I purchased the car from Auto Collectors Garage in Houston, Texas in November 2008. The car has receipts for over $24,000 for work undertaken to bring it back to a nice driver level following its 11 year ownership from the previous owners. Car was bought and cleaned up for re-sale by Auto Collectors Garage. The engine area has been completely detailed. New porcelain on headers, cylinder head removed an new hardened seats valves etc. etc. etc. Car is very nice and original however the paint work has some chips in a few places. Extra fan installed on the front of the stone guard to aid in cooling for our hot Florida summers. Interior leather on the seats is new as are the carpets. Steering wheel original but needs some work at the wood is split. Car has 37,700 miles from new and has minimal rust issues. Most of the mechcanical restoration / rebuilding work is of a good quality, but some of the minor attention to detail work has been poorly finished by a previous owner. All in all a very clean, solid and original example ready to hit the roads and be driven.

1E30214 looks like it was manufactured in November 1964......... and was the 214th LHD 4.2 FHC off the production line. It is registered as a 1965 with its Texas title. Quite a rare car indeed. I will apply for a heritage certificate to see if this info is correct.

I had taken the car for a first major road test since receiving it and I was very impressed with the smooth engine, great middle range torque and fantastic 76.5 degree tempurature (ran a digital thermometer check up). Oil pressure gauge claims 50lbs and I have not checked that yet as I see no need to...... no oil leaks from engine area. No rattles, squeaks or groans to report from the car or me for that matter. One disappointment was that the rear hubs seals were obvioulsy shot when I was sold the car and after the road test I need to replace both of those for each rear hub with a complete new set and clean off all the grease from the previously detailed under-carriage. All the replacement parts have since been purchased from Xk's Unlimited and waiting for a quiet weekend to take off the hubs and install them. There was a small gas leak in the pipe joins around the fuel tank area which has also been addressed. Just in case, I will take out the gas tank and check it thoroughly over that long weekend..........................
Bill - I am looking for a larger garage with a smaller house attached and the wife is looking for me to sell a car..........

Well good news and the long weekend which evolved into a month has finally come to an end. The fuel leak was just a perished rubber fuel hose right where it was affixed to the fuel tank. Therefore, it was just a quick replacement pipe and new breather pipe and hey presto............. fuel leak fixed. We did take the fuel tank out for inspection and it was surprisingly very clean. I assume the previous owner must have done the right thing after its long storeage. Phew !
The rear seals were replaced, as were the rear bearings (better to be safe than sorry) and the half drive shafts were replaced due to historic grease monkey cross threading issues. So another $1K plus dollars in parts and labor and this CAT drives like a dream !

A new low pressure facet fuel pump was installed at the beginning of June 2009 and it has made a huge difference. Fuel tank clean as a whistle........ this cat now roars along.
