Jaguar 1962 (Historic Plate) Red
According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate, this Jaguar E Type S1 3.8 Roadster - Chassis No: 878168 was manufactured on 18th September 1962 and despatched to Jaguar Distributor Peter Lindner in Frankfurt, Germany on 4th October 1962 and supplied to its first owner - Lieutenant N W Cunningham.
It was imported back to the UK in 1999 and restored and converted to RHD by Swallow Engineering in Essex in June/July 2001. The engine was also rebuilt with the mileage at the time being 51,000.
It is finished in its original colour of Carmen Red but now has Black trim rather than its original Dark Blue, new Black Mohair Soft Top, Black leather Seats, Black Carpets, 3.8 Litre straight Six Engine, 4 Speed Moss Gearbox and Chrome Wire Wheels, Cobra 'Tracker', Stereo/CD player and a new original specification 15" wooden Steering Wheel.
The car has covered a believed genuine 62,000 miles from new, but it has only covered 11,000 miles since the Engine rebuild and the car was the subject of a cosmetic restoration by Essex County Classic's at the end of 2010 before being sold by ourselves to the current owner in May 2011.
Since then, it has been further improved mechanically with new Gaz Shock Absorbers and Springs, new Polybush Suspension Bushes and Ball Joints, new Steering Column, new Steering Rack, new Brake Discs and Pads, new Hi-Torque Starter Motor, new Wiring Loom, uprated Alternator, a new Clutch and lots lots more. In total, he has spent a further £20,000 on the car with E Type UK during the last 5 years and all invoices for the works are contained in the history file.
The car really does need to be seen and driven to be fully appreciated. Upon sale it will come with our own customer care package including an HPI/provenance Check and Certificate, 55-point pre-delivery inspection, new 12 Month MOT and 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
A fantastic car to drive and a good investment for the future!
