Car to be at auction 2/24

Auction description:

Race Retro Collectors' Car Sale 2024

JAGUAR E TYPE Fixed Head Coupe

Registration Number OYC 6L

MOT Expiry Exempt

Chassis Number 1R20707

Engine Number 7R 11406-9

Transmission Manual

Body Colour Regency Red

Recently awoken from a 40-year slumber, this 36,000 mile, manual gearbox, 4.2-litre, Series 2 Coupé has been mechanically recommissioned and returned to the road.

The car we have before us today is accompanied by a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate stating its date of manufacture as 27th February 1970, with a despatch date of 11th March, a couple of weeks later. It's a UK-supplied, right-hand drive car finished in Regency Red with a black leather interior and trim and still retains those colours today. It was initially registered as EWE 666H however in its early years it had a registration change to OYC 6L and is still currently registered with this distinctive number.

This venerable Series 2 has recently been awoken from a long rest of over 40 years. Our vendor's Father, who was the second owner, parked and stored the car in his barn in the early 1980s, with only around 36,000 miles on the odometer and somehow it never got used again. Upon awakening in 2023, the decision was made to treat the Jaguar to a mechanical recommissioning and return it to the road so it could be enjoyed. After 40 years there was naturally a fair bit of work to do, too much to fully list here, but a pile of invoices attest to the relevant expenditure and detail all the attention including a full brake overhaul (new calipers all around, master cylinder and servo assembly), a full set of the correct Pirelli tyres supplied by tyre specialist, Longstone Tyres. Now back in running condition and has been enjoyed on the road for several miles since.

Cosmetically, the car has survived well, owing to its genuinely dry storage, however naturally due to the amount of time it was sat, there are some age and storage related blemishes on the paint and bodywork. This offers the new owner the wonderful option to maintain the car in its current highly original condition, or perhaps to take the recommissioning work to the next stage. Whichever direction is chosen, this charismatic 4.2-litre, manual gearbox coupé offers an excellent opportunity to enter the rewarding world of E-Type ownership.

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?
