    Car to be at auction 7/16

    Auction description:
    The Silverstone Classic Sale 2016
    1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster Chassis #62
    Registration: OSL 662
    Chassis Number: 850062
    Engine Number: R1176-9
    Number of cylinders: 6
    CC: 3.8l
    Year of Manufacture: 1961
    Estimate (£): 140,000 - 170,000

    Chassis #62 was distributed to Scotland via Henleys of London as a demonstrator for potential customers in Edinburgh and the surrounding area on 14th July 1961. It was later sold in the first week of September and first registered on the 8th September 1961 with the registration number 3122 SR. It was destined to remain in the Edinburgh area for most of its life until traveling deeper into Scotland, where it currently resides with our vendor. Number 62 is extra special in the history of E-types in that it has spent a very quite life in Scotland living under the radar and having had just five, geographically close, owners from new. The result of this sheltered life is that until now, its whereabouts have been a mystery to historians and always listed as one of the missing 92 early cars. We are pleased to be offering this car on the open market for the first time, finally placing it correctly in the timeline of the E-type.

We are pleased to be offering this car on the open market for the first time, finally placing it correctly in the timeline of the E-type.

    Much like many of its sister cars, #62 has over the years lost some of its distinguishing early features which has partly helped to hide the significance of this car until now. While missing some of the more obvious early features the car retains not only the much revered 'flat floor', but in fact a whole myriad of other specific very early features including the split-link throttle linkage, thicker screen chrome mouldings and smooth cut-away groove at the top of the A-post cappings.

    From studying the comprehensive accompanying history file, the car appears to have been subject to both major and minor restoration works. In the mid to late 1970s, it appears to have benefitted from a significant restoration both mechanically and bodily. At this point, we can see from accompanying invoices, that what we believe was the original 'outside lock' bonnet was replaced with a slightly later one by its owner at the time. Originally finished in Sherwood Green with a Suede Green Interior and French Grey roof, it was during this restoration that the car was repainted Carmen Red, the colour which it wears today and re-trimmed with its current lovely black interior.

    It was again sympathetically restored in the 1990s, which included another full engine rebuild. More recently under current ownership the car has been subject to yet more renovation to safeguard this rare car for the future. This considerate restoration took place over a period of 18 months and consisted of much bodywork including a full repaint in its current Carmen red. Presented with #62 is an excellent history file that dates back to 1975 and of course includes a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The history file details much of the cars life in Bonnie Scotland through invoices from the 1970s to the present day.

    Sold for (£): 140,630. Car now on ebay:
    www.ebay.co.uk/itm/322216658285
    Classified ad asking £224,995. Seller classicconnectiongroup, 29k miles.

    Description:
    Jaguar E Type 3.8 Roadster, red with black leather interior, 1961 chassis no 62! UK matching numbers flat floor car, originally supplied with outside bonnet catches. Showing 29,000 miles with heritage certificate and service file going back for many years. This is an incredibly important piece of Jaguar history and we feel very fortunate to own it and to able to offer it for sale. It has spent all of its life in Scotland and was originally a demonstrator for the Jaguar main dealer in Edinburgh. In the early seventies the bonnet was replaced with the standard inside lock and pressed louvered type, if only the owner back then realised how rare this car was! However it was probably only worth at the time the price of an expensive meal today. We have already sourced the bonnet catches and the louvers, so it is our intention to return the bonnet to its original form. The car is in superb condition bodily, the paintwork is perfect and the interior is in lovely condition. The engine bay is presentable but would benefit from some improvement. Mechanically the car performs perfectly and the engine and gearbox are faultless. This is an opportunity to acquire the rarest model E type in existence at a realistic price. UK Home Market supplied matching numbers cars with outside latches can fetch in excess of four hundred thousand pounds after full restoration. Even the horses were stunned at how beautiful this car is when I was taking the photographs in the New Forest. Enthusiasts may notice that the registration OSL 662 could stand for OutSide Latch and chassis number 62.

    Strange, the wipers park on the left as if this is a LHD car?

    @Anonymous: desite the fact that you are right, I looked closer and it is possible to see, that they park on the left side but are RHD wipers. So the wiper parking position must have been tweaked or a LHD wiper motor was installed but the wiper themself are RHD ones.

    Cheers!

    Should this aged car not have outside bonnet locks - must have had a new bonnet at some point?

    Perhaps reading the all above information will answer that question.

    Bought in '71 by Ian Simpson for £250 as a rusty but complete car. He rebuilt it using original engine, gearbox and back axle which it still has. Sold in 1979 in part exchange with an MGB for a TVR Taimar.
