Prior to 2002 the car was never registered
with the DVLA hence very little is known
about the history

This car was never registered with the
DVLA up until 2002 the date I purchased it.
The invalid reg No was EMM 8. It is now
registered MAS 648.

Just out of interest Lofty where did you purchase.EMM 8 from
in 2002?

2016-09-28 13:57:20 | Terry Bailey writes:

This chassis no. 860028 was originally owned by Eric Merton Miller hence
the registration EMM8. Incidentally he owned a Ferarri Superfast at the time
which also bore the same registration, all very dubious.
He was the treasurer of the Labour Party under Hariold Wilson and a highly
successful property dealer. He subsequently took his own life after some
financial irregularities.

In addition to the above, if anybody out there can throw any light on to
any history on this car from Eric Merton Miller onwards up to 2002
I would be exceedingly grateful.

The 28th of only 175 right-hand drive 'flat floor' coupés made, this rare early E-Type left the factory in November 1961 finished in Gunmetal metallic with red trim, and was first owned by a Mr E M Miller of London SW7. Its late owner purchased the car from The E-Type Centre, Chilcote, Staffordshire in November 2002 (purchase receipt on file). Previously registered 'EMM 8', the car had been fully restored by The E-Type Centre immediately prior to delivery, as evidenced by their accompanying photographic record (perusal recommended). A bare-metal re-spray was carried out as part of the restoration and the following upgrades fitted: Kenlowe cooling fan, electronic ignition, Coopercraft 4-pot brake callipers with Kevlar pads, stainless steel exhaust system, Thatcham Category 1 alarm, Polybushes front and rear, halogen headlamps, door mirrors, chromed wire wheels, alternator conversion, and a Series 2 brake servo conversion (detailed invoice on file). It should be noted that this car now has foot wells (it is assumed that the original flat floors were replaced during the restoration).


Following the completion of the restoration, the E-Type was used sparingly and for most of the last 16 years has been kept inside a Carcoon when not in use. It should also be noted that 'MAS 648' has not seen much use of late and as such will require some sympathetic restoration and cosmetic re-commissioning before returning to the road. Accompanying documentation consists of invoices and correspondence relating to its previous ownership; numerous bills for parts and servicing; JDHT Certificate; three MoTs (most recent expired 2005); an old-style V5C Registration Certificate; and the aforementioned restoration records.

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?
