Info gathered with permission from:
Reports from August of 1975 stated 875282 was once owned in New Jersey, but its current location was then unknown. It was reported to have had a leather pouch on the center console to hold the T-key, chrome wire wheels, cut-out louvres and a modified interior. It was stated to have once had a front-end accident. It reportedly had 230,000 miles

Car recently imported to England. Going through a very extensive and thorough restoration by well-regarded professionals, with the project overseen by a specialist in very early E Types such as this. All the special early details unique to the 'Outside Bonnet Lock' cars have been identified, and will be preserved.

Seller's descritpion :
Early Jaguar E-Type can be identified by several distinguishing features such as "welded louvers" or "flat floors", the unique and rarest feature being the "outer bonnet lock" ("OBL")
used only on the first cars manufactured. Each of these three features was subsequently dropped, making the OBL the most remarkable and rare version of one of the most iconic sports cars in history.
As with most cars, this is the first iteration, embodying the original design in its purest form, which becomes a much sought after collector's item, whether it is the first Porsche 356 or 911, the Ferrari 250 SWB or even the modest Mini. This is the position occupied today by the Jaguar E-Type with "outer hood lock".
Chassis 875282 was delivered new to Jaguar Cars New York USA and sold to Mr. John D. Rogasnet. The car was later identified in New Jersey. At that time, she would have traveled 230,000 miles, clearly used as Sir William Lyons wanted!
A July 1980 EJAG Magazine article, written by Dr. Tom Haddock, a leading early E-Type historian and author of the "E-Type Six Cylinder Originality Guide", indicates that the car had been added to his registry the very first cars.
The car was put away and forgotten before being discovered in 2016 and imported to the UK, by a discerning collector. Although in need of a full restoration after years of abandonment, it was remarkably well preserved, retaining the important features only found on the first models of E-Types produced. This is why a long and detailed restoration was undertaken, preserving as much as possible the original car.
While some 1961 E-Types claim to have survived fifty-seven years, very few do so with their original mechanical components and body panels, as the catering industry now produces everything needed for create an entirely new car from a simple chassis number. So, most of the restored E-Types are a mix of original and new parts, with a finish not meeting period factory standards and not meeting original specifications. Since replacing body panels such as fenders, door linings or hood during restoration is often cheaper and faster than restoring original parts, the authenticity of an OBL body is the main determining factor of its value, provided the car is "matching numbers".
Model 875282 is an example that effectively retains its original engine and body panels, all of which have been carefully restored and preserved. Due to its uniqueness, the restoration of 875282 was different, with six specific goals governing the restoration process:
- Retain all the original characteristics of cars manufactured in 1961 and in particular the "exterior hood locks".
- Restore the car to the original Jaguar factory finishes and avoid over-restoration. For example, many original chrome parts from the factory have been retained.
- Use improved components only if they are compatible with current traffic conditions, eg a larger radiator which retains the original "fin" design.
- Avoid mechanical updates such as adjustable shock absorbers, larger brake calipers, synchronized gearbox, etc.
- Keep as much as possible the existing patina of the cars and not lose its "identity" during the process.
- Where possible, restore components and avoid the use of replacement kits.
After the bodywork and shell were stripped bare, the car was assessed, and in the interest of its structural integrity and long-term safety, a replacement floor and Eiffel Tower were provided by Martin Robey.
Many older E-Types lose their original hood hinge support frame or "Picture Frame" bearing the chassis number, often as a result of an accident or corrosion due to combined water ingress. heat from the engine, but 875282 still retains its original components.
The overall restoration was entrusted to the meticulous work of Neil Howe Racing, the engine having been carried out by Guy Broad, both leading workshops in the preparation of Jaguars. When dismantled, the engine, despite its high mileage, turned out to be remarkably original, just like the rest of the car.
