Car to be at auction 7/17
www.brightwells.com/classic-motoring/leominster-classic-vintage/leominster-class ...

Auction description:
Registration Date 1970
Make & Model Jaguar E-Type S2 4.2 Coupe
Colour Opalescent Blue
Registration Number TBA
Chassis No. 1R27815
Engine size 4,235 cc
Engine No. 7R11035-9
Documents Due to have a V5C and a new MOT; NOVA ref; mileage warranty docs; 2 x US Certificates of Title; invoices; handbook
Estimate £60,000 - £65,000

Built in March 1970 for the US market, this remarkable E-Type has effectively had just three American owners from new (two from the same family) and has only covered 13,000 miles in its 47 years to date, backed up by various documents on file.

It was first owned by Jim Cox of Colorado Springs who kept it for 17 years but barely used the car before selling it to F&R Import Ltd of Engleton, Colorado, with a written affidavit from a Notary Public dated 2nd January 1987 confirming the mileage as 881 at that date. They quickly sold it to a local gentleman, Karl Morgan, and carried out much work on his behalf including a full engine rebuild plus numerous other jobs with bills on file amounting to some $14,600.

Various other invoices chart routine servicing over the next 20 years (the mileage being stated as 10,925 on an invoice dated April 1995) including a new wiring harness and electrical system overhaul by Vintage Jag Works of Blackfoot, Idaho, in 2010 at a cost of $4,557. Another letter on file dated 2nd March 1989 confirms the mileage at that date to be 4,819.

At some point ownership transferred to Karl's son David, of Idaho Springs, from whom the vendor acquired the car last year with a written affidavit from David Morgan dated 21st July 2016 certifying that the odometer reading at that date of 12,990 miles was correct.

Since arriving in the UK, the car has been treated to a thorough going-over at ADR Engineering of Wokingham to sort out any niggles, including a full service, new front brake discs, various rubber mountings, seals, bushes and hoses plus a new battery (invoices on file). Starting easily and running nicely as we moved it around for these photos, it is due to have a fresh MOT in time for the sale and the vendor has applied for a V5C so it should also be UK registered and ready for a new owner to drive away.

With sparkling Opalescent Blue paint, good panel gaps and appearing very sound underneath, this 'matching numbers', ultra-low mileage S2, with just three private owners in its first 46 years, looks a snip at the sensible guide price suggested. Or you could join the queue to buy one of JLR's S1 cars being rebuilt in Coventry under the 'E-Type Reborn' programme with prices starting from £285,000. You do the maths...

Car to return to auction 11/17
online.handh.co.uk/m/lot-details/index/catalog/8/lot/14156/

Auction description:
The Imperial War Museum Duxford Motor Car Auction 15/11/2017
Lot 109
1970 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 Coupe
Estimate: £60,000 - £70,000

- Warranted 13,000 miles from new in the hands of three American owners
- Power steering, four-speed manual transmission, Black leather upholstery
- Checked over by ADR Engineering of Wokingham since being imported to the UK

Finished in Opalescent Dark Blue with Black leather upholstery, this particular example - chassis P1R27815 - was supplied new to Jim Cox of Colorado Springs. Fitted with power steering and four-speed manual transmission, the Jaguar had covered just 881 miles by the time he sold it to F&R Import Ltd of Engleton, Colorado as an accompanying written affidavit from a Notary Public dated 2nd January 1987 confirms. Acquired by local enthusiast Karl Morgan thereafter, the E-Type returned to F&R for various works including a thorough engine overhaul with bills on file totalling some $14,600. Routinely serviced over the next twenty years (the mileage being stated as 10,925 on an invoice dated April 1995), the two-seater also benefited from the installation of a new wiring loom and general electrical refurbishment by Vintage Jag Works of Blackfoot in 2010 ($4,557). At some point ownership transferred to Karl's son David, of Idaho Springs, from whom the UK importer bought the car last year with a written affidavit certifying that its odometer reading of 12,990 miles was correct. Since arriving in the UK, the Jaguar has been checked over and treated to a full service, fresh battery, new front brake discs and rubber mountings, seals, bushes and hoses by ADR Engineering of Wokingham. Said to be in `very fine condition throughout', this highly original, `matching numbers', low mileage E-Type is worthy of close inspection.
