Additional description from above auction:
The remarkable presentation of this original and unrestored Series I Jaguar E-Type is a credit to its first caretaker, William B. Means of Metamora, Michigan.

The E-Type Mr. Means ordered was manufactured on February 11, 1966, and finished in the striking color combination of Pale Primrose Yellow with black leather upholstery and a black soft top. On February 21, 1966, the completed E-Type was dispatched and then sold through Jaguar Cars New York to Falvey Motor Sales, a British car specialist in Detroit, Michigan. As delivered to Mr. Means, the Jaguar was outfitted with Dunlop Road Speed tires and an optional Blaupunkt radio.

Mr. Means was, primarily, a collector of antique automobiles, and drove his E-Type Roadster infrequently - as Michigan weather allowed. When Jaguar announced that it would be discontinuing the E-Type, Mr. Means decided that his low-mileage Series I model had potential as a future collectible and prepared the car for extended static storage. Last registered in 1973, this 7,500-mile E-Type has been sitting for over four decades and, today, presents as a time capsule in virtually new condition.

The bodywork displays excellent panel fit - a quality rarely duplicated on restored E-Types - while the factory body tag is present on the rear license plate panel and original factory chalk marks can be found throughout. Similarly, the original black leather upholstery and black fabric soft top are beautifully preserved and possess a light, consistent patina. The engine compartment is also in an impressively original state with the factory data plate and correct engine number stampings appearing clear and bright. Accompanying the sale of this remarkable car is a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, the original tool kit, jack, knock-off hammer, and Falvey Motor Sales leather key fob.

The next caretaker of this fabulous E-Type will have in his or her possession an unrestored automobile of the absolute highest order. Following a sympathetic mechanical recommissioning, this car may serve as a ticket to a wide variety of automotive events and is sure to be the star of any Jaguar gathering.

Truly a benchmark example of the legendary Series I E-Type - an important and iconic model from one of England's most successful sports car manufacturers - this 4.2-Litre Roadster can be distinguished from its brethren by its fascinating history, wonderful period color combination, and exceptionally low mileage.

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?
