This particular E-Type Jaguar was purchased by its current custodian in October of 2000. At the time, it was in rather poor condition but complete. It was decided to make the car into a capable grand tourer with some upgrades and improvements. Soon, a full nut and bolt restoration began. This restoration was quite extensive and involved the car being stripped to bare metal. The original subframe was also replaced. The engine had a substantial crack and the block was not savable so that was also replaced with a correct 3.8 block. The engine was also upgraded with new pistons, lightened fly wheel, and other performance upgrades.

The braking system that is often a complaint on early 3.8-liter E-Types was converted to the later 4.2-liter specification. To further improve decelerative performance, Wilwood front brakes and larger pistons in the rear calipers were installed giving the car a braking system that is far more capable than the car possessed from new. To further the upgrade, a 5-speed Tremec transmission was fitted. In order to finish the car's sporting look, it was decided to put the car on Dunlop racing wheels.

Completing the restoration, the car was painted in Opalescent gunmetal grey. The interior was updated with the usage of Red Connolly leather, and wilton wool carpets. This appointment is usually only found on Rolls Royce, Bentley and Bristol motorcars from the 1960s. Finishing the interior, a set of 58mm Heuer rally stop watch and chronograph were also fitted.

Today, this E-Type roadster presents extremely well. The early 3.8 E-type engine is smoother and revs far more easily then the later 4.2 engine and makes it a favorite of a driving enthusiast. Along with the 5-speed transmission and upgraded braking, it is a suburb driver's car. Ready for the road and as a welcome participant on high speed drivers' events.

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?
