This right-hand drive coupe is offered from the collection of the late David Ham, the long-time Jaguar enthusiast, who was also a highly accomplished Lister-Jaguar driver between 1970 and 2010. Manufactured on 11th December 1963, it was sold via distributor Henlys of London to agent KDM Cherrington Ltd. of London W1, for onward delivery to its first owner, a Mr. N. Bailey of London NW1.
Between 1969 and 1972, the car had four owners, all of whom were in the Hertfordshire area, and in the late 1970s it was acquired in a derelict state by Brian Jones of Dunstable, Bedfordshire. David Ham purchased the car in its unrestored state in the mid-1990s, and after being kept in storage for some years, a full restoration was embarked upon between 2006 and 2013.
Works carried out during this time included full restoration of monocoque and both front and rear subframes, as well as a complete overhaul of the braking, hydraulic, cooling, fuel and electricial systems - the last of which included the fitment of a new wiring loom and Kenlowe electric fan. The car was immaculately resprayed by Retford Auto Finishers in its correct original colour of Opalescent Dark Blue, and was fully re-trimmed by Jaguar specialists Aldridge Trimming of Wolverhampton. It is believed that the engine was rebuilt by the previous owner, and the car has covered just over 3,000 trouble-free miles since completion.
The car is accompanied by a comprehensive restoration file, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, (copy) old style logbook, current V5 registration document and a valid MOT to April 2018. Described by the private vendor as being in generally excellent condition, "223 HJJ" represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a rare example of the Jaguar E-Type in its earliest and purest form.
