    Fewer than 1,500 miles since complete restoration nearly ten years...

    Registration: 672 XUD
    Chassis Number: 876086
    Engine Number: R2584-9
    Number of cylinders: 6
    CC: 3800cc
    Year of Manufacture: 1961

    Estimate (£): 75,000 - 90,000


    Introduced in 3.8 litre form in May 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a major sensation when it first appeared, with classic smooth lines and great looks, not to mention a 150mph top speed! With 265bhp and a huge weight saving of over 500lbs over its immediate predecessor (the XK150), William Lyons had created one of the all time most beautiful cars ever to be produced at Browns Lane, Coventry.

    The first cars to be produced were Series 1 'flat floor' Roadsters, which aside from significant competition 'E's' remain the most coveted examples.

    The car we're proud to offer here is a November 1961 car, chassis #876086, delivered new to the USA via Jaguar's New York agents in left-hand drive. It was repatriated back to the UK and to our vendor in May 1991 whereupon an enthusiastic restoration began.

    Some 16 years later, with many fresh nuts and bolts and countless new parts, his restoration was finally finished and our vendors new E-Type was DVLA registered in August 2007. The result? A fabulous Jaguar E-Type in first rate condition with sympathetic attention to detail and now right-hand drive. Being a qualified engineer himself he was competent with all aspects of restoration, and being a privateer owner/user he wasn't restoring to secure a profit margin, which is perhaps the reason the car emits so much charm. It may also explain why it took him some 16 years to complete!..

    Regrettably, being 1991 and E-Type values not being what they are today, the decision was made to drop a lower floor into the driver's foot well to make the driving experience more comfortable. Knowing what we know today, this likely would not have happened, but fear not, for it's a relatively straight-forward task to reverse were one so inclined.

    For our vendor, it was the satisfaction of improving an already beautiful car that excited him and sparked the engineer in him. Once the car was completed to the standard he'd imagined, being an E-Type owner isn't really for him, and for the last nine years fewer than 1,500miles have been travelled, though, the car is often started and run to temperature.

    There is a reasonable amount of information in the history file including invoices for most of the parts that were required for the restoration, the UK V5C, a current MoT and the Jaguar Heritage Certificate which corroborates the matching numbers.

    Car to return to auction 12/15
    www.barons-auctions.com/auction_details.php

    Auction description:
    1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Flat Floor Roadster
    First Registered: 1961
    Registration No:
    Mileage: 2000
    Chassis No: 876086
    MOT: July 2016
    Colour: Red

    This particular car is number 1085 of the run and as its accompanying Heritage Certificate confirms, it was delivered to Jaguar Cars in New York on November 27th 1961. It was repatriated back to the UK and to the previous owner in May 1991 whereupon an enthusiastic no expense spared restoration began. Some 16 years later, with many fresh nuts and bolts and countless new parts, his restoration was finally finished and this fully restored E-Type was DVLA registered in August 2007. The result? The Holy Grail of E-Types in a condition that we would class as a very respectable 7/10. We have now completed the restoration with over 150 manhours spent and with the many related parts required and we now present to you an example which will not only turn heads from any angle but will withstand the closest inspection.

    Guide Price: £100,000 to £120,000
