Owners comment:
My 1963 Jaguar XKE Coupe. I got it from the 3rd owner who has had it since 1973. The car has not run since 1982. May God help me...

VIN#:3888373 Engine #:RA1453-9 Body #: V5522

Car is being restored as time allows. This car was sold to Hertz and the second owner worked for 20th Century Fox. I got it from the 3rd owner. It was repainted several times although no serious damage was found when we tanked it. It may have been a movie car early in life.

I was going to sell the car if I got my price. Flying, as a hobby, is eating up my free time. Since it did not sell, I decided to finish the car. I will post detail and photos over the next week or so.

James sold this car to me in March 2011. I was working on a S2 FHC that proved to be beyond my skills to restore the bodywork. James has done a lot of the restoration work including bodywork and front suspension. I am going to complete it.

888373 is now fully painted and I have begun reassembling the suspension. Lot's more to do, but making progress.

I am approaching the end of the 3+ year restoration on this car. I have all of the drive train in and working awaiting brake bleeding for a test drive. FInal bonnet assembly (lights and bumpers) needed and she is done. July 2014

Bettie is on the road! I have been working on her since March 2011 and it took me until September 2014 to get her ready for a test run.

I have some issues still but she's fun to drive and makes me smile every time I go out to the garage.

Very nice job and congratulations on getting her back on the road! Having restored 1E30036 back in the early '90s, I know the feeling well! Now, just enjoy it!

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?
