Lot 71 at South West Vehicle Auctions of Poole sale of Classic Cars on 26th June 2020. Sold for £40,500. Amended catalogue description below.
This E Type is a British car, right hand drive with manual gearbox, triple carburettors and limited slip differential. It is a Series 1.5 of which only about 1,200 were made. The vendor acquired the car in 1995 and during his ownership he had the bodyshell renovated with some panels replaced by an ex Jaguar panel beater. The metal work on the body is very good and the rear wheel arches are excellent and rust free, the vendor had them filled so no water or mud could sit in the rust traps and cause problems. When completed the bodyshell had a bare metal respray in Carmen Red and it was waxoyled to keep moisture out.
The car was then rebuilt using many new parts, a new clutch and electronic ignition were fitted. The interior was partly retrimmed and new carpets and headlining fitted. When finished the car was used periodically on dry days for trips and to display at car shows, a house sale then forced the car into storage. Before going back on the road it will require recommissioning. The vendor kept the car for over 26 years and is selling so it can be used and appreciated. The history file includes invoices from 1987 to 2001 and a number of MoTs from 1975 to 2002.

Car to be at auction 5/23
Ascot Racecourse May 27th 2023
1968 Jaguar E-Type Series I 2+2 Coupé
Registration HDS 97G Chassis Number 1E51368 Engine Number 7E.555949 Odometer reading 66,000 miles Estimate £47,000 - £57,000
Original UK supplied right hand drive example
Recent recommissioning at a cost of over £10,000
Older restoration in very presentable condition
This lovely, right hand drive 1968 Jaguar E-Type Series I 2+2 Coupé was supplied new in the UK by Henlys, Bournemouth. This E-Type comes with a full ownership history from new with many invoices dating back to 1982. Treated to a comprehensive restoration between 1995 and 1999, this E-Type was dry stored in 2002 and used sparingly until 2020 where the current vendor commissioned a comprehensive recommissioning costing over £10,000, the work of which was completed by specialists Nick Kerner 4 Wheel Drive.
Offered with a sizeable history file which includes many old MoT test certificates dating from 1975, various sundry invoices, many restoration invoices, and the most recent £10,000 recommissioning invoice, its current V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until March 2024. Beautifully finished and highly usable, this Series I E-Type is showing circa 66,000 miles on the odometer, which when looking at the relevant history appears to be genuine. The Series 1 2+2 is one of the most desirable models owing to its practicality and desirability all in one complete package.
