Would this be the Mike Mueller that I knew long ago in Vermont? The famous one that had parts crammed under his house? Back when he had an old drafty barn? Can you email me? Thanks, Dave

The unbelievable has happended. According to the JAguar E-Type magazine Feb. 2015 Mike Mueller has sold 3 of his 4 OSB FHC. An another source said, that he even sold no. 4 as well as he was simply offered too much money for the cars. The holy grail of early OSB FHCs has given them all away.....

The article also said that 2 of these cars will be restored and subsequently auctioned. Estimated price from the auctioneers: Between 1 - 1.7 mio US$ --> this is a hammer!

The estimated price range was meant per car - not both together!!!

885018 was bought from Mike Mueller a few years ago. We have been collecting missing parts and it is now beginning the restoration process, should be done in next year (2018). It's in the Austin, Texas area.

Auction description:

Pebble Beach 2019

Lot 027

1961 Jaguar E-Type Fixed-Head Coupe

Chassis: 885018

Engine: R1447-9

This car, chassis 885018, is the 18th of the 20 outside latch Coupes, and today it stands among the most correctly restored and brilliantly finished examples in existence. In 2016, the Jaguar was the fortunate subject of a 4,250-hour restoration by the renowned Jeff’s Resurrections of Taylor, Texas. A particularly intact and undamaged example, retaining its original engine (block and cylinder head), gearbox, and differential, the Jaguar was disassembled and painstakingly renewed in its original, striking color combination of Opalescent Gunmetal – which was matched to a section of original paint found in the car – with a red leather interior. Exhaustive effort was made during the two-year, photo-documented restoration process to prepare the car exactly as delivered, including reproducing the factory chalk and grease-pencil markings that it received upon final inspection at the factory in August 1961.

Following more than a year of research and the gathering of numerous, all but unobtainable parts, including date-coded electrical components, proper hoses, clamps and clips, and period OEM American-market headlights, the restoration began in earnest. The E-Type’s interior was also painstakingly restored including its correct roadster-spec seats and rare chrome-trimmed sun visors. In all, well over $400,000 was spent to achieve the truly awesome result.

Since its completion in 2018, 885018 has competed at the highest levels of Jaguar Clubs of North America (JCNA) and concours competition; it has received three 100-point scores at JCNA events and has taken Best of Class honors or significant special awards wherever it has been shown. A true labor of love for its impassioned owner, this E-Type Coupe stands atop most all others for its impeccable restoration, original matching-numbers components, and its extreme rarity. It is worthy of a special place in any world-class collection.

SOLD $626,500

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?
