The early history of the car is not known – although it is an original UK car and one owner liked it enough to keep it for 30 years before it was bought by XK Engineering who owned it for the two years before our vendor bought it.
The car is still running its original Opus electronic ignition system (with the correct coil – that’s the secret) and has a spare module, which should see the car through the next 47 years. Recent work on HJD 438K includes new brake master cylinder, servo, and calipers. It has also received a new fuel pump and a carburettor overhaul kit. The car has GAZ adjustable shock absorbers fitted all round.
The recorded mileage is shown as 84,632 miles and this is believed to be correct. MOT records run back to 1979 when the car was recorded as having covered 49,000miles and it has a Heritage Certificate and some invoices.
This is a very good looking E-Type, with good panel fit (an optional extra on some cars) and doors that close as they should. The aftermarket ‘peep mirrors’ keep the car’s line clean and the whole thing has a taught and purposeful stance. Ready for some long distance European touring? Why not.
Let’s show the Italians what a proper gentleman’s V12 looks like.
