    Vehicle Details

    Restoration Project

    Our E-type is a first year production car that should be titled as a 1961. Cars entering California the first year were titled as 1962s. This is a very early car, number 305 produced off the line making this a highly collectible model to own. In addition, it has the very rare outside bonnet latches that were made in extremely limited numbers to the early production cars, making it a very unique model.

    This E-type is partially apart on a dolly, some parts are in boxes while some are in the car. The front end has been removed and has been replaced with a temporary dolly. It has flat floors, a welded louvered bonnet, matching numbers, and is 98% complete. This car has been in an accident. The winning bidder should be someone willing to put in extra time to bring this car to the condition in deserves; as the body will require quite a bit of attention. This XKE is VERY worth while as a restoration project!

    Please Note: One seat is missing, the pillar chrome by the windshield is missing along with the bottom chrome of the windshield. "

    I discovered some correspondence I had with the owner as of 1999. The car at that point need complete restoration. One interesting note was some typical Jaguar "dyslexia" in the engine number. The plate was stamped as above but the cylinder head was stamped 1431. The owner was in Torrence CA at that time.
