Car to be at auction 7/18
www.bonhams.com/auctions/24876/lot/377/

Auction description:
Lot 377
1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 Roadster
Registration no. OCL 300H
Chassis no. 1R1607
£ 100,000 - 120,000
US$ 130,000 - 160,000
The Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale

* Original UK-delivered right-hand drive model
* Three owners from new
* An older restoration, well maintained
* Recent extensive works

This Series 2 roadster was purchased new by one Lewis Essex of Richmond, Surrey on 23rd June 1970, and some 20 years later, on 1st April 1990, was sold to John Hume of London. Used regularly and well maintained by Mr Hume, it was purchased by the current vendor in December 2014. Before then, in 1991, the E-Type had been restored, both cosmetically and mechanically, by Mill Lane Engineering of Farnham, Surrey (bills on file). In 1999 the engine was rebuilt again, on this occasion by Jaguar specialists W&S Autos of Chobham, Surrey, who have continued to maintain the car ever since. New MWS wire wheels were fitted in 2000.

Further extensive works were carried out by W&S following the vendor's purchase (see bill for circa £20,000 on file) and the E-Type is presented today in beautiful condition, driving very well. The car is offered with its 'Operating, Maintenance and Service' handbook; current MoT; UK V5C Registration Certificate; and the aforementioned restoration and maintenance bills.

Sold by its first owner after 20 years and bought by the vendor in 2014, this Series 2 Roadster had by then enjoyed cosmetic and mechanical restoration in the early 1990s, with an engine re-build in 1999 by Surrey Jaguar specialist W&S Autos, which has since maintained the car. Further work by W&S (bill for £20,000 on file) has been carried out and this example is reported to be in beautiful condition and driving very well.

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?
