Description

Delightfully presented in Willow Green over magnolia with a black hoodKnown history from day one with only three owners since new in 1967Fresh paint and a re-trim in South Carolina in the early 2000sOn the Concours circuit in the States during 2013 with much successImported to the UK and a total engine rebuild by E-Type UK. Matching numbersRemaining in superb condition throughout, a really pretty carYour earliest inspection is encouraged and welcomedBuilt towards the end of Series 1 production, this beautifully original E-Type found its first home in Seattle,Washington State with John M Fernandez before passing to its second custodian, Peter Wilzbach, in South Carolina in the late 1990s.Clearly in need of a little TLC by this time, over the next few years,the Jaguar was regularly used but received attentionas and when required and this included a fresh coat of Willow Green paint and a full retrim, with the remainder of the car beingchecked and detailed where needed. The body is believed to be still wearing its original panels and under the outer skin, all remains superbly originalwith the correct stampings in place, the front frame being the most obvious. It was during this period that the E-Type embarked on a successful stint on the Concoursshow circuit winning 'Best Jaguar in Class' within the Jaguar Clubs of North America in 2013 scoring a tremendous 99.4%, and the trophy remains with the car tothis day.Shortly after, the carwas advertised for sale in Hemmings Motor News and sold on the first day to our vendor who flew from London and when he sawthe car, was so impressed that hepaid the asking price, shipping the car back to the UK to join his small collection. On itsarrival, a program of mechanical works was decided upon to raise the vehicleto its current level. This included a total strip and rebuild of the engine by E-Type UK, rear axle removal, a diff rebuild including a change to Euro-spec diff ratios and the car was fully detailedbefore everything was reunited. Remaining in superb condition throughout and still with its original toolkit in place, this genuine three-owner E-Type is an absolute delight.On the button, sensibly guided and waiting for only its fourth proud ownersince leaving the factory on 15 February 1967, this is an excellent opportunity to own a cared for Series 1 in one of the most attractive colour combinations we have seen.You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location between 16th and 30th July.
