I know this car from some 20years ago when it was first found derelict in Sunderland UK. At the time it was carrying a scottish Reg Number obviously confirmed by the Rossleigh Jag Dealer info above. The car was moved to further up the NE Coast some 20miles and I know the lad (now bloke!) who restored it. If you are still the owner I would like to hear from you. Am I still a Jag fan after all this time? course I am I'm here arent I? And my daily drive? an XJ8 BRG/Beige trim location Cambs UK

Just fitted a 5 speed T5 box from Derek Watson. It has transformed the car, reduces engine revs by 700 at 70mph and 1st gear is silent, the gear changes smooth. Coupled with the optional 3.54 US diff the acceleration is tremendous too. It may not be original but I've kept all the bits if I ever sold it to a purist. Just back from the Silverstone Classic festival and it performed better than ever.

Car now offered at:
colour Opalescent Silver Grey
interior colour black
mileage 142.427 km / 88.500 mi
Chassis No. 860013
Engine No. R2127-9
country United Kingdom
The Colour of Opalescent Silver Grey complimented with Black Bucket Seats just exaggerate the incredible visual impact, this wonderful E type.
YSG 595 was one of the 5 Scottish Motor Show Cars, produced in October 1961, Chassis number 13 out of just 133 FHC/RHD cars built in 1961, comes to the market having been cared for, by one Fastidious Owner for the last 28 years.
Whilst this is an extremely rare collectable E Type, this car is not an exterior Bonnet Lock Car, as this was a feature discontinued with Chassis number 86004 FHC/RHD.
A point confirmed in the extensive History file of this car by the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust.
A history file for an early car such as this is so often found lacking. In this case the file is an eye -watering testament to the care & attention lavished on YSG 595 since owned in 1982. Included in the file a copy of the Original Buff Log book, also the production record trace certificate with the Original Car Handbook, all can be seen in chapter one! In a file that includes a detailed diary of each and every remedial task diligently undertaken over 28 years.This diary includes the cost/ and appropriate bill reference. The completed file amongst the very best I have ever seen, is a credit to the owner but most importantly a very valuable underwrite, for a car that stands out with Rock solid Provenance & exceptional Investment credentials.
Over the years recommended improvements & modifications have been undertaken always with careful guidance from Marque Specialists & with further Driving Pleasure in mind.
These includes , 5 Speed T5 Gearbox, Cooper Craft front brakes, Gaz front & Koni rear shock absorbers, kenlowe thermostatic cooling Fan , 6" Competition Wire Wheels, Goodyear 205/70 NCT Tyres,Six Branch Classic Fabs Exhaust, spin on Oil Filter, Electronic Ignition, Alternator, Solid State Fuel pump,Polly- bushed steering, Halogen Headlamp bulbs,
Most importantly, given the Historical significance of "Chassis nos 13 " All THE ORIGINAL PARTS have been retained including the Original Moss Gearbox & Cracked Cylinder Block . ( With these parts Chassis nos 13 is a matching Numbers Car )
The car is an absolute delight to drive , the 5 speed Gearbox silky smooth, giving wonderful access to Revs & Torque for which this legendary Jaguar 3.8 engine is renown.
This is a real Drivers car, presented with a Patina that fully does justice to the levels of care lavished over the years.
Mechanically a faultless car well suited to both the rigours of modern roads and a joyous blast in the country side.
We are very privileged to be able to offer this very early Jaguar E-Type for sale.
