Jerry’s “MIK Jaguar” is up on Bat:
For those who are not familiar with out late, dear friend Jerry Mouton, and his car “MIK Jaguar”, this is, by FAR, the BEST driving E-Type I have ever driven. If you’re looking for an E-Type to be driven as it was designed to be driven, you will be hard-pressed to find a better example. This car is beautiful, and mechanically rock-solid, and cosmetically excellent. I have driven it several times since he passed away, most recently just two days ago, to perform a few very minor repairs, and ensure it is 100% ready for sale. I can state without reservation that it needs NOTHING! It looks great, and runs magnificently. I would not hesitate to jump in it, and drive cross-country tomorrow, if asked.
And, it includes MANY spares - a complete set of spare 6" wire wheels, with nice, sticky 50-series tires for auto-crossing, a spare Moss box, spare generator and starter, a set of Koni shocks and new springs (swapped out in favor of adjustable shocks years ago), and a literal mountain of small parts - gaskets, bearings, seals, filters, various switches, gauges, trim, chrome, etc., etc. It even includes a nearly complete original tool roll and Thor hammer.
As most of you will be aware, Jerry was an avid auto-crosser, and this car was a force to be reckoned with, when fitted with the spare 5-series wheels and tires. I’ve driven it in auto-cross many times, and the handling was absolutely SPECTACULAR, typically coming in only a second or two behind even such cars as Porches Boxsters.
If you know anyone in the market for a Series I E-Type coupe, send them a link to this ad. If you knew Jerry, and the car, please go to BaT, and add some comments, letting potential buyers know what an opportunity this really is.
