This very early E-Type is the 102nd right-hand drive roadster completed, the chassis numbering sequence having commenced at '850001'. For the last 27 years the car has been in the care of the current owner, a highly skilled craftsman with 50 years motor-trade experience and numerous restorations to his credit, who thus was particularly well qualified to carry out its renovation. Work began in 2000, prior to which the E-Type had been in storage.
During the restoration, the body was fully stripped of components and paint, fitted to a jig and all corroded panels replaced as necessary; these included the bonnet, floors, transmission tunnel, inner and outer sills, boot floor, boot lid and doors. All joints were then sealed by the traditional method of 'lead loading', while careful attention was paid to ensure tight, accurate panel gaps were achieved. This was followed by a full, bare-metal repaint in the original Jaguar cream.
The vendor fully rebuilt the original engine, which was then re-installed by Classic Restorations (Scotland) Ltd of Alyth. Drive-train components were inspected and replaced as necessary; new electrical wiring fitted throughout; and the hydraulics completely overhauled. All brightwork was inspected and replaced as necessary. The interior was then professionally re-trimmed in red to a very high standard and a bespoke mohair hood fitted. Only some 200 miles have been covered since the rebuild's completion earlier this year and the engine is not yet run in.
Representing a wonderful opportunity to acquire a fully restored example of the Jaguar E-Type in its earliest and purest form, '1150 UR' is offered with old-style continuation logbook, current road fund licence, V5 registration document, fresh MoT and a quantity of restoration invoices and photographs.
