THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Dean Edmonds' Jaguar E-Type was bought new by him and in keeping with his careful retention of records can boast a file which begins at day one. One-upping the norm of solely a Heritage Certificate, within this considerable documentation, there is even the original window sticker confirming its arrival in the U.S. through Jaguar Cars Inc. through New York and to Auto-Engineering, Inc. of Lexington, Massachusetts. Its price was $5,723, for which there is the original invoice from the dealer and the cancelled check! The invoice confirms its matched chassis to engine to this day. Mr. Edmonds was able to request that he himself collected it from the port in New Jersey and drove it up to the supplying dealer for its pre-delivery service, something he would relate in correspondence later. In addition to the purchase information, there is the Jaguar wallet including handbook, service guide and warranty card.

Within a year Mr. Edmonds was in touch with Carl Blackwell in California regarding the acquisition of a Weber conversion kit, which was purchased, but we are not certain was ever fitted, owing to troubles with its delivery. Additionally, Mr. Edmonds then wife purchased a Nardi steering wheel for the car.

Maintenance from 1979 with Seferian Escadrille Inc. in Cambridge, Mass notes the mileage gently increase from 1729 to about 3,000 miles in 1990. It would ultimately increase to only 7,234 at the time of cataloguing.

Over the course of its life, Mr. Edmonds corresponded with various Jaguar Club members regarding the specification of his car, as knowledge of the production improved and raised the question of the apparent anomaly of a car with a relatively early number having open headlights and interior 'toggle' switches, all of this makes interesting reading. Today, of course the knowledge is more refined, an indeed it seems that there is no definitive 'line in the sand', however for the record, and this was something that Mr. Edmonds was proud of, the car was almost certainly one of, if not the last to arrive in the U.S. still with the triple SU carburetor set up, but with open headlights!

By 2004, despite its modest mileage it seems that Mr. Edmonds felt his much loved 37 year old Jaguar deserved a 'birthday' and owing to the good relationship that he had with Manfred's Automotive Specialties in Naples, who are known particularly for their body and paintwork, the car was entrusted to them. Over the course of about 18 months, the XKE was stripped and repainted in its original color scheme and the mechanical and technical aspects overhauled. A new top and carpets were fitted, but the original leather seats retained. The net effect of the work can still be seen to this day, most likely representing the reminiscences of the new car that Dean Edmonds had collected from the docks in November '67, an utterly beautiful opalescent maroon roadster.

So here it stands, most probably one of the lowest recorded XKE's in the world, at just over 7,200, with single ownership, extremely rare specification, a well-documented file and sympathetic refurbishment - now presented for sale for the first time since new.
