Car was at Bonhams auction 7/09
www.bonhams.com/cgi-bin/public.sh/pubweb/publicSite.r

Auction description:
Lot No: 216•
1964 Jaguar XK-E Custom Roadster
Chassis no. 860402

Over the years it is not uncommon to see revivals of great marques, great models or indeed continuations on the theme of a great car. More often than not the company that produces them elects to take the styling of the original and uprate or modernize it to add a new dimension to an old concept, it is perhaps most common with Austin-Healeys but there have certainly been a fair share of E Types and the ‘Bouillot Helsel E Type’ is one such example. Taking the then cheapest possible derivative of the model as a basis, a right hand drive Series 1 Coupe – as designated by its VIN number, the makers converted the car to roadster and left hand drive before giving it a comprehensive restoration and general technical upgrade.

The car was originally presented at the London Motor Fair (Show) at Earls Court in 1983. For a sum of £50,000, a price in those days roughly equivalent to three or more original cars, the Bouillot Helsel E Type boasted 5 speed Jaguar synchromesh gearbox, beefed up suspension and an aesthetic makeover which was not only very striking, but far more luxurious than the original. This included matching luggage, a plush leather interior with burled walnut dashboard fascia and its own style of knock-off hubs. Boldly, the company used their own cream and burgundy throughout and a ‘BH’ insignia can be found across the headlining and on the luggage, while a chrome ‘Boillot Helsel’ signature can be found on the lower hood edge.

It is not known how successful the venture was and consultation with knowledgeable Jaguar historians such as Philip Porter in the UK suggests that this may well be the sole example although the ‘model’ is referred to in Chris Harvey’s ‘E Type. End of an Era’ and features on page 245 of this book.

Today the car records just a couple of thousand miles on its odometer. The engine compartment is clean and detailed in a matching color scheme. The vendor reports the car runs well, and is a pleasure to drive. It is a one-of-a-kind automobile and very striking in appearance, a car that everyone will notice. It represents a singular opportunity in this sale.

Estimate: $75,000 - 100,000

Car to be at auction 8/14
www.bonhams.com/auctions/21917/lot/261/

Auction description:
Lot 261
1964 JAGUAR E-TYPE "BOUILLOT HELSEL" ROADSTER
Chassis no. 860402
Engine no. R5016-9

Without reserve
US$ 80,000 - 110,000
£47,000 - 64,000

While more often seen today, it was uncommon practice 30 years ago to take a vintage car and make updates and upgrades to improve upon the maker's original product with the intent of creating a commercial venture. The "Bouillot Helsel E-Type" offered here pioneered the way for the likes of Singer and Eagle to come along decades later and ply their polished and pricey wares.

Starting with a right-hand drive Series 1 Coupe, the roof was removed, the steering wheel switched sides, and numerous mechanical upgrades were installed. The car was originally presented at the London Motor Fair (Show) at Earls Court in 1983. For the sum of £50,000, a price in those days roughly equivalent to three or more original cars, the Bouillot Helsel E-Type boasted a 5-speed Jaguar synchromesh gearbox, beefed up suspension and an aesthetic makeover which was not only very striking, but far more luxurious than the original. This included matching luggage, a plush leather interior with burled walnut dashboard fascia and its own style of knock-off hubs. Boldly, the company used their own cream and burgundy throughout and a 'BH' insignia can be found across the headlining and on the luggage, while a chrome 'Bouillot Helsel' signature can be found on the lower hood edge.

It is not known how successful the venture was and consultation with knowledgeable Jaguar historians such as Philip Porter in the UK suggests that this may well be the sole example, although the 'model' is referred to in Chris Harvey's E Type: End of an Era and features on page 245 of this book.

Today the Bouillot Helsel E-Type represents a bold attempt at improving upon the original E-Type concept. The engine compartment is clean and detailed in a matching color scheme. It is a one-of-a-kind automobile and very striking in appearance, a car that everyone will notice. It represents a singular opportunity in this sale.

Ebay item 9/27/19

www.ebay.com/itm/1964-Jaguar-XKE/264478835421

Car has a buy it now price of $212,000 for 29 days, seller thefineauto942, car now said to be in Chula Vista, California, 1 mile reported.

Seller's description:

This is a interesting car with a nice and unique history, it was originally a coupe that was bought by "Bouillot-Helsel" and upgraded and made convertible kind of an early Eagle or Porsche Singer attempt.

They started with a coupe, because they had a lighter conversion than the original open car, reinforcing the chasis structure with lighter more modern materials. They also upgraded (and chrome) the suspension, gave it two tone paint, an upgraded interior fitted luggage, a cool wood dash, upgraded disk brakes and installed a 5 speed Jaguar synchronized suspension, effectively modernizing(1983) the car and making it a much better ride.

Since we got it, we serviced it fixed everything, changed radiator, made the body fits better and painted burgundy original color. Upgraded to wider wire wheels and tires and completely redid the red interior to cuio, removed the top(available) complemented by a custom tuneau cover. 

You should see to appreciate how beautiful this vehicle is. We have a complete photo album of restoration process.

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?
