THE CONDITION

Fully repainted to exceptional standard in original Primrose Yellow

All original panels and trim

Rechromed knock-on wire wheels

New sills and some floor repairs carried out but as much originality as possible was retained

Fantastic paint finish with no evidence of corrosion or damage and only tiny flaws in the paint

Superb chrome, badges and exterior trim

Original black hide interior showing very gentle patina

New carpets

Three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel

Charming overall inside and in lovely order

Modern Bluetooth/USB stereo head unit

Original tools and jack

This is an absolute stunner of a car, having been professionally repainted to a truly high standard in its original Primrose Yellow. The finish is superb and has no obvious flaws, nor any evidence of damage or corrosion. 

It was treated to new sills when it was recommissioned along with some localised floor repairs, but is otherwise completely original other than the fresh paint and come chrome parts that were replaced, along with rechromed wire wheels. 

The chrome and trim are very good, with all the original badges and glass.

Inside, the E-Type is in beautiful overall condition with stunning black leather seats showing a very gentle patina, but it’s a genuine low-mileage cabin and aside from new carpets the only deviation from original is a modern stereo head unit, which is easily replaced. 

The door cards and headlining are in great order, as is the rear load bay.

All of the dials and controls work as they ought to, while the overall condition of the cabin is lovely, offset by a vast bank of switches and a smart three-spoke wood-rimmed sports steering with E-Type centre boss.

THE MECHANICS 

4.2-litre straight six XK engine

Genuine low mileage unit

Constant 40psi oil pressure at idle

Suspension, braking system and steering overhauled during recommission

Starts and runs beautifully

Recent new discs, pads, ball joints and stainless-steel exhaust system

All suspension bushes renewed

Under the bonnet you’ll find Jaguar’s venerable 4.2-litre XK engine, the car’s original unit that matches the engine number on the log book. It has covered less than 36,500 miles from new and runs beautifully once warmed through, while the brakes, steering and transmission feel great. 

Overall, it’s a stunning example of a Series 1.5 E-Type – beautifully presented inside and out and accompanied by a fascinating backstory. It’s gorgeous and truly unique.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
