Chassis 850324, built for the UK market, this matching numbers Open Two Seater (OTS) roadster was delivered to Byatts of Fenton, Jaguar main dealers in Stoke on Trent in its current livery of OLd English White and Red interior. The first owner, Sam Rafferty, was a wartime hero serving in the Parachute Regiment and in 1949 established what is today known as Rafferty Lightening Protection Limited. He was known for his love of cars and with this E Type courted his future wife. These cars were like gold dust and unless you were famous or a racing driver, you were unlikely to be able to find one, so Sam Rafferty must have been well connected! With the arrival of his first child, the car was sold to its second owner, James Trotter, who lived in Surrey. He kept the car until 26th July 1973. The second owner, Graham Munt, was local also in Purely and kept the car for only 5 months selling in November 1973. The next owner of 570 UVT, Brian Palmer, lived in Norfolk and after a year in 1975 sold it to his neighbour, John Whitting, who kept the car until he passed away in 2010 and left the car to the current owner.
MOT certificates on file from 1976 to date show the mileage on 570 UVT going from 12, 026 to just over 30, 000 miles. The beneficiary asked a local specialist to undertake a full restoration which started in 2017. The finished car is immaculate in every and correct in all detail. The Car underwent a full 'nut and bolt' restoration, including full mechanical rebuild. The car comes with its original chassis plate and heritage certificate showing it to be full matching numbers in this stunning and rare combination.
A great original UK Car and the subject of a recent sympathetic restoration.
