Additional description from above auction:
LOT 227
CHASSIS#:
875712
ESTIMATE:
$ 125,000 -- $ 150,000
The example presented here is an original California black plate car that was in dry storage from 1971 until its recent no-expense-spared nut-and-bolt restoration. This early example has the flat floor and aluminum interior panels and both the craftsmanship and fit and finish are superb. Since restoration it has been driven 150 careful miles and in June 2005 was shown in Estes, Colorado at a JCNA Concours where it scored 99.83 points and was awarded Best in Class.

Mechanically, the 3.8 engine was rebuilt to factory specifications and calibrated. It was fitted with new pistons, bearings, valves, guides, seats, seals and timing chain. The head was completely rebuilt, as were the carburetors, clutch system and brake systems. The
driveshaft was balanced, new suspension installed, shocks restored and part of the chassis and many other parts were powder-coated. The under carriage was completely rebuilt, new wire harness installed, the gas tank restored and epoxy sealed, new aluminum radiator and fan installed, and the heater system and fuel pump were restored. All electrical components, gauges, knobsand switches were rebuilt, rescreened or replaced. The top bows and seat frames were powder coated, stone guards replaced, new Triplex windshield and door glass fitted, new drip panels, an exhaust system was installed, and the rear end was completely rebuilt along with the transmission.

Cosmetically, the body was stripped to bare metal and repaired, as needed, including the body, doors, bonnet and boot, then fitted to the body, epoxy sealed and painted silver, color sanded and buffed. New rubber, seals, grommets and gaskets, trim and brightwork was replaced or replated. A new proper interior, carpet panels and seats were all redone in black leather, all of which show absolutely no wear. It is rare that we see an end product with this much time and effort spent on detail and overall quality throughout the restoration process. The results speak for themselves and the car is simply breathtaking.

Undoubtedly, this is one of the finest examples of an E-Type roadster for sale today and the vendor is confident enough to even guarantee many aspects of the car’s mechanical condition in awarranty. Those interested should see an RM Auctions representative for details. Additionally, it is rare that we have the pleasure of offering an E-Type finished in this attractive color scheme – its overall look and presentation make it an impressive sight to behold. The new owner will also receive a CD detailing its extensive restoration. We encourage close examination of this Jaguar as more than likely this example will be wearing a JCNA ribbon following its next outing.

The term “best in the world,” is used far too often when describing vintage cars, however, it is quite possibly applicable here.

Note this auction indicates the body number is different than at the Classic Showcase offer. The data plate in this auction shows R1775 Classic Showcase showed R1820. The other numbers appear to match.

Lot Number 263

1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8-Litre Roadster

$175,000 - $225,000

Offered without reserveRM | Sotheby's - ARIZONA 2019 - Offered on: Friday, January 18, 2019

Chassis No. 875712

Engine No. R2052-9

Highly desirable early production Series 1 example

Beautifully restored by marque specialists

Gorgeous color combination of silver over black

Upgraded with Tremec five-speed gearbox

Original 4-speed gearbox included

This superb Series 1 E-Type was completed on 5 October 1961 and finished in Carmen Red over black. It is a highly prized early first-series example with flat floors and covered head lamps. Originally a California black-plate car, it was first owned by Burt Sugarvian of Los Angeles. In 1971, the E-Type was then placed in a climate-controlled facility for storage. While its ensuing history is unknown, the car was later given a meticulous restoration by marque specialists at Classic Showcase of Oceanside, California, in 2004.

The original engine was fully rebuilt with new pistons, bearings, valves, guides, seals, and timing chain. The head, clutch, carburetors, brakes, rear end, and transmission were rebuilt and the driveshaft was balanced. The shocks were restored, new suspension hardware was fitted, and much of the chassis as well as the top bows and seat frames were powder coated. All systems were replaced or meticulously restored. Not a single mechanical or electrical component of this superb E-Type Jaguar was left untouched.

Meanwhile, the body of the E-Type was stripped to bare metal and repaired as necessary, then reassembled with careful attention to detail. Once sealed with epoxy primer, this 1961 Jaguar was painted in its current shade of silver, color sanded, and buffed to a mirror-like finish. All seals, gaskets, and brightwork were replaced or re-plated and the interior upholstery was redressed in black leather with a new top and carpet. The car also received a Tremec five-speed transmission to render the E-Type ultimately drivable and superbly suited to participate in rallies and distinguished touring events.

Not surprisingly, the 1961 E-Type emerged in concours condition and was immediately showcased at the JCNA concours held at the Stanley Hotel in Estes, Colorado, in June 2005. There it scored an impressive 99.26 points and was awarded Best in Class. Following its debut, the car was sold to the late John O’Quinn, a respected collector in Houston, Texas. In 2012 the Jaguar was acquired by the previous owner and would participate in a 3,000-mile tour without issue. Several years thereafter it passed to the current consignor – a Jaguar enthusiast – with fewer than 4,000 post-restoration miles on the odometer.

This attractive and expertly restored Jaguar E-Type includes its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate and remains in excellent condition – poised for a new adventure, be it Jaguar Club events and judging, or a comfortable tour among other distinguished automobiles.
