|This exceptional E Type was supplied new by Coombs of Guildford whose proprietor, John Coombs, was heavily involved with Jaguars in competition at the time and had very close links with the Jaguar factory. HPD 10C is one of two Series 1 4.2 Coupes specially modified by Coombs from new, the engine was tuned and the suspension modified to his specification. Coombs subsequently maintained the car for many years.|
Eight years ago the car was purchased by Mike Birtwhistle, an established Jaguar collector who only buys the finest most original cars. At this point the Coupe had covered just 14,000 miles and was exactly as it had left the factory. Less than 6,000 miles have since been added since, most on a single European tour, making the total around 20,000. This remarkably low mileage is supported by the history file which includes service invoices and over thirty previous MOT certificates.
The car was lightly renovated by Mr Birtwhistle around eight years ago. It was repainted using the original cellulose paint in order to achieve an exact factory finish, it was noted during this work that the car retains all of its original panels and shows no sign of any previous work or damage. All mechanical components were removed and refurbished as required. The braking system and suspension were completely overhauled and all bushing was replaced, as were the driveshaft joints. The interior remains completely original and unmarked. All of the tools and handbooks are with the car as is the original unused spare wheel and tyre.
In June 2007 the car achieved first place at the Jaguar Drivers Club International Jaguar E Type Register Concours d’Elegance at Prescott.
This numbers matching example in such superb original order and with a complete comprehensive history is almost certainly unique.
