The Ex-Briggs Cunningham Team/Walt Hansgen/Ed Crawford/John Fitch
1958 Lister-Jaguar 'Knobbly' Sports-Racing Two-Seater
Chassis no. (BHL) EE101
- The ownership-trail of this Lister-Jaguar has been verified since our catalogue closed for press. Briggs Cunningham retained the car after its period replacement by his Maserati 'Birdcage' cars and his famous series of E-Type Jaguars. He finally sold it with one of the Lightweight E-Types to Herb Wetson who later sold it on to Chris Drake. Its subsequent provenance then reads Drake - David Preece - Roger Williams - current vendor. Therefore, the car has continuous history from new.
Since our catalogue went to press, new photographic confirmation from the early 1970s has been found, verifying that this fine Lister-Jaguar is structurally as imported from Herb Wetson in the USA; Herb Wetson having kept it unused since he bought it direct from Briggs Cunningham.
