Car to be at auction 11/13
www.silverstoneauctions.com/1962-jaguar-e-type-series-1-38-roadster-lhd

Auction description:
NEC Classic Motor Show Sale
1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster LHD
Lot No.: TBA
Registration: 680 XUH
Chassis Number: 877844
Engine Number: R68849
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 3800
Year of Manufacture: 1962
Estimate (£): 55,000 - 65,000
We are informed by the vendor that this particular car was the first car to be exported to New York in Masons Black and, as such, was a special order from Browns Lane. It's Heritage Certificate confirms its date of manufacture as the 8th of August 1962 and it was despatched to the United States on the 17th August 1962.

When new this particular E Type was finished in Masons Black with contrasting Red leather interior and led a much pampered life in the United States until it was repatriated to the UK, in December of 1990 and subsequently purchased by its current and only UK owner. We are informed by the vendor that the car was then subject to a major mechanical overhaul which included removal of the engine which was then completely stripped and rebuilt. As such, it is a leak free unit that runs exceptionally sweetly with no errant noises and strong, fuss free power delivery.

'680 XUH' was then subsequently kept in secure dry storage and was the subject of a sympathetic rolling restoration over the next few years to keep the car in fine fettle. In 2008 the car was the subject of a major bodywork restoration project. The vendor informs us of the presence of paperwork and photos indicating various stages of the bodywork restoration, including the fitting of a new bonnet, and a further bill in March of 2008 for £10,000.

Likewise there has been much expenditure on both trim and hood to complete this beautiful looking car and after 23 years of ownership the vendor has now decided it is time to let somebody else become the custodian of this iconic motor car.

Make no mistake the prices of the best cars in the market today are a fraction of the actual cost to owners who have paid for the work to be done. This car has bills totalling just under £24,000 for parts alone and one could easily spend close to £100,000 on a full restoration, so the economics of resuscitating a dead E-Type just don't add up. Thereofore, cars like this look fantastic value for money. Being sold with a fresh MoT, we anticipate strong significant interest from all four corners of the globe on this truly beautiful motor car.

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?
