    Car was at auction in '07
    www.brightwells.com/classiccars/Catalogue/tabid/322/Default.aspx

    Auction description:
    Body colour: Red
    Date Manufactured: 1964
    Registration Number: AFM 522A
    Chassis Number: 888892
    Engine Number: RA6580-9
    Engine: cc: 3781
    History:
    This particular car is about as good as E-Types get. An early Series I car with faired-in headlamps, bucket seats and an aluminium dash that could have come straight out of a fighter plane, it is powered by the original 265bhp snarling 3.8-litre straight-six that it was designed for – faster and more free-revving than the softer 4.2 that replaced it in late 1964.

    The biggest weakness of the early cars was the clunky Moss gearbox, but you'll have no embarrassing graunchy moments in this car because it has been fitted with the later synchro box which performed beautifully on our brief test drive. Said to have been fully restored in 1989 and not touched since, it has excellent panel fit and is described as "mechanically A1". Oil pressure and temperature remain exactly where they should and the whole car feels tremendously alive and responsive on the road.

    Given the astronomical rise in contemporary Aston and Ferrari prices in recent months, it can only be a matter of time before the market wakes up to how seriously undervalued these early E-Types are. Buy now while you can still afford it!
    Guide price 17,000
