Gearbox no. EJ 5463

Without Reserve

To be auctioned on Friday, January 20, 2017

Sold for $308,000

The 1965 roadster on offer is a later 4.2-Litre model with the all-new synchromesh gearbox and more comfortable seats than on earlier examples, while retaining the covered headlights and thin side-lights and taillights that are considered most attractive and desirable. Built in October of 1965 and originally delivered by Jaguar Cars of New York, it was acquired by the current owner as a project, with all the important "matching-numbers" components and showing 36,000 miles, which the owner believes to be correct, as the engine had not been re-bored. The consignor subsequently completed a bare-metal restoration of the car to the very highest of standards, only recently completed. Its bodywork fits beautifully and boasts show-quality paint in the gorgeous factory color, Opalescent Dark Blue, as well as a properly finished interior in Cinnamon leather--a stunning combination.


The engine was rebuilt with new pistons, bearings, and timing chains, and was dynamically balanced to ensure smooth operation. The cylinder head was correctly machined with new valves and tappets, so it also runs quietly, as expected. The braking system is all new, including the master cylinder, servo, and calipers, with the front calipers having been updated to a four-piston configuration, for improved braking that meets modern standards. The rear suspension was rebuilt with the differential gears changed to a 3.21:1 ratio, using the torque from the engine to cruise easily at higher speeds. Similarly, the cooling system was improved with a high-volume water pump, alloy radiator, and 16-inch 3,000 cfm fan to avoid cooling problems.


Superbly restored to drive or show, and offered with a correct tool kit, driver's manual, removable hardtop, JDHT Certificate, and original chassis plate, this is among the most striking and best-restored E-Types to have been offered in recent memory.

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?
