Car to be at auction 9/15
www.bonhams.com/auctions/22725/lot/305/

Auction description:
Lot 305* N
1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8-Litre 'Flat Floor' Coupé
Registration no. 5285 DD Chassis no. 860083 Engine no. R3095-9
£50,000 - 60,000
US$ 76,000 - 92,000
Auction 22725:
Goodwood Revival
12 Sep 2015 13:30 BST
Chichester, Goodwood

The 83rd right-hand drive coupé built, '860083' was sold new via Henlys Ltd, London on 18th December 1961. The E-Type came to Australia in the early 1980s but has never been registered there; the assumption is that it was personally imported. After importation it remained stored in a barn on a Queensland farm until its purchase by the current vendor in December 2014. By then the owner had died and his son sold both the farm and the E-Type. We are advised that the car was started occasionally and that it still starts and runs quite well. It is also virtually rust free and retains the original early-type bonnet with the welded-in louvres. A total of some 66,000 miles is displayed on the odometer. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, this rare and desirable early 'flat floor' E-Type comes with heritage certificate and instruction manual.

Sold by Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth in December 2020. Seller's description below.
www.classic-motor-cars.co.uk/classic-cars-for-sale/1961-jaguar-e-type-series-1-3 ...

This car is rather special, chassis number 83 supplied to Henlys in December 1961. This factory right hand drive matching numbers car has just completed a complete nut and bolt restoration in our workshops. Finished in its original colour scheme of Opalescent Gunmetal with contrasting Red hide interior, this car is nothing short of spectacular. Our talented engineers have lovingly put together this car to better than new condition and to its completely original form. Cars like this don't come onto the market any more. This beautiful car will benefit from our full restoration warranty.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
