This is the first Right Hand Fixed Head Coupe.
Was owned by Phillip Porter, but sold in 1998 to Classic Motor Cars for 1 pound ! (it was part of a deal between Porter and CMC, in return CMC restored 885002/9600 HP "the first E-type" which was als owned by Porter for him) After purchase of 860001 CMC did a total restoration on the car

Car was restored by CMC:
The very first right hand drive production Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupe. Supplied by Jaguar Cars in August 1961, 1 VHP was Henly's London E-Type demonstrator. In 2001, this very important E-Type underwent a total CMC Jaguar restoration, including rebuilding the XK engine, restoring the bodywork, retrimming and painting in its original Opalescent Dark Blue.
On 1 VHP, we carried out a similar conservation restoration as we had with 9600HP, although we had to replace more of the bodywork as the car had had previous repairs. A full mechanical restoration followed the body renovation together with a complete retrim.
This was another conservation restoration of a very historic Jaguar.

At the time you could get a reasonable e-type for £500It was my every day driver. My wife and I had holidays in it and our Honeymoon in 1974. It was fitted with full harness seat belts when I got it.
