Footnotes

  • Built at the very end of 'Series 1' production, this original, right-hand drive, UK-registered E-Type roadster is finished in the quintessentially period colour scheme of Carmen Red with light beige leather trim. The car was supplied new via Jaguar main agent Henlys and retailed by Park Garages Ltd of Watford. In September 1967, first owner Mr Colin Hind of Kenton, Middlesex took delivery of the E-Type, which carried the distinctive registration number 'XUR 7F'. Mr Hind owned the car from 1967 to 1969 when Mr Leonard Apps, a friend, purchased it from him. The E-Type was to remain in Mr Apps' ownership for the next 35 years before passing to the current vendor.

    In 2005 a comprehensive, bare metal, jig-assembled body restoration was carried out by bodywork and paint specialists Matchbox Restorations of Liverpool. A dedicated E-Type chassis alignment platform supplied by RM&J Smith of Nantwich was used, with the body panels required sourced from Martin Robey. A factory-specification interior was supplied by the Trim Centre, and BAS International supplied the black mohair hood. Re-chroming was carried out by ACF Howells.

    When planning the car's restoration, the third and present owner chose a number of sensible modifications including up-rated engine support frames; Gaz adjustable suspension; Coopercraft 4-piston front brake callipers; chromed wire wheels shod with high-performance Continental tyres; a Kenlowe electric cooling fan; halogen headlights; and a new galvanised fuel tank. Far too lengthy to reproduce here, a full list of all upgrades and new components fitted is available for inspection (recommended).The engine had been overhauled by the previous owner. In 2006 the cylinder head was removed to carry out an inspection of the engine block; all six cylinders were found to be unmarked, with pistons stamped '+20', indicating that the engine has had only one re-bore since new.

    In the summer of 2014, the current owner re-commissioned Matchbox Restorations to refresh the bodywork. MR's experienced professional craftsmen spent hundreds of hours preparing the body and resetting the individual door, bonnet and boot gaps in preparation for the Glasurit supplied Carmen Red paint. In the process, the bonnet was disassembled into its ten major components, with every panel individually painted on each side before re-assembly. This time consuming procedure is the only way to ensure that paint is protecting every panel. Another indication of that same Matchbox Restorations attention to rust-proofing can be seen on the car's underside which was first fully primed to accept the under-seal before being painted in the Carmen Red body colour. The result is simply outstanding.

    The new E-Type Fabs engine support frames were painted off the car, and cavity wax was generously sprayed through 360 degrees inside the frame tubing before they were attached to the bulkhead. All new body panels were sprayed with 'weld through' primer before assembly to the body, and all box sections including sill members were injected with Waxoyl after assembly.
    A full photographic record of the 2005-2009 restoration is supported by a multitude of invoices detailing the hundreds of parts fitted. Photographs of the 2014 repaint are on file also together with a current MoT certificate and UK V5C registration document.

    A timeless symbol of 1960s 'Cool Britannia', the Jaguar E-Type is one of the most significant and desirable of post-war British sports cars. Presented in beautiful condition having covered only 1,000 miles since restoration, this cosseted example comes with the essential Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirming that it is a matching-numbers car, finished in its original factory colour, which to this day still has the original body number stamping on the boot panel.
