1961 Jaguar E type Series 1 Flat Floor Roadster

Chassis number: 850262

Engine number: R 2557-9

Registration number: 370CYT

An early production flat floor  car being the 262nd produced.  This car had a nut & bolt restoration in the early 1990's when it was purchased & kept for 25 years by no lesser person then the Managing director of Jaguar cars.  He was responsible for keeping the car regualrly waxoyl'd & also re-uniting the car with its original number plate 379CYT which it wears to this day.

Minor modifications include fitting a brake servo, a new bonnet during restoration & conversion to run on unleaded fuel.  The car started life in Opalescent Bronze & was restored in Metallic Gunmetal Grey.  The interior is of red leather in fine order with matching carpets as when new.

This is a car that has never in recent years seen rain & has been used sparingly for high days & holidays.  The current owner like the last owner keeps the car in an air conditioned car cacoon when not in use.

Assorted large bills from JD classics come with the car which previously was restored by The E Type Centre.  The car has covered 85,657 miles since new.  It sits on chrome wire wheels held on with knock off spinners & is  shod with 4 good tyres.

Ths restoraiton has held up very well with the car being in fine condition thoughout with no rust at all.  This is a car with a very very light patina of use rather then being a concours garage queen making it a very useable car. Indeed it has successfully parcipitated in a number of rallys & events in recent years. It starts instantly & drives exactly as an early E Type should with the exception of the brakes which are far more effective then when the car left Browns Lane.
