Seller's description:

1969 Jaguar E-Type

Colour

Engine size 4235

Seller Type Trade

Town Pencader

Location Wales

Country United Kingdom

Late model Series 1 for full restoration

Matching numbers and largely complete car

Just two owners from new

Rare opportunity to create your perfect E-Type

The History and Paperwork

V5 records first registration on 27th March 1969 

Other DVLA records indicate registration on 26th February 1964 which appears to be incorrect

Jaguar Heritage Certificate supplied with car 

This shows a build date of June 1968 and original Opalescent SIlver Blue metallic paintwork 

It also confirms this is a matching numbers RHD car

DVLA VIN records appear incorrect showing 1121908 chassis number

We suspect this shoud be 1E21908 which would be correct for a late Series 1.5 

The last RHD FHC was chassis number 1E21959

The buyer may wish to clarify the VIN records with the vendor 

DVLA records show that the engine carries the correct ‘7E’ prefix of XK E-Type motors 

We note a colour change to green on 20th July 1978 

Retains its original Wolverhampton area registration plate 

New V5 applied for from DVLA with the correct details matching the vehicles Jaguar Heritage Certificate.

Vendor advises original parts with the car include: 

Triple SU carburettors 

Front suspension parts

Engine which we are told turns

4 speed synchromesh gearbox 

IRS unit and differential 

This car is a Series 1 fixed head coupe, first registered in Wolverhampton and recently found in Cornwall near the Lizard. We understand that it is a two owner car, the seller acquiring the car in 1976 whilst living in the Midlands.

He fitted a tow bar soon after - to tow his dinghy - before relocating to Cornwall in the late 1980s. The car was then stripped in preparation for a rebuild that never happened, resulting in the car being stored in a shipping container for the next 35 years. 

Recently rediscovered it clearly requires full restoration, although looks to be pleasingly complete. There is a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Certificate to verify the matching numbers status. We have not had sight of this but we have checked the V5 VIN number against E-Type chassis records. This is recorded as a seven digit number - all Series 1 E-Type VINs start 1E so we suspect there is a recording error. 

The Heritage Certificate shows a build date of June 1968. The final Series 1.5 FHC RHD car was chassis number 1E21959, making this car potentially 51st from last Series 1 FHC RHD car built. The buyer may wish to check this information directly with the Certificate. 

The Condition

Appears to be a virtually complete Series 1.5 FHC RHD car 

Some preparation work appears to have already been done to some panels 

Webasto-style sunroof model 

Two bar and additional fog lights fitted to rear

Many original E-Type components and trim items 

Fiber Glass S1.5 E Type Bonnet appears to be in solid, undamaged condition

Interior will require a full refurbishment 

Blue leather interior with non-headrest seats

Original E-Type factory wheel appears to be fitted

Full restoration will be required 

The buyer should expect to source trim and other parts

The Mechanics 

4,235cc straight six XK Jaguar engine 

VIN records indicate that this engine carries the correct ‘7E’ E-Type XK engine prefix 

4 speed synchromesh manual gearbox 

Matching numbers car 

Original parts listed above including carburettors, suspension parts, engine, gearbox and IRS

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?
