RK Motors Charlotte presents this as THE FINEST restored Hemi '67 GTX on the planet. It was a 1st place winner in the invitation only Classic American Performance class at the 2009 Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Cars and was a nearly impossible to find original paint survivor Hemi car with its original fender tag and broadcast sheet.
Tim Wilhelm and our restoration crew first documented the car before carefully taking the car apart, labeling and bagging every nut, bolt and screw. After chemically stripping the entire car, Tim and company took the gracefully aged body to task. Before, during and after photos reveal the extremely minimal work needed to patch the bottoms of the quarters and one rocker - NO other sheet metal was cut out, including the perfect trunk floor. After weeks of sanding, primer went down and slowly, as the panels received more and more attention, the body was ready to paint. DuPont Chromapremier paint was chosen, and the carefully matched WW1 white was laid down. Layers of clearcoat were added and wet sanded and buffed to its current condition. Every piece of exterior trim is original with the exception of the antenna and base, the windows, rocker and wheel lip moldings, lock set, marker light lenses, fender turn signals, and the taillights and bezels. We replaced the 1977 aftermarket wheels with 1967-only wheels which are fully restored and carry a spring date code. The '67-specific hubcaps are outstanding originals which were fully restored.
We sent the motor to noted Hemi expert Larry Shepard for a full-on, no-expense-spared concours restoration. Not far into the engine's disassembly, Larry gave us a call and told us not only was our Hemi a clean one, it was a factory Super Stock piece! The fender tag shows this car was scheduled for build on June 28, 1967, making it most likely the very last '67 Hemi X built. Shepard's went through the engine leaving no part untouched and creating one of the finest detailed Hemis on the planet. Then we restored the engine compartment using original and correct pieces all the way down to the screws that secure the fender tag... Literally days were spent researching the correct finishes on parts through examination of original parts, other GTX's and phone calls to experts such as Frank Badalson and Dave Wise.
The sheet metal underneath was treated to the same care as the top, and sports a fresh coat of white paint. While this was originally an undercoated car we elected to paint the car white everywhere. It would take very little effort to apply the coating if you wish. The chassis and suspension under the car was carefully researched, restored and re-assembled with every piece being exact to factory appearance and specifications.
After we disassembled the interior, we sent all of the chrome trim and pieces for a show quality restoration. Then the gauge cluster went to Auto Instruments, a sample of the original headliner went to SMS Auto Fabrics and the seat belts went to SSnake Oyl Products. New Legendary upholstery and door panels were ordered along with new window cranks and armrest bases from Van's Auto and a new center console, top plates and shift knob from BE/A. Auto Custom Carpet supplied both the rug and the logo floor mats and Mega Parts provided various small parts including the firewall insulation, the glove box liner and the sill plates. The dashboard and steering column were completely torn down, media blasted, cleaned and sent over to the body shop for paint along with the kick panels, center console, rear seat crown, dash pad, speaker grille, steering wheel center cap and steering column trim. The original armrest pads, door jamb windlace, seat backs and side panels were refinished in the proper P6K code copper dye. Finally, we installed the freshly restored wood grain wheel from Gary's Steering Wheels along with an original center cap from Mitchell Motor Parts.
This car is here to show we can build no-excuses, no B.S. show car, which few in the world can rival. Incredibly documented, long term ownership, numbers matching, original sheet metal, award-winning and near flawless in every way.

132609 / 2003 Jaguar XKR
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/dyb9jho
This pristine, low mileage XKR combines traditional old world Jaguar luxury
with a sophisticated supercharged engine and a striking cat-like body to
create a stunning modern classic with excellent performance credentials.
Envisioned to pay tribute to the classic Jaguar XK E sports cars of the
1960s, the first generation XKRs alluring, projectile shaped body combines
the stylish lines of Jaguars XK8 series with freshened R spec trim and
accessories. Painted in a dynamic shade of Zircon Blue that is as clear as
a Caribbean swimming hole, this XKR's seductive steel reinforced monocoque
body panels have never been wrecked or damaged in any way, and display the
excellent build quality British luxury marques are known for.
The chrome trimmed "4.2" badge on the car's rear valence is referring to
Ford's hot supercharged 4.2 liter DOHC 'AJ' V8 which produces a healthy 390
horsepower and a
robust 399 lb./ft. of torque! Utilizing an Eaton belt-driven Supercharger, fixed camshaft phasing and stronger
oil jet cooled pistons, the 4.2 liter 'AJ' is capable of carrying this
rather heavy car to brisk 5.2 second 60 MPH sprints and an electronically
limited top speed of 155 MPH. Tilt the massive blue hood and you'll find a
clean, exceptionally maintained engine bay that has only seen 3,900 miles
per year since it left the showroom. And judging by how clean and well-kept
everything is, I'd venture to say this car was either used as a sunny day
cruiser or, at the very least, kept in a garage most of its life.
Underneath the car, a Bosch "Mechatronic" controlled lightweight ZF 6HP26
6-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels while Dynamic
Stability Control that's complete with Emergency Brake Assist eliminates
wheel spin and ensures a quick stop in the event of an emergency. At the
front of the car, a lightweight alloy crossbeam holds unequal length
wishbones, uprated coil springs and adaptive telescopic shocks, and at the
back of the car, a second unequal length set up includes driveshafts as its
upper links, another pair of uprated coil springs and two more adaptive
telescopic shocks. As part of the XKR's standard Computer Active Technology
(CAT) suspension system, that hardware joins two-stage adaptive ride
control that automatically selects firm or soft damping in response to
driving style and combines with the cars anti-roll bars to enhance both
comfort and handling. At the corners, standard traction control combines
with a Brembo four wheel disc antilock brake system that includes radially
ventilated 13 inch front and 12 inch rear rotors to provide sports car
handling and short stopping distances. On the outside of those rotors, this
XKR's wheel wells are filled with 18 inch green 'growler' capped 'Hydra'
wheels that are wrapped in 245/45 front and 255/45 rear Goodyear Eagle F1
Open the doors on this low-slung XKR, and you'll find an ivory Connolly
leather and Burl Walnut interior that is exactly what you would expect from
a Jaguar. The heated power adjustable seats (12-way driver, 8-way
passenger) show little to no wear at all and, the door mounted two driver
memory system allows you to completely customize your driving position.
Between the seats, the cars great looking ivory console holds an "R"
branded leather wrapped MOMO shift knob above Jaguars famous J-gate gear
selector and a 'sport mode' button which adjusts the cars shift points for
maximum use of the AJ V8s power. Below the console, dark carpet that is
protected by color matched floor mats contrasts nicely to the ivory seats
and console while perfectly matching the cars pristine dash and two-tone
door panels. Inside that two-tone Walnut and silver trimmed dash, a host of
gauges complement standard JaguarNet navigation and a 320 watt Alpine
premium audio system that includes eight speakers and a trunk mounted six
disc CD changer. In front of the driver, a 'growler' branded wood and
leather MOMO steering wheel sits on a tilt and telescoping column and
features buttons for the cars audio, forward alert radar adaptive cruise
control and integrated Bluetooth phone system.
With its unmatched combination of old world craftsmanship and contemporary
modern conveniences this 2003 XKR will make you feel like an A-list
celebrity on even the simplest errand runs!
