This rare Jaguar XKE Series 1 flat-floor, fixed-head coupe was originally dispatched on October 12, 1961, and delivered to its original owner, A.S. Flagg of Los Angeles, CA, on December 15, 1961. This is a very early flat-floor fixed-head example and it is one of the 51 transitional flat-floor coupes built by Jaguar immediately after ceasing production of the outside catch bonnet but prior to production of the dropped wheel wells, which were adopted in March 1962. It is one of 40 produced with boot and door latches (later models utilized machined latches). This is one of three coupes produced in Cream, one of one which includes tinted glass. The vehicle was sold to its prior owners in Atlanta, GA, in the early '70s. The owner decided to remove the original engine, installing a small-block Ford power plant; however, the original engine still remained with the car. The current collectors procured this flat-floor coupe and decided the proper thing to do was to bring it back to its original state. A three-year, nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration was performed to JCNA standards and was completed in 2015. Over $250,000 was spent on the restoration. Since its restoration, this car has earned many accolades, including the Hilton Head Motoring Festival and the Concours of the Americas at St. Johns (formerly Meadowbrook), where it earned awards in both classes. The 3.8-liter engine is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission.

This rare 1961 Jaguar XKE Series 1 Flat Floor Fixed Head Coupe was originally dispatched on October 12, 1961 and delivered to its original owner, A.S. Flagg of Los Angeles, California on December 15, 1961 as documented in its Heritage Certificate.

It is a very early Flat Floor Fixed Head Coupe, and is one of a reported 51 "transitional" flat floor coupes built by Jaguar immediately after ceasing production of the

outside catch bonnet but prior to production of the dropped heel wells, which were adopted in March 1962. It is one of 40 produced with hand produced boot and door latches (later automobiles utilized machined latches). This is one of three coupes produced in cream, and one of one produced with this option package which includes tinted glass.

This vehicle was sold to its prior owner in Atlanta, Georgia in the 1970s. The owner decided to remove the original engine, installing a small block Ford engine. The owner passed away in 2011, and the car was left sitting in his basement.

The current owners' restoration expert located the car with the intent of utilizing the body as a "donor" car for another "E" Type restoration; however, upon purchasing the vehicle, it was determined that this was a very early flat floor cope, with its numbers matching engine remaining with the car.

An almost three year nut and bolt restoration to JCNA standards was commenced in 2012 and was completed in late 2015. The restoration started with media blasting the body back to bare metal. All rust was removed and both floor pans and the trunk pan were replaced. Additional reinforcements were welded into the rocker boxes to further stiffen the body. A new front sub-frame was installed. The entire drivetrain was rebuilt by a Jaguar master technician who apprenticed in the Jaguar factory in the 1960s. A correct full interior was sourced from Suffolk & Turley in England and virtually every part was either rebuilt (carbs, gauges, etc.) or replaced with high quality new parts. The entire restoration was photo documented and invoices totaling over $220,000 USD will be provided.

Since its restoration, this car has received several major Concours awards including a Lion Award at the Concours of the Americas at St. John (formerly the Meadowbrook Concours) and a Best in Class at the 2017 Hilton Head Motoring Festival. The car has been invited to the prestigious Amelia Island Concours in March 2018, where it won Best in the Jaguar E-Type Class.

Price: $275,000

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?
