Engine block and crank were replaced due to track incident -- blown engine. I don't know the S/N of the new block.

I have owned it since December, 1974.

Great photos!
Fun to see a car that really gets driven.

What I put in the New York Times Collectibles section:

This 3.8 Jaguar E Type represents the earliest and purest of the line. A true sports car, it could easily be driven to an automotive event, compete successfully, and then be driven back home on public roads. A Grand Touring car, it could achieve nearly 150 MPH and the coupe version could carry a significant amount of luggage. Driver and passenger were carried in comfort unheard of in any contemporary sports model. Controls were light and direct for the time. Derived from the design of the very successful Jaguar D Type that won Le Mans several times in the 1950s, it brought a true monocoque (stressed skin) tub, very light and strong, from the race track to the road. It boasts a wonderful independent rear suspension that is still often used today by US hot rodders. With disk brakes on all four wheels (rears inboard), it stopped much better than contemporary Ferraris. Weight is carried evenly front and rear, and this results in a superb balance when cornering. Like so many cars of the '60s, it responds subtly to changes in throttle by varying its attitude in a turn. A true drivers' car, it has also been called the "Greatest Crumpet Collector Known to Man", and the most beautiful automobile ever produced. A Jaguar E Type is in the permanent collection of MOMA. This example has been mine since 1974, and still competes regularly in SCCA autocross, fulfilling its sports car mandate. And while it has many recent hours on the racetrack, it can still win trophies in JCNA Concours d'elegance (Driven class, of course).

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?
