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.

Car to return to auction 9/18
ESTIMATE £80,000- £90,000
Auction Thoroughbred & Vintage at Fontwell House
Lot Number 135
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number 890528
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.
