New Member and new owner of 1967 XKE seeking advice

Just acquired my dream car–a 1967 XKE, currently in primrose yellow, one owner with 23K miles and in need of some cosmetic repair. I’m in the central NY state region and looking for experts in my area–suggestions greatly appreciated!

Well it’s very clean anyway and might leak less oil than my XKs.

Congrats Mary. Nice find!
I’m not an expert but have owned and worked on my E for close to 20 years. I will be in Marcellus, NY which is a pleasant half hour ride west on Rt. 20 from Caz. Be happy to take a look at your car from July 1 on.
Finding mechanical repair experts are tough, E type body work is tougher yet. Bill Wyman - do you know anyone in ROC area? I can’t think of anyone I’d trust in SYR.
Lippincott’s is a good one IF you can get booked. Donovan Motorcars in Lenox, Mass also. You are talking big $ restoration shops. These guys won’t slap some bondo in your rocker panels and spray it.
They’ll want to fix it right on their terms. I suppose it depends on your needs.
Regards,
Dave A.
