This car was imported by a motor engineer specializing in E Types & further improved as the below list indicates. The brief was to make the car as modern day driveable as possible; a brief that was completely successful resulting in the car we find today. The car has covered 46,000 miles from new.As indicated in the attached Jaguar Heritage certificate the above V12 E Type was manufactured on 19th November 1973 as a open 2 seater LHD and was dispatched on the 5th February 1974 to British Leyland New York.The first two owners of the car were on the west coast of the USA until in the mid eighties when the car was bought by a Mr. Daniel Gill then living in Michigan who began a full restoration to concourse winning standards (see pics). Daniel Gill who was a member of the JCNA continued to live in Michigan and entered the car in numerous classic car events where he was well known until his untimely death around 2007.His widow Martha Gil moved to Florida kept the car for a further seven years in storage until she was able to part with it. The car was recommission by a local Jaguar garage in Florida and then advertised for sale.The car was purchased in 2013 direct from Martha Gill following many conversations with her and the garage involved to validate the history, mileage and condition. Satisfied the car was a genuine rust free example in exceptional condition arrangements for repatriation to the UK were made in January 2014.The car arrived in its own container at Felixstowe Docks in February 2014 In the condition was as described. In March 2014 the car passed its first UK MOT with a recoded milage of 44702 and the work began converting it to right hand drive using all genuine Jaguar parts to UK specification.It was decided that the car would be improved by fitting a manual gearbox and an original Jaguar E type box with overdrive was selected and reconditioned by Klassik Transmissions Wolverhampton.
