According to the JDHT heritage certificate, W. Herron Jr MD was the orginal owner and I would appreciate any information of the man who I believe was Woodie Herron, or his family. If anyone can help with the histor if this car before it arrived back in the UK as 'a bag of bits.' Does anyone have the original 3.8 engine or gearbox

Hi, Three months ago I tracked down the original FHC tub V5552 and a total restoration is nearing completion.

It will be re-united with the car, hopefully by June.

Peter, just saw it in the April issue of The E-type magazine!! It looks beautiful even in its raw state. 3 months is pretty ambitious!!

Sorry just noticed that the car is in manchester now so that answers my question of how far the body was found from where he lives , may bee best if someone contacts him in order for him to set things straight

This car ... not the identity, came from the E-Type Race Company in Yorkshire. This car was built with mostly new parts in early 2001 from a new bodyshell supplied by Martin Robey. A journalist blew up the Rob Beere supplied engine due to a sticking throttle at Croft Circuit. Subsequently the car was then sold on to Fred Cliffe minus engine without an identity.

I now have pictures of this exact car in croft circuit taken in 2001 for some unknown reason not displaying the prised WK plate on it , dvla records show it as being re-imported in 2006 , and then allocated its "original" WK plate ,this goes to show how easy it is to hoodwink the dvla into issuing a log book for a car that was built in 2001 from new parts , the car is nice but not a genuine car by a long shot, anyone with any info please message me through xke data

Thank you everyone for the E mails you have no idea how much it means to me, I have uploaded pictures forwarded to me of this car in the E type experience brochure taken in 2001 , and will upload more taken as the car was in build, this car as i have said from day one should be on a q plate and undergo a full sva test , i have forwarded all your e mails and pictures on to the Police and the DVLA fraud office , i am working on an article for the E Type magasine detailing all my findings with pictures and proof i guarantee it will be a great "pragmatic" read for everyone ... well may bee not everyone.

I just found a photo of an E-Tyoe clearly displaying the no. 4262 WK, taken at Trafford Park, but strangely however is that this car is a FHC not a OTS. The car has outside bonnet handles, no bumpers (looks to be used for racing), and what looks like a widened rear arch. I strongly doubt this is the same car as the above, converted from an OTS to a FHC, unlikely.

As of today the DVLA website lists this car as road tax next due: 1st October 2015. And MOT due 16th January 2015, and having a 4.2 engine.
