Truly a car that is all about the story with extensive documentation back to the initial purchase. This is the best documented car I have ever owned.


Runs perfect. shifts and stops perfect.


Show car - Restored to the highest standards.


Refinished wood. new leather interior to original specifications. new carpet (Wilton wool). New headliner. Painted in original color with glass out and body stripped of all trim and paint. New windshield and seal. new rear window seal. new door seals. Excellent chrome. new tires. new fuel pump. carburettors rebuilt. New rings. New bearings and polished cams/crank. fully serviced. rebuilt generator. rebuilt regulator. re-cored radiator. stainless exhaust.


This was never a rusty car. it has no rust and it has no filler. There are no patch panels either. The body is 100% original steel as is the floor pan.


The history on this particular car is very interesting. It was originally purchased at the jaguar factory in England for $3845. 00 or 1858. 00pds. I still have the original British licence plate and all documentation including approximately 20 letters of correspondence between the original owner and the factory for parts up to 1975.  Also with the car are extensive service invoices from the early sixties through a few years ago. The original owner was in the employ of the CIA in early 57' and was sent to the UK for a six month stint. He flew in and went straight to the factory in Coventry to pick up the car he had ordered. The car was this exact 1957 MK1 in the exact colors and spec of the brochure. which is also included and had been underlined and written on by him. He must have been comparing models. Of particular interest was the fuel consumption and tank capacity apparently as well as the tire size and ground clearance. The specification was SE package. Leather. 2. 4. Manual and Left hand drive. He must have expected to send the car back to the US when he was finished with his work in the country. I know nothing about his mission in the country. only what is documented here and that he left the country before the car did. The car was stored near the Docks of Southhampton at the British Railways garage under some company name accumulating a bill around 200pds. It was eventually sent back to the US on the SS United States under a different name then licensed in the US under his. He kept this car until his passing in the early nineties and from reading his correspondence with the factory maintained the car to a standard second to none.  


This is a real life "Man From U. N. C. L. E. " car. It drives out wonderfully. starts with a flip of the key and everything works as expected. There will be no disappointments with this car.
