I have a 67 OTS that came in boxes. I is almost complete but I need to look at one similar to mine so I can figure out where certain parts go. Would you be willing to allow me to take pictures of your car (engine compartment?)
Thanks

Car to be at auction 1/14
www.bonhams.com/auctions/21392/lot/161/

Auction description:
Lot 161
1965 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2-Liter Fixed Head Coupe
US$ 90,000 - 120,000
€65,000 - 87,000
Chassis no. 1E31482
Engine no. 7E5162-9

*Matching numbers example
*Professionally restored
*Finished in the original color combination
*A long-time California 'black plate' car
*Offered with Heritage Trust Certificate

This very fine E-Type Fixed Head Coupe was finished at Jaguar's Coventry works during the latter part of 1965, benefiting from the upgraded, fully synchronized transmission and the larger 4.2-liter XK engine. It was built just like it appears today, a left hand drive model painted in the striking Opalescent Silver Blue metallic color and trimmed in black Connolly leather.

Like many E-Types, this car was destined for the United States, where a Mr. Johnson Peltier of Los Angeles, California became the first owner in December of 1965. The blue E-Type is believed to have remained in Mr. Peltier's possession for decades, before finding a new home in the San Pedro, California area in 2004. It would remain in Southern California until 2008, when the E-Type traded hands and went to the Jaguar experts at Classic Showcase for a thorough refurbishment. As a genuine, black-plate California car, the Jaguar was reported to have been in low mileage, largely original shape, still retaining its original engine and drive train, and showing no evidence of accidents or rust.

The work performed by Classic Showcase included a repaint in the car's original original color, a refurbishment of the engine, the transmission, and installation of a new clutch. Furthermore, the E-Type received a new interior with restored seats, new carpets, new headliner and door panels. A new exhaust system was installed, and new suspension rubber fitted with extra attention given to the rear differential and braking system. Photos of the restoration are available in the car's history file, as is a copy of the Heritage Trust Certificate, which confirms its original specification.

A wonderful example of the legendary Jaguar E-Type, the Fixed Head Coupe represents the purest form of the model. This matching numbers car, having enjoyed the loving care of just a few long-term Southern California owners from new, must be one of the best examples available today.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
