This car is mentioned in a letter to "Jaguar Driver" magazine August 1982 by the then owner, David Stafford, of Watford England. He stated that it had just been totally rebuilt with alloy dash and centre console, which had been covered in black vinyl by a previous owner.. Also some "date of build" labels were still on the car-some as early as Jan/Feb and April 1961. He stated that the car had its original cylinder block, gearbox, back end and brake and clutch master cylinders. Colour was Carmen Red with black interior.

Oh Dear! I used to own this car in 1970 and had paid £650 for it. It was registered as a 1963 car at that time so presumably had originally been an export for the first two years. I wish I still had it! It was the second car I ever owned, the first being a 1955 Austin A30 of 803cc. When I picked the E up I nearly killed myself in the first half mile, the E having a tad more power than the A30! In 1970 it was a questionable Orange colour and the windscreen wipers only worked when they felt like it. I was 21 at the time and got stopped more times than I care to remember. I p/exed it for £300 against a MK2 Cortina having been done by the boys in blue for dangerous driving. Looking back - they were probably right. My best was 145 up the M1 with the hood down. I also got stopped going round Trafalgar Square for having two people on the boot rack. Happy days. I may be able to dig out some photos and supply outrageous stories if the current owner is interested.
