    CAR HAS BEEN 98% RESTORED AND IS IN THE LAST PHASE OF COMPLETION. WELL WORTH THE FIVE YEAR EFFORT.

    Car to be at auction 1/19

    Auction description:

    1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Litre 'Series I' FHC

    Scottsdale Auction

    ESTIMATE: $140,000 - $160,000

    CHASSIS NO: 1E30327

    Lot Number 4

    According to its corresponding Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate on file (No. 11206), this 1965 Jaguar E-Type Fixed-Head Coupe (FHC) was built on December 7, 1964, dispatched on December 15, 1964 to the United States, and sold new by Walnut Creek Motors to Michael C. Dursey of Berkeley, California. It is further understood that the black interior upholstery was specially-ordered. Mr. Dursey retained the sleek Jaguar until 1973, when it was sold in Washington, D.C. to second owner Bill Denning, who eventually had the car restored over a five-year timeframe, with the work completed in 2010. The rare factory-specified livery of Dark Opalescent Green paint over black upholstery was retained and at the time of completion, just an approximate 49,000 miles had been traveled. Workmanship and attention to detail remain impressive, with the Jaguar’s restoration very well-preserved indeed. Confirming the quality of restoration, this outstanding E-Type was the First Place Winner at the 2016 AACA National Fall Meet held in New Bern, North Carolina, and it was also a First-Place winner at the Carolina Jaguar Club, Inc. Concours d’Elegance.

    Offered from only the third owner from new, this 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Litre ‘Series I’ Fixed Head Coupe is handsomely presented, continues to benefit from its restoration, and includes the aforementioned JDHT Certificate, jack and roadside tools, and tool roll. Within the document pouch are found original papers including the Warranty Booklet, upon which are handwritten the original serial numbers for the Chassis, Engine, Gearbox, and Body. As offered, it delivers a significant opportunity for astute collectors to own, show, and above all – enjoy one of the greatest postwar sports cars ever designed and produced.

    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?
