Sports Car Monthly magazine (3/05) comment from Christie's auction 6/7/2004: "S/N 850218. Eng.# R2247/9. Carmen Red/beige. RHD. Odo: 2,863 miles. Miles since resto. XK Engineering rebuilt in 1991. Still fresh looking. Paint polish-sratched. Chrome has minor marks. Leather and interior spotless. Cond. 1-. Sold at $69,184. Considering the high quality of work carried out, this genuine flat floor E-type, with all the numbers matching, may have been slightly underpriced."

Additional auction info:
Registration No. 648 CYV Chassis No. 850218 Engine No. R2247/9 Carmen red with beige leather interior and black soft top

The car we proudly offer is an extremely early production 'flat floor' roadster that was built in October 1961. The JDHT production record trace certificate also informs us that the car was originally supplied with Carmen red coachwork a matching red interior and a black soft top. Delivered by Henlys of London on 30th October 1961, the fortunate first owner was a G. C. Cussens of Enfield, Middlesex.
In Jaguar folklore, the name of XK Engineering is synonymous with the finest restorations of the marque. The car offered for sale, was the subject of a ground up re-build at the hands of this renowned company between 1989 and early 1991, having been supplied in basket case condition by their client.
With the car is a comprehensive file detailing the work and expense necessitated to revive the car to its former glory. Every invoice throughout the restoration period comes with the car and so fastidious was the extent to which the restoration was executed that even at a time when labour charges were a mere £20.00 an hour, the total bill still amounted to £25,000. A well presented photographic record of the restoration is also in the history file depicting the story of how a sorry amalgamation of parts was turned back into the stunning motor car that Browns Lane staff themselves would have been proud of.
When purchased by the current owner in 1995 from XK Engineering, it had travelled just 2,100 miles since the restoration and thus had only just been run in. Over the last nine years the car has been much admired and well maintained, but rarely used and the odometer now reads a mere 2,862 miles. When driven by a Christie's specialist the car performed without fault and of particular note was how well the engine pulled, the Moss 'box was true to reputation and the road holding was a delight. With only sympathetic use since its fabulous restoration to original specification, this rare, highly desirable, matching numbers 'flat floor' E-Type has remained in exquisite order, and still is today, beautiful in every regard. Currently MoT'd and road taxed, it is ready to be used or exhibited.

This car featured in a 1967 episode of The Avengers (in Color). It was the 'villain' car and is featured extensively throughout the episode which involves Steed and Mrs Peel in the Bentley participating in a rally/race. In the film it is red with a black interior and has lost the alloy dash in favour of a black one. Great footage of 648 CYV being thrown around the English countryside and, ultimately, crashed! Whoever owns the car now it is worth searching out a copy on DVD.

Forgot to add the episode concerned is "Dead Man's Treasure" and is included in the DVD set "The Avengers : The Definitive Dossier 1967 (Box Set 4)" available from Amazon.

1961 E Type Series 1 Flat Floor Roadster.

Engine Number R 2247-9

Registration number 648CYV

A magnificently restored car. This car was disassembled by marque specialists XK Engineering & totally rebuilt from the ground up without regard to expense. A full set of pictures documenting the restoration comes with the car along with an eye watering set of bills. The car also comes with its Jaguar heritage certificate attesting to its authenticity.

The paint is flawless Carmen red complimented by wonderful bright work.

The interior is biscuit leather. The hood black mohair.

Not much more is needed in the description as the car speaks for itself.

A rare early flat floor example with original Moss box & absolutely correct in every detail. One for the collectors I would suggest?

This car appeared in "The Avengers", (a pretty poor UK TV show in the sixties)

I was the owner of this car from 1966 to 1968. I rented it to elstree studios for the filming of the avengers. It was also used for a advertisement for shell petrol. I swapped it for a brand new mg midget from stanbourgh motors garsten. Happy to see its still going.

Hello very slim chance but worth a try. Wondering if the Tony member is still active above, if so would love to chat. I believe it may have been my late father that you swapped the jag with the mg midget for.

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?
