    Car to be at auction 7/16
    www.handh.co.uk/buy/1961-jaguar-e-type-38-flat-floor-coupe/12929

    Auction description:
    Lot No 71
    Make Jaguar
    Model E-Type 3.8 'Flat Floor' Coupe
    Year 1961
    Vehicle Registration 666 WPH
    Chassis Number 860088
    Engine Number R3083-9
    Body Colour Red
    Trim Colour Beige
    Estimate £120000 - 140000

    The 88th of just 175 right-hand drive E-Type 3.8 litre 'Flat Floor' Fixed Head Coupes made, chassis 860088 was built on 9th December 1961 and dispatched some ten days later via Henlys of London to supplying dealer Bentalls Ltd of Kingston-on-Thames, Surrey. Registered in that same county as '666 WPH' on 22nd December 1961, the Jaguar was first owned by J.G. Brigg Esq. An accompanying green continuation logbook shows that the two-seater had relocated to Basildon, Essex and the custody of Douglas Turner by March 1972. Thereafter, it is known to have passed through the hands of William Blyth of Rochester, Christopher John Ward of Northfleet, Richard William Gulvin of Gravesend and Army officer Michael John Dixon; the latter changing the E-type's colour to Red during 1976. Re-registered with the DVLA some four years later, the Jaguar was subject to a Vehicle Identity Check and has its engine number recorded as 7E4531-9. However, this is the number visible to its replacement cylinder head. The number stamped into the cylinder block adjacent to the oil filter mount is 'R3083-9' which is the engine number quoted on the Fixed Head Coupe's Jaguar Heritage Production Record Trace Certificate.

    Although running and driving when it entered the current ownership in 1986, '666 WPH' was soon found to be in need of extensive restoration. Abbey panels who supplied the E-Type monocoques dispensed with any internal rustproofing and the vendor recalls that once stripped to bare metal it was only the car's bulkhead, roof and chassis legs which did not require major attention. Principally comprising filler and solder the original bonnet was discarded with a new one sourced from SNG Barratt. The seller lead loaded the restored bodywork himself and some thirteen years after it was repainted there are no obvious signs of bubbling. The chassis number 860088 is stamped into what appears to be the original factory fitted 'picture frame' and the Jaguar is understood to pleasingly retain its original body plate too. A labour of love over the past three decades, the refurbishment has not long been completed and thus the E-type still requires shaking down / debugging. A notably early and decidedly rare 'flat floor' fixed head coupe, chassis '88' is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, Heritage Certificate, restoration photos, sundry invoices and hopefully a fresh MOT certificate.
