Just Returned back to the UK and awaiting concours restoration. First owner Columbia Pictures LA but for who? Anyone with any history please post up. Superb unrestored condition

I am still trying to find out some of the history on this genuine California car. It is remarkable rot free condition but has been painted once silver over its original Cream. I know this E type was sold new to Columbia Pictures from the heritage certificate but beyond that nothing. I have looked at the list of films and tv programs made by Columbia during 1962/3 and 4 but still not come up with anything. If any one is more of a film buff than me please let me know what ideas you may have. Of course back then Studios used to employ on contract film stars, so the E type may have been bought for one of their stars. Any ideas please let me know here.

Description:

Lot 234 - 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster

Registration UK taxes paid Chassis Number 877488 Engine Number R 6035-9 Estimate £130,000 - £150,000

Manufactured on 8th June 1962 and then despatched to Jaguar Cars in New York, this E-Type was repatriated to the UK in 2015. Purchased by the current vendor in 2017 he embarked on a total nut and bolt restoration. The car is now finished in Opalescent Grey with contrasting burgundy interior. The paintwork finish is to a high standard as is the leather interior. Still in its left hand drive guise this Series I E-Type would make an ideal car to travel on the continent, offering style and performance. Supplied with a NOVA certificate and the original US title document, this very special Jaguar really does have to be seen to be appreciated.

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?
