This concours V12 E-type was used sparingly by its primary owner for more than 30 years. In 1994 Stew Jones (Series 111 restoration specialists) were asked to undertake the restoration of the car with the objective of building a near perfect V12 E-type.
The car was totally disassembled with over 1000 photos together with careful markings showing the exact position of panels, bolts, and washers.
Every panel was painstakingly reworked to the way the factory had intended, the monocoque was stripped and restored on a rotator. Every mechanical part was rebuilt or renewed.
In the pursuit of originality careful attention was given to the use of the correct bolt heads, hose clamps and wire ties. Unavailable stickers were researched and printed.
The result was that at the end of 1994 this wonderful Jaguar scored 99.96 points across 4 shows, winning the Class 7 National Championship in the USA.
In 1995 the car went onto score 100 points in three different shows, being the first ever Class 7 100 points concours winner.
The car has its Heritage Certificate and since being in the UK has been used very occasionally and in dry weather.
This magnificent V12 E-type could with minimal effort continue to compete at the highest level in shows. It would also be the perfect vehicle to tour Europe or journey to some fabulous events such as Le Mans Classics.
