Car was at auction 9/10
www.historics.co.uk/previous-auctions/25th-september-2010/1961-jaguar-e-type-s1- ...

Auction description:
Auction Date: 25 September 2010
Lot 50 - 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster
* Registration: DSU 377
* Chassis Number: 850202
* Engine Number: R6666-9
* Odometer reading: 20835
* Estimate: £65,000-£75,000
* Hammer: Sold
* Plus Commission: £61,462.50
Chassis number 85202 was supplied to its first owner, a Mr. J. H. Lawson of Newcastle Upon Tyne, from Glovers of Ripon on the 23rd October 1961 in its current colour of British Racing Green. It was purchased by the vendor in 1999 from Oxley Threads, who had preserved the vehicle in dehumidified storage following a nut and bolt restoration in 1990. Between 1990 and 1999 the E-Type hardly turned a wheel other than for periodic servicing and cleaning. For the last eleven years it has been used and enjoyed in Spain and England as part of a small collection of classic cars.

In 2006 the vendor commissioned a professional refurbishment opting for sensible upgrades allowing the vehicle to cope with 21st century motoring without spoiling its originality and patina. In the past four years DSU377 has been treated to Coopercraft front calipers, aluminum radiator with integral electric fan, new brass header tank,
Luminition electronic ignition, and high torque starter 
Dyno/Alternator.
 In addition to these improvements from the standard specification, the following has recently been carried out by Marque specialists: a respray in original British Racing Green,
retrimmed seats,
new floormats,
new door hinges,
new rubber seals,
new hood,
new hood cover and a complete cylinder head rebuild.

This most desirable of flatfloor E-Type Jaguars is supplied with its original Moss gearbox and is described by the vendor as in "excellent condition throughout, being tight and rattle free, it can be driven any distance with confidence." With the imminent 50th anniversary of the E-Type in 2011, this car represents a sound investment opportunity and would be a sure crowd pleaser at any event lucky enough to have it.
