Car to be at auction 11/18
www.silverstoneauctions.com/1963-jaguar-e-type-38-series-1-roadster

Auction description:
NEC Classic Motor Show Sale 2018
1963 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster
Lot No.: 305
Registration: 388 XKE
Chassis Number: 850652
Engine Number: RA105Y9
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 3.8
Year of Manufacture: 1963
Estimate (£): 70,000 - 80,000

UK-supplied, right-hand drive car in Opalescent Silver Blue with a dark blue interior
Ordered from Ritches Ltd of Glasgow on 13/02/1963. Original order form with the car
Returned to the UK in 1983. Current owner for 18 years
With its Jaguar Book Pack, Sales and Service Handbook, Buff Log Book, and the original Tool Kit
Supplied with a history file containing 27 previous MoTs and some invoices dating back to 1977
Restored roughly 12 years ago, now displaying some blistering on the paintwork
Attractively guided to allow for cosmetic improvements. '388 XKE' will remain with the car

388 XKE is finished in Opalescent Silver Blue metallic with a Dark Blue leather interior and matching Dark Blue convertible hood and was first registered in February 1963 (as FSW 414) to a Mrs.Margaret Martin of Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway. According to the original Log Book, it had a further two owners to leaving the country for foreign parts just after 1974.

We are led to believe the car returned to the UK during December 1983 and has since been enjoyed by five owners with the current custodian having that pleasure for the past 18 years. The car comes with its original Jaguar Handbook Folder containing the Operators, Maintenance and Service Handbooks and a Jaguar Sales and Service Handbook along with the original order form from Ritches Ltd of Glasgow ( 13/02/1963 ) Also in the pack is the original Buff Logbook detailing the first owners prior to going abroad.

This Jaguar comes with a history file dating back to the 70s with a total of 27 older MoT Certificates and quite a few bills for completed works, both mechanical and bodywork over the years. The car had a bare metal respray approximately 12 years ago, along with a new hood, and an interior refurb at the same time although, unfortunately, there is no evidence in writing of these works. However, today 388 XKE clearly needs some attention to the body and paint as there is evidence of blistering, however, it still looks pretty smart and this is clearly an ongoing usable project. With this in mind, the Jaguar has been attractively guided, making this a great opportunity, for a reasonable outlay, to get behind the wheel of one of these desirable Series 1 Roadsters.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
