The pinnacle, of course, is the first incarnation of the model, the Series I and it is an extremely well restored one that is presented here today. It was acquired in a partially restored state approximately three years ago by the vendor, himself something of a specialist in this field but probably better known for dominating the XK racing scene for the last twenty years.
Under Trevor Grooms critical eye, the car was completely stripped, painted and rebuilt. All bright-work was re-chromed and the braking system was completely re-worked (with new piping). The rear differential now has a rebuilt 3.31 power lock system and the gearbox has a clean bill of health. A new clutch, fuel pump & lines and complete new wiring harness has been fitted. The engine has been completely rebuilt with electronic ignition, rebuilt dynamo and overhauled radiator. The front suspension, shock absorbers, steering rack (and mounts) are all rebuilt, have new bushes and refitted and all finished off with a brand new stainless steel exhaust.
Whilst the mechanics are fully sorted, the interior has not been neglected. Completely re-trimmed, as you would expect, with new seats and runners, new hood and hood cover and, most unusually, a factory hardtop is also included.
This description gives only a brief insight into the works carried out, further inspection of the history file will show additional details such as the addition of a new battery and cut-off, rebuilt heater box and associated pipe work and a new aluminium dash kit amongst many others.
So, properly restored, a matching numbers car and the model and configuration to own, use or collect.
