The 6/89 issue of Ejag magazine contained an article about this car. It was said to be owned by Bernard Juchli who turned the car into a racer. He purchased the car in London in 1985 badly rusted and having been in storage for several years. It had previously been a "club racer" back in the 70s. It continues "This cat began as Chassis #861233, body V4588 and Engine #RA2098-9." He performed many modifications on the engine and it was dynamometer tested at 328hp at 6k rpm. It was said of the owner "Barney worked at various Jaguar dealerships until he opened his own Jaguar shop in 1981 in Los Gatos, California. He is a member of five different vintage racing clubs and campaigns his coupe up and down the West Coast with his chief pit steward/helper/wife Rosalie." The car is painted in the Lister Jaguar colors of green and yellow with its racing number 46 on the side.

After acquiring the car in 1984 as an old race car in England, the complete restoration by Jaguar Unlimited was finished in the fall of 1986.
