1964 Jaguar XKE Series 1
This classic E-type, an icon of 1960s sports cars, was fully restored to better-than-new condition, with some modifications requested by the owner as well. The car has been accepted to the 2018 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, where it will be shown in the featured Jaguar XKE class and also eligible for a special restorers award. We look forward to showing it there.

The car came in as a maroon car. (Photos below)
The owner wanted to give his E-type an overhaul as well as a custom metallic silver paint job. It received a number of custom touches, including a made-to-order canvas soft top with glass rear window inset instead of plastic.

Lots, and lots, of wires to attend to when disassembling a car. Photos are a big help in the reassembly process.

There’s no mistaking the rounded side of an E-type. Body an structural panels new and old are meticulously fitted together for a perfect line.
