We bought this XKE from a guy in Michigan who had acquired it with the purchase of an old warehouse. The car was buried underneath broken ceiling tiles and a hefty glaze of pigeon droppings. We were told that the poor Jag had been taken on a storage lien after it sat in annual storage for over thirty years. Luckily the windows and doors were closed when the car was originally parked, so the interior was surprisingly well-preserved. We dragged the car out of the tight nook it had been confined to only to realize that the rear end and transmission had been dropped and stored next to the car. We bolted some caster wheels on the car and rolled it up onto a flatbed. Back at CCC we took inventory of all the scattered parts and got the rear end, transmission, and brakes back on the car. Four carburetor rebuild kits later, we had the Jag purring just as it had the day it was parked. Shortly after the completion of a long and thorough restoration, the car was sold the car to an XKE enthusiast in Sweden.
