Chassis Number: 1E20537
Engine Number: 7E12868/9 (original 7E 3523-9 block included in sale)
Number of cylinders: 6
Year of Manufacture: 1965
Estimate (£): 50,000 - 60,000
This original UK RHD example, was bought by a Mr JMC Shand and first registered on the 2nd April 1965. Mr Shand was a well-known race and rally driver - particularly driving Jaguar MkVIIs & XK120s but also Lotus lightweights in the 50s & 60s. The car subsequently passed to Mr. I Willis of Washington, Tyne & Wear, before being bought by the current owner in 1984.
At the time of purchase, the mileage was 62,000. Between 1984 and 1990 it covered approximately 8,600 miles and all of the MoTs for this period are available. The car was taken off the road and fully restored in the 1990s - and subsequently stored in a dehumidified garage until it was recommissioned in March 2012, the MoT showing a mileage of 70,637. The car was again MoT'd in 2013 with a mileage of 70,684 and has subsequently covered less than 20 miles.
Earlier this year the car was once again awoken and fully recommissioned by Jagtech Limited, Jaguar Specialists with the engine being fully rebuilt to exacting manufacturer's tolerances by E-type engine specialists, West Riding Independent Ltd at a cost in excess of £7,000.
Where possible parts were used from the original engine, including the head and crank, however the original block was found to be damaged and has been replaced with the correct type from a 1967 Jaguar E-type engine. The original engine block (7e 3523-9) will be included in the sale and we understand it could be repaired if desired.
As well as the engine work undertaken a further £6,000 has been spent on re-commissioning the car to ensure it looks its finest.
Presented in sparkling Opalescent Dark Green and in superb condition all round, the car is accompanied by a similarly excellent history file. A very well cared for example with an interesting history and benefitting from significant expenditure, this car wants nothing but a new custodian.

My Grandfather Jimmy Shand used to race this car. I would love to try and locate it in order to perhaps visit the car or see it when it is next out at a show or event.
Fingers crossed for a reply!
