Footnotes

  • The first significant upgrade of Jaguar's sensational E-Type sports car occurred in October 1964 with the launch of a 4.2-litre version incorporating an all-synchromesh gearbox and a host of other improvements together with the bigger, torquier engine. Top speed remained unchanged at around 150mph, the main performance gains resulting from the larger engine being improved acceleration and flexibility. In 1966 Jaguar extended the E-Type's appeal, launching an additional 'family friendly' 2+2 coupé on a longer wheelbase which, as well as the additional rear seats, boasted greater headroom, more luggage space, and improved heating/ventilation, while automatic transmission became an option for the first time.

    A relatively early example of its type (the 2+2 chassis number sequence commenced at '1E50001') this E-Type Coupé is believed to have belonged to the late owner since the 1970s. The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate confirms that the car was manufactured in right-hand drive configuration and left the factory equipped with the desirable manual transmission, while its original colour scheme was Opalescent Silver Blue with Dark Blue interior trim. Despatched from the factory on 31st October 1966, the E-Type was retailed via P J Evans of Birmingham and first registered as 'HOJ 9D' (for a period of time it carried the cherished number 'KTG 96').

    Invoices on file detail an extensive restoration carried out during the early 1990s, while more recently (in 2011) the car received a new water pump, electronic fuel pump, electronic ignition, and front/rear footwell carpets. Since restoration the E-Type has been stored and used only very occasionally in recent years, mostly on private roads. The car's mechanical condition is not known but it is being lightly serviced it was said to start and run well when taken to the MoT station in recent weeks. Nevertheless, more extensive servicing and general checks are advised prior to continued use. The car comes with its service voucher booklet, a V5C Registration Certificate, the aforementioned documentation and a current MoT.
