Lot 438 at the Dorotheum Auction Sale of Classic Cars at Classic Expo in Salzburg on 21 October 2017. Sold for 64,400 euros. Abbreviated auctioneer's description below.
Austrian, delivery, well documented, matching numbers! This car's most remarkable feature is the continuous documentation of its history: in 1967, the Jaguar was delivered to Austria as a new car. Its single vehicle type approval notes a few changes in ownership over the following years, until the E Type was acquired by a passionate E Type enthusiast in late 1983. He lovingly researched, restored and drove the E Type. He contacted the previous owners and traced its history back to the production line. He also documented every journey made, including the mileage, along with any service work, and wrote some amusing Club magazine articles about his experiences and extensive travels with the E Type.
Its restoration from 1978 to 1990 is meticulously recorded and illustrated. Its bodywork proved to be extremely healthy, thanks to almost exclusive summer use. Its original engine was rebuilt by an expert; its leather interior was retained and still lends the E Type a unique charm. The owner gained a wealth of experience from this reconstruction. The investment couldn't be financially justified, but this perfectionist had his priorities. In 2011, for health reasons, a worthy new owner was sought, the current consignor.
VIN:1E78392; mileage: 61,682 kms; displacement: 4235cms3/R6; gearbox: 4 speed; colour: red exterior, black leather interior; power:233hp; papers: Austrian single type approval.
Note: The auctioneers description gives a build date of May or June 1967 with delivery later that year. The chassis number indicates the build date is April 1968.
