This Jaguar E-Type Roadster was ordered new at the 1961 Paris Salon by Maclean's magazine editor Ralph Allen. It is an early example that has the hard-to-find external bonnet-latch. It is finished in Opalescent Bronze and was dispatched from the factory on June 9th, 1961 and exported to Canada. The magazine is named as the first registered owner.

This car is the 53rd E-Type Roadster constructed, and the 27th left hand drive example, making it one of the earlies E-Types exported to North America.

In the late 1970s, it was acquired by William Roy Foster. In 2002, it was purchased from William Roy Foster's estate by Eric Trembley, who commissioned an 8-year nut-and-bolt restoration. The fourth owner acquired the car in 2011.

During the restoration, the car was upgraded with a 4 core aluminum radiator, modern rotors and calipers, and the Moss non-sincro transmission was replaced with a new Borg-Warner T5. It was re-finished in its original color of Opalescent Blue over a Biscuit interior, with a Fern Grey top. Since the work was completed, the car has traveled less than 550 miles.

In 2011, the car entered into its first and only event, the national Jaguar Concours. At the event the car took 1st place, receiving a Jaguar Club of North America official judging score of 99.50 out of 100 possible points.
