The 100th production E Type FHC, built December 1961. I purchased this car in 2003 in non-running condition. It had remained registered to Ronald Kayser until 2002. The car was in good structural condition, but had very poor paintwork (a mixture of dull Carmen Red with primer in places) and the interior had been badly refinished with cream vinylcoat or similar. (the car was originally Opalescent Silver Blue with navy blue trim). The original 'flat floor', engine and moss box were all in place, together with the original registration (1436 WF). I got the car running and roadworthy (UK Mot'd), before selling it on and accquiring car 860861.
860100 has now returned to Yorkshire where it was originally registered in January 1962.

Purchased from Nigel in 2003. Although mot'd it ran very badly needing considerable work. Full rebuild of engine carried out along with new brakes all round and interior retrim amongst other things. I considered a full strip down and restoring it to original colour but decided just to give it a quick blow over in red to tidy it up. Still a bit scruffy but now mechanically sound. No concours winner though. Now just a good usable car.

This car is mentioned in a letter to "Jaguar Driver" magazine of March 1981 by the then owner, Ron Kayser of Glasgow. He detailed the extensive restoration work he was having carried out (when funds permitted!) saying that the car had not been driven by him since 1976. He hoped to complete the restoration by 1982.

I met up with Ronnie Kayser last year and had a great chat about the car. He gave me some old photos taken when he had it. It was white when he bought it and he re-painted it red. The original owner was Gerald Barton who owned Humber Oil Company, later re-named Humbrol. (Paints ). Sadly Gerald passed away a few years ago but I haven spoken to his widow, Sheila. She remembers the car well and drove it herself quite a lot. Gerald was a Jag fan and had his name down to have one of the first E-Types. It was traded in for a Jag saloon after about 3 years as no room to get the kids in. According to Beverley local archives the car remained registered in East Yorkshire until the mid 70's, about the time Ronnie bought it.( no record of owners though ). I am still trying to trace the owners between Gerald and Ronnie ( about 1965 to 1976 ). Anyone out there know anything ????
