The Jaguar 'E' Type was a sensation when it was launched in 1961 and the most people have forgotten that the coupe versions were more expensive than their roadster counterparts and those days are returning especially with very good examples.
This is an original right hand drive fixed head coupe, which dates from 1964, and it has been in the current owners hands for the last seventeen years and he believes that it has only had two owners prior to him. It received a full ground up restoration in 1991 which was completed with a full photographic record, and since then it has completed a mere 2,500 miles. In 1998 it was used by Quentin Wilson's BBC TV Leviathon program and we are also informed that in 1999 the cylinder head was converted to allow the car to run on lead free petrol.
This then is an exceptional example which appears to still retain its original registration number, 399 KUE, and further more the owner believes that it has only covered 47,800 miles since it was first registered.
One of the best, which of course it exempt from road fund licence, and should not be missed!
