If not that car I have seen one the same colour with very similar tail light and centre brake light mods getting around Brisbane a year or two ago.

Given the car is in Australia (and the build is really unique) expect this was the same car. How'd it look in person?

It wasn't a look I liked, but I like to keep things looking original with small mods. At a closer look it has Queensland plates so it will be same car.
I have a couple of pics of it somewhere, I'll see if I can dig them up.

Default Oregon Festival Of Cars

We had 3 E-Types at the show and a truly well done Sunbeam Tiger!

Default Quad Light XKE

This was actually made by Jaguar for an Earl, this car isn't modified. Had to have cost a fortune, why is the question... (From the Facebook Jaguar Group)



1966 'Quad-Headlamp' Jaguar E-Type built to special order of the Sixth Earl of Cawdor with a tuned engine, Abbey Panels modified 'quad headlamp / shark gill' bonnet, Koni shock absorbers, competition wire wheels and Restall seats.

Two of my three Jags at a car show last Saturday in Central Texas. Typical show for this area: Over 250 cars at the show, 50+ awards and only one for best import. XKE is a 1966 with 34,000+ miles on it since restoration. XJ6 VP is a 1996 model with over 290,000 miles on it.

Like the XKE model, you have on the ground. Looks like one of the better ones. Nice cars!

Thanks. The color is Opalescent Gunmetal over Biege (original factory offering from '61-64 only). As you can see it has been retrofitted with air conditioning, big radiator, Coolcat fan, alternator, centerlaced Dayton wheels. Has an all synchro 4-speed, and 3.07 rear gears. Yada, yada. Comfortable cruiser versus trailer queen. I left off some of the chrome trim because I prefer the look....chrome detracts from the swoopy lines. Small clip-on door mirrors for the same reason.

Now that's what an XKE should look like. Clean smooth, and simple. Absolutely Gorgeous!
