Seller's description:

1966 Jaguar E-Type

Colour Red

Odometer 57,554 Miles

Engine size 4235

Seller Type Private

Town Walsall

Location West Midlands

Country United Kingdom

Owned by the current family since 1993

Unused since £16,000 mechanical work less than one year ago

Genuine low mileage car

Factory correct colour combination restored in 1993

One of only 974 Series 1 2+2 cars

History and Paperwork

Original RHD car as confirmed by JHT certificate

JHT certificate verifies factory colour scheme and September 1966 registration date

Factory finished in Carmen Red with black interior as now 

DVLA records first registration as 12th June 1986

Colour change recorded on 28th September 1993 with previous colour silver

Acquired by the current family in 1993 and passed through various members 

Four registered keepers with vendor acquiring car on 31st March 2009 

Stored in a dry environment from 2011 to late 2022

£16,000 recommissioning work carried out from September 2022 to February 2023, with invoices available

Vendor tells us that the car has been unused since this work was completed 

History dating back to 1993 including old invoices and MOTs

All invoices for recommissioning work shown in photographs 

Photographs of car when it was painted silver with whitewall tyres

MOT to 26th February 2024 with no advisories and 67,460 miles showing on test 

The Condition

Factory correct red and black colour scheme 

Bodywork is in excellent condition with no signs of rust and only very minor marks

Good panel fit particularly to doors and bonnet 

Shows normal signs of wear or patina, but overall in very good condition

The body underwent a respray in 1993 to restore it to its original colour

Black leather interior with light signs of wear but very original 

Period eight-track sound system 

Three-spoke wood-rimmed factory-correct E-Type steering wheel 

Small rear seat looks barely used 

Headlining and trim fittings in good order throughout 

Now finished in its original factory Carmen Red, this beautiful 1966 2+2 looks every inch the classic British sports car. It has been in the same family ownership since 1993, when the bodywork was restored, which likely explains how well this work has held up. That and a period of dry storage between 2011 and 2022. The work was clearly done to a high standard - a quick perusal of the panel fit across the doors and bonnets confirms this. The paintwork shows very light marks but you will have to look hard to find them. 

The underside is in similarly well kept order with clean panels and unbroken undersealing. 

Inside the black leather interior, which is also factory correct, is in well kept order with a gentle level of patina that adds to this car’s character. It is very original and pleasingly unmodified, including an eight track Radiomobile sound system and correct three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel. 

The Mechanics

4,235cc Jaguar XK straight six engine 

4spd manual gearbox with later full synchromesh gearbox 

Well presented engine bay

£16,000 mechanical recommissioning between September 2022 and March 2023

Unused since this work was completed

This covered the full running gear and is documented in photographs 

The E-Type’s migration to the larger 4.2litre XK engine and full synchromesh gearbox makes the Series 1 cars like this one particularly sought after for their improved drivability. We understand that the displayed mileage is accurate and the car’s sparing use by the vendor’s family seems to confirm that. A JHT certificate confirms it is a matching numbers car. 

The car was dry stored between 2011 and late 2022 before being extensively recommissioned by specialist AJ Autocraft at a cost of over £16,000. This work was completed in March 2023 when the car was MOT’d last. The vendor tells us that it has been unused since, something that the MOT test verifies - it displays less than 100 miles more. 

This then is an opportunity for the buyer to benefit from all that work. It was extensive as the array of invoices shown in the photographs demonstrate. Running well and with no known issues, this car passes to the buyer in great order.

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?
