Hagerty’s Own E-Type

img_8531

While researching the gauntlet panel/shift dome/shift tower for our E-Type I decided to lookup McKeel Hagerty’s own 1966 E-Type.

That’s because his car is a 20,000-mile, original-paint and original-interior survivor.

The car is almost completely untouched from original delivery minus a few items like hoses, clamps, ignition loom and header tank.

Here it is pictured from the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Chassis 1E11307 for reference.

The 13th anniversary Jaguars on the Island was held by the Jaguar Club of Victoria which and also sanctioned by the Jaguar Club of North America.

Front and center was a Jaguar XJ220 finished in Monza Red with only 860km on the odometer. This chassis SAJJEAEX8AX220625 was delivered new to Switzerland and is among the last 10 cars made in the 270 car production.

E-Type 1E32915: Chassis Prep

IMG_7780

Finally got some time to work on our own 1967 E-Type chassis 1E32915.

This was at one point equipped with a 13.9:1 Shelby V8 and now are reverting it back to original spec.

The transmission tunnel is an absolute mess so thankfully Chuck from Monocoque Metalcraft can supply us with the four-or-so missing pieces.

And now begins the massive parts hunt for Jaguar unobtanium. At the top of the list is a 4.2 intake manifold if anyone has one going spare :).

“instead of getting it fixed he (the owner) put the car into storage in a lock up until the 1980s, he then moved it to his garden where is remained under a tarpaulin until the present vendor rescued it in 2015”

Leaving collector cars out to rot usually never ends in a good story.

That is unless it’s an early 3.8 FHC Jaguar and the value has recently skyrocketed.

Coys and the owner of this E-Type stand to profit from this storage misadventure by offering chassis number 861107 at their 2016 Spring Classics event.

Coy’s says the car’s fourth owner Frank Riches “raced both the E-Type and his MGTF at Oulton Park, Brands Hatch and Blackbushe between 1967 and 1969. Frank would drive the E-type to the circuit with the MG behind and would then race both cars and drive home! “

They also describe the condition “This wonderful “Barn Find” car is in original condition, with matching numbers and has never been restored. It retains all the features it carried in 1969 and is possibly one of the most original examples remaining today. The interior could be restored given it has all the original switches, gauges and tooled aluminium panels along with the original steering wheel etc. The seats have a lovely patina and should be saved. Obviously the car needs a total restoration but it has all the ingredients to make a superb example – this is a true rarity!”

It will be offered at Monday 7th March at the Coys Spring Classic Sale.

*** Update: sold for £62,000***
