eBay/Kruse auction 1/12/2002, Scottsdale, AZ, lot #779. Sports Car Market report:

Four-speed. Chrome wires. A sweetie. Well-done paint, clean and fresh interior. Well detailed under the hood. Lots of pre-block attention. Plenty of details to keep it from being a #1, but an excellent Sunday driver.

"1962 JAGUAR XKE COUPE

LOT #498 - NO RESERVE

2001 BJCCA CCA

SOLD FOR $16,200

OPTIONS

COLOR - GREEN

TRANS - MANUAL

CYLINDERS - 6

ENGINE SIZE - 3.8

HORSEPOWER - 34

VIN - 885099

The automobile was the 99th "E" type made according to the vin #885099 (the beginning chassis #885001 3.8 E-type F.H.C. was 1961.) This E-Jag was one of the first 100 LH drive, fixed head coupes made for the US market and is an early "flat floor" design. It was originally painted an off white color but was repainted red when owner purchased in 1986. The car was as originally built with exception of the fuel pump and alternator. The bonnet, front fenders, and rocker panels were replaced with new, factory made (Coventry, Eng.) pieces. Lucas fuel pump and dynamo (generator) replaced the US made units on the car, restoring it to its original state. The chassis was stripped and rebuilt. The engine is original and has not been rebuilt to my knowledge, I estimate approx 2000 hours usage over 60,000 miles. Braking system is stainless steel using remanufactured Girling calipers with stainless pistons, the car is painted green and clear coated. Exhaust system is stainless also."

Car to return to auction 6/19

Auction description:

Sold for US$ 123,200 inc. premium

Greenwich Concours d'Elegance Auction

1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I Coupe

Chassis no. 885099

Engine no. R2252-9 (see text)

3,781cc DOHC Inline 6-Cylinder Engine

Triple SU Carburetors

Approximately 265bhp at 5,800rpm

5-Speed Manual Transmission (see text)

*The 99th left-hand drive E-Type Coupe completed

*Flat floor and welded bonnet louver example

*Nearly $30,000 in recent service

*Subtle upgrades for improved drivability

This E-Type Coupe is among the first 100 left-hand drive examples produced. Built on October 18, 1961 and dispatched on November 2nd of the same year, it was sent new to Jaguar Cars of New York where it was sent to its first owner, M.L. Beresford. Finished in Opalescent Dark Green over Biscuit hides, the color scheme it retains today, the early history of the car is as yet not well documented.

Known history of the car, based on past descriptions, indicate that the car was purchased by its likely-fifth-from-last owner in 1986. Painted red at the time of purchase, it was described as having been the recipient of a largely cosmetic restoration with the body and chassis both being stripped and rebuilt. Pictures from about 2000 show the car in dark green with a black interior and California black plates. Sold in 2001, it was then given a frame-off restoration that was completed in May of 2005. When the Jaguar was offered again in 2006, it was described as having a mechanical rebuild to the engine, transmission, and clutch along with a freshly retrimmed Connolly leather interior and British Racing Green paint. Selling for thrice what it had fetched in 2001, it head to Oregon for four years—during which time the engine overhauled again. It was sold again in 2010 and eventually came out East and into the garage of the consignor in 2015.

Since taking ownership of the car, the Jag has been meticulously maintained with over $27,000 in receipts on file. Among the major work completed includes a complete overhaul and rebuild of the suspension and brake systems including the replacement of many wear-related parts, the installation of electronic ignition, overhaul of the steering system, significant repairs to the electrical system, and cosmetic work to the paint and trunk trim.

Showing very nicely today, this early E-Type Coupe is currently fitted with an aluminum radiator and electric fan for improved cooling and a five-speed manual transmission for a better driving experience—especially at high speed. It should be noted that while the stamping on the head matches the chassis plate and is original to the car, there is no number present on the engine block.

Complete with a copy of its Jaguar Dailmer Heritage Trust Certificate, an owners handbook, and receipts going back to the current owner's purchase, this very early E-Type Coupe would make an excellent entry on any number of 1000 mile tours or a real show stopper at the next Cars and Coffee.

This car is titled as a model year 1962.
