I can believe that someone got fed up with it not running, running up repair bills trying to get it fixed. Then saying the hell with it and the junkyard will give me $XX for it. Take it away, please.

Hi Daytona,
The bump stop sometime interferes with the 205-70-15 tires. Since you are only going to roll it around I would go with the 205's and if you need to remove the rear bump stop(s).

99.9% of the series 1 e-types sent to the USA were 9:1 compression ratio. The 8:1 engines were mainly sent to countries with lower grade fuel. Therefore 9:1 CR is not special at all.
