Under offer at Pendine Historic Cars of Bicester. Abbreviated seller's description below.
Competition prepared from new and registered by the factory with works registration. An original right hand drive example that hasn't been messed with, has an interesting tale to tell and is matching numbers. Ordered new by a wealthy New York lady for her boyfriend George W Burgess Jr. The story goes that E Types were in such high demand in the US, all the LHD'S were spoken for. But if you bought a UK RHD you could jump the queue. This is why its a Personal Export Delivery and has its original WK number.
It seems he wanted to compete with the E Type, and it arrived with outside laced competition wheels which are still with the car. The roll hoop looks period judging by the welds, along with the mirrors, bonnet straps, etc. It comes with the original competition parts manual. He entered but didn't compete in SCCA Virginia and then Burgess either tired of the car or the girlfriend and the E was sold to another New Yorker. About 12 years ago the US owner's mechanic purchased the car, so its had around 5 owners, including the current one.
Paperwork includes the original warranty card, bill of sale, etc - all rare stuff. Mileage of 40,000 is probably original, although we can't back it up. General originality and condition suggest its right and points to an untouched car. We really like this car. It probably needs a little service work but this is a cracking E Type.
