VERY ORIGINAL ……..3 owner car…..! The 2nd owner owned the car for 38 years.

Rebuilt engine, transmission, and clutch by Larry Ligas of Predator Performance in 2022. 

The following mechanical components rebuilt or replaced: aluminum radiator, radiator surge tank, starter, fan, oil pressure gage, alternator, fuel pump, brakes, brake and clutch master cylinders, steering seals, modern twist off oil filter assembly, etc. etc. all done in 2022.

Interior in exceptional condition with mostly original components.

New stainless exhaust and stainless header pipes in 2022.

Chrome britework in perfect condition with no pitting or blemishes or flaking of any kind.

Original steering wheel and radio.

Includes all original tools, correct vintage jack and hammer, owners hand books, owners maintenance books. Also, custom made wool seat covers that have been used for the past 35 years to protect the leather seats. Many misc. Jaguar books will be included.

ALL original parts that were replaced during the rebuild are included with the car. Original oil filter assembly, radiator, radiator surge tank, generator, fan, original spare tire and wheel in addition to a new one, etc. 

I purchased this amazing car from the 2nd owner who owned it for 38 years and had the car judged at JCNA judging events for 12 consecutive years. It was his intent to keep the car ALL original. Even keeping the original DC radio. In 1984 he had the car repainted it's original carmen red with a laquer color/clear coat system. This is the only repaint this car has seen and this is the paint you see today. The paint is 40 years old and looks exceptional today. There are a few spots that show some minor blistering but overall the paint has held up amazingly well.

Shortly after I bought the car I trailered it to Sarasota, FL and had the engine rebuilt by Larry Ligas of Predator Performance. Larry rebuilt the engine, the transmission, and replaced the clutch. Larry has rebuilt well over 400 E-type engines in his life time and is considered one of the leading authorities on E-type engines. Larry is a very competitive racer with his heavily modified 1961 E-type Jaguar and he knows all the tricks when rebuilding these engines. He used all of the best components while rebuilding this car and no money was spared during this rebuild.

The number face plates on the side of the car are soft magnetic numbers and can be removed if so desired. I have taken a few pictures with these decals removed. The car comes complete with a wide assortment of books, manuals, trophies and awards, and 12 years of judging sheets from the 12 years of JCNA judging. If you are looking for a solid, very original E-type coupe, this is the car. I had the oil and filter changed last week as I have driven the car about 2000 miles since the rebuild and we did not see any oil drips or leaks on the underside of the car. A matter of fact I park the car on a clean garage floor without any oil drip pans or cardboard sheets…..LOL.

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?
