JAGUAR E-TYPE-SERIES 1. 1967, 36K MILES WITH INCREDIBLE HISTORY.
Jaguar E-Type Series 1 -1967 -Original Uk RHD .
Amazing and very rare to have the cars entire history from brand new to present day recorded in the history file.
Jaguar heritage trust certificate confirms this stunning fixed head E-type was produced is 1967 and Sold by Henlys of London brand new is January 1968. It stayed in the same family almost all of its life and retains its original green log book. This stunning e-type has never had a full restoration , it has always been Primrose yellow and although paintwork has been re- done at a specialist e-type restorer it is still very original and still as it left the factory. On top of this, this 1 family plus 1 owner car has had every step of its history manually logged all its life to the present day. From day of collection new , every journey , every change of oil , every fill up at petrol stations etc has been logged. Mind blowing and very rare to have such an original UK car with such detailed history. We hope the new enthusiast will continue this important piece of history.
Details of the car itself.. The pictures and FullHD walk round video is exactly what you get. The bodywork and paintwork is immaculate and is still in its original Primrose colour way. The bright work is all in 1st class order and there is no cheap aftermarket parts here . The mileage is confirmed by the most amazing records and sits at circa 36k miles . (Find another !!!) . The interior is excellent . Again not a fresh restoration with everything brand-new but all original with minimal wear and usage. Everything works as it should and the interior space is a very nice place to be. You can almost smell the history in this car and its a privilege to be part of this fairly unique classic cars history whilst handling the sale.
In the history file when analysed it is noted that the cars mileage is so low as this E-type was put into quality storage for some 25 years. After this an amount of re-commissioning was needed . This was done by a marque specialist in 2018, the mileage at this stage was a mere 28, 872 miles . After the family ownership and coming to the previous owner , whom is a collector who we know well , this car has been used for shows and tours and won some best of show trophies along the way. A large amount of recent expenditure.again with E-type specialists / restorers has been spent and is all recorded in the history file. Works include fitting of complete electronic ignition distributor, brake discs , new calliper upgrade, rebuilt diff, ball joints , ss brake hoses etc etc . Invoices in the history show approx 11k worth of work since 2018 . The file also contains the original manuals that came with the car from new . Also a valuation certificate done by Footman James (properly) values at 95k.
I can confirm, knowing the car well and knowing the previous owner very well this E-type drives superbly and performs exactly as it should. Constant 40psi oil pressure at idle when warm . We would love to see this Jag go to a fellow enthusiast who will love and look after it and keep up its amazing history file, even if it goes abroad.
To answer a question we know that will come . “Why is it being sold ? “ It is good to know , the owner is keen to see it go to a good home and it’s a house move and some extensive time of life travel plans that await this Jag enthusiast.
Amazing opportunity to buy a “proper” not messed with iconic original RHD series 1.
