1965 Jaguar E type series 1 4.2 Litre FHC.

Chassis number: 1E20384
Registarion number: DWK464C

On the 12th of April, 1965 His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent took delivery of this iconic sports car & had it delivered to & registered in Germany where we has serving in the armed forces with the 11th Hussars. Anecdotally, he recalls regularly seeing an indicated 150 MPH whilst driving on Germany's then relatively traffic free autobahn system during his sojourn there. He used the car extensively including a lap of Goodwood race circuit upon his return with the then 8 year old Lord March as a passenger. There is a wonderful picture in the history of a somewhat older Lord March Lapping Goodwood wIth HRH at the wheel during the Goodwood Revival celebrations in 2011. He also did more then a few Laps of the famed Nurburgring when back in the day one simply turned up, bought a voucher & were turned loose on the track to "Run what you Brung."

After His Royal Highness the next owner was The famed Coach-Building Company Offord & Co, prior to passing through several other sets of hands to the current owner.

A plethora of pictures, correspondence from Kensington Palace & Lord March as well as various other luminaries such as Ralph Lauren, comes with the car & attests to its simply wonderful history. Indeed we have rarely had a car with such outstandingly & beautifully detailed provenance. Being of a personal nature, the aforementioned correspondence with the Prince & Lord March is being kept private & will only be released to the next owner rather then being available for general public viewing.  A huge sheaf of expired tax discs & Ministry of Transport certificates also come with the car.

The car is pleasingly finished in its original colour of Opalescent dark green with light tan hide to the interior. A Webasto sunroof is fitted as is the frontal badge bar as seen in period pictures of the car kindly provided by H.R.H. The car also has a tool kit & jack under the rear floor where the spare wheel resides. Overall the car is matching numbers, in impeccable order throughout, being close to concours & is simply a credit to the current owner.

Recent works include a full engine rebuild & new suspension bushes etc to put the car in tip top driving order.
