Car to be at auction 5/17
www.coys.co.uk/cars/1962-jaguar-e-type-series-1-3-8-roadster-2

Auction description:
ESTIMATE £130,000-£150,000
Auction Coys Royal Horticultural Halls
Lot Number 122
Reg. Number UK Registered
Chassis Number 877891
Year 1962
Make Jaguar
Model E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster

Manufactured on the 24th of August 1962 this is an excellent matching numbers example of arguably the most sought after specification for any E-Type; an early Series 1 3.8 Roadster.

Still fitted with its original triple SU carburettors and complimented with the original factory 4- speed manual Moss gearbox, this very early and usable Series 1 3.8 litre roadster is offered in outstanding condition and has been part of a private collection where it has been cherished for a number years. It's clear to see that the climate controlled environment where she has lived in has done her proud.

Finished in Metallic Silver with full blue leather and corresponding blue carpets, she looks fabulous while boasting matching numbers to the Jaguar Heritage certificate. Having undergone light restoration work in 1994, MoT's dating back to 2006 would indicate that the car has done a mere 7000 miles since.

The interior is in excellent condition with the original sport seats, aluminium dash and wood & aluminium steering wheel. The blue soft top is in fabulous condition and comes with matching hood cover. All the chrome work, wire wheels and body lines are as new.

This car is in excellent condition in all respects, and rather unsurprisingly is described to 'start every time and drive like a dream'. Looking through the extensive history file and service invoices, its plain to see that the car has been loved and well maintained though-out her life. With the iconic E-Type considered to be an ever appreciating asset, this very early example is not to be missed.

Lot 232

1962 Jaguar E-Type S1 Roadster

Estimate £80,000 - £100,000

Registration: VFF 525

Chassis No: 877891

Engine No: R77039

Mileage: 8,000

•: Excellent mechanical condition

•: Matching numbers

•: Marcus Barclay maintained

Imported in the mid 1990’s from the west coast of the USA, this wonderful S1 Roadster underwent a full restoration once repatriated to the UK. Painted in silver with blue leather and hood, this design classic presents very well. Due to coming from a dry state, the car was reported to be remarkably solid. Built on 24th August 1962, the car was soon exported to the USA. Since its repatriation and subsequent restoration, the car was also converted to right hand drive. The vendor acquired the car in 2017 after a long search and bought the car on the advice of renowned Jaguar specialist Marcus Barclay who noted how good the car was, especially mechanically. Marcus Barclay has since maintained the car for the vendor with service invoices supplied showing the work carried out. Present also in the V5C registration document, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, history file, its original chassis plate, a photo record of the restoration, maintenance handbook, service manual and sales catalogue. Reported to run and drive extremely well, this beautiful design classic is ready to draw admiring gazes wherever it goes. Consigned by Will Penrose.

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?
