I have been looking at a 1963 E type roadster project. I have owned all sorts of British cars, have had this list of desired cars from my youth and slowly scratched them off, MGB-GT/Check, TR4A/Check, Big Healey/Check, TR250/Check. Now a have a chance to buy an E-type, which has always been at the top of the list. The car is rough, seems complete, parked since the late 70s in apparently dry storage, needs most everything, rust in the rockers and floors, and a little in the left rear wheel well, but fairly solid otherwise (my TR250 was worse when I started). My financial reality is that if I want one it will have to be a project, and also I will do most all the work myself. I have done motors and body's and most everything else on the above cars, but I know those care are all relatively simple and based on common British sedan components. The e-type is really based on a 1950 Le Mans winner more than anything else, so I know it is a little different animal. The purchase would necessitate the sale of my very nice running and driving TR250, and because I have a full time job and am just not that efficient at welding and getting body panels perfectly smooth, will take me years, taking up a big chunk of my available free time. As you may be able to tell I am debating the plunge to be taken here, any words of wisdom from the been there done that crowd?
