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
