My 67 E-type

My car is 1E34749, but for a variety of obscure reasons she is known as Sally.

She was built at Browns Lane, Coventry in late 1967 and exported to the USA. As such she is left hand drive and fitted not with triple SU carburettors but with twin Stromberg 175’s. These and other sundry anti-pollution devices result in a significant decrease in engine power.

Fortunately the E Type body shell was built in such a way that the car can be either left or right hand drive. Conversion from one to the other does require purchase of a new steering rack and other parts but is otherwise a “bolt on” affair.

I know little of what happened next, but she was bought in California in March 2009 and shipped to Australia.
