First, we sold our red Series one Jaguar XKE, and its new owner is getting alot of enjoyment running it through the gears… We are still in the process of finishing three other Jaguar E-Types and then we still have a few others that will need restoration. Within the next couple of weeks we will be done with the metal work on the ’67 E-Type roadster project and then it can come off the rottiserie so the finish work can begin.
Our current service workload is also very busy with newer Jaguars and Land Rovers. We are working on a Land Rover Discovery II engine overhaul which includes our improved virtually “bullet proof” engine modifications. Our daily workload has included many Land Rover Discoveries, LR3’s, LR4’s, and BMW era Range Rovers. All major jobs which have been keeping us very busy! The 2004-2008 Jaguar XJ8 (X350 & X356) sedans have also been a popular sight within our workshops. At least once a week for the past couple of months we have been doing timing chain component upgrades on the 4.0 liter 1997-2003 Jaguar XJ8 and XK8 cars. There seems to be a renewed interest in these wonderful V8 Jaguars.
With the great summer weather we have had this season, its no surprise that we have seen our fair share of convertibles. Many Triumphs, MGs, and Austin-Healeys have come in for repairs or maintenance. Several Jaguar XK8s have been in to upgrade their convertible top hydraulic lines. We upgraded a few before the customer’s got the “dreaded green shower”, however some came in too late… That’s a messy ordeal!
I guess we are very fortunate to have so much work to keep us busy! Thanks for all your confidence in allowing us to take care of your cars.
Our good friend Chuck from Monocoque Metalworks came for his first in person visit recently. Click the link below to read all about his visit and how he felt like a “kid in a candy store”. http://www.monocoque-metalworks.com/main/2014/09/shop-visit-authorized-imported-cars-flemington-nj/
Some say finding a triple set of Jaguar XKE carbs is like “finding hen’s teeth”, we accept that challenge! looking high and low, all over the British Car community we found a brand new set of these highly polished and sought after gems. One of our very special Jaguar E-Type restorations will be the lucky recipient of these beauties!
This is a photo of one of our major projects, a Jaguar XKE. Can you guess what year it is, and how you determined the year? There are two items still on this Jaguar which will tell you the correct year. This is an original Jaguar with all original parts. It can only be this one particular year. The first person to correctly determine the year of this Jaguar and post how they came to this determination will receive a nice award from us!
We have several Jaguar XJS cars for sale. We have a low mileage (about 60k miles) 1984 Jaguar XJS Coupe for under $5000. This car has an interesting history as it was originally purchased by Baseball’s Don Matingly for his mother in law. And if a convertible Jaguar is what you seek, we have two red Jaguars available. The first is a 1989 Jaguar XJS V12 in beautiful condition sporting low mileage. The second is a 1996 Jaguar XJS 6-cylinder. Both cars are worth a serious look and priced right at just under $10,000. We also have a rare Jaguar XJS cabriolet available. Call 908-788-1982 to discuss any of these fine Jaguars.
Our 1969 Jaguar XKE restoration project is now complete and ready for a new owner. This car is fully restored, every nut and bolt was lovingly worked by our dedicated small team. Take a look and let us know what you think…
