Car to be at auction 3/21
1961 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 (FHC) Flat Floor - Chassis #60
A unique opportunity to take ownership of chassis #60 on the 60th anniversary of the E-Type.
LIVE AUCTION: Saturday 27th March | 11.00am GMT
Beautiful home market, right-hand drive, ‘flat floor’ fixed-head coupe
Finished in original colours, Opalescent Gunmetal with a red leather interior
Chassis number 60 of 175 right-hand drive ‘flat floor’ Coupés emerging from 43 years ownership
Enjoyed for many years before a complete ground-up restoration was commenced in 2000
Accompanied by a history file with photographs of the restoration works, invoices, old MOTs and the current V5
Offered with some spares including the original radio (to be installed), fitted car cover and a collection of E-Type literature.
Emerging from 43 years of private ownership, this beautiful, early home market 3.8 Fixed Head Coupe is finished in the classic colour combination of Opalescent Gunmetal Grey with a red leather interior. Manufactured in 1961 and first registered on 1st January 1962, Chassis 860060 is an early ‘flat floor’ example, one of the first 175 Coupes built before the recessed footwells were adopted and one of just 1,559 right-hand drive, 3.8 Coupes constructed in total, so rather a rare car in its own right.
Offered as part of a deceased estate, further details of this interesting E-Type will be updated over time. For now, it is believed that this example is finished in original colours, retains matching numbers and details will be confirmed with factory records in due course.
Accompanying the car is a history file including some old MOTs, invoices for restoration works, photographs taken during the restoration, copies of old logbooks and a current registration V5c. Also forming part of the sale is a collection of books, mostly restorers guides, reference books and parts manuals. What appears to be the original stereo and some other assorted spares are also included along with a high-quality fitted car cover.
For now, early Roadsters command a higher value than their solid top siblings although the early Coupe’s purity of line renders it as undoubtedly the more beautiful. Perhaps this gap will narrow over time with early cars certainly the most desirable and rightfully forming part of any notable classic car collection. This is a unique opportunity to take ownership of chassis #60, on the 60th Anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type.
