    Car was at auction in '08

    Auction description:

    Finished in red with black upholstery, this particular example was reportedly converted from left- to right-hand drive by Henry Pearman's Eagle E-type company. Entering the current ownership via the renowned specialist for £23,775 in 1999, 'FAV 59C' is since understood to have had attention paid to its "back axle, rear springs, shock absorbers, floors / sills and interior trim". Upgraded with a Getrag five-speed manual gearbox, stainless steel exhaust and Coopercraft brakes, it has also been treated to "a new battery, hoses, body seals and wheels / tyres". Apparently given a major service by Wat Jag Ltd (2006) and entrusted to Classic Performance Engineering for a new clutch / engine fettling, the E-type is said to be "in fine condition with regard to its mechanics, paint and bodywork". Used for two recent French tours, 'FAV 59C' is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until June 2009.

    Currently enjoying the vehicle and would appreciate any information on the history of this vehicle to add to the file.

    Spam prevention question (must be answered):
    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?
