I am the owner of this car, which is located in the Phoenix, AZ area. I purchased it from Charlie Provance of Music City Thunderburds, Madison, TN at Barrett-Jackson on 1-23-88. Mr. Provance bought the car in the early 1980s from Fred E. Strunk of Auburn, CA. Mr. Provance did not title the car, driving it with dealer plates. The open title, issued to Mr. Strunk on 12-20-80, was transferred directly to me upon purchase. This car was delivered with a locking glove box, and rear quarter side-clearance lights. Mr. Provance installed an air conditioner that is completely hidden, except for the air registers behind the seats which are covered when the top is down.

Car to be at auction 8/17
www.goodingco.com/vehicle/1966-jaguar-e-type-series-i-4-2-litre-roadster-5/

Auction description:
Lot 167
Pebble Beach 2017
1966 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2-Litre Roadster
Estimate: $220,000 - $260,000 | Without Reserve
Chassis: 1E12331
Engine: 7E7452-9
*Please note that this vehicle is titled J671E12331 and as 1967.

Released from the factory on January 25, 1966, and shipped to the US, this E-Type sold on December 17, 1966, to Margaret McLean of Los Angeles. The car later was sold to Fred Strunk of Auburn, California, and in 1988 Richard Boulais of Glendale, Arizona, acquired it. Mr. Boulais researched its history extensively, visiting with JDHT archivists and discovering that this particular Series I was extremely rare for its prototype color of Oyster Beige and likely one of only four built in that color.

Last year, Mr. Boulais sold the very solid E-Type to the current owner, a Jaguar restoration specialist, who has been able to re-create the original paint color through computer analysis of traces found in the trunk. The Jaguar was stripped to the bare shell, keeping all original panels. While the body was painstakingly finished, the engine, gearbox, and differential were all rebuilt. Once painted, the roadster was reassembled using new wiring and glass. The correct beige interior and French Grey top were crafted in England, and correct Dunlop SP tires were fitted. This lovely E-Type comes with a tool kit, jack, service book, French Grey boot cover, as well as documentation verifying the color and matching numbers.

Superb in every detail, this Jaguar E-Type is a worthy standard-bearer of a legendary marque and is rare for its unique color, rendering it exceptionally collectible - as well as ultimately driveable.

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?
