Matching number XKE open two seater with the 3.8 liter engine, being sold for restoration. It is a matching number car and it rolls and steers. The carburetors, tools and jack are missing. The car was originally white with a red interior. We have a clear title for the car. Sorry no Jaguar Heritage Certificate.

1963 Team CJ Lightweight E Type (MW)
This matching numbers 1963 Series One E Type is being restored as a Team CJ lightweight alloy roadster in the style of the 1963 factory lightweight racing E Types. It will be finished in Opalescent Gunmetal over Dark Tan hides.
The car will feature an aluminum monocoque, complete with alloy bonnet, doors, boot lid and hardtop. Suspension anchor points are reinforced with steel. The original matching number engine will be rebuilt to Team CJ Stage Two specifications, featuring a wide angled head and stroked to 4.2L. It will be conservatively rated at 350 HP and 370 ft/lbs of torque on unleaded pump gas.
Time to tear down the donor car and harvest the parts we need for this Team CJ Lightweight E Type.
This car features a lightweight aluminum monocoque with chromium molybdenum engine subframes and steel reinforced suspension anchor points.
Just how much does a fully assembled Team CJ Lightweight E Type body weigh?
Setting aside some of the components for the Stage Two engine. The build will feature a billet crankshaft (stroked to 4.2L), forged Carrillo rods, ultra-light forged pistons, a high output billet oil pump and a 12lb Team CJ billet steel flywheel.
I am pleased to report that we now have your wide angled head in hand so we will be pushing ahead with your Stage Two rebuild over the next few weeks. We have also been busy modifying your front control arms and rear wishbones, and have continued gathering together all the various parts that will be used in the project.
IRS components have been media blasted and powder coated, front suspension Nickel plated...
The following sequence of photographs show Matt starting to assemble and install the roll cage, the Suffolk & Turley tan hide we chose to trim the seats, and corrective work done to the wide angled cylinder head. The last two photos show the carbon fiber driveshaft.
