    For sale at Bonhams Goodwood auction on 13 September 2014

    www.bonhams.com/auctions/21907/lot/300/
    Fully race prepared, FIA papers
    1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Lightweight Competition Coupé Replica
    Coachwork by Jaguar Racing Panels
    Registration no. 437 YUJ
    Chassis no. 876362
    Engine no. Block Number: 047 (Crosthwaite & Gardiner)

    The body/chassis of this lightweight E-Type were constructed by Rod Jay of Jaguar Racing Panels Limited, Nuneaton. It is fabricated entirely from aluminium with strengthening in the sills to give greater rigidity for better handling. The car was constructed by Valley Motor Sport, whose proprietor Nigel Morris is one of this country's foremost specialists in the preparation of E-Types having worked on and built front-running cars for Jon Minshaw, Gregor Fiskin and many others. Recently Nigel has also been working on and sorting out the original lightweight '4 WPD'.

    Built by Valley Motor Sport's sub-contractor, Phil Hepworth, at a cost of approximately £60,000, the wet-sump engine incorporates a Crosthwaite & Gardiner alloy cylinder block and wide-angle head; Cosworth pistons; Arrow steel crankshaft; 3" lip seal; steel flywheel; Weber carburettors, etc. Dynamometer tested by Tim Adams, it produces around 365bhp.

    The car has been built with original components and parts supplied by various recognised specialists including RS Panels, Rob Beere Racing, Custom Cages, B & G Developments and SNG Barratt, while the interior has been trimmed by Suffolk & Turley. '437 YUJ' was built to run in the 50th Anniversary E-Type Challenge but in the event was never used. Built as a front-runner with no expense spared, it is nevertheless perfectly usable. Totally unused since completion, the car is offered with current MoT/tax, V5C registration document, full FIA/HTP papers and photographs documenting the build from day one.
