Katie features a gorgeous restoration of a rare 1967 Jaguar Type E Roadster this week on PowerNation. The car had sat in pieces and in boxes in a storage unit for years before owners Lee Scott and Jeanne Beauchamp decided to restore it. They turned to T.C. Penick and Bay One Customs and the guys hit a home run! And even more challenging; the owners wanted it period correct. T.C. and his team transformed the rare roadster in a three-year build with over 2000 man hours, back to better than new with a 4.2-liter engine with a 4 speed. The car only has 30,000 miles on it.
Lee picked Glasuret “Opalescence Blue” and it hints silver and blue depending on where and when you look at it. The leather interior was created by BAS with the original stitch in the seats just like in 1967. Bay One installed the interior along with period correct gauges they had to fly to England for their restoration. Although Lee passed away before the car was completed, Jeanne says she plans to drive and enjoy the Jag they way it was meant to be. It’s a beautiful display of craftsmanship! Check it out this week on PowerNation.
