This car is in Coventry and has been the subject of an ongoing restoration for years. In fact the owner works for Jaguar at Wrighton design plant. I have photos of the same including some very rare period parts. It was Gunmetal with red interior and is I believe being rebuilt the same - oneday!

I have had this car since the mid 80's, I am the second owner, it is low mileage with full history and documentation, and is still part way through restoration to concours. Next to be seen on the concours circuit, who knows when!
If anyone has a rear hood chrome (unique to this era) let me know please as its the only original part missing!! By the way its colour scheme is opalescent dark blue with a red interior.

I'm glad to say 22 is progressing - the body is complete and in basecoat on its way to concours paint finish. I'm determined to find a way to make sure the exact shade of op. blue is used - not as easy as you might think!
Also I still work for JLR but I'm Gaydon based...at least access to archived drawing information if necessary should ensure reassembly is accurate....one day!!

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
