History Constructed in Coventry, England, this car was originally sold at a dealership on Long Island, NY. I believe it spent most of its life back East and has only clocked a bit over 29,000 miles in nearly 10 years.

A bit about it: 4.2 litre, 420 HP Supercharged V8; 6 Speed Automatic; 20" BBS Cremona Wheels; Alcon Brakes, 6 piston 15.7" in front, 4 piston 13.8" in rear. Only 150 of these cars in the U.S. A great driving Grand Tourer.

Thanks very much. These photos don't really do it much justice. They are a couple that I was able to look at when it was still in the seller's possession. I'll try to get some better ones taken and loaded soon.

I dropped some more pictures of it in the thread about your classic.

Very nice, do not let any of the hoses for water/oil or anything dry out, it is a major rebuild to get all that replaced and EXPENSIVE.

Love the fact it is a rare unit in the U.S. Is it numbered?

No numbers that are known. I plan to connect with Jaguar USA and pose an inquiry as to some history via the VIN. I DO love this car, I must say!

Thanks to the assistance from Crashton, there are a few additional photos over on my "The Phenix" thread. I'll see if there may be a means to either move them, or reload them here.

Nice. The oval grill is very "E-Type" looking.
