I bought this car in 1971 for $550.00, and parked it in my folks garage in Coronado.. The car was moved several times about Coronado, but remained basically untouched and undriven while it and my life took different paths. I am now restoring the car, Buying this car, and holding on to it thru thick and thin is one of the few things I did right in my early adult years...

As of Oct '04 the car is at XK's Unlimited in SLO CA undergoing full restoration. I hope to have it done and driving before next year's open house at XK's.

Restoration completed by XK's Unlimited in July of 2006. Car took first in class at JCNA Western States meet in Bend, Oregon, July 2006.
Car restored to stock specification, as close as possible to the way it was dispatched in 1961.

I have owned this car since 1972, It has been a 30 plus years restoration project. Owning this car led to a career in Jaguar restoration, Thom and I now live and work in central CA, at XK's Unlimited. I was a customer of XK's for over 12 years before becoming their Restoration Manager. The car is now complete, and a 99 point plus show winner.

Dave & Thom,
Hope the car is treating you well, I was wondering with a late 61 build what radiator do you feel is correct for the car? Corrugated sides or smooth? I think the judges guide says all 3.8 require corrugated, but I am sure that cant be the case...

Thanks for your help!

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?
