Lot details
Registration No: ONW239B
Chassis No: 861626

Ever since the celebration of their 50th anniversary back in 2011, E-Types have represented ever stronger currency, as befits the motorcar described at birth by none other than Enzo Ferrari as 'the most beautiful car in the world'. In common with most appreciating automotive assets, it is the early versions that are the most sought after, and in the E-Type's case this means the 3.8-engined Series 1 cars which, from the time of the 1961 launch at the Geneva Salon, were available in either Roadster or Fixed Head Coupe guise.

Most examples of Jaguar's comely cat have been restored by now, and 'ONW 239B' is no exception. The work was undertaken last year by Mark Waud of Yorkshire Classic Cars, who the vendor describes as having 'a formidable reputation for superb workmanship'. When it left the factory, this particular Coupe was finished in Opalescent Golden Sand teamed with Red interior trim. Following a bare metal strip, and refurbishment that included a new front subframe and door skins, the car was repainted in a suitably distinguished shade of Dark Blue and completely retrimmed in contrasting Grey leather. The engine was totally refurbished, the dynamo replaced by an alternator and the four-speed Moss gearbox superseded by a more modern five-speed one (the original is available by separate negotiation). The brakes have been upgraded with Coopercraft parts, while other new items of running gear include dampers, springs, springs and tyres.

The restoration remains sufficiently fresh that the refurbished engine is yet to be run in, and the vendor unsurprisingly still classes the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, six-cylinder XK engine and new manual gearbox as all being in 'excellent' condition. The indicated mileage of this now pristine Jaguar stands at an eminently plausible 72,000 miles. Offered with Jaguar heritage certificate and a large collection of invoices, this fine-looking motorcar, 'ONW 239B' is now ready for somebody new to enjoy.
