"Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Litre Open Two Seater, number 877822 was manufactured on August 6, 1962 and dispatched to Jaguar Cars New York on August 17, 1962. The original colors of Gunmetal Grey and red leather interior with a black hood are the colors to which the car is being restored by Jaguar specialists Darbyshire Motors in Petersburg, Va. The car was sent to California from New York and still has the original 'J63' tag installedby California showing it registered as a 1963. Ownership history prior to the current owner purchasing on July 10 1981 is not known, but is being researched."

Hi - I had significant dealings with Tom Darbyshire back in 1991-1993 when seconded with the US Army at Fort Lee ( I'm an Aussie). Darbyshire Motors rebuilt an XJS for me after I had a significant accident. I am now the owner of a 1985 XJS V12 HE Cabriolet (Tom had a manual 6 cyl cabriolet) and recently the radiator auxilliary fan motor bushes broke the casting. Now when I run the aircon the motor overheats.

I'm wondering if you guys have a good secondhand one I could buy?

I have very fond memories of my dealings with Tom and his wife and the shop doberman that used to greet us at the workshop door.


Cheers

David

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?
