Opalescent Dark Blue with Grey trim. UK RHD Matching Numbers. Ch. No.: 850305. Engine No. R3168-9. Very collectable Flat Floor example.
Factory records confirm that chassis no.850305 was dispatched from Browns Lane on 28th December 1961 and the car was first registered on 12th January 1962. The original colour was opalescent dark blue with grey leather interior, a colour scheme which this car retains. In 1987 the car was the subject of a painstaking restoration to coachwork, trim and mechanical aspects, maintaining the car as closely as possible in all respects to original specification. Detailed bills are available for inspection. The current recorded mileage is 57,000 or so miles and MoT records commencing in 1973 show the mileage then to be 15,127 miles, progressively increasing over the last 35 years to the present figure. It is equipped with an FM radio (working on LW setting) which also has a CD/iPod input lead. This is an exceptionally well presented example of the ‘Flat Floor’ E Type which has been driven, enjoyed and cherished. It comes with a good history file, old MoTs and restoration bills, old style log book, Jaguar Heritage Certificate and Swansea registration document. The car is of course exempted from Road Tax and MoT.
