Year 1962
Vehicle Registration 785 UYR
Chassis Number 878215
Engine Number R7975-9
Body Colour Red

MOT Expiry March 2017

- Reportedly acquired by the Jaguar collector vendor in 1994 as a recently imported LHD restoration project from the USA
- Rejuvenated and converted to RHD by the vendor and specialists with a photographic record between about 2012 and 2016
- UK registered but illness dictates a new owner will have a few jobs to finish such as tuning the carburettors and fitting sun visors

'785 UYR' was manufactured on September 24th 1962 and despatched a couple of weeks later to Jaguar's New York agent to deliver to its first owner, a Mr E. White. At the time it featured left-hand drive and was finished in Black with contrasting Red interior trim. The vendor is a Jaguar collector, who acquired the car in 1994 following its repatriation as a restoration project straight from the USA. Working hand in glove with appropriate specialists between 2012 and 2016, he converted the E-type to right-hand drive and largely completed the intended rejuvenation of the vehicle before ill health sadly forced him to cease work on the project.

To date the restoration has included the replacement of sills on both sides of the car, the installation of new floor sections, and the purchase of lots of new parts that were employed in the refurbishment of the engine, clutch, gearbox, differential, electrical system, hood / frame and interior trim etc. The tyres are also new all-round. Among the remaining tasks are tuning the engine, fitting the sun visors and boot carpet, and general road testing, so it should be possible for the next keeper to complete the work in pretty short shrift. The odometer presently displays an unwarranted 73,987 miles and the Jaguar now features Red bodywork teamed with Black interior trim - ie the reverse of how it started life. The vendor currently classes the interior trim, 3.8-litre engine and four-speed manual transmission as 'very good', and the bodywork and paintwork as 'good'. He is now offering the E-Type complete with: Jaguar Heritage certificate, an MOT valid until March 16th next year, a large collection of invoices from the likes of Martin Robey, Hutson Motor Company and the David Manners Group etc, plus a photographic record of all the work carried out to date.

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?
