For sale at Coys auction 12th July 2014
1966 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Litre Roadster
Estimate: £100,000 - £120,000
Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: 1E13087
Unquestionably the most desirable of the Series 1 E-Types, this stunning and beautiful 4.2 roadster was manufactured on 23rd May 1966 and first delivered to Jaguar Cars of New York, it found its first owner in Richard A Becker of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Later the car is believed to have had a more colourful owner in that the owner believes it was owned by Byron Lee who was undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the history of the Jamaican music industry. As leader of The Dragonaires since the early '60s, Lee helped build the careers of Jimmy Cliff, The Maytals and The Blues Busters, and was instrumental in raising the profile of Ska. He later established Dynamic Sounds, where material was recorded by Bob Marley, The Melodians, Junior Byles and countless other Jamaican greats, as well as Paul Simon, Roberta Flack and The Rolling Stones.
We are informed that E-Type has had a nut and bolt rebuild which was completed earlier in May, which consisted on an engine rebuild with new pistons and the head converted to run on unleaded. Other subtle modifications included a large radiator and electric fan enabling fuss free stop start city driving.
Described as being in excellent condition throughout and finished in the desirable colour scheme of blue with a red hide interior it is supplied with an MoT certificate valid until June 2015, Heritage Trust Certificate, EU taxes paid documentation and is in the process of having a UK registration number issued.
