From our E-Mail - A Red Jaguar (E-Type) seen in different episodes of the Rockford Files

The above photo did not come with the e-mail - I found it searching Google
 
Hello,
 
I’ve been doing a nostalgic binge watching of Rockford Files the last few weeks (my dad and I watched the series religiously when I was a kid in the 70’s.)  So thank you for your RF filming location blog.  A great resource, adding a fun dimension to the experience. 
 
I’m not sure how to post a question on your blog – so hope this email makes it to the expert.
 
One thing I never noticed long ago – but now do notice is that in very many episodes of the show: there is a particular red Jag E-type positioned in various shots – this car is everywhere (near Jim’s trailer, parked on the street in various downtown shots, driving by Jim’s gold Formula on the road, etc.) 
 
It’s similar to Hitchcock showing up in all his films…
 
Do you know the story of this car?   
 
I did a bunch of web searches – but nothing came up.  Perhaps you know…
 
Best,
Bill
