For sale at Bonhams auction 30th November 2014
www.bonhams.com/auctions/21904/lot/1/
Lot 1
1964 Jaguar E-Type 'Series 1' 3.8-Litre Roadster
£110,000 - 140,000
€140,000 - 180,000
1964 Jaguar E-Type 'Series 1' 3.8-Litre Roadster
Registration no. EFD 747B
Chassis no. 881079
Engine no. RA5525-9

Manufactured in February 1964, this 'Series 1' was supplied new via Jaguar Cars, New York finished in dark blue with matching leather interior. The E-Type's ownership history in the USA is unknown up to 1981 when the accompanying State of Ohio Title was issued to one Joe Maro of Campbell, Ohio. Exported to the UK in 1989, the car was first owned in this country by Mr J H P Hardwick of Cannock, Staffordshire, who had it fully restored by Bob Watson of Marston Green, Birmingham (see letter of confirmation on file). Works carried out included a total body rebuild by renowned specialists R S Panels; engine and gearbox overhaul by C F S Motors, the 'box being the later all-synchromesh type; and an interior re-trim by Suffolk & Turley. Conversion to right-hand drive configuration was undertaken at this time.

The E-Type's second owner in the UK, Robert Anthony Hipkins of Kennington Road, London SE11, kept 'EFD 747B' from 1996 to 1999 when the car was sold to the current vendor via renowned marque specialists Eagle (copy of advertisement included) who have continued to maintain it. Eagle's service invoices are on file together with a copy of the service handbook, Jaguar/Daimler dating letter, and a substantial quantity of expired MoT certificates dating back to 1989. 'EFD 747B' also comes with a copy of Classic Cars magazine (November 1996 edition) featuring it on the front cover and in an article, and a copy of the Birmingham NEC Classic Car Show programme featuring the E-Type as the centrefold. Described as in generally good/excellent condition, this well restored and well-maintained E-Type is offered with aforementioned history, current MoT/tax and V5C document.

Note: wrong wheels and wrong toolkit

For some reason, details of EFD747B/881079 were included in a Coys catalogue entry for Jan 2018. This is obviously an error and Coys will be happy to confirm this. The will probably also be sending me some liquid refreshment to apologise!

In passing, the refurb has gone very well, and the car is running beautifully and looking very gorgeous.
