This incredible first-generation outside bonnet latch XKE, which is correct and proper, has recently undergone a restoration to the highest standards of show-level correctness. It has early sought-after features like flat floors, welded louvers and an outside bonnet latch. This rare example of Jaguar history is presented in its stunning original color combination of Gunmetal and red. The car has undergone a no-expense-spared, comprehensive restoration by marque specialists Classic Showcase of Oceanside, CA. The vehicle was completely dissembled in the restoration process, and the interior was removed and documented. The body was stripped to bare metal and placed on a rotisserie where it was body-worked, metal-finished, fitted and leaded as needed. All body parts and chrome were fitted to the E-type in bare metal. It has been primed, sealed, had a base coat/clear coat applied and was then color-sanded and buffed to a beautiful finish. All body parts were removed from the car and painted separately. All systems have been gone through and were restored or replaced as necessary. The transmission, clutch and hydraulic systems were fully restored or replaced, and the car has received all new rubber, grommets and seals. In addition, the brightwork has been fitted and replated to show-level quality. The car received all new upholstery in the correct materials, which has been fitted and installed. Parts and components were restored in the proper colors and finishes as well, and NOS parts were used wherever possible. Extreme attention to detail was given because of the importance of this early, highly original E-type. A DVD of the restoration process, along with a Heritage Certificate of Authenticity, accompanies the vehicle. This is a striking original color combination that enhances the natural lines and beauty of this E-type. Judged independently by two JCNA judges, based on photographic evidence, and it was without deduction - scoring a perfect 100 points both time. It is ready for campaigning and showing.
