Info gathered with permission from: www.hendi.nl/xke/main.htm
875026 is one of "Cunningham's Three." It, along with 875015 and 875027 where delivered to Cunningham as a group. It was originally registered 9024 DU in the UK, and was sold as a 'demonstrator" with a "couple thousand" miles on it through Walt Hansgen's New Jersey dealership. Recently published information on its sister car, 875027, state that Jaguar records indicate that it, too, was assumed to be a 'demo." The first owner took the car to Delaware, and in 1972, it was sold to another owner in Delaware. At this point the mileage was reportedly somewhere in the 40,000 die range. In 1973 the car was sold to the third owner, who took it to Michigan, where it has resided since.

The car is also mentioned in the March '82 issue of Ejag magazine. Partial text " Tom's earliest E-typ[e is also the first one on the list: serial number 875109. This red roadster was sold new on the East Coast and was once delivered to Briggs Cunningham for sale. Tom became its third owner in 1973. Now the car is kept in storage and not driven but it is in close to original condition and has only 50,000 miles or so on it.

Tom dated my sister in this time period. After he bought the car it resided in my father's garage in Wilmington, DE for a few weeks before he rented a U-Haul and drove it back to Michigan. If memory serves me correctly the original tires were located and went with the car back to MI. The only thing that wasn't original to the car was the fuel pump, a local British car 'expert' kludged an external pump on the car, something that was corrected immediately. Sadly Tom and my sister parted ways, I really liked him.
