Car to be at auction 7/17
www.silverstoneauctions.com/jaguar-e-type---series-one-3-8-coupe

Auction description:
Silverstone Classic Sale 2017
1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Coupé
Lot No.: 448
Registration: 801 DBU
Chassis Number: 860709
Engine Number: R6443-9 (Head), LC9985-8 (Block)
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 3781
Year of Manufacture: 1962
Estimate (£): 100,000 - 120,000
(+buyer's premium of 15% including VAT @ 20%)

This is a beautifully restored and fine example of a 1962 Series I 3.8-litre Jaguar E-Type Coupé, one of just 1,799 in right-hand drive. Built in the summer of '62 and supplied to the UK home market, this E-Type still retains its original registration mark of "801 DBU" as confirmed by the JDHT Certificate on file. An older, but comprehensive restoration has brought the car up to a fantastic overall condition with specialist maintenance since that time preserving and building upon a great basis. The evidence for all this is on file, and over the last year over £45,000 has been spent with a prominent E-Type specialist carrying out the following work: a complete interior re-trim, and a comprehensive engine rebuild (including polished and ported head, larger valves re-bore +.40, new bearings pistons etc. and lightened flywheel).

Since then, it has been Dyno tested with the print-out indicating that it was producing 267bhp at the flywheel at 5500rpm. It also benefits from an upgraded 'Elite Racing' five-speed gearbox,(the original Moss gearbox is included within the sale), and complete clutch pack. It has also had a full suspension rebuild with Polyurethane bushes and Gaz dampers, as well as a 22mm vented brake kit, including Fosseway 4-pot callipers and special piston assembly at the rear. Naturally, the best EBC 'Green Stuff' pads are fitted front and rear. Finally, a new Fosseway finned (Series 1) aluminium radiator cools the engine which has a Hi-Torque starter motor fitted with a C42 Dynator, also by Fosseway, including a change to negative earth, so a Voltmeter replaces the Ammeter.

Enhanced engine performance comes from an FIA Exhaust Manifold, a 2" SS exhaust system by Ecosse, and a 123 Electronic ignition system. It sits on new, triple-spoke, painted 15 x 6J wire wheels, as per 1962 spec, and new Pirelli Cinturato CA67 tyres.

The paintwork has been professionally detailed and machine polished to a Concours standard. The car comes with full detailed files and photographs of all the work carried out and is also accompanied by an original Series 1 Book Pouch and owner's handbooks. As with a great number of E-Types supplied to the UK, and indeed the cooler climates of Europe, it is likely that this example was unable to escape the inevitable frost damage to its original engine block and an identical MkII 3.8 block was sourced as a replacement at some point. Mated to the original and matching numbers Cylinder Head, this fully rebuilt engine pulls with great strength and enhances the overall driving experience.

In essence: a rare and beautifully restored right-hand drive Coupé that has received many sensible upgrades for greater reliability and more enjoyable driving.
