Did not sell.

Auction description:

RM | Sotheby's - VILLA ERBA 25 MAY 2019

Lot Number 162

Body No. R 4044

Chassis No.877481

Engine No.R 6027-9

Fascinating ownership history with two owners from new; single ownership until 2014

Many decals in the trunk lid of the hotels the first owner visited when he was touring with the car

Original paint and first interior Opalescent Dark Blue over red leather

Truly a spectacular E-Type in every regard

In 1962, Albert Smith of New York purchased this Jaguar E-Type to drive and enjoy, though most certainly not his primary means of transportation. His many vacations included trips to Europe with his E-Type, which he and his wife used to tour the continent. Mr. Smith stayed at the finest hotels during his lengthy trips, commemorating each visit with decals he acquired from each hotel. These were carefully affixed to the inside of the boot lid, and there they remain to this day. Mr. Smith took great care of his Jaguar, yet it has never been fully restored, as evidenced by its overwhelmingly original condition throughout, down to the factory applied Opalescent Dark Blue paint and red leather interior.

In 2014, this E-Type was acquired from Mr. Smith by its current owner. Understanding the significance of such an original car, the current owner wisely chose to restore only the mechanical aspects of the car, including the 3.8-litre engine, four-speed gearbox, rear axle, brakes, and suspension. Everything was done to a high standard, but with a sensitivity to maintaining the original appearance and patina. This sensitivity to originality is illustrated by how the original blue top has been preserved with a new soft top cleverly sewn underneath the original, in order to keep the car waterproof without compromising its charming patina.

This is arguably the finest example of an unrestored Series 1 E-Type in existence, presenting an extraordinarily rare opportunity to own a Jaguar of such history, character, and lovely original patina that is seldom seen.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
