Overview

Chassis Number 850342.
This original early
right hand drive, UK supplied example of the iconic Jaguar E Type Roadster was
delivered new by Henlys of London on the 22nd January 1962 to a Mr William
Alderton of Hertfordshire, has subsequently had just four owners and is at time
of print one of only twelve 1962 cars that have survived.
Complete with a
fantastic 4 inch history file which includes the original buff logbook and
Heritage Certificate and more recently has the most detailed and thorough
description and dated itemisation of the restoration that was carried out from
2001 to 2003. During this period the car benefitted from some sensible upgrades
including Coopercraft brakes, Getrag 5 speed gearbox (original specification
gearbox included with the car) and 6.5” wire wheels. During this
restoration the car was re-painted in Metallic Dark Blue and the interior was
completely re-trimmed in Tan leather to a high standard and presents extremely
well and features a Motolita steering wheel. The roof was also replaced during
this time.
The car has resided
in a major private collection until recently and has been fully serviced and
inspected prior to arriving with us here now, the car drives exceptionally well
and the uprated gearbox and brakes make this an ideal example for European
trips and regular usage. To add to this, the car has been fitted with the
desirable later ‘heel wells’, many E Types were retro fitted with this
modification in period and makes the cabin much more spacious and comfortable
again adding to the usability of this particular example.
An inspection
report by CKL Developments is also present in the documentation, this E Type is
ready to be used and enjoyed by its next owner.
