Info gathered with permission from:
www.hendi.nl/xke/main.htm

In early 1976 875147 was located in New Mexico. Its prior history, included at least two owners, and work performed by the last of these reportedly included removing the engine and transmission, overboring by 0.040 inches, and installing Hepolite pistons. The car had reportedly been altered to negative ground and had a Chevrolet generator installed. It had non-original seats, was fitted with a Parrish hardtop, and had wood trim on the dash. It had gone about 22.000 miles since its restoration. By 1977, it had changed hands.

Tom Haddock (E-type restoration guide author) writes in the July '80 issue of Ejag magazine that this car has been added to his register of early cars

This very early LHD Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8L Roadster was manufactured on the 28th June 1961, making it one of the very earliest examples. The date cast number to show block is 20-2-61. These early examples featured "Outside Bonnet Locks" and "Flat Floors". The car was originally dispatched to Jaguar Cars New York where it sold to its first private owner Mr. Gordon Sweenie, presented in Pearl Grey over and Dark Blue Hide and with a matching Blue Hood. In early 1976 it was located in New Mexico. Its prior history, included at least two owners, and work performed by the last of these reportedly included an restoration of the engine and the transmission. The car had reportedly been altered temporarily to negative ground with a Chevrolet generator, non-original racing seats, a Parrish hardtop and had wood trim on the dash. By 1977, it had changed hands and all of it's original parts were reinstalled. In the late 1980's it was subsequently returned to the United Kingdom where it was owned by Mr. Chadwick of Chesire, England. It remained in the United Kingdom for circa 10 years before being sold to a gentleman located in Norway, first receiving Norwegian registration in July 1997 following a full and thorough restoration. The car remained with this owner until February 2004, when it was sold to Berge Paul Magne, still in Norway. Early on in his ownership the car was subject to a further sympathetic restoration, during which the color was changed to the handsome shade of Blue it today presents in. During this lasting ownership it regularly entered the small selection of Concours events available with commendatory results. In May 2018 it subsequently returned to the UK from Norway. Under DK engineering's care it has been subjected to a comprehensive mechanical recommission from where it was bought by Hellmut Schumperli, a collector in Zurich, Switzerland.

On December 18, 1989, Jaguar Cars Exports Limited confirmed to Mr. Chadwick in England:

Chassis No: 875147

Engine Number: R1228-9

Body No: R1242

Paint Color: Pearl Grey

Trim Color: Dark Blue

Date of manufacture: 28.6.1961

First Dealer: JCNY

The Gear Box Number was originally EB 332 JS. During an early restoration in the US it had been replaced by a MK1 gear box and subsequently imported back to England like that. During the mechanical recommission DK Engineering has exchanged it with a Gear Box of a very early Jaguar E Series 1.

The result is a beautiful Jaguar E Series 1, Flat Floor, Outside Bonnet Locks, all original, all matching numbers but the Gear Box.

Was interested, but could not get the money together. And imho a bit too highly priced for the non-original parts....


Hopefully she will not end up as race car.


Is the new owner known? Where is she going to? Liked the original colour combination.... would have meant to do her once more

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?
