Seller's description:
Our Jaguar E Type 3,8L Fixed Head Coupé was delivered new in the States in February 1963 to Mr and Mrs Garlock. It stayed there most of its life before reaching the UK where a very ambitious restoration was started. Over 2 years it has been painstakingly prepared to ultimate fast road specifications with a specific attention to period esthetic and improved comfort for rallies and long-distance run. An impressive file of pictures and invoices* describes the great work achieved by some of the best Jaguar specialists such as Guy Broad, Pendine Works, Project shop…
The result is a car that would for sure drive you fast to the lawns of a selective concourse where it would be noticed…even driven hard and covered with dead flies.

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?
