This car is mentioned on page 146 in Chris Harvey's book E-type the end of an Era. The printing I have of that book is 1987, I assume the info was still accurate at that time. The comment reads:

Tony owns the earliest E-type in Tasmania, a 1961 fhc, chassis number 860134 which was first registered in England in 1962. The car was shipped to Tasmania in 1968 and despite having had eight owners, it is still in excellent condition, with very low mileage on the clock. Although the history of every one of the twenty eith Tasmanian E-types was not readily available, Tony discovered that about one third of the cars were bought new in Tasmania with the rest being shipped from Britain or Australia.

Built December 1961 and registered January 1962, this car has undergone an absolutely no money spared ground up concours restoration by Dean Causley from Classic Auto Metal in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Advertised for sale on carsales.com.au on 14 September 2020, asking AUD$499,995. Car is located in New South Wales, Australia. A summary of the seller’s description follows:

Distributed through Henley's London, sold new by dealer Friday’s Ltd. In 1968 it went to Devonport, Tasmania, Australia. It remained in Tasmania for the next 45 years. 

In 2009, after storage under a house since 1982, the owner commissioned its restoration by award-winning specialist Dean Causley of Classic Auto Metal. A painstaking, four year, nut and bolt restoration took place which is documented by receipts and photographs. The car has travelled only 965 miles since restoration. 

A few tasteful upgrades were made during the restoration to improve driveability. These include: new steering rack, aluminium radiator (replicating original steel radiator), high torque starter motor, alternator (in original generator housing), genuine 4.2 Series 1 all-synchro gearbox (original Moss gearbox comes with car) and Dayton triple laced wire wheels. 

Accompanying the car is its fully documented history since new, Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate, service receipts, photographs and tools including jack and hammer.

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?
