Finished in gunmetal silver grey with red leather interior, this outstanding E-Type 'Series 1' 4.2-litre fixed-head coupé is un-restored and original, and still on the same wire wheels and Dunlop RS5 cross-ply tyres it left the factory with 50 years ago. The E-Type was first registered on 9th April 1965 as 'MMP 144C' to a Mr Ivan Wren of Kimpton, Hertfordshire, who was 67 years old when he took delivery. After 10 years of ownership, by which time the E-Type had covered only 4,900 miles, Mr Wren's doctor advised him that, in view of his age (he was now 77) he really should not be driving such a fast car, so he duly sold it to his best friend, William Arthur Alderton, who registered it on 14th August 1975. Almost certainly equally advanced in years, Mr Alderton kept the Jaguar for one month, covering around 100 miles, before selling it with an approximate mileage of 5,000 to Gordon Charles Davidson. Mr Davidson registered it on 25th September 1975 and changed the registration to 'GCD 621' on 15th October 1975. The car was in his possession for two years before it was purchased by the present owner, who registered it on 14th November 1977, with a mileage of 6,425. On 12th December 1977, the vendor changed the registration to '10 KPJ', reflecting his initials, and subsequently to the present '282 XKE' (on 5th October 1981). 'XKE' is, of course, the designation by which the E-type was known in the USA.

This car earned a 1st place award at the Jaguar Drivers Club International XK Day Concours d'Elegance at Dodington in 1978 and another 1st place at Mallory Park in 1979. It has been regularly serviced, as required, over the years; even when stored for long periods, and has always been kept in a temperature-controlled environment, thus maintaining the bodywork in near-perfect original condition. The interior is all original and, apart from some wear to the driver's seat, appears spectacular. The engine sounds very healthy (50lbs oil pressure at tick-over at 50°C) and the car manoeuvred well for the photoshoot.

In the year 2000, the original wire wheels were refurbished and refitted with the original RS5 cross-ply tyres. In 2011, the braking system was fully overhauled and original parts replaced as necessary. These have been preserved and are included in the sale. The clutch and cooling system were overhauled also, but the clutch mechanism itself is still the original. At the same time, a full set of new 72-spoke Series 1 'curly-hub' chrome wire wheels shod with Dunlop SP Sport VR radials was purchased for road use. '282 XKE' is therefore suitable as either a highly collectible museum piece on the original wheels and tyres or, with the new chrome wire wheels and radial tyres fitted, could be used by the enthusiastic collector on the road.

The car comes with the original owner's wallet, service voucher booklet and green logbook, together with a V5 registration document, 12 MoT certificates (including the current one) and other miscellaneous paperwork. The current recorded mileage is 7,438 and it is highly likely that this unique example is the lowest mileage and most original Series 1 E-Type in existence. We doubt if there will be another such as this one offered for sale again.
