The car was originally shipped to New York on May 7 1960 on the steamer "Bristol City".. I still have the original shpping advice notice from Jaguar Cars Ltd in Coventry. The original colors (and restored colors) are Imperial maroon and Crème.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
