Quentin Wilson describes 2 years into a bare metal restoration of chassis 22 in classic cars magazine, feb 2005 page 47, picture shows a fhc... 860022 ?

860022 was tested by Norman Dewis on Lofty Englnd's orders at Mira in Sept '61 and sold to Colonel Michael Head a Jaguar privateer racer (alloy 120, C type and D type) and Director of Fighting Vehicles at the War Office. Head's son - Patrick Head of Williams F1 - remembers it well and recalls that it was one of the early batch of special rhd cars sold to influential drivers. Now being restored, it has matching numbers and many early features like fibreglass glovebox, welded bonnet louvres and rivetted chassis number plate on the bulkhead. The registration 220 FLU is a transfer and the original number isn't known.

#860022 is curently being restored by Martin Robey in UK to original spec. First owner was privateer Jaguar racer Brigadier Michael Head (father of Williams Racing tech director Patrick Head who remembers the car). History confirms pre-delivery test drive at MIRA by Norman Dewis on Lofty England's instructions. All numbers match including flywheel and rear axle. Early pre-production features still present. Continuous history back to 1974. Restoration featured regularly in Classic Cars Magazine. Curent owner is prominent motoring journalist in UK.

According to original guides, documentations and all information about the early E-Types, body coloured headlamp 'sugar scoops' were only original on the first 500 cars:

850001-850091
860001-860004
875001-875385
885001-885020

So 860022 should not have body coloured scoops.

Hi, really nice car, and it's not your fault, but I am shocked when you write "Interior retrimmed in Jaguar Light Blue by GB Classic Trim, Nuneaton, Warwickshire, UK." Factory Light Blue was a very different colour altogether, that interior looks like no blue in the 1950's and 1960's, the "Dark Blue" was very dark, most people think it's black, and the "Light Blue" Connolly VM.3244 was what most people would call grey. Come to think of it, it is possible your interior is pretty close to it as your photos appear very dark, it would be great if you could have more light, take photos of the interior outside and/or just have more light shine on the interior. I have this dilemma too, my MKV DHC should have the same colour, although it was called "Pale Blue" in the MKV brochures, but it's the same Connolly "Vaumol" hide, "Luxan grain" and code VM.3244. They had a grey one too, simply called "Grey" Connolly VM.3230 which is much lighter. Part of the real problem is the used to have a "Duo-tone" interior for the XK120 called Light and Dark Blue, and because the Dark Blue was almost black, next to it the "Light Blue" would appear both light and blue, but next to the "Grey" it would appear very dark! BTW Jag-Lovers has copies of the brochures where you can see some of this information www.jag-lovers.org/brochures/bro1949/jag_48_19_l.jpg and there are enthusiasts (like me) who have original colour samples, as unfortunately you just can't always trust the experts 100% as some materials (like Rexine and Ambla) are NLA and some are not available in the correct colours. I think there are some unrestored examples to be found on these sites, at least for the Saloons. Cheers!

I have to admit, that I love this light blue colour despite not being original. It is my absolute favorite. "Sand"? is also very nice.....

comment from "Anonymous" about body coloured headlamp "scoops / buckets" is not correct.
There is no official factory documention where the change from "body colour buckets" to "silver colour buckets" is mentioned.
According to Anders Ditlev Clausager in is book "Factory-Original Jaguar E-Type", describing the early 3.8 litre cars "It appears that the 'buckets' may have be painted either body colour, or silver"
So it seems that early cars could have body coloured or silver headlamp "buckets". After the first production year, 1961, all cars seems to have the silver "buckets".
Total production in 1961 was 2333 cars, so it could be that a 1961 E-type, build after the "first 500", had the body coloured "buckets".

Car to be at auction 6/14

Auction description:
The Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale
Collector's Motor Cars and Automobilia
Chichester, Goodwood
27 Jun 2014 14:00 BST
Lot 364
1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 'Flat Floor' 3.8-Litre Coupé
Registration no. 150 ABL Chassis no. 860022 Engine no. R2449-9
£150,000 - 180,000
US$ 250,000 - 310,000
Completed on 30th October 1961 during the first few weeks of production, this vehicle is one of the earliest surviving right-hand drive Jaguar E-Type coupés (the chassis number sequence commenced at '860001'). '150 ABL', chassis number '860022', is the 22nd right-hand drive coupé to leave Brown's Lane and one of the famed early batch of home-market E-Types – no doubt assembled with extra care - allocated to prominent racing drivers and teams. Norman Dewis, Jaguar's legendary chief tester, has a diary note (in the history file) that he personally tested '860022' at MIRA on the orders of Jaguar's racing team boss, F R W 'Lofty' England, prior to delivery to customer M W Head.

Brigadier Michael Head, CBE was a privateer Jaguar racer who successfully campaigned an alloy-bodied XK120, C-Type, D-Type and Cooper-Jaguar throughout the late 1940s and the 1950s. He competed in 100 races between 1949 and 1957, coming 1st in 26 of them, 2nd in 18 and in 1955 came 5th in the Swedish Grand Prix behind Moss and Fangio. His son, Patrick Head, of co-founder and former Technical Director of the Williams Formula 1 team remembers '150 ABL' well, and in a letter in the history file says that his father's strong motor sport relationship with Jaguar enabled him to buy one of these desirable very early cars. Brigadier Head was also Director of the War Office's Fighting Vehicles establishment and a founder member of the Jaguar Drivers' Club, whose Michael Head Trophy Race is named in his honour.

One of the finest and most original early E-Type coupés in existence, '860022' retains its 1961 registration number and chassis plate, and has matching engine, gearbox and flywheel numbers. Interestingly the original registration (150 ABL Berkshire County Council) is one digit previous to a works MGA - 151 ABL - that competed in the 1962 Monte Carlo Rally. Bracknell Motors in Berkshire, the Jaguar dealer who originally delivered this E-Type to Michael Head, campaigned racing MKII Jaguars and had period motor sport connections. The ABL suffix was used on several other competition cars notably 737 ABL on Pat Moss's famous Mini Cooper.

All details, numbers and colours exactly match those listed on the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The car has many early features including in-set bonnet louvres, glassfibre glove box, flat sump, Dunlop brake servo, flat-top dash, Cheney hose clamps, Bakelite brake and clutch reservoir tops, Butlers number plate lights, 1st edition handbook and a Shelly bottle jack. A Jaguar Drivers' Club concours winner, '860022' was fully restored by respected marque specialist Martin Robey over a nine-year period (2003-2012). Only some 1,000 miles have been covered since its completion and the car is presented in superlative condition. The only notified deviations from factory specification are electronic ignition, a high-torque starter motor and alternator electrics.

The car is accompanied by three large ring binders of history containing service bills and ownership details dating back to the 1970s, an old-style logbook and V5 registration document plus a full photographic record of the comprehensive body, mechanical and interior restoration. There is over £100,000 worth of invoices for work done over the last ten years together with photographs and letters from previous owners plus magazine features and records of television appearances. A complete early toolkit and Jaguar owner's wallet containing the correct 1961 books and literature are present also. An instant starter, totally reliable and in truly concours condition, '150 ABL' is currently MoT'd/taxed and needs no work whatsoever.
