Info gathered with permission from:
875004 was Jaguar's Canada Show car. In one report in the late 1980s, it was said to be very rusty and to be up for sale. Its current location is unknown.

It is my "holy grail" to find this car! If anyone EVER has any idea where it might be please contact me at email@example.com
This car was originally owned by Norm Namerow, the editor and owner of "Canada Track and Traffic" magazine. He immediately raced the car upon receiving it. I believe it may have been the first E-type raced in North America. The first outing for the car was at St. Eugene, Ontario. He was told be the Jaguar factory not to race the car because the rear hubs would break (folklore) and apparently that is exactly what happened to the car.
The car was then sold the legendary Canadian racer and car builder David Greenblatt (do a google search under "Dailu") who further raced the car. Dave told me that he modified the car considerably during his ownership. He sold it in the mid-late 1960's and it has not been seen since. Dave told me that he made a concerted effort to find the car in the 1980's but could find no trace of it. He cannot recall who he sold it to.
I'm still looking for it!

Still looking. Absolutely no trace of it.
Dave Greenblatt passed away a couple of years ago. He was the 'last link' to where the car ended up. He could not recall who he sold it to. One thing is for sure: the car had been raced and modified for racing extensively by the time Greenblatt sold it in the mid-late 1960's.
I'm not sure where the rumour "said to be for sale and very rusty' came from. I first saw this reference 25+ years ago in a publication by Dr. Thomas Haddock. Tried to contact him to substantiate by no luck. Who knows?
As of today, absolutely no sign of it.

So most likely not matching anymore, right?! Even normal road cars suffered from weak or missing oil piston rings as far as I understood. And many had a severe engine damage. Race cars most likely had blown off already the first engine?!
Would also be curious to know the whereabouts.....
