1964 Jaguar XK#

1964 Jaguar XKE Series 1
This classic E-type, an icon of 1960s sports cars, came in as a maroon car. (Photos below)
The owner wanted to give his E-type an overhaul as well as a custom metallic silver paint job.
The body has been painted and is back on its chassis. Now comes the fun part of reassembly.

Lots, and lots, of wires to attend to when disassembling a car. Photos are a big help in the reassembly process.

Corruption is just getting started on some inner panels. All must be dealt with during the restoration process.

There’s no mistaking the rounded side of an E-type. Body an structural panels new and old are meticulously fitted together for a perfect line.
