This numbers matching 1967 Jaguar E-Type has had the same owners (caretakers) for the last 44 years. I wanted a series 1 roadster since childhood and in June of 1976 my then fiance purchased the car in Syracuse N.Y.. I had been a British Leyland apprentice during high school so I knew my way around Jags. It was a daily driver from 1976 to 2009. Our 4 children all grew up knowing that the "Jag" was the oldest sibling in the family. Throughout this time the car was driven, enjoyed,and maintained beyond factory specs. In 1985 I became a Jaguar Master Tech which only enhanced the car's care. In 2009 after 33 years of reliable service I decided to take care of some rust ........well I couldn't just do a patch-up job, not my style and the car is a family member. So 11 years later, every system in this car has been thoroughly gone through, no stone unturned, no expense spared.

The engine and transmission only had 22k so they got a tear down and reseal. Cylinderhead got a decarbonizing, valve lapping and cam bearings. Original calipers were resleeved by White Post Restorations. The rest of the hydrolics are new, including the the clutch master and slave. The front and rear suspention bushings, mounts and fasteners are all new. The final drive unit was completely rebuilt. As far as the electrical system: the gauges were all dismantled inspected cleaned and resealed. Same with all switches, motors, relays and harnesses which were rewrapped in cloth tape. Everything works even the clock. As far as the rust repair, all replacement panels were manufactured by Martin Robey they include: R&L radius arm mounts, R&L lower quarter panels, boot floor, R&L outer sills, R&L door skins, R&L F&R inner sill supports, all 4 bulkhead to frame mounts, R&L heel wells, and left floor. The entire car was brought to bare metal inside and out etched and epoxy primed prior to the panels being welded. This process will delay any corrosion. No plastic filler was used only a product called All Metal was used on seems and repairs. The finish is PPG Concept single stage urethane enamel mix to factory color Pale Primrose.( original color) During the refinishing each panel was painted separately including the bonnet parts. This is good if you ever have to adjust or remove a panel there won't be any chipping, it also is a nice detail. The wheel wells and underside have a final finish of two part epoxy bedliner, extremely durable and cleans easily. The original chrome wasn't bad so..... 5 new Dayton wheels, spinners, and Vredestien tires. Most of the exterior chrome was replated or replaced about 20% is still original. When it comes to the interior there is only one source that provides the closest to original as possible and that is British Auto Specialists. I installed their major kit with a canvas top.(minor change from original) While on the topic of changes, I made a few drivability changes over the years, they are: Lumanition electronic ignition which retains the factory distributor. High volume cooling fan and Ideal hose clamps. Weyland Ram-Flo air filters, Koni shocks, and stainless exhaust. When I started this whole thing it was not my intention to do a "full on fully" but it was just the proper way to do it. Now we have the "Jag" in the most excellent condition. Unfortunatly I'm not.... It's time to let this most amazing machine go to a new home. If you ever dreamed of owning one of these and have the means ...this is the vechicle for you!

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?
