Seller's description:

1963 Jaguar E-type Series 1 3.8 FHC

Recently restored at a cost of more than £100,000

Five-speed gearbox conversion

Upgraded cooling system and brakes

Price £169,500

Having covered less than 4000 miles since undergoing a comprehensive restoration, this beautifully presented Jaguar E-type Series 1 is now nicely run-in and ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.

Chassis number 888791 was built on 5 June 1963 as a left-hand-drive fixed-head coupé and dispatched to New York on 14 June. It was finished in Opalescent Golden Sand with Tan interior, and its first owner was recorded as being RL Mytincer.

Paperwork in the history file shows that the E-type was in Virginia by 1980 and it was still there in 2013. Two years later, it was sold to Northern Jaguar in Harrogate and shipped back across the Atlantic. In January 2016, it then passed to a new owner in south-east England.

The Jaguar was in need of a complete rebuild, which took place over the next few years. The E-type was stripped all the way back to a bare shell and the cost of the bodywork restoration alone was more than £40,000. 

The 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine was rebuilt by renowned specialist Classic Motor Cars in Bridgnorth and the standard four-speed Moss gearbox was replaced by a five-speed unit – a popular and sensible modification among E-type owners. 

The braking system was also upgraded, as were the cooling system and fuel pump, and a smaller steering wheel was fitted. An immobiliser was installed and the car’s electrical system was converted to negative earth.

The interior was fully retrimmed in dark red leather and a right-hand-drive conversion was carried out, and the owner even went to the trouble of putting together a full tool kit. 

All of the invoices from the rebuild have been retained in the substantial history file, and there is also an extensive photographic record of the work. More than £100,000 was spent on the bodywork, engine, interior and chrome – a total that doesn’t include further expenditure such as the new brakes and wheels. 

The 3.8-litre Series 1 FHC is one of the most desirable variants from throughout the Jaguar E-type’s long production run, and this car is offered for sale in exceptional condition thanks to its painstaking restoration. With a series of well-chosen modifications, it is now perfectly suited to the sort of fast touring for which the E-type was always intended.

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?
