The Museum of Modern Art in New York City placed a Jaguar E-Type in its permanent exhibit. The E-Type was just the third car to be honored by the curators of the museum's permanent exhibit. Released in 1961, the E-Type was the first model released by Jaguar Motors after a disastrous fire destroyed the company's production facilities in 1957. The car's sleek lines made it an immediate success. The E-Type is the epitome of Jaguar's exquisite feel for body design. The car is literally a work of art.

This E-type was completed at the Browns Lane Jaguar works during January of 1964. An original LHD example, it was ordered and produced in the color combination it wears today. Ordered by USA distributor, Jaguar Cars of New York, it's first registered owner was Mr. L. W. Dougherty, Camden, TN.

Circa 2012, this E-Type was treated to a compressive nut-and-bolt restoration by well known and respected marque specialists. The restoration was performed and completed by Predator Performance of Largo, Florida, while the rebuild of the matching-numbers engine was entrusted with Jaguar specialist Bill Terry.

During restoration various bespoke upgrades were performed. These include: High-torque starter, Remote oil filter, Large bore stainless steel exhaust system and for effortless touring and maximum performance, it has been updated with a 5-speed Tremec gearbox.

Comprehensively restored, the attention to detail and correctness is apparent throughout.
