For sale (guide price £80,000-£100,000) at Brightwells auction on 11th May 2016. Auctioneers comments below.
First registered in August 1964, this particular E-Type (chassis number 861754) is the 45th from last 3.8 Coupe produced in right-hand drive (the last being chassis number 861799). A 'matching numbers' machine that still retains its original engine and Moss gearbox, it has had just five owners to date and was acquired by the current registered keeper in January 2008. It was treated to a total nut-and-bolt restoration in the late 1990s and has covered only some 4,600 miles since, the odometer being re-set to zero when it was put back on the road in 1998.

Although many of the restoration bills have sadly gone missing, even a cursory examination of the car reveals just how thorough the restoration must have been and the car presents extremely well both above and below. The Opalescent Golden Sand bodywork remains in excellent condition with exemplary panel gaps all round, and the red leather interior is equally impressive, as is the under-bonnet appearance with a beautifully detailed engine bay.

Various upgrades are apparent, among them a full stainless steel exhaust system including the manifolds; high-torque starter motor; electronic ignition; uprated fuel pump; electric cooling fan; Coopercraft brake calipers and vented brake discs. The chrome wire wheels still look virtually as new and are shod with very good tyres all round. A Tracker anti-theft system has also been fitted at some point.

Last on the road about four years ago, the car has just been thoroughly recommissioned to prepare it for sale including the fitment of a brand new steering rack and track rod ends. It fired up instantly and ran beautifully when we were treated to a short test drive on the occasion of our visit, with excellent oil pressure and temperature and a notably slick and easy gearchange from the Moss 'box.

It comes with a fair few bills detailing maintenance over the past 18 years since the restoration was completed, eight old MOTs back to July 1998 (at 772 miles) and is due to have a fresh MOT in time for the sale, the last having expired in February 2013. A Heritage Certificate has also been applied for and should be with the car in time for the sale.

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?
