Sellers description:
EARLY 1963 JAGUAR XKE E-TYPE DHC ROADSTER. VIN # J63878635

This E-type has spent its life in California. I have owned it for over a decade. For most of that time it has been on the lift at a garage as shown in the photo! I simply have too many projects. If this sells okay. If it doesn't sell that's okay and I'll finally get around to finishing it.

There are many new parts, including new Dayton wire wheels (tubeless 15" x 6") with tires and new wheel spinners. New cranberry red canvas top. New aluminum radiator. New Wilwood four piston aluminum caliper brakes with aluminum hats. Aluminum differential cover. Etc. You can see many of the new parts in the photos, including the new cranberry red convertible top.

I purchased an additional set of front and rear bumpers and still retain the original bumpers (which I'd re-chrome and use if I keep the car).

My plan was/is to finish the car in this silver blue with a cranberry red top and matching cranberry red interior.

This time around I wanted something special. The plan was /is to make this car look like a series one on the outside and inside, albeit with a lot more visual pop thanks to the stunning yet classic silver-blue exterior / red leather interior. But under the skin there would be an improvement unlike anything anyone else has done (as far as I know).

I purchased a super low mileage XJR motor and had it shipped from England to Los Angeles. I also purchased a Getrag 5 speed transmission as originally fit by Jaguar to the XJ in Europe.

A custom aluminum flywheel and performance clutch was prepared and the entire assembly installed in the XKE.

Which is pretty much where things stand now. The motor is in the car but the restoration needs completion. Prior to taking the car apart the car was a fine running XKE but it was decades old and in need of renewing.

Properly finished the E-type will be stunning to look at but also unique, fast, reliable, fuel efficient and all Jaguar....the classic E with the last true evolution of the straight six Jaguar motor. It's a project but an extremely fun and worthwhile one with a finished product that will command top dollar as it will be distinct from the other 75,000 E-types.

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?
