- Three owners from new
- In original state
- One of the best versions of the E-type
- No reserve
Manufactured on July 19, 1965 and sold new in France, this E-Type convertible spent the following year in the hands of a farmer in Feurs. It was from him that Albert Prost acquired the car in 1970. The file includes several maintenance bills, including one from as recent as 2011 and states that the brake has been redone (pipes, servo and master cylinder).
With three owners from new, the car is in original condition. It was painted in the 1980s, which allowed time for the paint to have the correct patina and wear some traces of use. The interior has attractive grey upholstery in original condition, slightly cracked, a witness to history that this car has seen. The large wooden wheel does not have any blemish, neither the dashboard, which is equipped with an original Thomson Ducretet radio. The hood is in good condition.
The E-Type is driveable, but could benefit from servicing before regular use. It is rare to discover a convertible E-Type in such a state, unrestored and one that has belonged to only three owners. Additionally, it is the best version: a Series 1, with its headlamps under Perspex covers and with the 4.2-liter engine. This E-Type will surely bring its new owner the joys of its powerful mechanicals, combined with the incomparable pleasures of a convertible body style.
