Sellers description:
This car was manufactured in July 1962 and sold to a U.S. serviceman stationed in West Germany. This car is very original to the day it was manufactured. The original 3.8 liter engine runs strong with very good oil pressure. Last Fall I had Scott and Skip Shelly at S & S Specialties perform some work on the car to keep it in excellent running condition. The SU carburetors were rebuilt. The front brakes were rebuilt with stainless piston linings and a new master cylinder was installed. The steering column was rebuilt to replace the felts. This gives it the proper firm feel. The plugs, points, rotor and distributor have been replaced in the last year. The starter and fuel pump have been replaced in the past several years. It still has the original oil filter assembly. I considered changing to the newer style modification to allow for screw-on filters, but I actually became good at getting the gasket to stay in place and have had very minimal leaks from the filter. The original hard top is included. The original convertible top cover is included. It has the early aluminum interior trim. The passenger foot rest is also included. (This was usually the first thing lost.) There is no rust on this car. The original radio was replaced before I purchased the car. The radio works fine, but the rumble of the exhaust is better music. The interior is not leather. It looks great, but leather is proper. There are several features in this beautiful e-type that are unique to the European and German market. The steering column includes a locking mechanism with the original key. (I have never tried to lock it.) The wheel hub caps are wingless and the original brass wrench is included. These look similar to later E-Types, but are specific to cars shipped to Germany in 1962. The engine serial number denotes that 8:1 compression pistons were original with this car. This was because high octane gasoline was hard to get in West Germany in 1962. After being imported to the USA 9:1 pistons were installed. I purchased this car in September 1990. It has been a very enjoyable car to own and drive. It turns heads everywhere. My daughter even noticed that "Dad, everyone looks at us." She's eight.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
