Car to be at auction 11/17

Auction description:
The Imperial War Museum Duxford Motor Car Auction
Lot 57
1962 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Roadster

- Repatriated from America in 1989 and believed to have covered just 2,200 miles since being extensively restored the following decade

- Originally finished in Cream with Red upholstery and a Blue roof (the same livery it pleasingly sports today)
- Sympathetically improved and recommissioned during the current five-year ownership (hi-torque starter motor, improved oil filtration, polybushed suspension, new in-tank fuel pump etc)
- 'Matching' chassis and engine block numbers

According to an accompanying letter from Jaguar Cars Ltd, this particular example - chassis 877233 - was built on 2nd May 1962 and originally finished in Cream with Red upholstery and a Blue hood. Despatched from Browns Lane to Jaguar Cars New York, it remained Stateside for twenty-seven years before being repatriated by J.G. Johnston Esq. Purchased from the latter by M. Butcher Esq., the E-type was treated to an extensive restoration including conversion from left- to right-hand drive between 1990 and 1995. Paperwork on file indicates that much of the work was carried out by Andrew Morgan and MG Engineering of Great Yarmouth. Although, the two-seater still required fettling when acquired by previous keeper Brian Marshall of Hitchin during January 1995 as assorted bills from the likes of XK Engineering Ltd, SC Parts Group and SNG Barratt testify. Sparingly used by Mr Marshall, 'VSU 331' is thought to have covered just under 2,000 miles in his hands. Dry stored for a couple of years prior to entering the current ownership during June 2012, the Jaguar has since been recommissioned. As well as new gaskets, its 3.8 litre straight-six engine gained a new hi-torque starter motor and improved oil filtration system. Pleasingly, the cylinder block appears to be the car's factory-fitted original, while its cylinder head looks to be a correct-type replacement (from another pre-1963 E-Type). A fresh in-tank fuel pump was fitted and the fuel system gone through. The suspension was polybushed and the brakes overhauled with the rear subframe being removed, checked over and repainted too. Starting readily upon inspection and presented in its original livery, this delightful E-Type has been exhibited at several local car shows and is expected to possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.
