1963 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 FHC 3.8 litre - Set up for Vintage racing / slalom / hill climbs etc.
The level of competition preparation is low and does not prevent the car from being used on the road.
When acquired in the '80s from 20 years of storage (I was told) the odometer read about 8,000 miles; I stripped the car down to the last nut and bolt (which were all replaced with grade 12), epoxy dipped the space frames and other metal work, re-painted the car red, disassembled the engine for inspection (all OK but some seals & gaskets brittle from 2 decades of storage), had wire wheels rebuilt with heavy duty spokes and new center splines, installed six point bolt-in roll bar, new shocks (adjustable Spax on front), installed competition clutch, Wilwood front calipers (old ones are available), engine rebuild was to normal standard for a gold top 9:1 cr., All 4 splined hubs replaced with new competition grade units, multi-branch ANSA exhaust manifold, ANSA straight through exhaust system with 4 tail pipes, oil & water catch tanks, etc, etc. New tires in 2012. Includes custom made wool nap lined car cover.
I use the car for 1 or 2 Vintage events every year where it gathers crowds and wins awards just for its appearance.
Wonderfully satisfying car to drive; very fast and a real piece of history. I am retiring so I have to down-size my collection (15 vehicles).
If the buyer has no interest in competition, just un-bolt the roll-over bar, change the big seat belts back to the original ones (included), soften the front shock settings and drive away.
