This rare early E-type left the factory in November 1961 finished in Gunmetal metallic with red trim.
Its late owner purchased the car from The E-type Centre, Chilcote, Staffordshire, in November 2002 (purchase receipt on file). Previously registered EMM 8, the car had been fully restored by The E-Type Centre immediately prior to delivery, as evidenced by their accompanying photographic record (perusal recommended). A bare-metal respray was carried out as part of the restoration and the following upgrades were fitted: Kenlowe cooling fan, electronic ignition, Coopercraft 4-pot brake calipers with Kevlar pads, stainless-steel exhaust, Thatcham Category 1 alarm, Polybushes front and rear, halogen headlamps, door mirrors, chromed wire wheels, alternator conversion, and a Series 2 brake servo conversion (detailed invoice on file).
Following the completion of the restoration, the E-type was used sparingly and for most of the past 16 years has been kept inside a Carcoon when not in use.
