This beauty is my pride and joy. I purchased my 1963 Jaguar XKE Series 1 Coupe from a long-time friend of the family who had stored the car for over 26 years in a California garage. I agree with Enzo Ferrari when he said the E-Type is the most beautiful car in the world. In order to bring this amazing car back to life, I contracted for a complete ground-up, full nut and bolt restoration which took over 3 years and an investment of over $300,000. Since the original engine was replaced earlier with a 4.2-litre motor from a 1964 E-Type, I decided that my car would be a "Driver" rather than a pure "Trailer Queen". No expense was spared in order to fulfill this objective. I upgraded the standard 4-speed transmission with a full-synch 5 speed, added air-conditioning, a modern radio, updated the ignition system with all electronic parts, and thoroughly rebuilt the engine. The car is painted British Racing Green with a Biscuit leather interior. Needless to say, this car is in concourse condition. Restoration progress was recorded at http://ragtops.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=3360
The car is located in Las Vegas, NV. All documentation is available as well additional pictures.
