Info gathered with permission from:
www.hendi.nl/xke/main.htm

850018 was one of the seven ZP537/24 cars. It was originally delivered to the Equipe Endeavour team. Reports indicated the car had been restored in the late eighties or early nineties.

2007-02-06 13:26:53 | pauls writes:

Car was mentioned in Nov '07 Jaguar Journal. Having factory records stating it was built for Tommy Sopwith, color was Indigo Blue. Registration EE 400, engine R1029.

Above should have read Nov '06 issue of Jaguar Journal.

This car featured in an article in Thoroughbred and Classic Car magazine, England, in August 1992.
It was originally prepared for racing by Equipe Endeavour and was road registered EE 400 plate.

This car, chassis number 18, was purchased direct from Lofty England by Equipe Endeavour - run by Mr Tommy Sopwith – and originally carried his cherished registration mark EE 400. At the same time, Mr Sopwith also acquired the sister car, which was registered ECD 400 (that car became the first ever E-Type to win a race, driven by Graham Hill in May 1961 at Oulton Park). This car was the “spare” car to that race effort and used as personal road transport for the team’s main driver – Mike Parkes. There is a letter on file with the history of this car confirming all these details from Mr Sopwith. What is truly remarkable is that this car escaped the fate and possible ruin of so many very early E-Types and that she remains today totally original to that specification of May 1961. This is a truly significant E-Type. It has featured in articles in several Jaguar enthusiast magazines accrued over the years and is a car that has not been brought to the market during the last decade.

I purchased this car from Nick Whale.It was poorly restored some time ago using I suspect Robey non -original panels.Has therefore lost some of its originality and rivets replaced by poor welding.I intend to strip down to bare shell and start again so need some pictures showing very early detailing and where to re-introduce rivets etc.new floors,cills etc and tunnell not welded in properly.Still appears to have original bonnett(hood).No hardtop fitting brackets,original bootlid and hinges,windscreen,dash,doors(but window vertical glass supports fitted),original fan,C/r gearbox etc etc.Any help with detailing would be appreciated and emil contact attached.CAR WILL BE USED FOR COMPETITION IN UK AND EUROPE AND WILL RUN IN ORIGINAL 1961 TRIM.IT WILL NOT BE TURNED INTO A LIGHTWEIGHT LOOK A LIKE.

A truly fantastic restoration by highly respected 'E' type UK using restored period second hand parts rather than reproduction new ones.The car has been invited to race at the Goodwood Revival in 2011 alongside at least 5 genuine lightweight's and 2 other ZP cars.It will race with a soft top rather than a hardtop just as it appeared in April 1961when the hardtop had not been conceived. Can't wait to see it there.

Seen at Goodwood Revival 17th September 2011.Restored to its ORIGINAL specification and re-united with its original registration UPM400.Thankfully not a Lightweight copy.It raced in the Fordwater Trophy and went on to win the 'Cars for the Connoisseur' award for the best period cometition car. A fantastic presentation by the organisers as it was presented along side its sister car ECD400 in the 'E' Type display.The first time these two 'Equipe Endeavour Team' cars have appeared together since 1961.Driven to and from the meeting as cars were in the early 1960's.

The CR gearbox fitted to this car for the 62 season is owned by Tim Snowden in Harrogate Yorkshire, I have seen it at Tims garage. Tim’s Bros. Mark operates www.NorthernJaguar.com the Jaguar E-type and XK parts and car sales shop. Originally fitted to 850005 - ECD400 this CR gearbox went into 850018 - EE400 in 62 When Sopwith was racing this for the 62 season. It later came out of 850018 and is now in Tim’s garage. It's all documented in UPM400’s history file. Would be nice to re-unite them.

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?
