Odometer 38,630 Miles

Engine size 3781

Auction Details Seller Type Private

Town Broadway

Location Worcestershire

Country United Kingdom

One of just 943 right-hand-drive S1 OTS cars built

Fully restored in 2001, remaining in incredible condition today

Numbers-matching example according to Heritage Certificate

MoT and VED exempt vehicle in the UK

Vehicle was originally cream, painted red in Pakistan, and now Old English White (Paint Code 2680)

Bespoke fitted luggage, cotton car cover, all weather outside cover, E-Type tool roll, original wheel mallet, UK paperwork history file with invoices, previous owners’ restoration photos, as well as a few assorted manuals and catalogues will come with sale

Assortment of spare bits: spare driver seat bottom cushion for taller driver, fuses, bulbs, plugs, leads, fuel pump, pads, filters etc.

Everything taken off has been retained and is available to come with sale

Originally exported for sale in Pakistan at Palad & Co., Karachi, this original RHD E-type left the factory “cream” in colour, as noted on the Heritage Certificate. While not much history has remained concerning its time in Pakistan, it was well taken care of and loved by its owner there, receiving a bright red paint change.

The car was then imported to the UK on November 21st, 1989, and was sold to a new owner for imminent restoration in 1995. Over the period of the next 6 years, it underwent a full and well-documented restoration, with a reported £31,420.91 (not adjusted for inflation) spent on restoration parts and labour; see photos outlining full list of restoration works performed, as it is quite extensive. After completing the restoration, it was registered for the first time in the UK on April 5th, 2001.

In 2003, it was sold to the current owner, who has used the vehicle for pleasure and maintained the vehicle excellently through a local and highly-renown classic specialist JWORX Automotive. In addition to regular maintenance, the current owner has also updated the Jag with a few period-style creature comforts, improving the ease-of-use of the vehicle.

While the vehicle is MOT and VED exempt, the current owner does have record of consistent MOTs, along with their associated mileage as below. The current indicated mileage is 38,630.

28.3.01 – 17,391

28.3.02 – 17,566

5.4.03 – 18,237

8.7.13 – 32,253

10.7.14 – 32,638

9.7. 5 – 33,343

6.7.16 – 34,168

10.7.17 – 34,869

10.7.18 – 35,391

15.7.19 – 36,080

20.8.20 – 36,438

18.8.21 – 37,299

28.7.22 – 37,910

3.8.23 – 38,504

With other projects now at hand, the current owner is reluctant to sell the car, but acknowledges that it is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner. With proper storage and upkeep, the current owner feels supremely confident that this E-Type will provide the new owner with worry-free enjoyment for years to come. 

The Interior

Interior shows in fully restored and beautiful current condition

Excellent red interior colourway accenting the elegance of the vehicle

Period style radio, original type Motorola 707t with modern gubbins supplied by The Vintage Wireless Co. 

The current state of the car is a result of the previous owner’s full restoration, completed in 2001. While the interior has seen a fair bit of use since the restoration took place, the current condition is still very good, and equally remains visually period correct. While the Heritage Certificate shows the original interior trim colour as being black, the updated red comes as an excellent compliment to the elegance of the vehicle. 

The condition of the interior is quite good, with no notable issues spotted, and plenty of character supplied all around. The seats, carpets, trim, dashboard, centre console, and steering wheel are all in immaculate condition, with no signs of significant use seen and everything looking like new. From the shining centre aluminium trim, to the door cards, and boot, we could not complain about any single aspect of the car’s interior condition. The only room for improvement we do see is the underside of the dashboard could be tidied up a slight bit if the next owner so desires. 

The soft top hood is also in great working condition, however some of the rubber trim and seals could be replaced as it is starting to deteriorate slightly. The left side door glass contacts the hood mechanism, so it could use some slight adjustment if the new owner is planning to use it more than the current owner has. 

In the boot, we have an excellent condition spare wheel and tire, purchased at the same time as the other four wheels, a complete tool roll, jack, wheel knock-off wrench, and mallet to assist. The fuel tank and all surrounding metalwork is in great condition and showing no signs of corrosion or leaks. 

The Exterior 

Paint in great condition and the bodywork is straight with even panel gaps

No signs of corrosion or other neglect seen

Underside in incredible shape

The exterior of this E-type is in very good condition, having seen care and attention since its repaint and restoration in 2001. Originally supplied with a “cream” colourway as per the Heritage Cert, the car was repainted in Pakistan to a bright red. However, the red exterior no longer shows, as the car was repainted to Old English White. 

The paintwork itself is in great condition for the time since the restoration, with only a few little imperfections. Notably on the bonnet, we saw a few marks from the road in the front, and some cracking of the paint by the rear of the bonnet bulge and up front closer to the left side headlight. We did also see a few small scratches around the vehicle showing its use over the last 22 years, but none of which were notable or detract whatsoever from the overall appearance of the car. 

Brightwork is in good condition, but does show some signs of use in the form of micro-scratching as seen prominently on the chrome door trims, however these seem to be normal use wear and tear and are not noticeable unless up close. There is no sign of pitting or corrosion anywhere on the brightwork that we could see, and the rubber gussets all seem to be in place. We did spot one small ding in the front bumper on the left side of the car.

Headlights, taillights, and side lights are all in great condition with no signs of fading or other damage from the elements. There are a couple small impact marks from the road, but nothing we could see that detracts from the overall condition. There is a medium sized section of heavy scratches on the front windshield as pictured, but this does not interrupt the driver’s view in any way. 

The underside also shows very well, with no signs of corrosion seen, and no unusual leaks or drips present. Suspension bushes and other joints all appear to be in top condition and ready to be driven with intent. 

 The Mechanics 

3.8 Straight six starts on the button and runs incredibly well

Standard 4-speed transmission shifts into gear smoothly

Tripple SU carbs present and well-tuned

Full engine rebuild during restoration period

Performing flawlessly on our drive to the photo location, this E-Type is smooth and nippy, and is said to brake, steer, and accelerate as good or better than when new. 

In addition to documented upkeep and maintenance performed mostly by JWORX automotive—a highly-reputable classics specialist—the owner has also updated the Jag with a few creature comforts, listed below:

Cooling system: Coolcat fan (USA motor & multiblade fan that fits standard mount and fan shroud)

Silicone hoses by Fosseway Performance

Forlife radiator fluid

Brakes: front 4 pot by Coopercraft

Wheels: five new MWS rims with Dunlop SP sports tyres, fitted July 2015

Lights: updated system by Better Car Lighting

Upgraded shorter PL units to take H4 bulbs

 LED side light/daylight running

 Led dash bulbs

 Dynamo replaced by Fosseway Performance Dynator C42 style (alternator in dynamo housing – preserves period look)

Aldon Igniter Positive Earth 

Electronic ignition in original distributor casing

Lucas Sports Coil

Discarnect battery isolation switch

Fosseway Performance high performance starter motor

With an effort to maintain period-styling, the current owner has made these modifications in order to make the Jag just a bit easier to drive on a consistent and reliable basis, and notes that the improvements that have been made are all reputable brands and are well-engineered.
