    Car was at R&S auction in '08
    www.russoandsteele.com/collector_car/1964_jaguar_e_type__/7126.html

    Auction description:
    1964 Jaguar E-Type
    VIN: 879616

    It took 8 years and over $200,000 in time and labor to create this unique, award winning, all steel, E-Type Jaguar. It represents an outstanding example of a custom designed and modified classic. While retaining the basic characteristics of the 43 year old automobile, it has been transformed into a beautiful show car.

    The caliber of all the work performed on the "E-Spyder" is the highest quality. Every body panel of the original sports car has had some kind of custom treatment. The entire vehicle is highly detailed and meticulously finished by some of the best craftsman in the classic car business.

    The E-Spyder's body has over 30 modifications including the conversion to a full roadster. Most of the exterior chrome has been removed to give the car a clean, contemporary look. Every hole, seam, bump, or ridge has been removed and filled. The taillights, headlight surrounds and front parking lights are new as is all of the rubber. Latches are chrome plated. A custom grille and beveled glass wind wings were added.

    The cockpit and trunk are upholstered in Italian and German leather. The carpets are Rolls Royce, All of the interior panels were custom designed and manufactured. Classic Instrument gauges were fitted. Polished, water cut stainless steel E-Spyder logos, are inlaid in carpet. Custom arm rests and a Budnik billet aluminum steering wheel was added.

    The 4.2-liter engine's block and head is from a 1986 Jaguar XJ6. All of the engine parts (except the crank) are new. The head and intake manifold was ported and polished. The engine was balanced. It has D-Type
    cams; mirror polished stainless steel exhaust manifolds, pipes and mufflers (custom made in England for the car); new triple SU carburetors; custom Griffin aluminum radiator, shroud and dual electric fans, Mallory distributor, Hi-Torque starter, MSD alternator, American Autowire wiring kit, T5 five speed transmission, billet aluminum fly wheel, 3.31 XJ12 rear end, and lots of polished aluminum and chrome.

    The suspension has been upgraded with stainless steel Alden coil over shocks, heavier torsion bars, Willwood brakes and rotors in the front and Series III E-Type brakes in the rear, new front and rear hubs, stainless steel brake lines, billet aluminum brake and clutch reservoirs, and new rack and pinion steering. Everything under the car has been polished, chromed, powder coated or painted. The nuts, bolts and washers are polished stainless steel or chrome. The Minilite wheels were custom made, polished and painted. They're attached with Aston Martin style three eared knock offs.

    The car was completed in late March 2006. It attended the 2007 Fresno Autorama, an invitation only, non-judged show that is considered to be one of the finest rod and custom shows in the world. It was also at the 2007 Grand National Roadster Show and the Sacramento Autorama where it won Best in Class (Full Custom Sports) in both shows. It has been featured in JCNA's Jaguar Journal (November-December 2006 issue) and The E-Type magazine out of England.

    In the plaque at the top it says the gearbox is original. It's not. It's a Tremec T5. How do I know? I built the car.
