THE INTERIOR 

Seats have had new foams fitted 

Well presented

Modern but period-looking USB head-unit

Original features

Inside the E-type is like stepping straight back to the 70s. The Biscuit leather interior is in lovely condition. The seats have had new foam fitted, but 90% of the leather is said to be original. There is some patina to the door armrests, but the door cards are in good order. 

Don Law Jaguar has installed the dashboard to convert it to right-hand drive. This is in good condition, with no splits or cracks to be seen. The instruments working correctly apart from the clock and cigar lighter, and the odometer reads 97,937 miles. There is a wood rim Moto-Lita steering wheel fitted, which is in good condition. The switchgear shows very little wear, and everything reportedly works as it should. An aftermarket but period-looking head unit has been fitted with USB. The Vendor informs us that the clock and the cigar lighter no longer work.

The carpets have been replaced; therefore, with not many miles covered, these are in excellent condition. Looking up at the headlining, this is free from any sagging and appears in good condition. Inside the boot, the floor matches the Biscuit leather seats; under this is an excellent spare wheel, wheel knock off and hammer.  

THE EXTERIOR

Fantastic Signal Red paintwork 

Solid underside 

Well presented

Original chrome work                             

Originally the E-type was finished in the colour of Sable; as you can see, it has undergone a full-colour change to Signal Red, which is in stunning condition. There are one or two tiny chips which have been touched in as it was painted several years ago. But with that said, it is just an odd few which are difficult to spot. 

Looking around the Jaguar, there are no dings or dents to point out on the body, and the doors align with perfection, opening and closing with a light touch. The chrome work is excellent, with no signs of tarnishing to the headlight surrounds or bumpers. The rear bumper has a very small ding, but this is really light. 

Around to the sides, the chrome trim and window surrounds are in excellent order with a bright, tarnish-free finish, and the windows look to be free from any scratches. Looking over the shapely rear quarters to the back end, which looks fantastic. The window and seal are excellent, as are the Jaguar E Type V12 badges and chrome vent. As mentioned earlier, the lights are UK-specification lenses, free from any splits. Finishing off the rear are probably the most famous tailpipes of all time which are in excellent condition. 

The chrome wire wheels are in good order. Some of the spokes have a small amount of tarnishing, but generally, they present extremely well and have a bright finish. The tyres are all matching Avon Turbospeed CR28 with a good amount of tread remaining. 

THE MECHANICS

5.3 Litre V12

Automatic gearbox

Well maintained 

Last service was carried out in August 2021 

At the heart of this Jaguar E-type is the fantastic 5.3 Litre V12. This engine seems to have been well maintained when looking through the history file and hearing it run; it sounds as smooth as silk, just as a V12 should. 

The V12 fires up without hesitation thanks to the upgraded Lumenition electronic ignition system, which has been fitted to provide a reliable and excellent spark to each of the 12 cylinders. No untoward noises are coming from the engine bay, the oil filter does appear to be slightly damp but everything else appears in good order. 

The vendor reports the car to pull strongly through the gearbox, which has a smooth, clunk-free change when working it through the gears. No knocks or bangs are reported to come from the suspension, and the vendor says the brakes bring the car to a halt in a straight line with no juddering through the pedal. The vendor also tells us that it has a small oil leak, that a local garage said was from an aftermarket oil filter seal and nothing to be concerned about.

The underside of the car is in excellent condition. Even though the car has been in the UK since 1989 it has clearly not been used in wet weather conditions an enormous amount. The vendor even admits that since owning the E-type, it has never seen a damp road.

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?
