Back Ground to the car.
The car was initially sold by a dealership in Rossliegh. dinburgh in 1967 then spending most of it's life in the Northwest
The car then passing through 6 more keeper when in 1989. the modifications to the bonnet including de seaming the bonnet. modifying the front and rear arches to take wider wheel s. the removal of the chrome to achieve the streamlined appearance . he car then was then sold again in 1995 the car then having only two more keepers in the last 17 years. he last keeper a Wrexham garage proprietor owning her for 13 years . urchasing the car from H&H Classic car auction at Buxton . s he said saw the car and thought wow! The beauty of the shape in pure simplicity .
6 years ago he took her off the road to carryout work to the vehicle including replacing the drivers floor section . e then decided to do the passenger side as well along with lots of other mechanical work. and fit the wide D Type Alloy Knock on's due to pressure of work the E type had take a back seat and remained in storage. albeit properly look after waxoyled. nbsp; wheels off. ater drained . ngine oiled and turned over regulary. and stored in a dehumidified environment.
It was to stay like this until I came on the scene!

It was quite amazing actually. when we fitted the engine ancillaries . verhauled the carbs . uel. il and watered her . itted the battery. first push of the ignition button after six years dormant she stared first time!
So condition of the car.
I will be as critical as I can . /span>
Just one word' lovely ! considering some 46 years old. she is excellent . the door shut lines the “A” Pillars /”B” Slams . loor sections . ills ( inner and outer)front spider frames . oors . ear wings . alances. bulkheads . ll excellent . n fact the only thing that I can see is a slight little mark on the bonnet bulge . ut nothing that really detracts from the over majesty of the car.
The overall appearance is lovely with marvellous depth of shine . hilst not perfect . n my humble opinion ( and the thoughts of others) think it is wonderful as it is certainly does not have any issues that I can see that require attention.
Drive Train .
Well the jewel in the crown of the Jaguar is the wonderful XK unit and this particular one is an excellent standard bearer for the breed . ith quite valve gear . turbine smooth in operation . o overheating problems and plenty of grunt !
Very good . ith no synchro problems and excellent change.
Excellent . o knocking joints or wind up.
Excellent” all replaced along with master cylinder. servo . o require a bit of a push on the pedal until bedded in .
Excellent 72 spoke chrome and recent spinners. tyres like new.
Stunning! With just the right amount of patina. head lining . oor cards. seating. carpets . rash pad. centre console etc wonderful.
At the time of writing :all working bar for the original radio.
Anything to do?
The window winder gear on the passenger side needs attention and that is it
What would I do”
Fit wide rim Dunlop knock on alloy wheels. nd that would be it !
On the road:
There is something about the E Type that when you walk up to the vehicle to jump in and start up. have this feeling I should be donning a flying jacket and leather helmet ! it is the motoring equivalent of the glorious Supermarine Spitfire. he elegance of the bodywork. he magnificence of the 6 cylinder twincam with the triple SU's and then when you lower yourself into the cockpit to be faced by that iconic dashboard . ll toggle swtiches. levers and dials. staring through the huge woodrim wheel at the power bulge in the bonnet that looks like it is stretching out infinitum !
You move the cold start slider up and then push the starter button . his is when you have the urge to shout' tally “ Ho” angels 15! It is such a sense of occasion .
Once on the road you realise what a wonderful GT the E type really is smooth quiet . xcellent ride quality from its sub frame mounted suspension system.
The other thing that really impressed me was the turn of speed along with a lightness of feel from the controls.
Enzo Ferrari's comment on first seeing Malcolm Sayers Design . he most beautiful car in the world”. hat was over 50 years ago and there have been other icons of design in the interim period but in my humble opinion the comment from Enzo still stands today .
