    This car is discussed in the June '86 issue of Jaguar International magazine in an article written by Richard Iott. It was mentioned that Jaguar Cars provided information that this car was at the time owned by Phillip Porter.

    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:
    www.classic-motor-cars.co.uk/restorations/1vhp-first-production-e-type-fhc/

    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.

    The car is featured in the Dec. '15 issue of Octane magazine
    www.classic-motor-cars.co.uk/assets/E-type-150mph-Octane-150th-issue.pdf

    The car is taken to Germany for an attempt at 150mph, they achieved 146 and still accelerating when interrupted by traffic. Car is said to be bone stock however well restored.

    i owned this car in the 1970's it was then registered 480 HYT I was 20 years old when I bought it for £250. How times change. I sold to to Adrian Hamilton for £1750. 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.

    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?
