Lot 230 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster
Registration no: E 2233
Chassis no: 1E 12882
This example was originally exported to Sweden new by the Browns Lane factory on 25th May 1966 as described by the enclosed Heritage Certificate. It was then imported back to the United Kingdom in 1981. Latterly, during the period of 1997 to 1999, the car was the subject of a comprehensive body and mechanical rebuild. It was this time that it was converted from left to righthand drive. It is still in pristine condition having covered just 5,000 miles since its completion. A number of improvements have been attributed to this car most importantly a tubular stainless steel exhaust manifolds and stainless steel exhaust system as well as four-pot callipers and ventilated front discs all surrounded in 6½" chrome wire wheels.
She comes complete with a fully documented history file including a photographic body rebuild, a Jaguar/Daimler Heritage certificate and VSE engine rebuild sheets and invoices. It should also be noted that not only does this represent an extremely fine example of Jaguar's iconic E-Type but that the cherished registration, E2233, is also included in the sale.
