Note, seller claims it to be 850080, VIN not verified.
This car was the 80th E-Type produced on 10th July 1961 by the Coventry factory and one of the first cars built for export. It's designated country was Cyprus (itself a right-hand drive market) to the local importer - Tseriotis of Cyprus. The car was to reside here all of it's life until 1996 when it was spotted and repatriated for a full and thorough restoration. This work, which included a complete rebuild of the entire car faithfully to the original factory spec, was carried out over the next 12 years carefully and thoroughly by it's dedicated London owner, who is a professional trim expert. A photographic record of the entire process is with the history of the car. It is an outstanding and totally professional restoration to absolute concours standard. The engine of this 'matching numbers' car was rebuilt by VSE Jaguar Specialists of Powys and is still running in!
The car looks magnificent today in it's original and very rare colour combination of Old English white and matching cream leather upholstery with a tan hood.
This car is a complete credit to the previous owner and the time and care that he has bestowed upon it. It is a privilege to own it, drive it and enjoy it.
With the E-Type reaching it's 50th birthday next year, this car can now only escalate in value as it represents such a rare and special opportunity. This car would not look out of place at the Pebble Beach Concours.

This 'outside bonnet lock' is chassis number 80 and was the 80th E-Type produced on the 10th July 1961 in Coventry and one of the very first cars built by the factory for export. It was designated to be exported to Cyprus (itself a right hand drive Market) to the local importer Tseriotis of Cyprus.
The car was to reside here until 1996 when it was spotted as a significant early car and repatriated for a full and thorough restoration.
The work was carried out over the next 12 years faithful to the original factory specification by it's dedicated London owner, who is a professional trim expert. There is a photographic record of the entire painstaking process with the history file of this car.
It now appears to be in outstanding order throughout following this thorough and professional restoration process. The engine of this 'matching numbers car' was rebuilt by VSE Jaguar Specialists of Powys and is described as still running in!
This is a fantastic and rare opportunity to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type (and this particular car is actually 50 years old!), with such a unique and desirable model finished in the stunning and unusual combination of Old English White, with cream leather upholstery and a fawn hood.
