Lot 122 at Brightwells of Leominster Sale of Classic and Vintage Cars on 6th March 2019. Not sold. Abbreviated catalogue description below.
www.brightwells.com/classic-motoring/general-information/classic-vintage-past-re ...

This particular flat floor is chassis 875842 which makes it the 842nd roadster made in LHD. Like all early cars it is fitted with the striking 3.8 litre XK straight six which provides a sportier feel than the later 4.2 litre engine, developing 265bhp and 260lb/ft of torque in standard tune. It also has a wonderful early interior with bucket seats and aluminium cockpit trim which wouldn't look out of place in a WW2 fighter. Another nice feature are the welded in bonnet louvres which were replaced with pressed steel in late 1961.

As the Heritage Certificate confirms it was completed in 19th October 1961 and originally finished in Bronze with red interior and black hood. It was shipped to Puerto Rico and sold to its first owner by the Rio Pedras Motor Corporation. Sadly, nothing is known of its subsequent history and the story only picks up recently when it was discovered by our vendor in Germany, being brought back here and getting UK registered 615XVD in November 2018.

Appearing to be remarkably sound condition throughout it has lost its original engine but the unit fitted is a correct 3.8 E Type engine dating from June 1963. Starting promptly and running well it is offered here as a straight forward restoration project.

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster 'Flat Floor'

Registration 615 XVD

Chassis Number 875842

Engine Number RA2486-9

Estimate No Reserve

The comparative rarity of these early ‘flat floor’ cars, 2,615 made in total, makes them especially appealing to collectors today. This particular example, chassis number 875842, which makes it the 842nd roadster made with a lefthand drive configuration. Back in 1962, the boys at Browns Lane couldn’t press louvres into the bonnet as a whole unit so, it is thought, holes were cut into the bonnet and the louvres were spot welded in from the changing room lockers. Later pressed louvres were made specifically and welded in before louvres were able to be pressed in the entire panel. These are clear indicators of an early car.

Originally painted, as per the JDHT Certificate, in opalescent bronze with a red interior and black hood. Later, the following month, it was shipped to the US territory of Puerto Rico where it was sold to its first owner via the Rio Pedras Motor Corporation. Sadly, nothing is known of its subsequent history. The story of this car picks up only very recently when it was discovered by a gentleman in Germany, returned to the UK and registered as 615 XVD in November 2018. It was then sold to its current owner and became part of his extensive, and very exclusive, private collection. Appearing to be in remarkably sound condition throughout, it has lost its original engine at some point (R2263-9) but the unit currently fitted (RA2486-9) is a correct 3.8 litre, E-Type engine dating from June 1963 and, importantly, with the correct compression ratio for this build date.

This represents a rare opportunity not only to acquire a ‘Flat Floor’ roadster, a rolling and running restoration, but also offered, miraculously, without reserve. If it were me, I would use it just as it is!

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?
