This series 1.5 E-Type Jaguar was purchased new by C. Briercliffe in 1966; delivered to Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. It was used as a daily driver for some time (the car has 48,000 miles on it), but was disassembled for a complete restoration. C. Briercliffe was an MIT educated mechanical engineer so he was certainly qualified for the task. Unfortunately, he didn't live long enough to finish the restoration.
The car has moved on to B. Briercliffe (nephew) in 2001 when the Craig died. Now the car resides in Minnesota USA where the restoration was completed. Although the car is on its second owner, its never left the family, and hopefully never will.
The car was professionally appraised as a Category 2; it can still be driven to car shows and the occasional outing without the need to pamper it in a trailer. The Jag E-type is a truly fun car to drive, trailering it would be a waste.
