E Type FHC (Dan Mooney)
first E Type, circa 1984
was my very first E Type Jaguar, a 1966 FHC bought for the princely sum
of 2,650 quid (GB pounds) in 1984 when I was 22 years old. I bought my
pride and joy from a gentleman called Jeremy Broad, who used to travel
around England buying and selling such cars. Jeremy's son, Guy Broad, is
now a well known UK based restorer of Jaguar XKs.
my wife has always been incredibly supportive of my various automotive
and business endeavours, judging by her facial expression in the third
photo below, I think she had some doubts about my entry into the wonderful
world of E Type Jaguars.
wonder where my old car is now, and would dearly love to buy it back if
I could find it! Over the next few weeks I plan on sorting through all
my old files to see if I can come up with a chassis number, or any other
clues that might help me track it down. I seem to recall the number plate
was GEA 275D, although my memory from that long ago is about as fuzzy as
the polaroid photos!
