    Car titled in Virginia in January of 1989, with verified 61,325 actual miles. Recently purchased-(August, 2006) from the estate of owner since 1989. Car has been stored indoors, Does run, and is very dirty, patchy paint, partially stripped, but very complete and easily restorable. My personal research has led it through a previous register in Cary, North Carolina during the late 1970's. Any additional help in documentation will be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

    Article appeared in "the e-type" june 2007 magazine , it is owned by John D Arrington, Lebanon Virginia USA, he writes that he is begiining the restoration as the car is in a shabby shape , though with all matching numbers. Apparently the original owner was a Mr M.Vincent,Burwell Manor,Burwell Lincolnshire. the car was sold through Roland C Bellamy on Oct 21st 1961. and listed as the only FHC sold that month. Reg nbr was MRW 535.

    As restoration progresses, I must correct my previously recorded information. The body number is actually V1100, as embossed on the small tag attached to inner rear fender flank , this also corresponds to heritage document, and data plate which was extremely corroded and barely legible before chemical strip to verify all numbers. We had not previously disassembeled the car to this extent, have also found the old, original, dried cracked biscuit leather under the vinyl recovering of the seats. Car will require new floors, sills, and such but has all of the interesting features of the early production "flat-floor" cars. It is very "rough" , and probably the dirtiest and most corrosive of any of the cars I have ever restored. But it is uniquely complete. I would love to know more about its first owner, Mr. M. Vincent, and when it came to the US, or any information avaliable.

    MRW xxx was issued by Coventry BC during 1952, so I don't see how this could have been the original issue for a 1961 vehicle ...?
    Equally, although 43HFU would fit geographically (Lincs Lindsey), this registration was issued in early 1964, so doesn't fit chronologically either.

    Thank you Dave, for the information....I have no idea as to the determination of the registration, or how it was issued? I am very interested in any, and all information about the car. I have tried several leads...which have all just "dead ended." I would like to know about the previous owners, when the car came to the U. S.?.....any information anyone has...I will greatly appreciate.....Thanks again.

    Dear John,
    We own the other October car that Bellamy's sold, a RHD roadster car 850203 Only these two cars were sold by them in Oct 61. These cars are like brother and sister and ours was re repatriated to the UK from Florida last year. I wonder if it would be possible to call on you when we visit Hershey in October. We stay with Scott & Crystal at Inn 422 in Lebanon and have done so for the last 10+yrs.
    I would be interested to meet you and see the sister car. Kind Regards from the UK, Tim Snowden

    Dear Tim...my apologies for taking so long to respond to you...I received your letter today and telephoned the Inn to hopefully reach you. I would be most happy to show you "18" as I call it....It is very very shabby... and probably disappointing to you...but you are most welcome to see it. I have boxed up several things like the radio... but will happily let you see everything...it is very very rough...needing everything but has its original lenses...the marston radiator....and all of the other earliest details...I catalogued the information using Haddock's book and attempted to make some contacts via the Jaguar club, but never had any success as to completing the car's early history.....I would love to know even any information on Roland C. Bellamy...and any information, and also more about your car, as I agree, its fascinating to me to discover any history of relating cars... my number is public, and I am easily reached at 276-794-1234... Thanks and Best regards..John Arrington

    I'm not sure how this car, which looks good, and appears nicely built for competition, has been identified as 860018, but regardless, I have 860018 in my garage, very dirty, and quite shabby, but its does run. the trace certificate is 11452, and was extensively researched by myself and Michael Cook in 2007...As recorded in earlier posts, here,...it has all of the earliest features identified in factory records...the white plastic defroster vents, the unshielded rear hubs, its original, marston excelsior radiator......and all switches date from as early as 1960...it has the large, cigar lighter, "ungrounded" as referenced by the factory changes in production.... The engine number, gearbox, and even differential have also been verified, I have owned the car for about ten years now, I have traced it to California during the 1980s, via its original California title, and have even researched back to Cary, North Carolina, via DMV records in the 1970's.

    The above, previous "Anonymous" post was by me.....after seeing the photos of the competition E-type claiming to be "018"....I can attest that my car has its original, Reynolds tubing frame in the front, with its original 860018 stamping, by the factory, on the subframe above the shock mount....Pictures will soon follow!!!
