Car to be at auction 7/17

Auction description:
Date 26/07/2017
Location Imperial War Museum Duxford
Lot No 103
Make Jaguar
Model E-Type Coupe
Year 1964
Vehicle Registration EVH121B
Chassis Number 890528

CC 4200

- Supplied new via Jaguar Cars of New York in 1964 and repatriated some twenty-seven years later

- Entrusted to RS Classics of North Shields by its long-term keeper for an extensive restoration that was completed in 2016

- Uprated with 4.2 litre engine, all synchromesh gearbox and better brakes

Supplied new via Jaguar Cars of New York in 1964, chassis 890528 was repatriated some twenty-seven years later. Converted from left- to right-hand drive thereafter, the E-type also benefited from the installation of a larger 4.2 litre XK DOHC engine, all synchromesh gearbox and uprated brakes. Having served its last registered keeper well for nigh on twenty-five years, the two-seater was despatched to RS Classics of North Shields as a reward. Specialising in Jaguar E-Types and Porsches as well as RS Fords, the family run firm stripped 'EVH 121B' back to a bare shell and then had it soda blasted (revealing the Coupe's original body number tag in the process). Mounted on a rotisserie frame, the monocoque was carefully repaired and lead loaded as necessary before being repainted in its initial Golden Sand livery (a striking hue that none other than Lofty England specified for his own E-Type Series I Fixed Head Coupe). The installation of an earlier-type turned aluminium dashboard and centre console made for a wonderful contrast with the new Black leather upholstery and Beige headlining. Body coloured stone protection was applied to the underside and the engine and gearbox repainted prior to reinstallation (the former being treated to new core plugs). The wiring loom was reinstated and the brightwork rejuvenated. Attention was paid to the steering, brakes and suspension too and modern anti-vibration matting added to the floorpan / footwells. The refurbishment was completed last year and chronicled via a 58-page pdf document copies of which can be sent to interested parties. Starting readily upon inspection, this undeniably handsome E-Type is variously described by the vendor as being in 'good' (electrical equipment), 'very good' (gearbox, bodywork, paintwork, interior trim) or 'excellent' (engine) condition. Worthy of close inspection, it is accompanied by a MOT certificate valid until September 2017.

Auction description:
ESTIMATE £80,000- £90,000
Auction Thoroughbred & Vintage at Fontwell House
Lot Number 135
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number 890528
Year 1964
Make Jaguar
Model E-Type Series 1 3.8 Fixed Head Coupe

Finished in Opalescent sand with black leather interior, this superb example underwent an extensive restoration in 1991 and a further nut and bolt restoration between 2015 and 2017, which as you would expect included an engine rebuild. Still retaining its original colour combination, the car has however had the very important and appropriate changes to its rear-axle ratio.

Having travelled a mere 2,000 miles since completion of its nut and bolt restoration, the car can be described as nicely 'driven in' and is said to drive beautifully. Offered at what must be a fraction of the price such a restoration would cost, this lot is not to be missed.

Auction description:

1964 Jaguar E-Type FHC

Colour Opalescent Golden Sand

Odometer 111,000 Miles

Engine size 4200

Location Durham

Country United Kingdom

• Originally supplied to Jaguar USA

• Returned to the UK in 1991 and renovated

• Fitted with later 4.2 engine and new rear axle

• Restored again in 2015

• Kept at and maintained by classic specialist in the north-east

• Electric Fan and new thermostatic controller

• Brakes upgraded

• Dynamo replaced with Dynator

• Aldon Electronic Ignition 

Though the E-Type is a legend of the British motor industry, this model – a late S1 3.8 FHC – was actually first supplied to Jaguar Cars of New York, as a left-hand drive car, in 1964. It spent almost 30 years in the USA before it “returned” to the UK in 1991.

As it came over to our shores, the car was converted to its current right-hand drive, along with some other mechanical upgrades. That included the larger 4.2 engine, along with the change from the US-market rear-axle ratio to a more UK-appropriate item.

It was restored for a second time over a two-year period from 2015-2017, which included being stripped back to bare metal and repainted in the original Opalescent Golden Sand paint, before being sold at auction to its current owner – a classic car enthusiast who'd always wanted an E-Type in late 2017.

However the seller found he didn't actually get along with the car all that well, having never driven an E-Type before, and despite sticking with it for a couple of years to allow it to grow on him, they still haven't gelled. That's good news for any E-Type fans, who now have the opportunity to pick up a very special car.

The Paperwork

The bulk of the paperwork with the car covers its life with its current owner. There's bills and invoices well into four figures, with minor work and a few more in-depth items to keep it in top condition, all kept in a dedicated folder. The car is MOT exempt, but nonetheless has a current MOT.

Along with these there's a data sheet from the auction at which the current owner bought the car, and an official letter from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust documenting the car's identity.

You'll also find an original service manual folder and service handbook with the car, and both are in excellent condition.

The Interior

The cabin is in generally excellent condition, with the seats and carpets finished in black and a beige headliner. There's very little by way of wear anywhere on the two front seats, nor on the leather lining the cabin, sills and door cards.

That covers the rest of the cabin too. All of the dials and switches are in great condition, set into a newer aluminium centre console and dash panel. That's set off by the large, wood-rimmed steering wheel with the E-Type logo on the boss.

The rear luggage area is in immaculate condition, even down to the highly polished boot stay. In fact all of the cabin chrome is polished to an impressive shine – almost too nice to touch in case you leave fingerprints.

Everything works as it ought, though the current owner notes that the radio – an original item – only works intermittently, which seems to be an internal issue rather than with any ancillary wiring.

The Exterior

On the outside, the Jaguar is in excellent condition, as you'd expect from two thorough restorations over the past 55 years. It's in its original Opalescent Golden Sand paint, and it's close to flawless throughout – including underneath – bar a small patch on the driver's side rear wheel arch, and a mark ahead of the passenger door.

Each of the four wheels, in the classic wire design, is in excellent condition, including the turbine centre caps. That goes for all of the chrome brightwork around the car too, from the front and rear bumpers to the window and light surrounds.

Underneath the car is no less clean than on top. It has only covered around 2,000 miles since its most recent restoration, and while some of the mechanical parts are wearing a little more mileage, the structure and vital components are in great condition.

The Mechanics

The E-Type benefits from a number of upgrades and modernisation features from its original specification. First supplied as a 3.8-litre car, the larger 4.2-litre engine was fitted when it came back to the UK. The US rear axle was also replaced, along with upgrades to the braking system – all common modifications to make the E-Type a little more liveable on today's roads.

They're successful too; the Jaguar drives in about a modern fashion as you could expect, while retaining the E-Type charm. There's no complaints over any aspect of the mechanicals, from the four-speed gearbox to the brakes and suspension.

Everything works just-so, including the straight six which fires up without any hesitation – and makes all the right noises and none of the wrong ones. The car is currently kept at, and maintained by, a classic car specialist, and all the mechanical components present in excellent condition.
