Car to be at auction 2/17
Lot 343 - 1963 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Fixed Head Coupe
Auction Coys Olympia 2017
Lot Number 343
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number 860759
This UK supplied right hand drive 3.8 has had just three previous keepers on the V5, and has covered a believed 795 miles in the last 20 years.
Purchased by the current vendor from a deceased estate after having been restored and subsequently stored for 21 years, the car was last taxed for road use in 1995. With his original intention to completely restore the vehicle to a very respectable standard, after reviewing the underlying condition and the exceptional originality of the car he have decided that such a radical project was fundamentally unnecessary and could in fact be detrimental to its overall heritage, so he simply has had the car recommissioned to its present day roadworthy and glorious condition.
The work was undertaken by Jaguar specialist in Berkshire where a mechanical inspection was undertaken. As one would expect with a car that had been stored for so many years, it required the replacement and refurbishment of the majority of the braking systems main components as well as the fuel tank, radiator, dynamo and carburettors. A complete service of the engine and running gear was also undertaken and the car was eventually started for the first time in 21 years without any hesitation. The engine and running gear is reported to be in very good condition, there is no evidence of oil contamination in the coolant or exhaust, oil pressure is very good and the compression on each cylinder are excellent as would be expected of a car that has been properly overhauled. The interior of the car with the exception of the carpets and headlining is all original.
The underside and chassis of the car is in very good condition and there is very little evidence of any significant rust or corrosion. The overall paintwork is in a good condition with some minor blemishes, which adds to the cars underlying originality.
