Online notes from XKE data indicates in 2009 the car was repainted, with new interior and Stayfast top, brightwork re-finished, new wire wheels and tires installed by the selling dealer Cooper Classics in NYC. It was also fitted with a new clutch. It was a one owner car to that point, owned by a lady. In 2011, It was sold to a couple and kept in Sarasota Florida. After 8 years of ownership, health reasons required a sale. All original documents were lost in the New Jersey home during Hurricane Sandy. Recent ownership since 2019/20.
Very clean example, and starts with the first push of the button every time. In house services included: engine bay detail to include cam cover and carburetor polish, wheel off detail to rims and suspension, and overall detail with one stage polish.
The car runs smooth, and straight with no surprises. The dash appears to be original and mostly undisturbed, with an original steering wheel, and the gauges appear crisp. The twin exhaust pipes produce a rich exhaust note.
The following condition report, while thorough, is not exhaustive as vintage cars have inherent wear and imperfections. We welcome personal inspections.
The paint in overall wonderful condition, with few areas of concern; the louvres on the hood show some minor cracking to paint; left turn indicator is missing from dash; the brightwork in overall wonderful condition, with slight surface imperfections; the boot cover tabs do not align well; no other apparent concerns.
