It is not often we have the opportunity to auction true survivor cars with the current way of thinking to restore and retro fit our most beautiful classics, but in this instance, we have an example of a truly original Series I, 3.8 Roadster. Still showing the original body tags in the boot, axle diff, gearbox casing, gearbox top cover and engine block and even the original crayon marks on the bulkhead, this fully matching numbers example, with wiper motor date coded, is a real collector's item. Offered in Opalescent Golden Sand with upgraded biscuit leather, the car was first purchased by prominent businessman, Mr. E. D. Benedetti in February 1964 from Jaguar Cars, New York. Mr Benedetti owned the car until 1987 when it was purchased by Mr F. Diangelis Jr. of New Jersey. The vehicle resided with Mr. Diangelis until 2010, when it was imported in to the UK by its enthusiastic current owner. When the vendor had spotted the car in the summer of 2009, it was clear it had been virtually unused for, we believe, 25 years and frankly unloved, despite having been held in the same collection for some 13 years. The clutch had completely ceased, which looking at the mileage would make mechanical sense for that time as at 50,000 - 60,000kms, they are due to be replaced and the car appeared to have been parked up since that time. Thankfully, he seized the opportunity and decided to repatriate the E-type by undertaking a re-commissioning, allowing him to own, revive and enjoy the car himself.
The changes involved in the re-commissioning were reasonably extensive and included front and rear brakes, a new clutch, a head gasket- completed just 500 miles ago, extensive rebuild of the original SU carburettors and new exhaust. All of these works are supported by numerous bills housed within a comprehensive history file which also includes a very rare, original E-Type Operating, Maintenance and Service Handbook, original jack, hammer and hood bag. The current owner has always resisted the temptation to restore this roadster and, instead, enjoys receiving far more attention at Goodwood meets than 'run-of-the-mill' E-Types. The owner's hope is that it will remain an original car but with the current values achieved for restored examples, what would you do with this great example of a true driver's car?
