This auction is for a Jaguar E Series Parts Car. It was saved from the crusher a while back, and now it has to find a new home. This was a donor car for a car that was being restored and it does still have a few parts on it.The car has the knockoff wheels,independant rear suspension,one good fender for the right side,a good lower cowl piece, steering components,doors that open and close and more.This is a rolling chassis.The car has rusted out floorboards and two rusty fenders that go with it.

Presented in Gunmetal Grey with a red leather interior, this car is a joy to behold and needs to be seen in the metal
Accompanied by its Heritage Certificate, original toolkit, and operating, service and maintenance books
The very appropriate cherished number, 'XKE 42E', is included in the sale
‘1E14831’ was imported from the USA a few years ago and was the subject of a two-year complete ground-up restoration and upgrade by the "Carriage Company" to bring it to a very high standard.
The work included the following which has all been photographically documented:
Bodyshell dipped and processed with SPL treatment.
FABS upgraded bonnet frame.
All chrome work to a very high standard.
New wiring harness and all ancillary electrical components replaced or overhauled.
New high-torque starter motor and alternator fitted. Electronic ignition.
Cooling system upgraded incorporating a Revo fan.
Engine completely stripped, re-machined, new pistons fitted with all internals replaced
Head conversion and upgraded to unleaded fuel. Stainless steel downpipes
Carburettors stripped, re-machined and full service kits fitted with all alloy parts highly polished.
All original special nuts and bolts zinc plated. All standard nuts and bolts replaced with new stainless steel.
Bearings, track rod ends, ball joints etc replaced
Engine Bay, cam covers fully polished as were all other alloy parts
Interior trim replaced by Aldridge Trimming in Wolverhampton.
New red hood and hood bag in mohair and all carpets and glass replaced.
All switches and gauges checked and overhauled.
Conversion to right-hand drive.
At an early stage of the restoration our vendor also chose to suitably upgrade the car as follows:
Upgraded space frame
Wider Triple-lattice stainless steel wheels with low profile tyres
Stainless steel header tank
Classic Fabrications full stainless steel exhaust system
Koni Shock absorbers
In November 2017, the car was coated with Nanolex Si3D, a cutting-edge silica-based coating which it simultaneously protects and creates a glass-like shine.
Included with this special car is the very appropriate cherished number plate, ‘XKE 42E’, which in itself is a very valuable item, along with Jaguar Heritage Certificate 42018, Toolkit and Jack, Maintenance and Service Handbook, and a new tailor-made indoor cover. This is a very special E-Type offered with a realistic estimate when you consider what it would cost to buy and restore to this standard today.
