    Lot No: 670
    1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 ‘Flat Floor’ 3.8-Litre Roadster
    Registration no. 655 MYC
    Chassis no. 850064
    Engine no. R1232-9
    Dating from the first few weeks of production, this vehicle is one of the earliest surviving right-hand drive Jaguar E-Type roadsters (the chassis number sequence commenced at 850001) and was delivered via distributor Henlys to Messrs Spencer of Yeovil. Chassis number ‘64’ was despatched by the works on 14th July 1961, first registered ‘655 MYC’ on 25th August and used by Spencer’s as a demonstrator. The car has features typical of early production models, including the flat floor and teardrop covers for the external bonnet lock.
    Inspected by surveyor and valuer A E Fogg BSc, LLB in December 1990 (copy included), it had been recently taxed for the first time in several years, having been off the road undergoing a total restoration. The vehicle had been extensively refurbished (by marque expert Martin Robey) and was found to be totally rust free, having been professionally repainted in original ice blue. All mechanical components had been overhauled, and the car ran very sweetly with good oil pressure and normal running temperature. All running gear had been overhauled, the only discernible non-original feature being Koni shock absorbers (a period up-grade) and a later production-type radiator. The restoration was unfinished at the time of inspection and was finally completed circa 1992.
    Re-inspected by Mr Fogg in March 2005, the vehicle was found to be finished to a very good standard and to have been well maintained, having covered fewer than 8,000 miles in the intervening 14 years. Now re-united with its original registration mark ‘655 MYC’, the car comes with works-specification optional hardtop and Jaguar tool roll, and has been fitted with Volvo front brake calipers in place of the original Dunlops - a recognised upgrade. Meticulously restored with exacting attention to detail, this very early E-Type ‘flat floor’ roadster is offered with restoration invoices, valuation reports, road fund licence to October 2005, MoT to January 2006 and Swansea V5 registration document.

    I bought this car Nov 2005
    One of the main reasons that i bought 850064 is because of the Bodywork. It is straight and rust free throughout, ever since Martin Robey / Bill jones ( owner from wales ) carried out a full restoration to factory specification apart from the Konies.
    Good oil pressure when hot, Compression test 150 evens on original engine.Icing on the cake
    Everything works apart from the clock and a door lock.
    I drove the car to my local M.O.T sation Dec 2005 , it passed first time with no work to do.
    It Drives like a correct early E type should...Still on thin Radial tyres makes life interesing, original radio - nice patina overall since restoration, hardly been used since 1981.

    This is my 10 th E Type, 7 th roadaster. I normally buy non runners at auction/ scrap yards. I have shipped a few from California rebuilt/ converted to R.H.D,, selling on for profit mainly back in 1987 before everyone jumped on the bandwagon.

    I have been looking for an Early interesting 3.8 roadster to restore for the past 5 years
    must be original R.H.D, not a Red one.I have completely restored 2, 4.2 roadsters for fun. The plan was to find one last car to restore, to keep for myself
    That was until 850064 came along.This car makes better finacial sense than completely restoring one properly : the hard works been done for me.Its ready to Drive this summer, at the push of a button to take me for my Fish and Chips.
