This E-type Roadster is a matching numbers example. According to its Heritage Certificate it was delivered new to the U.S. market and sold new by Jaguar Cars New York to its first registered owner Mr. David Reimens of Wharton, Texas on July 17th, 1967.

This E-type has been a Texas car for almost all of its life. It was left early on unused in a garage, but complete. Purchased by Jaguar restoration firm, it was completely restored. Subsequently, it was sold to a Mr. R. Isip a Texas Toyota dealer and collector. In 2012, this E-type was offered for sale. Subsequently, purchased sight unseen from the internet by our client and its previous owner in 2012, it was delivered to its new home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Once received and upon inspection by a marquee expert, it was noted to be a mediocre restoration at best.

It was decided to send this E-type to Texas based Jaguar expert, Dan Mooneys Classic Jaguar for a thorough nut-and-bolt restoration that also provided an upgraded level of performance while aiming for cosmetic authenticity and thus, re-restore this E-type properly and to exacting standards, the way it should have been in the first place!

The original matching-numbers engine was completely rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted. New high-performance camshafts, enlarged stainless steel valves, Forged pistons, lightweight flywheel, K&N filters and an aluminum radiator were fitted for improved performance. For better road holding and drivability, Classic Jaguar added a five-speed transmission, Wilwood brakes, Koni shocks, upgraded torsion bars and wider, polished Dayton wire wheels mounted with Dunlop performance tires. Although not significantly altered from its original configuration, this E-type boasts approximately 300 horsepower in its current form. A complete list of upgrades can be seen within the photos.

The restoration took over two years and upwards of $250,000.00. All receipts are available.

With Jaguar E-type values rising by the day, this E-type offers instant gratification because of another enthusiasts love for the restoration process and making his E-type correct. It has been driven only 800 miles since restoration. Recently road tested by (Tom Papadopoulos), I can confirm it to be superb in every way!
