History          
Year 1962
The 1962 Jaguar E-Type fixed head coupé has been the subject of a meticulous restoration by a motor racing engineer who is a long-standing Jaguar enthusiast. An original right-hand-drive example, this motor car was manufactured on 26th  January 1962 and despatched on 7th February to distributors, Sagers, of  Bulawayo, Rhodesia for J.G. Raenk of Bancroft, Northern Rhodesia. In 1981  the car went to South Africa before returning to the UK in 2002, the car was   acquired by the vendor and a three-year, £60,000 restoration project began.   Finished in Carmen red and fitted with a webasto sunshine roof, this is a rare opportunity to acquire an early flat-floor E-Type in such fine condition. The car has covered only around 40 miles since completion and is expected to sell for around £40,000. Believed unsold - or perhaps withdrawn.
