1963 Jaguar E-type Coupe

Restoration quickly gets out of hand – bordering on obsession, but that’s the fun part – right up there with power boating, fine red wine & double black runs on skiis. The coupe has always been, to me, one of the most beautiful cars and always very high on my personal desire scale. This is a pictorial story of the restoration and history of a 63 fixed head coupe acquired in the fall of 2000.

Please note that the masthead of the website is shamelessly borrowed from elsewhere as are several line drawings found from various sources on the web –However, all photos except where noted are of this coupe during its various phases of restoration.
