For your consideration an outstanding example of a 1964 Jaguar E Type Series I Fixed Head Coupe vintage racer. The car was found in a So. Cal.  in need of a lot of TLC since leaving the hands of the original master race car builder. The Coupe was brought to my shop to be restored to its glory days keeping as much of its racing originality intact. The entire car was originally built with the best racing components available to perform at a sports car GT2  racing level… the engine:  3.8 liter(original block) with a later model E Type  4.2 ltr head, with full race porting, racing cams and lifter buckets. Upon inspection it was found to show very low hours if not a recent rebuild. Cross hatch still showing on cylinder walls, pistons shiny new in appearance (10.5/1 Compression ratio), rods (H beam) clean with no oil residue, a lightened Crank and a High capacity oil pump. (See photo) An automatic, 12V engine Pre-oiler was installed to protect cold start-ups. Upon flipping the ignition toggle, 1.5 qts of pressurized oil are fed to the crank and valve train before fire up! The top end checked out just as sweet. So back together it went after a thorough cleaning and detail. The 48mm Weber carbs were rebuilt, tuned, and synched. Weber velocity stack air cleaners were installed to protect engine during run in. The wide blade clutch and pressure plate were rebuilt to exact race standards. Custom header exhaust system was fabricated, and new gear reduction starter was installed, replacing the old school starter which were never up to the task of turning over a high compression engine. The engine jumps to attention just touching the starter button. The Chassis was taken to the tub, cleaned/stripped, fresh paint, detailed and assembled with all new OEM Jaguar hardware/fasteners. New lower ball joints, tie rod ends and a new adjustable torsion bar system were installed. The brake system was rebuilt with OEM Jaguar kits  (later model Jag XJS 4 piston calipers with race pads- the hot ticket back in the day) A new electrical harness was made, relocating the MSD adjustable timing ignition components to the cockpit. An automatic engine hour meter was installed and currently shows 45 minutes. Any item, front to rear, found to be marginal, was rebuilt or replaced. Not only is this one of the cleanest E Type Series I racers available in the World, it is also priced less than the build cost, and has an unheard of clean/clear California title. Don't wait on this one!!!For the full story or any questions call or text Steve @ 775 343-2592

2015 Jaguar F-Type V6 S Coupe

Wed, 03 Sep 2014

My first, ill-fated job in the auto world was at an exotic car dealer in metro Detroit. The job itself sucked, but the cars, they were exceptional. Amidst a sea of Tiptronic Porsche Boxsters, first-gen Mercedes-Benz SLKs and abused second-generation Range Rovers, there were some real gems.
In particular, I have fond memories of a trio of undrivable Jaguar E-Types. Two Series II coupes as well as a Series III convertible (that featured a mostly broken roof) spent the entirety of my brief tenure at the dealership in the back of the musty service garage. I'd make side trips through there just to see the trio of E-Types, which rarely failed to put a big, ridiculous grin on my face.
Since that time in the summer of 2005, there hasn't been a single Jag that's been capable of eliciting the same goofy smile. Not the XFR-S, with its un-aristocratic wing, nor the XKR-S. At the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, though, Jaguar introduced this F-Type Coupe. Sure, the droptop model had been around for a bit, but I thought it was the new coupe that most captured the E-Type's classic aesthetic, with a swooping roofline, those gorgeous rear haunches and a long, powerful hood. I had to drive one.

Jay Leno's Garage features funnyman's 1963 Jaguar E-Type

Thu, 25 Apr 2013

Jay Leno looks inward on this episode of his eponymous garage, checking out a 1963 Jaguar XKE that he bought earlier this year. It is an example of his favorite kind of car, that being original and unrestored. He bought the E-Type from its first owner, a woman who purchased it new, held on to it for 50 years and took excellent care of it. Having never been in an accident, Leno says even the paint is 85- to 90-percent original.
In the video, the XKE sits in front of two heavily modded XK120s and another '63 XKE, but Leno said all he's done - and all he plans to do - is clean it up and put on a modern set of wire wheels for safety.
He's not on any junket and there are no guests, it's just a guy talking about an object dear to his heart. If you need a refresher on the excellent genes of the new F-Type, check out the video below.

Jaguar envisions future without V8 engines

Wed, 21 Aug 2013

With tighter emissions and fuel economy regulations looming, Jaguar may have to do more than make a small, fuel-efficient hatchback to lower its model range's consumption figures - it also might give up its venerable V8 power, Drive reports. But not anytime soon, says Steven de Ploey, Jaguar's product and marketing director, who recognizes that the V8 can be replaced only by something that offers the same, or better, performance. But he has a word of caution: "We are not wedded to V8s."
In the meantime, de Ploey says there are other ways to reduce emissions. One of the first steps Jaguar could take is to shift away from the use of superchargers, which aren't as good as turbochargers at maintaining efficiency and making power. But he adds that supercharging still is "at the heart of Jaguar's performance proposition," and that the company has addressed the current downsizing trend by "replacing our naturally aspirated V8 with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6."
Consider one of de Ploey's comments on the cancelled C-X75 supercar (pictured) for some clue about Jaguar's future: "Some of the stuff we have already exploited to the extreme in the C-X75 is the kind of thinking for us and is an essential test bed to see how we could evolve from today to something that is sustainable in the future."
