Worked part time this week on The Italian Job, our 1965 Jaguar E-Type restoration. Careful and correct assembly of the engine Reynolds 531 sub frames and pressed steel picture frame were completed, then work could begin on the suspension and steering rack. The project is now complete enough to pass through the wiring harness, attach the steering column and attach the wheel hubs to have a rolling restoration!3

Today we are presenting The Italian Job, a Series 1 1965 Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupé that was originally ordered new in Italy and delivered in New York.
This bright red car has spent a large portion of its life in Boulder, Colorado where it was loving preserved and cared for 65,000 miles. Fortunately, the Colorado weather has preserved this car far better than most. For instance there is none of the typical corrosion and every body panel is original.
The intention with this job is to refresh the front-end of the Jaguar. This means giving the engine, suspension, brakes, steering box and cooling a mechanical and cosmetic restoration.
