Now undergone a complete nut and bolt restoration by a well known Jaguar restorer in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, not far from the car's birthplace 60 years ago. A massive invoice folder, along with full photographic restoration images accompanies a third document folder endorsing the pedigree of this unique and highly desirable flat floor model. A nut and bolt restoration, offered at an attractive saving to cost due to a change in circumstances. As close an experience to buying a new E Type as you are likely to encounter!

This left-hand drive E-Type is one such early car. Completed on 16 December 1961, chassis number 885325 was distributed to a Mr. A. S. Anderson via Jaguar Cars, New York, USA in early 1962. One of 680 flat-floor fixed head coupes built, it also features louvers welded, rather than stamped, into the bonnet—another indicator of early production.
According to the accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, the car retains is numbers-matching 3.8-liter inline-six engine and cylinder head, and it is fitted with the proper four-speed Moss transmission.
Befitting a car of this rarity and appeal, chassis 885325 was recently subjected to a total restoration in the U.K. and is said to have cost the equivalent of roughly $165,000. At this time, it was finished in its factory-specified colors of Cream (Old English White) over a Black interior. Presenting in stunning condition throughout, this E-Type gives the modern onlooker a strong impression of how it must have appeared to its fortunate first owner nearly six decades ago.
Offered with a tool roll, copper mallet, Shelley jack, and spare wheel and tire, the car is also accompanied by invoices and photographs of its restoration—in total, 100-plus photos in three A4 files. Having seen minimal use since work was completed, this early E-Type fixed head coupe is an ideal candidate for display or driving enjoyment.
