Car to return to auction 8/16

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Roadster
Offered without reserve
Monterey
Chassis No. 875995

This particular E-Type is an early production car built on 13 November 1961, as confirmed by its Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, a copy of which is included. The car was comprehensively restored to high standards, including every major system and aspect of the automobile, resulting in what is described as an exceptional Jaguar throughout. The cylinder head is the original and matches the certificate, while the block itself is from a 1963 model. An obsessive list of work performed and details of the restoration are available for inspection. Subtle upgrades, including a Pertronix electronic ignition and performance coil, a CoolCat six-blade fan, and a modern fuel pump, have been incorporated to enhance the usability and performance of the car without significantly detracting from the authentic appearance of its presentation. Included with the sale are the jack, tool kit, and significant documentation supporting the work performed.

Exterior trim has been re-chromed. The Dayton chrome wheels with stainless-steel spokes are fitted with new Firestone 185-15 whitewall tires with the proper aspect ratios, giving the car an evocative period appearance and correct stance. The top and boot are also fresh, and the interior was restored to the same high standards as the exterior, with fresh leather and carpets. The engine compartment is highly detailed and the trunk is trimmed in tan upholstery, as was done from new.

This is an exceptional example of what is, arguably, one of the most beautiful cars ever designed.

What a hell lot of money for this car! So many incorrect parts (carb linkeage, no welded louvers, pastic instead of brass carb head nuts etc...) and a repro VIN-plate...........


2017-10-16 15:20:52  |  Innes writes:

Completely disagree Stefan. I think that is a sound investment at that price. To buy those correct parts will probably cost the buyer roughly £400. Plus couple of thousand in labour charges. That makes this car good value. Why Etype anoraks have to be so negative about other peoples Etypes on this website perplexes me.

Hi, yes, the brass plugs and carb linkage are not that expensive nor difficult to get. However the VIN-plate being a very poor repro and the lack of the original plate do indeed affect value in some eyes, including mine. They pose some quations. Nice thing though that the JHT certificate includes the original owner! And FYI I don't wear an anorak, sometimes a jacket yes, but mostly a hoodie! :D Cheers!

I stick to my comment: what a hell lot of money for that car!

To convert the bonnet is a high effort work and despite all the bits and pieces currently available you won't get it 100% right.
The VIN-plate - Pekka mentioned it already - is a awful repro, with awful stampings. The point is, that such a car with many incorrect items and still a lot of work to do, scores such a price. While there are other very early and more correct cars out there, which are better, more original and much cheaper.
