Car to be at auction 7/14
www.coys.co.uk/auction.php

Auction description:
Lot 355 - 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 litre Roadster
Estimate: £58,000 - £70,000
Registration Number: PGN 485E
Chassis Number: 1E1778

Only 1,705 right hand drive roadsters were built between September 1964 and September 1967 with this particular example produced on the 3rd April 1967 and was delivered new to Henlys of London and acquired by its first owner Mr Williams of Southall. Subsequently the car was exported to the US in 1986 and was in Tennessee for four years, during which period it was restored and rebuilt by Leo Goff Racing with associated invoices included in the file. In 1990 the car was re-imported to the UK and was purchased by the vendor from the E-Type Centre in 2001.

The vendor has used the car regularly during the summer months and dry stored in a Carcoon throughout winter. Included in the history file is a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, buff logbook, invoices, 20 consecutive MoT certificates and a current MoT valid until April 2015 and a full service was completed in April 2014.

Finished in Midnight blue with a contrasting red hide interior the car boasts a Kenlowe fan for improved stop start city driving and an immobiliser/alarm. A highly usable and delightful E-Type this example is described as being in good condition throughout and a very desirable motor car.

Car to return to auction 9/14
classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php

Auction description:
Lot number 139
Estimate £60,000 - £65,000
Description Jaguar E-Type S1 4.2 Roadster
Registration PGN 485E
Year 1967
Colour Blue
Engine size 4,235 cc
Chassis No. 1E1778
Engine No. 7E12949/9

The Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file confirms that this UK supplied RHD car was completed on 3 April 1967. Painted dark blue and trimmed in black leather piped blue, it was delivered to Henlys in London. Its first owner was a Mr Williams of Southall. The buff log book shows various changes of ownership before the car was exported to America in in 1986.

Its Tennessee owner passed it to Leo Goff Racing who rebuilt the car. Various photographs on file show the extent of the work done which brought the car up to standard while retaining its RHD steering position. By 1990 it had returned to the UK having been imported by a gentleman from Leeds.

During the early 1990s it appears to have had its speedometer replaced, the 19 old MOTs on file showing a jump from 62,886 miles to 3,444 miles. By 2001 this had risen to 12,418 miles, at which point it came into the hands of the vendor who bought it from the E-Type Centre to celebrate his 40th Birthday. Used regularly during the summer months, the odometer now shows just over 20,500 miles. Dry stored in a Carcoon when not in use, it has been regularly serviced and maintained by Cardiff specialist Bernard Coly, invoices on file showing the work undertaken.

This highly desirable, sound and useable UK supplied Series 1 Roadster is MOTd until April 2015 and will be driven some 120 miles to the sale.
