this late 3.8 litre is actual for sale in my favourite location - the classic motor hub in Gloucestershire:

classicmotorhub.com/showroom/1964-jaguar-e-type-series-1-3-8-fhc/

Description:

- 1964 Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 FHC
- Right-hand-drive UK-market car
- Recent ground-up restoration
- Original glass and registration number
- Optional two-year warranty available

Beautifully presented in its original colour scheme of Carmen Red with black interior, this Jaguar E-type Series 1 FHC drives superbly and is an exceptional example of this landmark British sports car.

Built at the Browns Lane factory on 9 January 1964 as a right-hand-drive UK-market car, chassis number 861457 was dispatched to Edinburgh distributor Rossleigh on 27 January. Almost 60 years later it retains its matching-numbers status, being fitted with engine number RA 5006-9, body number V7314 and gearbox number EB 13086 JS.

On 9 April 1983, the E-type was sold by a Mr Davenport to a new owner, a Mr Hammond, for £3250. Mr Hammond would end up owning it for more than 30 years and had a full restoration carried out during the 1980s. All the expenditure is carefully catalogued in the history file, and by June 1989 – when the mileage was noted as being 84,890 – the car was valued at £30,000 due to its ‘full concours rebuild’.

In more recent years, the E-type passed to a new custodian and was once again restored to the highest standard. The extensive work included a rebuild of both the gearbox and differential, and discreet upgrades include stainless-steel brake hoses, an aluminium radiator – which is a popular and sensible E-type modification – an uprated starter motor, and Polybushes for the front suspension.

As a result, this E-Type Series 1 is in exemplary condition throughout. The interior is pristine and the car is perfectly set off by the chrome wire wheels.

It drives equally well – the performance from the 3.8-litre straight-six engine is exceptional, and the fact that a properly sorted E-type still feels like a quick car today serves as a reminder of just what a performance milestone it was in the early 1960s.

Now being offered for sale by The Classic Motor Hub, this E-type Series 1 FHC comes with an extensive history file and is a fine example of one of the most beautiful and coveted cars ever made.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
