Sports Car Monthly (4/05) comments from Bonhams London, UK auction 12/6/04 - Lot #687: "S/N 1E34152. Eng #7E118989. Red/black. RHD. 4.2 liter. Ex-US. Converted to RHD during 1994 rebuild, only1,000 miles since. S2 brakes, higher final drive, electric cooling fan, inertia-reel belts. 1960s radio converted to FM; CD changer added. Well presented with perfect panels, unmarked paint, only lightly polish-scratched chrome. Moderately worn interior. Cond: 2+. Sold at $46,851. An enthusiastic underbidder was responsible for the new owner having to pay $2,200 over estimate. The spec and condition probably warranted it, though."

Lot No: 687
1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2-Litre Coupé
Registration no. GRF 39E
Chassis no. to be advised
Engine no. to be advised
The vendor purchased this E-Type 4.2-Litre Coupé in Ohio, USA in 1989. The car had been built in late 1966 and in January 1967 was shipped to New York where it was first sold. At the time the present owner discovered it in an Ohio barn, the car was in “sound but tatty” condition, but most importantly retained matching chassis, engine and gearbox numbers as confirmed by Jaguar factory records. The vendor shipped the car back to the UK, commissioning a cosmetic restoration and conversion to right-hand drive. Early in 1992 a full ‘ground-up’ restoration was commenced at Marcus Barclay Jaguar, a process that took close on two years to complete. The vendor advises us that the car has probably covered a mere 1,000-or-so miles since completion.
During the course of the rebuild, superior E-Type Series 2 brakes were fitted and a UK-specification higher final drive ratio opted for, replacing the lower overall gearing standardised on US models. Other upgrades incorporated include a Kenlowe electric fan, inertia-reel seatbelts and new wire wheels. In the mid-1990s the car was Waxolyed by Chris Parkinson and later in that same decade was fitted with a CD player, discreetly concealed behind the original 1960s radio. The remote sensor is hidden behind the ashtray housing and the stacker is behind the passenger seat, thus making it possible to play CDs while retaining the original radio and speakers. The radio has been upgraded with an FM chip, again without altering its external appearance. Finished in red with black interior, the car is presented in generally very good condition and offered with sundry invoices, current MoT/road fund licence and Swansea V5 registration document.
