When presented with a car built and prepared by someone as respected as Brian Wilkinson (of Safety Devices Fame), once should take note!

Following on from his huge success with the Safety Devices business, Brian was looking for new challenges and set up Zealia Engineering, specifically to make his own Lightweight E Types – Approximately, 10 cars were built.
Each Zealia was unique, and such was the attention to detail taken over each example, the car we are advertising here took 3 years to complete.

This particular car is based on an early 1963 Series 1 3.8l chassis.
Chassis 879798 was supplied abroad in LHD when new and still retains her original engine block and body tub.
Finished in the original primrose yellow with correct black leather, this car was heavily modified to a Lightweight specification in homage to the very famous and early version of the John Coombes E-type, known by its’ registration number of 4 WPD.

To this day, Brian’s creation offers expectional performance, road holding and ever so alluring looks!  The specification is as follows:

3.8 litre engine built to competition specification

5 speed Getrag gearbox

Original body tub, reinforced as per the original lightweights

Half roll cage by Safety Devices

Head rests

Correct pattern peg drive lightweight wheels

Dry sump lubrication

Ventilated boot floor for inboard disc cooling

Correct black hardura to floors, sills & gearbox tunnel

45 DCOE side draught Webers

Prior to sale, the car will be fully serviced by our own workshop, Revive-iconics Ltd.
