URL for above auction: auctions.holtsauctioneers.com/asp/fullcatalogue.asp Auction description: The example offered here is very much a "driver's car "with many years of fast and reliable summer motoring in its current ownership to back up this claim [it has been garaged in the winter to avoid salt corrosion]. The car has been primarily maintained by Richard Watson of Forres , Moray shire , formerly a racing mechanic with the BRM racing team , and for several years Innes Ireland's mechanic . Dick specialises in Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls Royce and for several years looked after an original D Type racing Jaguar that some years ago was sold for £ 1,750,000. Over the last ten years as well as usual annual maintenance he has installed a custom made stainless steel free flow exhaust system, converted the car to electronic ignition , installed a digital petrol pump and overhauled and tuned the carburettors . The car has the correct Motorola radio for the period though the radio does not receive a signal as there is no aerial. This, and the lack of wing mirrors, is because it was felt that either accessory would spoil the perfect external lines of the car. In any case the driver of a car such as this should be listening to the gorgeous rasp of the exhaust note rather than a radio! The sound of the exhaust and the engine is enhanced by the size of the exhaust and the fact that the air cleaners have been removed and replaced by trumpets on the three SU carburettors. This improves airflow to the carbs, improves the sound and has no deleterious effect on the carburettors [unless the car was to be used in a dry and sandy country such as North Africa, but not in Britain]. Fifteen years ago the car's interior was changed from black to its current grey leather seats and grey carpets. It retains its original aluminium dash board and transmission tunnel and the toggle switches that are correct for the early cars. It also retains a plastic badge on the windscreen which externally shows the Jaguar head emblem and internally "Running In" instructions for the first owner In spring 2010 the car was driven to London from Inverness for some summer motoring in France, and following that Hofmanns of Henley were asked to overhaul both brakes and suspension. The car was then driven back to Inverness to be garaged for the winter. In order to avoid traffic and have a fast run the journey was undertaken overnight and this allowed the 560 miles to e covered in seven hours, an average of 80mph with stops only for petrol and coffee. Estimate £25,000-35,000

Car returns to auction 6/10/13
www.bonhams.com/auctions/20928/lot/130/

Auction description:
15 Jun 2013 15:00 BST Oxford
Collectors' Motor Cars
Lot 130
1962 Jaguar E-Type 'Series 1' 3.8-Litre Coupé
Registration no. LFF 902
Chassis no. 860874
Engine no. R7483-9
Estimate:
£40,000 - 50,000
€47,000 - 59,000
US$ 62,000 - 78,000

This early 'Series 1' coupé comes with Jaguar Heritage certificate stating that it was manufactured in right-hand drive form and first registered 'AMY 941A' in Middlesex. Distributed by Henlys and retailed via Broadfield Garages of Cockfosters, the car was first owned by one E W Hunter of London N21. The original colour scheme is recorded as Opalescent Dark Green with Suede Green interior trim. Since its acquisition by the current vendor in 2000 the E-Type has been principally maintained by Richard Watson of Forres, Morayshire, a specialist in Jaguar, Bentley and Rolls-Royce motor cars. In addition to routine maintenance, the car has been fitted with electronic ignition, a digital fuel pump and a custom-made stainless steel exhaust system, while the carburettors have been overhauled, fitted with intake trumpets and tuned. The correct Motorola radio is present, though it should be noted that both the aerial and wing mirrors have been removed to un-clutter the car's lines. Other noteworthy features include the original aluminium dashboard and transmission tunnel, and the toggle switches typical of early cars, while on the windscreen is a plastic Jaguar badge with running in instructions on the reverse. Some 15 years ago, while the Jaguar was in previous ownership, the interior was re-trimmed in the current grey leather with matching carpets.

Driven from Inverness to London in the spring of 2010, and then to France for a summer's motoring, the E-Type was sent to Hofmanns of Henley on its return for the brakes and suspension to be overhauled. More recently the car has benefited from bodywork refurbishment by James Grant of Grantown-on-Spey. Bills for the aforementioned works are on file together with others dating back to 1991, the total spent over that last 22 years being well in excess of £21,000. Taxed and MoT'd to July 2012 and stored since then, this well maintained E-Type coupé is described as in generally very good condition and offered with Swansea V5 document.
