question - Celebration models

So, were all 95 and 96 XJS models celebration models or is there a delineation? I've searched this forum and the net for specific identifiers and I cannot locate any. Sorry if this is a goofy question. I have a 2+2 96 convertible with the 6 cyl 4.0 without seat warmers - only option it doesn't have although the stereo is not great (could be speakers are pouched after 14 - 15 years) and the standard 96 wheels. I really love this car irrespective of tags, but just trying to figure out exactly how these things work.
Thanks for your help

El Gato,

I have the same car. I can't comment on the Celebration thing, but I can tell you that they may not make a replacement speaker for the XJS that won't fit. Several sites limited me to a 2" depth, but I cant figure out why, the cavities go much deeper than that! Also, you will need 5-1/4" diameter speakers. The rear was more of a pain to replace than the front.

I ended up replacing the stock stereo as well as removing the CD Changer.

The speakers were indeed shot. The radio is in fine shape.

Celebration Editions had a half wood steering wheel, wood gear knob and leaper embossed on the seats. Special rims as well.
