Description

- In the current ownership since 1974 (2nd owner) and registering less than 20,000 miles

- Sable with Beige leather, manual transmission UK RHD example

- Restored in 1987 by Southern Classics and now requiring attention to cosmetics

Owned by the vendor since 1974, XTN 372H has had just two private owners from new. A copy old logbook shows it was first registered to a company of the original owner who then transferred it into his own name. The dealer from whom the car was purchased also registered the car totalling four entries but just one private previous keeper. The mileage in 1974 was 7,302 and whilst the owner cannot warrant the mileage was correct when purchased, he can confirm he has covered just c.11,600 miles, the odometer currently reading just c.18,900 miles. Stored from 1978, in 1986 the bodywork and paint were restored by Southern Classics and in 1987 the engine and gearbox overhauled by Peter Dodd (at c.17,500 miles). A new bonnet was also fitted around this time. In 1990 the seats were restored by Leather Renovations. Following a further period of storage, the car was recommissioned by Thomas Barclay Ltd at a cost of some £8,000 in 2015-16. Some attention to its microblistered paintwork is needed, but this low-ownership, low-mileage E-Type is well worth the effort.
