Advertised for sale 29 January 2019 on carsales .com.au asking AUD$125,000. The seller’s description follows:

“The Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms this factory LHD example was manufactured on the 16th June 1966 with a date of despatch of 6th July 1966. The original distributor is noted as Jaguar Cars, New York, USA.  The car’s original colour scheme was opalescent light maroon with a black interior.  The original dealer and first owner are not noted.  The car’s early history is not known, however, there is an import approval on file dated 13th August 1992.

The car is understood to have been imported into Australia by Jaguar E-Type specialist David Whiting.  The car arrived into Australia in a tired but drivable condition.  Whiting ultimately refurbished the car, which included a bare metal respray (photos on file), an engine rebuild, conversion to right hand drive and fitting a manual gearbox (with overdrive) from an early Jaguar XJ6 4.2 Litre.  There is a QLD Safety Certificate on file dated 14th September 2005 at which time the mileage is noted as 9,165 miles.

The car was kept by Whiting for a few years as his own personal E-Type.  He used the car from time to time and it was seen occasionally at historic motor sports events in NSW and QLD.  The current owner purchased this E-Type from Whiting in September 2007 at which time the odometer was at 9,325 miles.  The car was then on QLD registration 444 CXN.  The new owners also used the car sparingly and it was laid up for some time before being given to Wayne Park Autos in Brisbane, QLD to recommission in late 2016.

From October 2016 to February 2107 in excess of $30,000 was spent to return this E-Type to a roadworthy condition.  Work included: significant electrical repairs, overhaul overdrive unit, refurbish brakes, clutch & suspension, replace engine mounts & gear linkage bushes, engine out service, overhaul carburettors, detail engine bay and other miscellaneous works.  The roadworthy certificate on file dated 14th February 2017 notes the mileage as 9,926 miles.

Today the odometer reads 10,386 miles which confirms this E-Type has again been sparingly used in the last eighteen months or so.  As a result its owner has made the decision to pass the car to its next custodian. Today this Jaguar E-Type presents as a nice driver. The car starts easily and it is immediately noticeable the engine has a worked cam. The exhaust note is more aggressive than your average E-Type!  Once she warms up the car idles smoothly, but with a distinctive edge.  The clutch is quite heavy, suggesting it has been upgraded.  Given all of the money spent, one would expect it to drive really well . . . and it does!  The engine pull strongly through the rev range, the gear change is firm, the car handles well and it stops as you would expect.  Inside the cabin everything is clean, neat and tidy.  The black upholstery is in excellent condition all round, as is the dash, steering wheel, instruments and controls.  The paint work on the car is presentable from say a metre.  It has a reasonable gloss, but many nicks, scrapes and stone chips are evident.  Some of the panel gaps could be improved, particularly on the bonnet would benefit from being realigned. Structurally the car looks to be very good all round.  There is no rust evident in the body and the car looks very clean and solid underneath.  All of the exterior trim, chrome and the wire wheels are in reasonable condition.  Highlights: - a well presented nice driver - in excess of $30,000 recently spent. - mechanically sorted and ready to enjoy. - excellent original colour scheme. - matching numbers chassis and engine. - realistically priced at $125,000.  The car is currently registered in Queensland (as 951 WZP) with an expiry date of August 13th 2019 and it has a valid Queensland Roadworthy Certificate".

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?
