Footnotes

  • Manufactured on 3 July 1963, left-hand drive chassis number '879769' was despatched to the famous German Jaguar dealer and racer, Peter Lindner. The E-Type found its way home in the 1980s before undergoing restoration and conversion by renowned marque specialist, Rob Beere. The work was completed in 1996 and is estimated to have cost circa £100,000 (see file). The car was then raced for around five years before being put up for auction in December 2001 and purchased by the lady vendor's late husband as he loved Historic GT racing and in particular the Lightweight E-types. He never raced the E-type, as he did not have a race licence, and even after one had been obtained the car was used primarily for track days or for testing days to assess any improvements he made to it. The car was track tested at Brands Hatch where he made changes to the exhaust system to comply with the noise regulations, although it is not known if the car would be acceptable today.

    In 2011, the owner decided that it would be more economical to drive to tracks instead of paying for transportation. He set about making the E-Type road legal and the car was duly registered with the DVLA as 'AMO 390A'. The car passed its MoT in August 2011, but having purchased a car trailer the owner decided not to continue with annual MoTs. An engineer by trade, he enjoyed working on the E-Type more than driving it, and would spend hours maintaining and improving the car to keep it in perfect running order.

    We are advised by the vendor that the engine runs well and sounds great, with no untoward noises nor smoke from the exhaust. No problems have been encountered selecting gears when reversing in and out of the garage, and the clutch has been checked recently. The chassis is said to be structurally sound and has not been involved in any on- or off-track accidents since the 2011 MoT. The bodywork likewise is said to be excellent, with no mis-aligned panels or dents, no signs of rust on steel parts, and aluminium panels in very good condition. Paintwork is described as excellent, with only a few minor blemishes, while the electrics were checked by a specialist classic car electrician in April 2021. Recently started and road tested after a few years of inactivity, the E-Type is said to run well and should be a wonderful purchase for any lover of Historic GT cars.

    New FIA papers have been applied for, FIA barcode sticker supplied and a few minor homologation issues identified (see file).
