A life-long E-Type nut, the dream of owning one of Jaguar's most legendary models eventually became a reality when the vendor found the offered Jag for sale in New York in 1996. Manufactured on March 31, 1972 and finished in British Racing Green over Suede Green hides and delivered new to New York, this Jag had lived a life of regular use in the north eastern part of the country. Powered by a Chevy V8 at the time of purchase, the seed was planted and the car was bought with the intention of bringing it back to its former glory. Immediately following acquisition, a two and a half year complete and no expense spared restoration was begun.

Tearing the car down to bare metal, all evidence of rust and rot was attended to and repaired with metal. The entire floor pan of the roadster as well as the driver and passenger doors were replaced with correct pieces from Martin Robey in the UK. New Old Stock (NOS) parts were used whenever possible and correct replacements were fitted if NOS items could not be sourced. A correct specification V12 was also located and installed with mechanical fettling carried out by Donovan Motorcar's Brian Donovan in Lenox, Massachusetts. It should be noted that while the engine is not the one with which the car was delivered, a new firewall mounted chassis plate showing the current engine number has been fitted.

After 800 hours of work, 300 of which were spent on final body work and painting, and receipts totaling $96,343.06, the finished E-Type rolled out of the shop in 1999 looking much like it must have when it left the factory in Coventry. The objective of the restoration was to produce a sound and gorgeous car to use and drive. Even still, when entered in shows it has fared well scoring 91.46 points in JCNA judging when it was evaluated in August of 1999.

Since its restoration 16 years ago, the car has been treated to regular maintenance and servicing by Donovan Motorcar and Boston Sports Car in Weston, Massachusetts. Records show that a further 97.5 hours of labor and $21,714.05 keeping this gem looking as good today as when it was restored.

Showing beautifully in its classic color scheme of British Racing Green over tan leather, the car is accompanied by all of its service history, receipts and records documenting the restoration and maintenance over the past 18 years. Photos and a few short films add to the documentation of the restoration.

After nearly two decades in the care of a single owner, it is now time to move on to its next, enthusiastic keeper.
