1968 Jaguar E-type convertible.
This vehicle started and drove when we purchased about 7 years ago. This E-type was purchased from its previous loving owner in Colorado. It had faded paint, and had some wear. There wasn't any rust holes, body and frame were solid.
The bonnet lost its rigidity near the hinges due to rust, which made it practically impossible to open. The tubing frame has been reinforced, and the bent metal has been removed and strong metal made by a local steelworks has been welded in to the frame of the bonnet.
When this project was started the intention was to have this car restored professionally and to be show car quality. Unfortunately never really had time to continue with work on it past sandblasting and priming the car. It has sat in a temperature controlled warehouse for about 5 years. Originally we had planned the paint to be dark gray BMW metallic. Which was used as base paint in door jams, interior and firewall.
The engine/transmission/rear end was initially removed for sandblasting purposes.
While the body was worked on the engine had valve gaskets replaced, and Engine/trans/rear-end has been cleaned up most of the way from its oxidized look. All metal parts have been painted with rust preventing paint.
After the vehicle has been primed, the drivetrain has been reinstalled back in to the vehicle. Some parts have been ordered new, such as the front bumper assembly, seals for the trunk, doors etc. Some other parts like the chrome moldings which needed to be replaced were purchased used in very good condition.
In our understanding this vehicle is 99% complete.
It its current state it is perfect for you to pick a color of your choice, paint it and proceed with assembly.
