1961 Jaguar E Type FHC The E-Type that turned heads at the 1961 Scottish Motor Show has been brought back to its former glory by world-leading restorers Classic Motor Cars (CMC). Chassis No. 15 was the fifteenth right hand drive fixed head coupe E-Type to leave Jaguar’s production line in 1961 and was used as a press car at the Scottish Motor Show held at the Kelvin Hall, Glasgow, in November that year. The car then moved on to private ownership and went missing for decades until CMC discovered it in Cernay, France, in late 2013. Exactly 2,956hrs were spent restoring every nut and bolt of this E-Type at CMC’s modern workshops in Bridgnorth, saving as much of the original car as possible and bringing back its show-stopping condition. Tim Leese, Managing Director of Classic Motor Cars, said: “We found Chassis No. 15 in Cernay, a French town close to the border with Germany. It had been owned by the same person since 1976, who dismantled it probably some twenty years ago and that is as far as he got. “The car was underneath some covers in a garden, very rusty and corroded – there was even a bird’s nest in the rear quarter! We carried out a full nut and bolt restoration, which proved to be quite a challenge due to the sorry state in which it was found.” However, CMC is known to never back down from a challenging restoration and has a reputation for having restored some of the most historic E-Types, including Lofty England’s Chassis No. 4, the Lindner-Nöcker Lightweight and 1VHP, the first right hand drive fixed head coupe off the production line. Tim said: “No detail was too small and extensive work has been carried out in the paint and trim shops so that the car can now boast its original colour combination of pearl grey exterior and light blue interior, being the only one produced in those colours in 1961. “This was one of the six E-Types on display at the 1961 Scottish Motor Show. After restoring it to its former glory, we thought it was only fitting that the car returned to the centre stage 55 years later and what could be better than the London Classic Car Show.”
1955 Jaguar XK140 Roadster POA This car is probably the most original XK140 Roadster in the world. It has less than 22,000 recorded miles from new and is a great testament to the original owner, who cared for and maintained the car for more than 46 years. The first owner, Rene Savoie, ordered the car namely Jaguar XK140SE in the beautiful combination of Suede Green exterior with Suede Green leather and it was dispatched to Massachusetts on the 18th February 1955. Mr Savoie reluctantly sold the car when he could no longer physically drive it and it passed to his long time property manager, at the time of sale the recorded mileage was just 20,000. Over the last eight years, the car has been part of a collection of highly original unrestored sports cars. The recorded mileage today shows 21,958 miles. We have completed some light recommissioning work in order to make it safe and reliable. Although the car is sitting on its original Dunlop Gold Seal tyres, we would recommend that these be changed if you were going to use it as they are now somewhat perished. The body and structure are in remarkable condition with very good panel gaps. The engine bay is excellent with the original chassis plate attached and the correct C-Type cylinder head fitted. Even the original cheney hose clips are still in place. The interior is also in remarkable condition along with the original carpets and door casings and we are currently feeding the leather to improve its suppleness. A full tonneau cover is included, which again is in remarkable condition. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a wonderfully preserved Jaguar XK140 Roadster in the best specification.
1973 Jaguar E-Type V12 Roadster One of the rarest and most unusual colour combinations produced by Jaguar, namely heather with cerise trim. This E-Type has been looked after and maintained to a high standard throughout its life. The last owner purchased it in 1989 from a previous long time lady owner. The car remains in original Jaguar specification and runs and drives very well. We have a good pictorial history file compiled by the previous owner detailing the extensive maintenance work completed over the last 30 years. The Series 3 V12 E-Type is still very underrated when compared with the earlier Series 1 Roadster; hence you can purchase a lot more for your money. Come for a test drive and inspection as this car is real value for money.

1976 Daimler V12 Coupe This is the rarest of all the XJ Coupe range with only some 408 manufactured. Only a handful remain, making it the most desirable model. The car was restored to better than new condition with the sole objective of winning concours competitions. It was shown at various events culminating in champion of champions October 1993 where it was awarded first place, the car then went on to win other major awards throughout 1994. The restoration covered every aspect of the car, from the body and structure through to the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, electrics, interior and chrome. Winning a concours event is very difficult, the level of detail and finish required has to be second to none On completion of its concours career, the owner took the car off the road and it remained in dry storage until we were fortunate to acquire it recently. We have been through the car and carried out a mechanical recommissioning programme in order to bring it back to show-winning condition. Every aspect of this motor car is excellent, the underside and wheel arches are as clean and detailed as the upper surfaces. Details in and around the engine compartment would suggest that the restoration had been completed in 2014 and not in 1993. The current condition is certainly better than the day it left Browns Lane and it is probably the best example available. The XJ Coupe models are fast appreciating classic Jaguars and this particular model, being one of only 408, has to be the one to own
