Car to be at auction 2/12
www.bonhams.com/usa/auction/19680/lot/316/
Note, body # tag auction photo shows R2771, data plate shows R2749

Auction description:
Sale 19680 - The Scottsdale Sale, 19 Jan 2012
Arizona, Scottsdale
Lot No: 316
Recently discovered after 35 years of storage, Early flat floor welded louvered example
1962 Jaguar E Type 3.8 Liter Roadster
Chassis no. 876432
Engine no. R3294-9
*3.8 liter straight six
*Matched numbers
*Rare early XKE
*Welded louvers
*Flat floor roadster
*Stored since 1976

This Jaguar XKE was manufactured at the start of 1962 and features the distinctive features of the original iconic design including welded louver panels, factory flat floors, round brake and clutch fluid reservoirs as well as many other unique and highly desirable early production details that rarely survive on 50 year old E types.

The reason that it has remained in such intact and correct order is that it has literally just been removed from thirty five years of storage within single ownership. An un-tampered matching numbers example the car still retains its 1976 windshield registration sticker and shows just over 63,000 miles on the odometer and 1976 title.

To judge from its condition today, it would seem that it was painted and trimmed in the early 1970s, but was otherwise left unmolested. Despite its long term hibernation, the engine turns freely. Bonhams has received a Jaguar Heritage for the car, which confirms that it was built on December 22, 1961 and was sold new through Jaguar Cars New York, with a delivery date of February 27, 1962 to 'Norwood Laundry,' Brooklyn. Its original color was was Opalescent Bronze with Black interior and top, a desirable scheme that it could be returned to.

Last year's 50th Anniversary celebrations for the E Type drew even more focus to this legendary model. For collectors it has always been the earliest derivatives, which are closest to the original design that have been the most prized and so to find a car such as this flat floors roadster with matched numbers represents a genuinely rare opportunity.

Estimate: US$40,000 - 50,000

I owned 885293 and the body number from Jaguars heritage list was V1362 whereas the body carried V1374 - this must have been done on the production line as the numbers are too close.Perhaps one body was damaged and the other was the next in the line of that colour ?
