Car now in the UK being prepared for restoration by CMC. From Jaguar Magazine:
www.jaguarmagazine.com/early-e-type-found-restored/

One of the first 500 E-Types produced by Jaguar has been found in pieces in France and is to be brought back to life by world-class restorers Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth (CMC).

Chassis No. 875256 is one of the very early 3.8 left hand drive, open two seater, outside bonnet lock models with all matching numbers.

It was delivered new to the Belgium Motor Company dealership in Brussels in July 1961 and was subsequently sold to 'Societe de Civel Immeubles en Afrique.' It resurfaced in France in 2015 and records indicate that it was imported from Luxembourg in 1975.

The car is very complete, although in parts, and was bought by the previous owner to be restored. He gave it to French restorers who started work on the car, but shortly after took it away and kept it safe in his garage in Grigny in the southern suburbs of Paris, France.

David Barzilay, Chairman of CMC, said: "Chassis No. 875256 is literally in boxes in our workshops awaiting a much needed nut and bolt restoration. It will be a challenging project but all the factory parts are there and our skilled fabricators and technicians will do all they can to save as much as the original car as possible. It will roll out of our workshops just like it left Browns Lane in 1961."

He added: "We are currently delving through the car's history files to find out more about its life. These early E-Types are sought after by collectors and investors alike, and the fact that they keep on resurfacing after years in the dark is still amazing."

CMC is famous for having restored some of the most historic E-Types, including Lofty England's Chassis No. 4, the Lindner-Nöcker Lightweight and 1VHP, the first RHD Coupe off the production line and the first of only four outside bonnet lock cars.

In 2016 and after 2,956hrs, they completed the restoration of E-Type Chassis No. 15, also found in France in a very sorry state. This was the fifteenth right-hand drive fixed-head coupe E-Type to leave Jaguar's production line in 1961 and the press car that turned heads at the Scottish Motor Show that year.

Seller's description :

JAGUAR 'E' TYPE 1961

The 256th 'OBL' E-Type

 In May 2017 after an initial inspection in France we bought Chassis 256. Rather in a sorry state the car subsequently underwent a full nut and bolt restoration here at CMC. No stranger to cars arriving for restoration in this order. As ever, we payed particular attention to returning the car back to its original specification. In this case, Cream exterior paint with a Black leather interior.

 Chassis No. 875256 was delivered new to the Belgium Motor Company dealership in Brussels in July 1961 and was subsequently sold to ‘Société de Genie Civil Immeubles en Afrique.’ It resurfaced in France in 2015 and we believe it was imported from Luxembourg in 1975. The car was very complete when it arrived with us, although in parts, and was bought by the previous owner to be restored. He gave it to French restorers who started work on the car, but shortly after took it away and kept it safe in his garage in Grigny in the southern suburbs of Paris, France.

 No doubt, this is the purest iteration of the Jaguar E-Type. Having restored some of the earliest and most famous cars to date, we can now offer this exceptional car for sale.

Paris, France 2024

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster

€180,000 - €200,000 EUR 

Chassis No. 875256

Desirable early “flat floor” example made in the first year of E-Type production

Restored by marque specialist Classic Motor Cars between 2018 and 2020 at a total cost of more than £180,000

Matching-numbers chassis, engine, and gearbox; accompanied by a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate

Finished in its factory-correct Cream over Black colour scheme

Chassis 975256 is one of these incredibly collectible early examples, featuring a “flat floor” body with welded—rather than pressed—bonnet louvres, and external bonnet latches.

The car was completed on 19 July 1961 and left Browns Lane eight days later, destined for mainland Europe and resplendent in Cream over a Black interior with matching Black soft-top. According to an accompanying JDHT certificate, the E-Type was supplied via the Belgian Motor Company in Brussels to first owner, Societe de Genie Civil et Immeubles en Afrique. By 1975 the car was registered to a Professor Jonny Santi in the French commune of Mont Saint Martin, nestled on the French border between Belgium and Luxembourg. Santi eventually sold the car to Anton Revins in 2015, who in turn sold it to Bruno Kessas that same year. In May 2017 the car was acquired by marque specialist Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth.

After being repatriated to the UK the Jaguar was subject to a no-expense-spared restoration by CMC, with 17 invoices issued between February 2018 and February 2020 documenting a total expenditure of £182,719.76. Today, this beautifully restored and highly correct early E-Type presents in immaculate condition.
