The Interior

Fully re-trimmed in magnolia leather

New carpets

Complete new interior roof lining and sun visors

The mark of a quality retrim is that the cabin should feel fresh and yet classic, and that’s very much the vibe in this E-Type. The trimming that’s taken place here was done to a high standard of quality, with magnolia leather and new carpets. The wood trim looks great, and these fresh materials blend seamlessly with the period details – the original Leyland-branded push-button radio, the elegant dials, the wood-rim steering wheel. It’s all highly pleasing to behold.

The seats are properly supportive, and tilt forward correctly to allow access to the equally neat rear bench. Inside the boot it’s all tastefully trimmed in magnolia too, with the boot floor panel hiding a matching spare chrome wire wheel.

The Exterior

Full body resto with new paint and re-chromed trim

New chrome wire wheels

The restoration work to the body has resulted in something straight and true with even panel gaps and a lovely finish to the new red paint. All of the exterior trim has either been replaced or re-chromed, and as such it gleams brightly like a new pin, and all of the era-correct details are present and correct.

The chrome wire wheels were purchased new during the resto at considerable expense, and are fitted with a matching set of tyres of the correct profile which have covered very few miles. You can see from the photos how beautifully presented it all is, with no flaws to the light lenses or window glass and all of the correct parts in place – and the presence of the USDM side markers acts as a neat continuation in this E-Type’s story from its former life in New York.

The Mechanicals

Drives extremely well, with correct temps and pressures

Very recent recon gearbox

This is a tremendously smooth and willing E-Type. The V12 has evidently been paid the proper attention by people with an in-depth knowledge of these engines, as not only does it run sweetly (starting on the first attempt, idling evenly, and pulling strongly through the revs), but it’s very civilised in its manner. It’s often the case with V12 Jags that the driver needs to keep one eye on the temperature gauge, but that’s not a concern at all with this one. And it makes a glorious noise too, thanks to the new stainless steel exhaust system with Series 3-correct quad fantail exits.

The transmission is equally smooth, having been replaced this year with a recon unit. Also addressed during the restoration were the brakes and suspension, with everything throughout renewed and operating correctly, and the left- to right-hand-drive conversion has been carried out with thorough attention to detail, the power-steering making city motoring a breeze. Truly, a sublime car to drive.

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?
