       Desirable 1967 E type Coupe.

       This is a somewhat familiar story. Car had a refurbishment started, client sadly became ill, years passed, car was never finished. I bought the car from the fellow who bought it from the restoration shop who had ended up buying the car from the client.

       Lot of the hard work is done but the car is a good ways from finished. It appears this was a decent driver level car when started. At some point it had been repainted and had had minor body work performed previously. The nose was lightly hit and repaired, but it was an amateur job. It still needs some tweaking. A little bit of mud was used in font and behind the rear wheel  on the lips. At this time it looks to have had the floors relatively recently replaced and some metal work on the driver's inner rocker/footwell area. It still needs the passenger area addressed. Over all the body is pretty clean. It appears most of the rust was from the carpet holding moisture from water intrusion. Exception being the passenger door lower skin needs replaced.

       The refurbishment looks to have mostly been done under the bonnet. The engine was rebuilt (Cyrille Leseller). New radiator. Some of the front suspension rebuilt. Front brakes refurbished (hoses ,pads, hardware, calipers, master cylinder), General tidying up and painting of the frame, etc. I wouldn't call it a concourse finish but overall nice looking.

       This is a numbers matching engine. It has not been fired. Fuel supply system is not yet restored or hooked up.

        The rear suspension is untouched.

        Chrome wire wheels in decent condition. With a serious meticulous cleaning they'd be quite nice. Tires look like unused Michelin Xs, but I'm sure they have been mounted for a good while.

       The interior is untouched, needing to probably be replaced if a general restoration is carried out. Some have said that they'd just clean it up, put in carpet and go with it. Your choice. Dash is intact, not split, gauges appear pretty clean. Everything is there and probably original.

       Chrome is probably all original (bumpers look newer or perhaps replated at some point) and shows it's age. Light pitting is present. A few folks said they'd just do the minimum body work and paint, buff the car out and live with that. Just make a driver out of it. Your choice. I don't see evidence of any serious previous damage, just the light bump to the nose.

       Windshield has one star on the passenger side, rear glass is cracked but a replacement is included, other glass is good. Windows crank up and down fine.

        Spare wheel is present, no rust in the wheel well (well, some surface rust perhaps).

        To summarize: a very desirable year, good bones to work with, a lot of the heavy lifting is done, nice project to finish as you like. You've probably noticed, series one Jags are getting pretty dear. Here's your shot at a mighty nice project car.

        Thanks for looking!  Personal inspection welcome.

Jaguar F-Type Project 7 leaks in production trim ahead of Goodwood debut

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 12:45:00 EST

Just yesterday we brought you word that Jaguar was planning to bring something special to the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year - the first product of its Special Operations division - and now we have it right here.
Previewed in concept form last year, Jaguar's big reveal appears to be the production version of the Project 7 show car - an extreme speedster version of the F-Type. Though we still don't have official details, these images leaked courtesy of 4WheelsNews show that the roadster seems to have lost little in the transition from concept to reality.
The bright blue paint job has been replaced by a more British shade of green, but the white trim - including the racing stripes running across (not up) the hood, the grille surround and the number circle on the door - appear to have carried over. As has the D-Type-inspired, fin-like, single raised cowling on the rear deck, though now positioned behind the left-hand driver's seat instead of the right. The wheels are fresh and the front lip spoiler looks even bigger, and the rear wing appears to have been reshaped.

2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S [w/video]

Thu, 14 Nov 2013 11:58:00 EST

Withhold judgment on the world's greatest exhaust note until after you've heard the Jaguar F-Type V8 S (scroll down now for a sneak peek). Its cackle, boom and pop under deceleration will have you rifling through its glovebox looking for a tool to remove the stereo as an in-dash audio system.
Combining modern technology with age-old exhaust plumbing, Jaguar's British engineers have developed a way to propel spent combustion gases into the atmosphere in a manner that elevates the complete driving experience. At idle, it purrs. Under acceleration, it roars. During cruise, it soothes. Perhaps most compellingly, during deceleration, it titillates.
Thankfully, the newest two-place convertible from Jaguar isn't only defined by its mesmerizing soundtrack - the F-Type would be an impressive sports car even if the world went silent.
