THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Here from John Shuck's Estate we are proud to offer his Jaguar E-Type, a car which he owned since 1974. When acquired by he and his wife it was a mere 8 years old and as a result of this it still retained all of its original supply paperwork which makes fascinating reading today.

This all confirms that the original owner was Jack Larman of Indianapolis and Miami Beach, Florida, who ordered it through Lee Calan Imports of Chicago in Spring 1966. A letter dated March 2, 1966 states 'A Brand New 1966 Jaguar, 4.2. XKE Roadster. This car will be White with Black interior, Black Top, AM-FM Radio, Chrome Wire Wheels, White Wall Tires, Heater, Grille Guards, front and rear.' According to the original Manufacturer's Warranty, the car arrived with him on March 29, 1966. Alongside this document, are the original plastic folio, Maintenance Schedule, handbook, Bill of Sale, invoice, etc.

Mr. Larman kept the Jag for roughly 8 years, it then passed to Paul Frey in Indianapolis, which led it to the Shucks, as Mr Frey was a colleague of theirs. The car has remained in their family ever since, as their career paths brought them to Cincinnati, then East to Connecticut. In the 1970s, a fire hydrant blew up at street level above John's garage, flooding the garage and the Jaguar with it. By then the car had covered some 60,000 miles, but it would travel no further.

Despite this relatively minor incident, daunting task of refurbishment for someone who invariably did his own work meant that somehow the project was 'put on the backburner', although initially the engine was rebuilt properly, and is certainly 'free'. The flood and long term storage were not kind to the E -Type's bodywork, however, the Shucks passion for cars always meant that the car was kept with the intention of getting it back on the road, but this never happened. Knowing that some bodywork components would require replacement, original sheet metal was acquired occasionally at swap meets and accompanies the car.

In recent years, John had received a Heritage certificate which confirmed information which he knew anyway, of Larman's purchase, but also that it is a matching numbers car and that its scheme of White/Cream and black was how the factory had built it.

The late Series 1 E-Type is coveted as the most usable as all series, with its known history from new and matched numbers status this is a hugely worthwhile project.
