For sale by auction at Coys - CLASSIC DAYS AT SCHLOSS DYCK
LOT 236 - 1961 JAGUAR E-TYPE FLAT FLOOR ROADSTER
ORIGINAL GERMAN DELIVERY
Lot Number: 236
Reg. Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 876083
Model: E-Type Flat Floor Roadster
Sold new to Germany through Peter Linder, famous for having the Linder-Knocker Low Drag Coupe built this matching numbers flat floor roadster was sold new to Gunter Groner. The car was then sold to a US serviceman John Hogen who bought it from him and took it with him back to Minnesota. Hogen then traded the car for some specialist farm equipment, and that owner sold the car to the last now retired surgeon owner in the 1980's. The car changed hands in May 1990 to Dr Paul Delong in Lowa before being repatriated back to European shores.
Supplied with its original special purpose built Knockoffs, and fitted with a very rare early steering wheel it displays 69,000 km which is believed to be correct. Copies of the paperwork are on file and the car is offered with UK V5 registration.
The subject of much recent work by UK specialists, this wonderful restored eType has had much recent expenditure. This includes a mechanical engine and gearbox rebuild, new suspension and braking systems and is reported to drive very well indeed. Bodily the car was subject to a repaint and is presented in excellent overall condition. These models are rare at the best of times, let alone one that has been restored to this standard.
