This incredible, numbers matching, first-generation E-type outside bonnet latch roadster has undergone a restoration to a high standard of show-level correctness. Number 157 in early E-type production history this Jaguar was originally purchased from Jaguar Cars in New York on September 22, 1961 by F.P. Thorsen. The previous two owners were collectors, who kept it well maintained and cared for, until it was purchased by Classic Showcase. Included in the restoration process, the vehicle had been dissembled, the interior removed and all items were documented and inspected for the restoration process, the vehicle body was worked, the metal finished, fitted, and leaded as needed, and all body parts and chrome were fitted to the car. It was primed, sealed, base coat applied, clear coated, and then was color sanded and buffed to a beautiful finish. All systems were gone through and were restored, or replaced as necessary. The transmission, clutch, and hydraulic systems were all fully restored, and the car received all new rubber, grommets and seals. In addition, the britework was re-plated to Show level quality. The car benefited from all new upholstery that was fitted in all the correct
