This car is in auction on The Market website. The auction is LIVE now. The price shown is the lower estimate.

All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.

This example was built on 12th February 1964 and exported to Australia. It remained there, apparently in the care of only two owners, until exported to the UK in 2009. In July of that year it was registered here on a period-correct ‘B' plate but the following year changed hands and was re-registered with this rather valuable ‘JAG 44' number plate, which goes with the car. That plate is estimated at £6000 to £10,000 in value – compare similar numbers and you'll see.

At some point the car has had a very thorough repaint to an opalescent dark green – boot and engine bay just as well finished, for instance. The vendor thinks this was done prior to import but cannot be sure. In a hot, dry climate like Australia you avoid much of the rust but paint can suffer, so it's possible that the car was deemed worthy of a nose-to-tail repaint (and other work to brightwork and interior trim) either shortly before or shortly after import to the UK.

Before it left Australia, it apparently received a fully reconditioned 3.8-litre engine and an upgraded aluminium-cased Borg-Warner T12 transmission, the same as used in the slightly later E-type 4.2 automatics, and a much nicer, lighter unit than the old DG250 ‘box. So although the engine is fighting fit, the number does not match the Heritage Certificate.

After sale from the man who imported it, it remained with one keeper in Norfolk until our vendor bought it three and half years ago. He found the car hadn't been used much and deserved a recommissioning, which grew into a rebuild of the back axle and brakes, the suspension and eventually steering too, when the power steering rack developed a leak and had to be refurbished. The car has Coopercraft brakes all round.

It's now mechanically ‘belt and braces', as the vendor says, and in his words is ‘ready to drive anywhere – it doesn't get hot in traffic, it just drives absolutely superb.'
