Car to be at auction 6/17
Auction Coys Fontwell June 2017
Lot Number 134
Reg. Number ELB 125J
Chassis Number 1E31493
Model E-Type 4.2 Coupe
his unique E-type was purchased new by Moustafa Ammar who was an Egyptian Diplomat. He purchased the car new in Geneva when he was posted from London to the Egyptian Embassy in Switzerland. He used the car comprehensively. Driving around Europe and even taking the long journey back to Egypt on occasion. (Petrol receipts found in the car to confirm).When Moustafa returned to the Egyptian embassy in London in 1971 he brought the car back with him and it was given the registration ELB 125J. He used the car regularly until 1989 when a major engine overhaul was carried out by Martin Pyke at Classic spares (Now a very respected Jaguar engine specialist).The E Type was only used for another 100 or so miles after the rebuild and then put into a dry garage. Liberated by Coys specialists in the UK some 28 years later, it is offered with a very good amount of history including the original bill of sale and warranty.
The chance to buy a one owner matching numbers car that is totally complete and structurally very solid and straight come once in a life time. This example can easily be mechanically overhauled and made road legal to use as is, or can be restored by its new , second owner to its former glory.
