for sale at www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C279533,
Jaguar E-type Series 1.5 4.2-Litre roadster. 2.801 produced between 1967 and 1968. Chassisnumber: 1E16571 Enginenumber: 7E15373/9 Matching numbers. Cream with Black interior and Black hood. Production date 19 December 1967, shipped to New York 4 January 1968. First owner Max Howard picked up the car at the dealer and on the way home wrecked it with only 22 miles on the odometer. He started rebuilding the car himself, but after two years gave up and left the car standing as it was outside until finally selling it in 1989. Through a Florida classic car broker the car came to England the same year and a restoration schedule and estimate was made by a Jaguar restoration specialist from Sheffield for the proud new owner. Unfortunately things didn't go according to plan and the project was taken over by another specialist firm in Sheffield, who then went bust in 1991. Again the project was abandoned until 1994 when it was given to a Jaguar restoration firm in Southam. This firm didn't do exactly as promised and finally in 1995 the car was given to restoration company Route 66 of Walsall to finish the job. By the end of 1996 the car was finally finished, but for the owner the whole process wasn't what he had hoped for and he decide to part with the car in 1997. In August 1997 it was bought by it's new Dutch owner with only 68 miles on the clock. He and the next owner wanted to keep the car in pristine condition and therefore hardly ever used it. When last sold in 2006 it had done a mere 167 miles. Finally the car was being "used" and it now shows a respectable 3.435 miles on the odometer. Here's a chance to buy a car with an unusual history, that has been completely rebuilt after which it has done minimal mileage. Still shining brightly after 16 years since the restoration was finished. It comes complete with a full set of pictures taken in various states of restoration, accompanying Heritage Certificate, bills and documents explaining in full all the work that has been done to the car.
